Wiz Khalifa Announces Tour With Chevy Woods, Big Sean
Wiz Khalifa is on a hot streak with his debut album ‘Rolling Papers,’ and he’s keeping the ball rolling. The Pittsburgh spitter has announced his Rolling Papers World Tour 2011, with opening acts Chevy Woods and Big Sean.
The green-friendly tour puts the trio on the road through the summer, with plans to keep the pit stops in the United States. The trek begins on June 12 at Maryland Heights, Montana’s Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, continuing on to hit venues including Cincinnati’s PNC Pavilion at Riverbend, Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, New Orleans’ Lakefront Arena, Boston’s Bank of America Pavilion and more. The summer venture ends at Canandaigua, NY’s Marvin Sands PAC on August 3.
Fans can purchase tickets for the tour beginning on April 20 — aka 4/20, a date widely recognized where people convene to celebrate in the shared activity of smoking marijuana — though advance tickets go on sale for members of Wiz’s fan site. The tour’s announcement comes on the heels of the rapper’s debut album, which debuted last week at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with 191,777 copies sold. This week, the album slips to No. 5 with an additional 59,000 units moved.
