Newcomers Asher Roth and Kid Cudi are setting off on their first headlining tour this summer. The two Universal Motown artists will hit 19 cities around the U.S. as part of "the Great Hangover Tour" with support from B.O.B., an Atlanta-based rapper. Fellow Universal Motown group Pac Div will be on the bill for 11 of the dates, and the other eight will be treated to additional support from 88 Keys.
Roth, who released his "Asleep In The Bread Aisle" debut on April 20, has sold 121,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen Soundscan, and debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart the week of release. "I just want people to expect the unexpected, which is a little cliché to say, but at the same time I don't want people to kind of pigeon-hole me," he told Billboard last month.
As previously reported, Kid Cudi's debut, "The Man On The Moon With The Guardians," is slated for a late August release. His single, "Day N' Nite," peaked at No. 3 on the Hot 100 and has sold 540,000 digital downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
