TAMPA, FL – “The Millennium Tour 2020” will hit the road this spring with Omarion, Bow Wow, Ying Yang Twins, Lloyd, Sammie, Pretty Ricky and Soulja Boy, and will make a visit to Tampa’s AMALIE Arena on Friday, May 1, 2020 at 8:00 PM.
After The Millennium Tour 2019 had a successful run of sellout performances in arenas across the country, fans validated that R&B reunion tours are in popular demand and left many yearning for more. On the heels of The Millennium Tour’s success, G-Squared Events announced plans to return with The Millennium Tour next year. This time, Omarion will be joined by fellow Face Off collaborator Bow Wow to relive their joint project back in late 2007. The lineup is full of nostalgic fan favorites from the 2000s.
For the last 20 years, Omarion has been a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry. With hit songs such as "Post to Be," the singer recently reflected on his unpredictable journey in the music industry. "2020 is my 20th year entertaining. Blood, sweat and tears. Always giving you the best that I got. Thank you for growing with me," he wrote. In 2004, Omarion embarked on a solo career and released his debut album, “O” in 2005, which debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 and received a Grammy award nomination for Best Contemporary R&B Album at the 48th annual Grammy Awards. His second solo album, “21” (2006), contained the hit single “Ice Box” which reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100. Omarion also has notable acting credits in films such as “You Got Served,” “Fat Albert,” “Somebody Help Me” and “The Proud Family Movie.”
Bow Wow is best known as a record-breaking child rapper known as Lil Bow Wow who captured the hearts of young girls worldwide. Bow Wow released his debut album, “Beware of Dog,” in 2000 with hit singles, “Bounce with Me” featuring Xscape, “Bow Wow (That’s My Name)” featuring Snoop Dogg, “Puppy Love” featuring Jagged Edge and “Ghetto Girls.” Bow Wow also made his first movie appearance in “All About the Benjamins” in 2002 as a cameo. In the same year, Bow Wow made his debut as the lead role in “Like Mike.” He later began to undertake lead roles in movies, such as “Johnson Family Vacation” in 2004 and “Roll Bounce” in 2005. He also played a supporting role in the film “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” in 2006. Bow Wow also appeared in five episodes of the television series “Entourage.”
The Ying Yang Twins debuted in 2000 and rose to mainstream popularity in 2003 while collaborating with Britney Spears on her album “In the Zone” and with Lil Jon on "Get Low." In 2004 and 2005, the Ying Yang Twins became more popular with party singles "Salt Shaker," "Wait (The Whisper Song)," "Shake" and "Badd." In 2008, the duo released “The Official Work” mixtape. In 2009, they followed with their “Ying Yang Forever” mixtape. Three months later, the duo released “Legendary Status: Ying Yang Twins Greatest Hits.” The Ying Yang Twins were a fan favorite during The Millennium Tour 2019.
Lloyd is an R&B singer, songwriter, rapper, dancer and actor. Lloyd embarked on a solo career in 2003. In 2004, Lloyd released his solo debut single "Southside" and the single quickly charted on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and became a Top 40 hit. Lloyd had a television acting role in 2005 on the UPN show “One on One” and in 2019 he debuted his film acting skills as Gregory Williams in TV One's original biopic, “The Bobby Debarge Story.” In March 2019, Lloyd joined an all-star lineup of early-2000s artists for The Millennium Tour 2019, which quickly became one of the year's most popular shows.
Sammie is best known for his hit single "I Like It" from his debut album “From the Bottom to the Top” (2000). After taking a hiatus from the music industry to focus on school, the singer graduated at age 17 in 2005. His second studio album “Sammie” (2006) debuted at #42 on the Billboard 200 chart. The first single "You Should Be My Girl", featuring YoungBloodZ member Sean P, peaked at #26 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, while the second single "Come with Me" peaked at #23 on the same chart. In 2008, Sammie was featured on rapper Soulja Boy's hit single "Kiss Me thru the Phone" which peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2012, he co-wrote the song "Next Breath" for singer Tank's fifth studio album “This Is How I Feel.”
Returning to The Millennium Tour 2020 stage, Pretty Ricky hails from Miami, Florida. The group enjoyed its biggest success in the mid-2000s with their gold-selling albums “Bluestars” and “Late Night Special” as well as the platinum singles "Grind with Me" and "On the Hotline."
