Grab your Sean John, shutter shades and the iciest bling you can find, because the entire early 2000s are coming to Tampa.
A collection of hip-hop semi-stars are teaming up for the "Turnt Up Tour," a post-millennial package tour designed to appeal to those nostalgic for a simpler, less complicated time in America — you know, the era of Y2K, Bush v. Gore and the aftermath of 9/11. And it stops at the USF Sun Dome on May 17.
Are you ready for this lineup? Coming in hot are the Ying Yang Twins (Get Low, Wait (The Whisper Song)), Chingy (Right Thurr), Petey Pablo (Raise Up), Twista (Slow Jamz) and Bow Wow (Like You, Let Me Hold You). It's like if a radio became sentient in 2003 and has been walking the earth ever since.
While the mind immediately races to think of all the other acts that really should be part of this tour — Mike Jones! J-Kwon! Silkk the Shocker! B2K! — let us focus instead on how to get tickets. They start at $29.75 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.
