Wiz Khalifa will be back in Pittsburgh for a March 2 indoor show at Stage AE on the North Shore.

Also appearing will be Curren$y, an original member of Young Money Entertainment, a label founded by Lil Wayne.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 11 at ticketmaster.com .

Pittsburghers no doubt will be happy to see the rap megastar, after he canceled his scheduled appearance for a Terrible Towel twirl before the Steeler’s Dec. 30 game with the Cincinnati Bengals, citing “personal/family reasons.”

Khalifa, who attended Taylor Allderdice High School before coming to the attention of Rostrum Records president Benjy Grinberg in 2004, played one of the first shows at Stage AE when it opened in 2010. He returned there in 2013 for a date with The Killers.

In recent years, he’s also played KeyBank Pavilion in Burgettstown, with Snoop Dogg’s 2016 “The High Road Tour” and again in 2017 headlining the Thrival Festival.

Khalifa’s most recent effort is “Rolling Papers 2,” his sixth album released on July 13, 2018.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
