After enjoying yet another commercial and critical success with his eleventh studio album, Life is Good, Nas will be heading to the London next March to perform at The O2 Arena. The Don will be appearing for a one-off show on March 19th, supported by none other than Meek Mill, MMG’s prodigy and one of hip hop’s rising stars.
The announcement comes off the back of Nas’ three sold-out shows in the UK this October, and will follow a 21-date tour of the US to close out this year. It will be the first time either of these artists have performed at the O2.
The duo will be promoting material both from Life Is Good and Meek Mill’s forthcoming studio debut, Dreams & Nightmares, which drops on October 30th. They appeared together just yesterday on Meek Mill’s “Maybach Curtains,” and if that track (which you can listen to below) is anything to go by, it will be quite the night.
Tickets will go on sale via Ticketmaster tomorrow (October 19) at 9AM and will cost £38.40 (standing). In a kind gesture towards his recently departed friend, one pound from every ticket sold will go towards the charity founded for Nas’ “Cherry Wine” collaborator, Amy Winehouse.
With one of the game’s most experienced performers appearing alongside one of it’s best young technical talents, you’d be mad to miss out.
