Wiz Khalifa will head out with Fall Out Boy on a 40-plus city “Boys of Zummer” headlining tour, stopping at Jones Beach on June 24. The special guests are rapper/singer Hoodie Allen.
Fall Out Boy were punk-pop darlings in the ’00s with tracks like “Sugar, We’re Goin Down” and “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race” before making a comeback in 2013 with “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up).” Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz and company are releasing their sixth studio album, “American Beauty/American Psycho,” next week.
This will be first major tour with a rock group for Pittsburgh rapper Khalifa, who has been headlining his own Under the Influence of Music tour in recent years. Khalifa, who travels with his own band of musicians, is nominated for two Grammy awards and his most recent album, “Blacc Hollywood,” topped the charts. The Grammy-nominated hip-hop star, best known for the 2010 hit “Black and Yellow,” is currently promoting his latest album “Blacc Hollywood.”
And rapper Hoodie Allen built a following through his mixtapes before dropping his major label debut “People Keep Talking” last fall, featuring a collaboration with Ed Sheeran.
