Wiz Khalifa extends 2011 tour dates

on April 08, 2011, 1:30pm

Despite being one-upped by Britney Spears and debuting at no. 2 on the Billboard charts, Wiz Khalifa’s debut fell-length – Rolling Papers – still sold almost 200,000 copies (Spears moved 276,000 copies of Femme Fatale) and effectively made him your mom’s favorite pothead. And while it would be easy to enjoy the success and take a short break from an already hectic (yet, eco-friendly) touring schedule, the 23-year-old rapper – whose real name is Cameron Jibril Thomaz – has just done the opposite.

Pollstar has revealed that the Pittsburgh, Pa. native is going to celebrate his Bonnaroo appearance on June 12th by heading back out on the road to begin a string of 30 new tour dates the very next day. The new stops have Wiz out of the small arenas (and frat house lawns) that he’ll play this month and into sheds like the Santa Barbara Bowl in California, Lakefront Arena in Louisiana, and the Sunset Cove Amphitheatre in Florida. He plays the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md. on July 24th. Other states on the second round of tour dates include Ohio, Texas, Massachusetts, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, North and South Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire, and New York.

Ticket prices for the summer dates haven’t been announced yet, but admission to a 4/20 show in Orlando is priced in between $32-$42. In the meantime, fans can catch a glimpse of Khalifa in the video for Snoop Dogg’s “This Weed Iz Mine”, which appears on Snoop’s latest LP, Doggumentary. The über-hazy video looks like a complete throwback to the 1990’s and finds the boys rolling through the cosmos in a yellow drop top smoking some kind of sticky, green, herb. Check out the clip below and see a complete list of tour dates below that.

Keep an eye out for tickets on SeatGeek and order Khalifa’s Rolling Papers on Amazon.com.
