Nelly to Perform His Classic Hits with St. Louis Symphony Next Year
Nelly is set to perform a special concert in his hometown of St. Louis. The diamond-selling artist plans to perform all of his classic hits with the St. Louis Symphony.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Nelly will present “A Night of Symphonic Hip Hop” on Feb. 3 at Powell Symphony Hall. The 41-year-old rapper will rock the mic with a full orchestra conducted by David Robertson. The concert will feature orchestral flips of Nelly’s chart-topping hits including “Country Grammar,” “Hot in Herre,” “Ride Wit Me” and “Just a Dream.”
Tickets are available now with prices range from $45-$150 at stlsymphony.org or by calling 314-534-1700. There are also VIP Packages, which include front-row seating and a meet-and-greet with Nelly.
Now, this isn't the first time Nelly has performed with an orchestra. In July, the "Dilemma" rapper had tail feathers shaking with a symphonic concert with the Pittsburgh Symphony in Pittsburgh, Pa. You can watch Nelly deliver an orchestral performance of "Country Grammar" here.
