Rumour has it that Nelly will be singing at the Pokerstars WSOP Party. According to NYC Rounders, semi-washed up hip hop star Nelly will be siging at the official Pokerstars WSOP Party July 9th at the Palms.
From their site:
Hip-Hop Star, Pimp Juice & Apple Bottom Jeans entrepreneur Nelly will be headlining the PokerStars Party at the Palms during the 2009 World Series of Poker.
This has been rumored for a while now, but everyone was waiting for an official announcement. NYC Rounders learned that an announcement isn’t coming, so it’s time to tell the world. Nelly + Vegas + Free Drinks = Happy Dance. (Yes, Nelly hasn’t been big since 2005, but everyone at the WSOP remembers the glory days)
The party will take place on July 9 at Rain Night Club. Doors open at 9pm. You will need a pass to get in, but I don’t know where you get them. They are not on the PokerStars Web site anymore. I am sure all qualifiers will get them at the Palms and a few will circulate through the Rio. If you don’t have a pass, general admission will start at 10 or 11pm. Not sure when.
Nelly may possibly be playing the WSOP event also. Apparently he was spotted playing at the WSOP last year. Now I just need to talk to my Pokerstars rep and see if I can get some tickets.
