Missy Elliott, Busta Rhymes, Ciara To Headline Summer Tour

Even a total solar eclipse couldn't outshine the brilliance of Missy Elliott's latest announcement: her first-ever headlining tour, "Out of This World – The Missy Elliott Experience." The tour launches this summer across North America and will feature hip-hop heavyweights Busta Rhymes, Ciara and Timbaland.

“This is an incredible time in my life as I am experiencing so many milestone ‘firsts,’” Elliott said in a statement announcing the tour. “Being the first female hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and now going out on my first headline tour – fans have been asking me to tour forever, but I wanted to wait until I felt the time was right. If I was ever going to do it, I had to do it big, and I had to do it with family! So get ready to be taken out of this world with me, Busta Rhymes, Ciara, and Timbaland!”

The 24-city tour kicks off July 4th at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, with stops in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Brooklyn, and more, before concluding in Rosemont, Illinois, at the Allstate Arena on August 22nd.

News of the tour was shared in a sci-fi-themed video posted hours before Monday's total solar eclipse. The clip features Elliott, Busta Rhymes, and Ciara venturing outside a spaceship after accidentally landing on a strange planet.

The tour announcement follows Elliott's historic 2023 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, making her the first female rapper to receive this honor.

"Missy has always been an iconic groundbreaker," Mona Scott-Young, Elliott's longtime manager, added. "This headlining tour is another testament to her enduring impact and a long-awaited gift to her dedicated fans."
