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 Woods and 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.”
