We'd like to ride wit him.
Publish date:

Nelly performed at Target Field in 2017, but in 2019 he'll be heading south when he performs at the Olmsted County Fair. 

According to Jade Presents, the hip-hop star will be performing at the fairgrounds in Rochester on Friday, July 25 next year.

It's part of a three nights of music at the fairgrounds July 23-25, and tickets for all three nights cost just $49.50. 

There's also a $100 ticket option that will get you into Nelly's show along with a post-show photo opportunity and meet and greet with him. There are only 100 of the meet and greet tickets available. 

You can click her to buy tickets or get them by calling 1-866-300-8300.

Nelly last performed in Minnesota while touring with Florida Georgia Line and the Backstreet Boys in 2017.

Nelly turns 44 years old in November, and it was about two decades ago now when he was at the top of the hip-hop world thanks to his album "Country Grammar," which spent seven weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 when it was released in 2000. 

It's a known fact that pretty much everyone on the planet can still recite the words to "Ride Wit Me," while his other hits include the likes of "Hot in Herre" and "Dilemma" feat. Kelly Rowland.
