NEW rap sensation Wiz Khalifa will be hitting Bristol this year for his headline tour.
Atlantic Records’ latest act, whose real name is Cameron Thomaz, has had a busy year so far after his huge smash hit Black and Yellow – inspired by his love for the American football team the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The tune was so popular it was double platinum certified in the US, charted top five in the UK singles chart and the video has had more than 78 million views on his official YouTube channel to date.
Taken from his Atlantic Records debut album, Rolling Papers, which was released in March, the groundbreaking anthem has set the tone for the LP.
Wiz graced the UK for a handful of one-off shows this May and due to overwhelming demand his initial London date was soon upgraded, and his shows are tipped to be sell outs.
Wiz will be appearing at O2 academy Bristol on November 5 and tickets, priced £20, are available at www.o2academybristol.co.uk
