Silento will showcase his “Watch Me (Whip/ Nae Nae)” moves on the 11-city “Let’s Dance” tour in March.
The Atlanta performer who sparked a viral video sensation with his catchy ditty and accompanying dance, headlines the tour that also features iLOVEMemphis, DLOW, We Are Toonz and 99 Percent. The tour will be co-hosted by #TeamNueEra and also feature Double J, winner of the 2015 Ultimate Mad DJ Competition.
The tour will swing through Atlanta at 4 p.m. March 6 with a show at The Tabernacle.
While the target demographic for “Let’s Dance” is teens and young adults, promoters at Scream Nation, the live event franchise that is a joint venture with Live Nation, want the tour to appeal to adults as well.
Jeremy Green, an instructor at Atlanta’s Dance 411 studio, has been enlisted as Creative Director for the stage show, which will spotlight hip-hop music and choreographed dances.
Tickets for the tour, including the Atlanta date, go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 29. Tickets are $38.50-$42.50 and can be purchased at www.livenation.com.
