Nelly performed at an electrifying concert in Iowa State. The excited attendees were singing even before Nelly appeared on stage to perform. Ludacris’ song played in the background as Nelly was called to the stage to sing.
Nelly finally made his way to the stage with City Spud, his half-brother. Nelly wore a T-shirt written Iowa State Fair across it, and City Spud wore brightly colored clothes. Immediately after they stepped onto the stage, the crowd started singing the artist’s famous songs like “Put your Hands Up” and “E.I.”
Nelly Thanked the Audience for Attending
Between songs, nelly thanked the people for attending the event several times throughout the night. He said, “I want to thank each and every one of you that’s coming out tonight,” and “No matter what it was that turned you on to Nelly, I want to thank all of Iowa one more time!”
The event took place on Saturday night. Nelly is known as the artist who sang catchy hip hop songs such as “Just a Dream,” Hot in Here,” “Dilemma,” and “Country Grammar.” He is indeed a legend in this music genre.

About 13,000 people attended the Iowa State Fair Show. Ginuwine, who has had a longer career than Nelly, opened the show for him. Ginuwine sings RnB songs. He warmed up the crowd at the show with his song “Hell Yeah” while holding a red rose flower.
The last song he sang before leaving the stage was “Pony,” He threw some red roses to the spectators while singing the song. Ginuwine has been singing since 1996. He released his first album, “Ginuwine… the Bachelor,” almost 26 years ago. He is also one of the TGT group members, together with Tank and Tyrese Gibson.
