Nelly to perform in Louisville this summer

Good gracious, that 2000s hip hop star will be performing in Louisville this summer.

St. Louis native Nelly is scheduled to play at Live On The Lawn at Waterfront Park on Aug. 6.

Live On The Lawn is a new venture from the same people behind Trifesta — Bourbon and Beyond, Louder Than Life and Hometown Rising — the back-to-back-to-back festival trio that has roared into popularity in recent years.

Nelly will perform at Danny Wimmer Presents’ new venture, Live On The Lawn at Waterfront Park, on Aug. 6.

Danny Wimmer Presents and Waterfront Park announced the joint concert series this week, debuting May 21-23 with three already-sold-out shows from Billy Strings.

Nelly’s Aug. 6 date is a Friday, and the very next night, Shinedown and special guest Pop Evil will perform.

Nelly’s special guest is still to be announced.
