Wiz Khalifa will join forces with ASAP Rocky this summer for the second edition of his “Under the Influence of Music” tour. The summer trek, which also includes B.o.B, Trinidad James, Joey Bada$$ & Pro Era, Berner, and appearances by Chevy Woods and Smoke DZA, will stop in Massachusetts for a night at the Comcast Center in Mansfield on Wednesday, August 7. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $27.50 to $77, will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. A limited number of “early bird” lawn tickets will be sold for $22.50.

“Last year’s Under the Influence Tour was such a blast, that we decided to double the number of dates and take the tour to even more of our fans across the country,” said Khalifa, who led the tour alongside fellow Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller last summer, in a press release.

“I’m looking forward to getting out on the road with Wiz,” added ASAP Rocky. “We’ve talked a lot about doing this and I’m excited that it’s finally come together. This is going to be the biggest party of the summer.”

Khalifa will be touring in support of his latest album, O.N.I.F.C. The rapper’s fourth studio effort and follow-up to 2011’s Rolling Papers debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 after its release in December. Guests on the album include 2 Chainz, Akon, Berner, Cam’ron, Juicy J, Pharrell, and The Weeknd. It features singles “Work Hard, Play Hard” and “Remember You”. Khalifa is reportedly already hard at work on a new album with hopes of releasing it later this year.

ASAP Rocky is on the road to promote his debut album Long. Live. ASAP, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 after its release in January. The album features guest appearances from Santigold, Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz, Drake, Big K.R.I.T., Yelawolf, Florence Welch and more. It features singles “Goldie”, “Fuckin’ Problems” and “Wild for the Night”.

Following the show in Massachusetts, the tour will travel south to Connecticut for a show at Hartford’s Comcast Theatre on Thursday, August 8. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $26 to $75.50, are now on sale through Live Nation.
