After a fun-filled set at Liquid Pool Lounge at Aria, Nelly continued his Vegas tour when he performed an exclusive show at Haze Nightclub at Aria on Saturday night.
Nelly and his entourage including fellow St. Lunatic member Ali walked the Haze red carpet. Clad in a black T-shirt, denim jeans and a black leather ball cap, Nelly posed for pics solo and with his crew before heading inside to a VIP table behind the DJ booth.
The at-capacity nightclub teemed with dedicated Nelly fans who cheered and screamed for him when he hit the stage. He kicked off his hour-long show with “E.I” and took fans on musical journey through his 15-year career with hits including “Where the Party At,” “Air Force Ones,” “Batter Up,” “Stepped On My Js” “Grillz” and the track that launched his career, “Country Grammar.” He then shouted out the west coast and went into a freestyle mash-up over Kendrick Lamar’s “B**** Don’t Kill My Vibe,” YG’s “My Hitta” and Drake’s “The Motto.”
Nelly then surprised guests with a special impromptu performance with Mike Will Made it, who was also in the building. Mike Will joined him on stage as he schooled fans on the producer’s catalog of hits and performed his most popular tracks including “23” featuring Miley Cyrus, “Long as My B Loves Me” featuring Lil Wayne, Ace Hood’s “Bugatti” and Rihanna’s “Pour It Up.”
After the blow out performance with Mike Will, Nelly continued his show with the fan favorite “Hot in Here,” prompting all the ladies to sing along and dance throughout. Then, he stopped the set to bring a very special birthday girl from the audience on to the Haze stage. He wished the fan a Happy Birthday, serenaded her with his hit song “Dilemma” and took a selfie with her before concluding his set. He wrapped up the performance with a tribute to the late Nate Dogg and “Just A Dream.” After his explosive show, Nelly returned to his VIP table to celebrate with his friends until 4 a.m.
