Lupe Fiasco Announces Generation Lasers Tour

    Lupe Fiasco’s about to hit the road again to promote his (disappointing) third album, Lasers, with a jaunt that takes him across the U.S. For the most part, he’s playing college and theater shows, though there are a few smaller gigs in there such as the House of Blues show in Boston. As someone who has seen him in both types of venues, I can safely say that dude kills it no matter the setting. Hell, he might even excell in a larger setting as his live band really knows how to complement his approach and make sure every part of the venue can hear them. Even if  Lasers didn’t wow us, I have to imagine that its synth-heavy cuts sound a whole hell of a lot better while booming in a theater.
