The rapper will be taking his Nellyville show out for a ride starting October 3 in Virginia Beach, Va. Right now, dates span exactly one month with Nelly making stops in major markets across the States.
Although rumors abound that either or both Eve and Ashanti will be joining Nelly on the trek, neither has been confirmed as support. Instead, opening the show will be The St. Lunatics – Nelly’s usual backing band; longtime Nelly supporters Big Tymers & Lil Wayne; Fabolous; and Amerie.
Nelly has already been out entertaining crowds in theatre-sized venues. For his new tour, Nelly has made the leap to arenas and amphitheatres, thanks to the huge popularity of his sophomore album, Nellyville.
The disc went three-times platinum in as many weeks, with the first single, “Hot In Herre,” spending six weeks at No. 1. The second track, “Dilemma,” which features Kelly Rowland of Destiny’s Child, is racing up the charts.
