Mac Miller & Wiz Khalifa brought their “Under The Influence of Music” tour to their hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Saturday night by performing at the First Niagara Pavilion. Before I get into writing my review for the show I would like to explain some background on the Pittsburgh hip-hop scene over the past handful of years. Pittsburgh has never been a hip-hop hot bed, but over the past few years we have seen our fair share of big tours pass through. I personally have been in attendance for Lil Wayne twice and Drake once at the First Niagara Pavilion and none of them performed in front of the crowd we saw for Mac & Wiz. Kanye West & Jay-z brought their ‘Watch The Throne’ tour to Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center last fall and performed in front of a less than sold out crowd. For The Under The Influence tour Mac & Wiz brought in over 20,000 spectators (may have been closer to 25,000). None of the others have been able to touch these numbers which probably makes this show the most sold hip-hop event ever in our city. That is why I say in the title that the duo “make history in their hometown”.
Now onto the review. Upon arriving at the venue around 2 pm, my friends and I were greeted by hundreds of cars stretched up and down the road engaging in good pre concert tailgates since the parking lots did not open until 3 pm. When the lots did open the party was really on as thousands of fans busted out alcohol and got ‘under the influence’ while waiting for the show to start.

“It wasn’t a decision that was very hard for me given their track record of developing talented learned musicians into great artists. I’ve known the folks over there [at Rostrum] for some time and I think it is a good fit for both parties!”
Rostrum Records President Benjy Grinberg added the following:
“I’m very excited that Boaz is joining the Rostrum family. I have been a big fan of Bo and his music for many years, and I’m looking forward to working with him in a more substantial way.”

When Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller hit the road together this summer, the good times will roll no doubt. But who will have more fun: the fans or the headliners? During their nine-city Under the Influence of Music run, the Pittsburgh boys are planning plenty of backstage fun. “Your little crew better get your little selves together, ’cause T.G.O.D. is coming,” Wiz told Mac, playfully threatening his labelmate when they both appeared on “RapFix Live” on April 25. “Let’s go, Most Dope versus Taylor Gang. It’s on,” Mac responded all smiles, pumping up his rap crew.

Wiz Khalifa is excited to embark on a summer tour with Mac Miller — or is he? MTV News caught up with the Rolling Papers MC on the set of Maroon 5′s “Payphone” video shoot in Los Angeles, where he talked about the upcoming Under the Influence of Music Tour.
“Mac’s my man,” Wiz said, before he jokingly backtracked. “Actually, I really don’t like him like that. That’s why I usually try to stay away from him. There’s no way I could avoid him for too much longer, so they made me go on tour with him.”
