An excerpt of info from TCS officials:
Recording artist, actor, philanthropist, restaurateur…just a few of the befitting titles for Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, who first gained worldwide acclaim more than 10 years ago with his debut album, Back for the First Time (2000). Ever since, his unrivaled lyrical prowess, dynamic performances and timeless hits including "Stand Up," "Get Back," "Number One Spot," "Money Maker," and "My Chick Bad," have solidified him as one of music's best entertainers and led to the sale of more than 20 million albums domestically. In addition to immense commercial success, Ludacris consistent output of stellar music has garnered the admiration of his peers, as well as numerous awards and honors including three Grammys.In 2010, MSNBC.com named Ludacris, along with other eminent figures such as Oprah Winfrey and Warren Buffet, as one of today's most effective influencers on American culture. With his feet firmly planted in so many diverse areas, we can certainly see why.
This could be one of the most heavily attended shows in TCS history, so get there early for a good seat (or standing spot).
