Is it getting hot in hurrr? Or is just Nelly? Sorry, I had to.

That's right, the Big E has announced some performers for its upcoming 2022 run, and St. Louis' own Nelly is one of the big names heading to Springfield, Massachusetts.

A few months ago we told you guys about the midwest rappers' upcoming May 6 performance in Slater's hometown of Lynn, Massachusetts, but if you don't want to drive quite that far, the western Massachusetts show is a great option.

The Eastern State Exposition will welcome Nelly to The Big E Arena on Friday, September 23 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. on the Big E's website.

Nelly has sold over 21 million albums worldwide, earned three Grammy awards and nin Billboard Music awards, and is famous for such hit singles as Ride Wit Me, Country Grammar, Hot in Herre, and Air Force Ones. 


The beloved Big E returns to Springfield from September 16 to October 2 and will host other artists such as Sublime With Rome and country stars Chase Rice and Jimmie Allen.
