Booking Agent Says Wale Has Touring Power

Rapper Wale may be the #1 rapper in the country with the release of his chart topping album Ambition, but the rapper is also proving to be a major draw at venues around the country.

The rapper has sold out venues in Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston and his hometown of Washington, DC.

“Wale has a passionate fan base and has proven to be one of the strongest young touring acts in Hip-Hop,” Jesse Kirshbaum of the Nue Agency told AllHipHop.com in a statement.

“We have sold out New York his last eight consecutive headlining, hard-ticket plays, each time excelling in venue size and capacity,” Kirshbaum continued. “The Los Angeles show at House of Blues sold out more than two weeks in advance.”

Wale has 18 dates remaining on the “Ambition Tour,” with stops slated in San Francisco, Portland, Miami and other major markets, including a sold out date Houston, Texas tonight (November 10).

Wale’s Ambition is #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums Chart and #1 on the Hip-Hop/Rap Charts.
