Missy Elliott Going ‘Out Of This World’ On First Headlining Tour

Trek will hit North American arenas this summer with support from Busta Rhymes, Ciara and Timbaland

Hip-hop icon Missy Elliott has accomplished an awful lot in her 30-plus-year career, but she’s never embarked on her own headlining tour until now. The 51-year-old artist today (April 8) announced the Out of This World — The Missy Elliot Experience trek, which will hit North American arenas this summer with support from the stacked lineup of Busta Rhymes, Ciara and Timbaland.

“This is an incredible time in my life as I am experiencing so many milestone ‘firsts.’ Being the first female hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and now going out on my first headline tour,” Elliott said. “Fans have been asking me to tour forever but I wanted to wait until I felt the time was right because I knew if I was ever going to do it, I had to do it big, and I had to do it with family!”

Out of This World begins July 4 in Vancouver and will run through Aug. 22 in Rosemont, Il. Elliott reunited with longtime collaborator Dave Meyers for an announcement video, which teases her “intergalactic vision” for the tour. Click here for information on ticket on-sales.

Despite her massive popularity, Elliott hasn’t played more than 13 shows in a single year since 2004. In 2023, her only live appearances came at the aforementioned Rock Hall induction ceremony, the Grammys, two festivals and a one-off headlining concert in Highland, Ca.
