Rapper Lil Wayne is on tour with pop-punk band Blink 182 all summer — or so fans thought, until the hip hop icon abruptly stopped his performance during a show in Virginia on Thursday, saying he may be done with the tour.

Lil Wayne and Blink 182’s next concert is set for Saturday at the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor. Lil Wayne first performed in Bangor in 2013.

Waterfront Concerts marketing director Elissa Young confirmed Friday that the concert is still on, and that they have received no reports that Lil Wayne will no longer be on the bill.

Lil Wayne later confirmed on Twitter that he will not be quitting the tour.

According to numerous accounts from fans who were at the concert at the Jiffy Lube Arena in Bristow, Virginia, on Thursday night, Lil Wayne only performed for about 20 minutes before telling the crowd he might be done with the tour, then leaving the stage. Lil Wayne, who’s real name is Dwayne Carter, has canceled a number of shows over the years, including several concerts due to seizures. Carter was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2013.
