The Final Lap Tour, with special guests Busta Rhymes and Jeremih, will arrive at Talking Stick Resort Amphitheater on March 3, 2024, after a sixth-month delay.

Previously purchased tickets are valid for the reschedule concert, and seats remain available.

50 Cent was the second performer to postpone a summer concert at Talking Stick Resort Amphitheater, a large outdoor venue in west Phoenix.

50 Cent soared to fame with his 2003 debut album, “Get Rich or Die Tryin’,” which featured the smash “In Da Club.”.

He then released other popular hits, such as “Candy Shop,” “Just A Lil Bit” and “Disco Inferno.”
