What do you do next if you’re Lupe Fiasco? In just the span of a few months, you’ve remixed Radiohead AND climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, so you’re flying pretty high. Well, how about head out on tour in support of the eagerly awaited Lasers album? Sure, Jessica Biel won’t be there, but it should still be a blast.
The North American tour, which features opener B.o.B., kicks off on March 5th in Claremont, CA. In the weeks that follow, the man behind The Cool will bounce around this great country of ours before coming to a close on May 7th in Seattle, WA. (We’re thinking a certain Chicago date will also be added down the road). As mentioned, the tour should/would/may be in support of Fiaco’s new Lasers album, though he still isn’t sure when that will hit stores.
“It’s one of the sadder parts of being on a major record label,” Fiasco said in a recent interview. “At a certain point it’s out of your hands. About a date for Lasers, it’s truly on them. I have no idea what they’re going to do.” Someone should start a petition!
Tour dates below. Plus, enjoy an interview with New Zealand’s News 3 during the kick off of the tour in Perth, AU. Tickets are on sale beginning Friday, February 26th at Ticketmaster.com.
