The second annual Under The Influence of Music Tour will hit the road this summer, starring two of the most dynamic and exciting performers in music, Wiz Khalifa and A$AP Rocky. The expanded, 20-city epic hip-hop trek will also feature special guests B.o.B., Trinidad Jame$, Joey Bada$$ & Pro Era and Berner, with performances by Chevy Woodsand Smoke DZA.
The Live Nation-produced tour is set to begin on July 17th in the San Francisco Bay Area at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View and will culminate on August 11th at Cincinnati’s Riverbend Music Center.
“Last year’s Under the Influence Tour was such a blast, that we decided to double the number of dates and take the tour to even more of our fans across the country,” said tour founder Wiz Khalifa . Last year’s Under the Influence Tour was a major success, making stops at 10 Live Nation amphitheatres around the country and averaging more than 17,000 tickets per show.
“I’m looking forward to getting out on the road with Wiz,” said A$AP Rocky. “We’ve talked a lot about doing this and I’m excited that it’s finally come together. This is going to be the biggest party of the summer.”
Both Wiz Khalifa and A$AP Rocky have massive live followings. Wiz has played more than 400 shows since the beginning of 2010 with major tours including “Deal or No Deal,” “Campus Consciousness,” “Rolling Papers” as well as last summer’s “UTIOM” tour. His latest album, O.N.I.F.C. debuted at Number Two on the charts and the single “Let It Go,” featuring Akon is currently making its way up the charts. Khalifa has released three albums previously including Show and Prove (2006), Deal or No Deal (2009) and Rolling Papers (2011). Khalifa’s megahit single from Rolling Papers, “Black and Yellow,” has sold over 4 Million copies to date.
A$AP Rocky announced his global arrival in a major way earlier this year when his highly anticipated debut album LONG.LIVE.A$APentered at the Number One spot on Billboard’s Top 200, Hip-Hop Albums, R&B Albums and Digital Albums chart. The album entered the charts Top 10 in 24 countries around the world. Currently a special guest on Rihanna’s “Diamonds World Tour,” Rocky’s take-no-prisoners live set has been galvanizing audiences from coast-to-coast.
