LUPE FIASCO LAUNCHES GENERATION LASER” TOUR

GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING HIP-HOP ARTIST

SLATED TO PERFORM  NATIONWIDE;

THIRD SINGLE FROM  LASERS OUT OF MY HEAD (FEAT. TREY SONGZ)”

MARKS THE TRAILBLAZER’S FIRST TOP-10 HIT AT URBAN RADIO;

THE SHOW GOES ON” NOW DOUBLE-PLATINUM

1st & 15th/Atlantic recording artist Lupe Fiasco has announced plans for the Generation LASER”  tour,  a full-scale North American trek that will see the Grammy Award-winning artist performing across the country through the fall, wrapping on October 11th at Fox Theater  (see attached tour itinerary). The major tour will feature various opening artists including Big Sean, Girl Talk, Tinie Tempah, Sarah Green and Wale in select markets.

Meanwhile the third single   Out of My Head  (feat. Trey Songz)”  from  Fiasco’s third studio album,   LASERS,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 earlier this year, is consistently blazing up the urban radio charts. The catchy club hit  broke into the top 10 at urban radio, making it the first of Fiasco’s singles to reach that mark. Additionally the companion video for the track has received over 4.6 million views on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3NaVE73lpc&ob=av2e).

LASERS,” which marks the Chicago MC’s highest selling and chart-ranking debut to date, also includes the RIAA double platinum certified hit single, The Show Goes On.” The companion video for the track recently received an  MTV Video Music Awards nomination for Best Hip Hop Video.”

An extraordinarily gifted performer, Lupe heralded the release of LASERS” with a long-sold-out show at  New York City’s Webster Hall on Monday, March 7th. Furthermore, he has been touring the country over the past several months including festival performances at  the  annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival,  the  KahBang Festival inBangor,  ME, the Bass Nector’s Bass Island Festival at  Governors Island,  NY, and the Sweetlife Festival in  Columbia,MD.

Lupe’s third full-length collection, LASERS” has quickly received a bounty of glowing critical acclaim.    Rolling Stone praised Fiasco by placing him in a tradition that runs from Marley to M.I.A.: the soul rebel who refuses to believe righteous struggle has to be a grind,” going on to applaud his athletic, whiplash flow and rich imagination.”   The  Chicago Tribune‘s Greg Kot praised such layered, evocative tracks” as the call-to-activism “˜Words I Never Said,’ the potent daydream “˜All Black Everything,’ the shattering “˜Beautiful Lasers'” for (blending) wrenching introspection and an undercurrent of anger with beautifully down-tempo music, perched somewhere between melancholy and despair.”   Perhaps  Entertainment Weekly said it best in its A-“-graded rave:   Simply put, “˜LASERS’ beams.”
