“We’re excited. It’s a huge show,” said Jude Strode, Toyota Center spokeswoman. “Considering most city arenas are 10,000-plus seats and we’re going to be under 6,000, there won’t be a bad seat in the house.”
The concert is the latest in a string of major bookings for the Toyota Center, from KISS, Dierks Bentley and Snoop Dogg last year, to Lil Wayne on Thursday.
Several iconic 90s artists are stopping at the Toyota Center on April 23 as part of the I Love the 90s Tour. The lineup includes Salt N Pepa,Vanilla Ice, Rob Base, All-4-One, Tone Loc and Young MC.
And Christian music stars MercyMe will perform at the Toyota Center on May 10.
Florida Georgia Line includes Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley. The duo has sold more than 3.5 million albums worldwide and racked up numerous honors. The guys recently were nominated for five ACM Awards, including Entertainer of the Year.
Nelly is one of the best-selling rappers of all time, with 21 million albums sold in the U.S. alone. He’s won three Grammy Awards, including Best Male Rap Solo Performance for Hot in Herre.
Nelly collaborated with Florida Georgia Line on a remix of the duo’s smash Cruise. And the artists, along with Lane — known for hits For Her and Fix— embarked on a summer ballpark tour a few years ago.
“It’s good to be back out on tour with some of our best friends, Nelly and Chris Lane,” Kelley said in a statement. “If it’s any indication of our ballpark tour a couple years ago, this should be the party of the year. We are excited to see and connect with all of our fans, and make as many memories as we can.”
