St Louis's finest, responsible for hits like Hot in Herre, Ride Wit Me and Dilemma, plays across the country in November and December
Nelly has announced a UK tour for November and December 2017, with presale tickets available Wed 14 Jun at 9am.
The rapper from St Louis, Missouri, kicks off the run of shows at Oxford's O2 Academy on Tue 14 Nov, and is in the UK right through until Tue 5 Dec, when the tour finishes at Southend-on-Sea's Cliffs Pavilion.
Part of hometown group St Lunatics in the 1990s, Nelly's big break came at the turn of the millennium. His 2000 album Country Grammar, with its smash hit single 'Ride Wit Me', was one of the biggest-selling records of the decade, shifting over 10 million copies.
Follow-up album Nellyville brought Billboard number one singles in 'Hot In Herre' and 'Dilemma', a duet with Destiny's Child's Kelly Rowland. All this, and more, made Nelly the third biggest-selling act of the 2000s in the USA.
He's a big draw in the UK too, and will bring his brash, confident stage show and hits from seven studio albums to a town near you in 2017.
