Lupe Fiasco at SOBs

On Wednesday May 14th, S.O.B.'s presents Grammy-winning hip-hop star, Lupe Fiasco, live in concert. Lupe last performed at S.O.B.'s in 2006, shortly after his debut Food & Liquor was released, and since then, he has followed up with the critically acclaimed Billboard-topping sophmore effort, The Cool, and sold-out various New York venues like The Fillmore NY and Hammerstein Ballroom. He is also on the bill for Kanye West's "Glow In The Dark Tour", which hits MSG for a sold-out show on May 13th. On May 14th, Lupe returns to S.O.B.'s to give fans an intimate concert experience unique to the legendary venue.

Lupe's selection by Rolling Stone as part of its "Top 10 Artists to Watch in 2006" has turned out to be almost prophetic and inspired clairvoyance. Since first coming onto the music scene in 2006 with his show-stopping verse on Kanye West's hit single, "Touch The Sky", Lupe has climbed from success to superstardom. Lupe received the 2008 Grammy award for "Daydreamin' (ft Jill Scott)" for Best Urban/Alternative Performance. Armed with material from the new and hugely popular The Cool, and swollen fanbase, Lupe returns to S.O.B's on the 14th of May, for an up-close-and-personal concert that is sure to be one to remember.
"...one of the year's best hip-hop albums" -The New York Times, Jon Pareles' on The Cool.

Ticket Info: $37.50 General Admission; Available on Ticketmaster and at the S.O.B.'s Box Office, 212-243-4940. Doors open at 7pm.
