Wiz Khalifa Taking Under The Influence Tour To Camden / Scranton

Editor’s note:  Don’t necessarily agree with some of his activities but it’s cool to see somebody from Pittsburgh love their hometown and be proud of it.  

Summer is Wiz Khalifa time. His tune “Shell Shocked” is on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sound track. His new album, Blacc Hollywood, drops in August. And the rapper will take his third Under the Influence of Music summer tour through Scranton on Thursday and to Camden on Friday.

“I always wanted to make Under the Influence something to talk about,” says Khalifa, “not just the day after the show, but the rest of your life.”

He’s a Pittsburgh native. His 2010 hit “Black and Yellow” was a pledge of allegiance to the Steelers. “Eagles, Steelers,” he says. “You know there’s no competition. You already know about that.” But there is a Philly connection: his wife, South Philadelphia-raised Amber Rose. “My Philly girl,” he calls her. He and the model married in 2013 after their son, Sebastian, was born, and they settled in Canonsburg, near Pittsburgh.

Adam Lambert’s Glam Nation Tour To Kick-Off in Wilkes-Barre

I don’t know about you, but Adam Lambert and Wilkes-Barre does not seem like a match made in heaven to me.  Nothing against Wilkes-Barre intended either so don’t get your knickers in a bunch.

Adam’s tour kicks off at the FM Kirby Center for the Performing Arts in Wilkes-Barre on June 4th.  Opening acts include last year’s fourth place Idol runner-up Allison Iraheta and Orianthi whose hit single “According To You” has been burning up the charts.

Tickets are $39.50.  If you don’t feel like heading to Wilkes-Barre, Adam will be performing at Musikfest in Bethlehem in August.
