It’s very possible the last time you last saw Ludacris was this spring when he appeared in the tenth (!) installment of the “Fast and Furious” franchise.
Now, you can see him live.
The popular rapper is touring all over North America this summer and fall.
And if you’re a Luda fan in New York, you’re in luck.
On Saturday, Aug. 5, Ludacris is set to headline alongside LL Cool J, Queen Latifah, De La Soul, Salt-N-Pepa, Big Daddy Kane and more at the annual Rock The Bells in Forest Hills, Queens.
For those outside of the five boroughs, you can catch the “Welcome To Atlanta” icon perform in locales like Cincinnati, Des Moines, Salt Lake City, Tucson and Las Vegas.
Clearly, he gets around.
As of now, tickets are available for all 26 upcoming gigs on his tour calendar.
Some are quite affordable too.
Well, at the time of publication, we found tickets going for $37 before fees on Vivid Seats.
We happen to think that’s a steal given all the timeless hits — “Move B—-,” “Rollout (My Business),” “Stand Up,” “Act A Fool” and “Area Codes” to name just a few — that Ludacris works into the set list.
Want to catch the “Fast and The Furious” star and hip-hop icon own the stage live this year?
