Nelly Switches Up Tour Dates

Outing now begins October 3 in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Nelly is rolling out on his Nellyville Tour a little later than first expected.

The outing, which has the Cash Money Millionaires as confirmed openers, now will kick off on October 3 at the Verizon Wireless Virginia Beach Amphitheatre in Virginia Beach, Virginia, instead of on September 26 in Worcester, Massachusetts, as was previously announced (see "Nelly Planning Back-To-School Spectacular For U.S. Tour"). Despite the switch up in his tour dates, Nelly is still hitting many of the venues that were originally scheduled.

Nelly's spokesperson said the changes were made to squash the rapper's scheduling conflicts. Another factor that makes shoring up Nelly's itinerary a taxing effort is that he does not fly; he travels by tour bus.

More tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks, according to the slang king's rep, as will the final lineup of the Nellyville Tour.

Nelly has been talking to more of his peers about joining him on the road. Eve recently said that she is up for a spot (see "Eve Eyes Nelly Tour, Talks Drama With Dr. Dre"), and Mario has also been negotiating to come aboard the tour.
