Lupe Fiasco Reveals Tour Dates
With Lasers sitting atop the Billboard Top 200 albums chart, Lupe Fiasco announced plans today to head out on tour.
Beginning on March 27 in Los Angeles, the Chicago spitter will embark on a 16-date, 15-city tour that will include stops in New York, New Orleans and Baltimore, as well as at multiple college campuses.
Fiasco's third LP, Lasers, debuted at the No. 1 spot on the charts earlier this week, moving more than 204,000 units. Following the announcement of the stellar sales, Lupe took to his Twitter account to express his excitement on the occasion. He wrote the following:
