It's going to get hot in the Wisconsin State Fair as hip-hop superstar Nelly will hit the fair's Main Stage on Friday, Aug. 12 at 7:30 p.m.

The show will mark the "Hot in Herre," "Ride Wit Me" and "Just a Dream" singer's second Milwaukee show in less than a year, performing at Summerfest just last September

Nelly will be joined by Ginuwine – the R&B hitmaker behind "Differences" and the iconic "Pony" – as the Main Stage show's opening act. 

Tickets for the State Fair Main Stage concert will go on sale beginning Thursday, March 10, at 9 a.m. at the State Fair's website. All seating for the concert is reserved, with tickets costing $48, $50 and $52.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
