Lupe Fiasco announces tour

    It’s finally here!

    Lupe Fiasco’s Generation LASER tour, will begin this month from September 12 until October 11. The long awaited North American tour promotes his recently released third studio album LASERS, which hit #1 on the Billboard 200 at one point.

    The Generation LASER Tour is scheduled to start out in Boston at the House of Blues and end in Oakland, CA at the Fox Theater. Stops in between include places like Philadelphia, Atlanta, Las Vegas and Los Angeles among the 20 cities that are lined up. Lupe even plans to stop at numerous college campuses like University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Auburn University in Alabama. 

    The recent album accomplished new records for Lupe, introducing him to having a single, ("Out of My Head") in the top ten at urban radio. That song, and platinum-certified single "The Show Goes On," will likely be performed along with other tracks from LASERS and previous albums.

    A few of the performers set as opening acts are Wale, Big Sean, Girl Talk, Tinie Tempah and Sarah Green, creating an eager crowd that is anticipating the start of the tour. Hopefully, all the excitement and praise from critics and listeners alike can carry over from the album to the Generation LASER Tour.
