Both women were in town for rehearsals and were scheduled to dance on stage with Lil Wayne at his performance Wednesday night at the Comcast Theatre, said Sarah Cunningham, spokesperson for the tour. Slaughter and Hamby are contracted performers and not employees of the tour or Lil Wayne’s record label, she said. Six to eight dancers usually are part of the show, Cunningham said.
