Nelly - One New Zealand Show

American hip hop superstar Nelly is hitting our shores this December for an exclusive Auckland show at Logan Campbell Centre on December 11.

A savvy pop­-rapper with crossover appeal, Nelly debuted in 2000 with "Country Grammar (Hot...)," yet he was no one-­hit wonder, consistently returning to the pop charts with smash hits like "Hot in Herre," "Grillz," and "Dilemma." His universality set him apart from all of the prevailing rap styles of his time. He wasn't from the East or West Coast, his rapping style, which was both country and urban at the same time, combined a Southern drawl with Midwestern twang. Plus, Nelly never shied away from a pop-­rap approach, embracing a sing­a­long vocal style that made his hooks catchier than most. As a result, Nelly became a rapper capable of crossing practically all boundaries. His first hit, "Country Grammar (Hot...)," became a nationwide summer anthem in 2000, and many more smash hits followed during the remainder of the decade.

Nelly will be this year’s biggest hip hop show. Don’t miss your chance to see this superstar who will be performing all of his hits in this energy-­packed, must­-see live show!
