Ludacris: With the ability to spit lightning fast, witty lyrics and produce head bumping beats that have become popular with audiences around the world, Ludacris has earned a spot amongst rap royalty. After first breaking on to the scene with tracks like "Southern Hospitality" and "Move Bitch", Ludacris is now playing tour dates to a huge crowd of screaming fans, as well as continuing a popular acting career. While he doesn't have any tour dates in 2011, Ludacris is hard at work on his next album, Ludaversal, which is due out in early 2012.

When Christopher Brian Bridges was nine years old, he moved to Atlanta and began writing raps, eventually becoming a DJ on Hot 97.5. He released his debut album, Inconegro, in 1998, with many of the tracks appearing on his major label debut, Back for the First Time, in 2000. The album has gone triple platinum, and led to the first tour dates of Ludacris' career. The next year, Ludaris released Word of Mouf, which received great reviews and featured the singles "Area Codes" and "Move Bitch", which have become two of his most popular hits. The rapper received his first Grammy for the Usher song "Yeah!", which also become a breakout hit for Lil Jon. Ludacris' 2004 album, Red Light District, quickly went double platinum and rose to the top of the Billboard 200, supported by the ironic single, "Number One Spot."

While the artist's 2010 album, Battle of the Sexes, was supposed to be a collaboration with Shawnna, she soon dropped out after recording began and was fortuitously replaced by female artists like Nicki Minaj, Lil' Kim, and Monica. The album has only built for Ludacris' next traditional studio album, Ludaversal, which, while the cause for no tour dates in 2011, is bound to please his loyal friends.

Kelly Rowland: As 1/3 of Destiny's Child, Kelly Rowland and her girls sold tens of millions of records and toured the world several times over, winning awards and setting records along the way. As a solo star, Kelly Rowland is a Grammy Award winner and chart-topper in her own right and has scheduled tour dates throughout 2011. The R&B diva has transcended into the Euro-pop and Dance scene as of late and is prepping her third solo album, Here I Am, which is scheduled in conjunction with an international tour.

Kelly Rowland broke out big alongside superstar Beyonce Knowles and Michelle Williams and together became the most successful female R&B trio of all time. While on hiatus from Destiny's Child in 2002, Rowland sang the hook on the hit single, "Dilemma", a duet with Nelly on his Nellyville disc. The #1 single was the biggest hit of the summer and earned the duo a Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration and solidified Rowland as an independent artist. In 2003, Rowland released her debut album, Simply Deep, which earned the newly minted solo star a Gold plaque. Kelly Rowland tour dates were scheduled periodically during Destiny's Child's three year-long hiatus before the group returned to the studio in 2004. After releasing their fourth album together, Kelly Rowland tour dates were scheduled with Beyonce and Michelle on the Destiny Fulfilled…And Lovin' It Tour. Following the tour, they parted ways to focus on other projects.

Rowland turned to her burgeoning solo career and prepped material for her sophomore album. Rowland released Ms. Kelly in 2007 and received moderate success both in Europe and the US. After the release, Rowland secured a new management team and evolved towards a more dance and Euro-pop sound. In 2009, Rowland returned to the top of the charts with the international smash, "When Love Takes Over", which appeared on David Guetta's One Love album. The single was nominated for a Grammy Award and topped the charts on several European surveys. David Guetta returned the favor to Rowland and produced the lead single, "Commander", off of her upcoming album. Kelly Rowland tour dates were scheduled periodically throughout the year to create buzz for the single.

After a delayed release, Rowland's hotly anticipated third album will finally drop in July, 2011. The album, Here I Am, features the hit #1 R&B single, "Motivation", as well as "Commander". To promote the album, Kelly Rowland tour dates have been scheduled internationally at intimate venues. Rowland honed her skills on international tours with Destiny's Child and has proven that she has the chops to be a solo superstar. With #1 singles in several genres, Rowland has emerged as a diverse singer who can collaborate with acts ranging from David Guetta to Lil' Wayne.
