    Juvenile’s 25th anniversary of ‘Back That Azz Up’ will bring an October show to Anaheim
    • June 12, 2024

    Anyone who’s been at a nightclub in the last 25 years has likely danced to rapper Juvenile’s party anthem “Back That Azz Up.” The timeless hit has become such a staple that it’s getting its own nationwide tour celebration.

    To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the song, Juvenile and the 400 Degreez Band will bring their tour to House of Blues Anaheim on Sunday, Oct. 20. Tickets for the event go on sale Friday, June 14 at 10 a.m. at

    Fans in Anaheim can share their favorite memories of the anthem or create new ones using the #BackThatAzzUpDay hashtag to win free tickets for the House of Blues show in October. Juvenile will select one participant from Anaheim who uses the hashtag on any social media platform.

    On Tuesday, June 11, the rapper’s hometown of New Orleans celebrated its first “Back That Azz Up Day,” recognizing the song that’s become a cultural phenomenon and a staple of the city’s vibrant musical heritage.

    “I am beyond excited to celebrate 25 years of ‘Back That Azz Up’ with my fans,” Juvenile said in a press release announcing the tour. “This song has been a huge part of my musical journey, and it’s amazing to see it still resonate with people today and I can’t wait for the moment each night of the tour when the song drops.”

    The hit track, produced by Mannie Fresh and featuring fellow rapper Lil Wayne, has made an indelible mark on pop culture, appearing in movies, TV, sporting events, celebrations, and memes. In 2021, it was listed as one of Rolling Stone’s “Top 500 Best Songs of All Time.” Last year in June, Juvenile performed a set of his greatest hits on NPR’s Tiny Desk with The 400 Degreez Band and said in a press release that he loved it so much fans will likely never catch him performing without a live band again.
