Missy Elliott Announces Long-Awaited Tour with Busta Rhymes, Ciara & Timbaland


April 9, 2024

Calling all the Supa Dupa Fly fans!

Missy’s career has spanned over three decades, with hits that have dominated the charts and left an undeniable mark on music history. But for all her success, there’s one thing she hadn’t done: a solo tour. Now, Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott is finally hitting the road! As reported by Variety, this iconic rapper is embarking on her first-ever headlining tour.

Joining her on this history-making tour is a dream team of collaborators and fellow musical powerhouses: Busta Rhymes, Ciara, and Timbaland. As Missy’s longtime manager Mona Scott-Young tells Variety, this tour is all about celebrating “family.”


“For Missy it was very important that when she embarked on this journey, she did it with what she’s calling her family,” Scott-Young explains. “Busta and Missy have been a dynamic duo for so long, and of course, Timbaland, who I call her partner in rhyme; those two have a long history.” Fans can expect a high-energy show filled with Missy’s chart-topping hits, as well as collaborations with her tour mates.

Missy’s decision to tour now may come as a surprise to some. After all, she’s been a force in the music industry for over three decades. But as Scott-Young points out, Missy has always done things on her own terms. “Having been with Missy for so long, what I came to realize very early on is that things happen exactly as they’re supposed to, and when, and that’s usually according to Missy time,” she says.


This dedication to artistic control and a desire to create the perfect experience for her fans is what makes this tour so special. Missy’s fans have been waiting for this moment for years, and Missy, according to Scott-Young, “wanted to wait until the time was right because she knew if she was ever going to do it, I had to do it big, and I had to do it with family!”

With a powerhouse lineup and the promise of an unforgettable show, this tour is a must-see for any Missy Elliott fan. Tickets go on sale this week, and with Scott-Young hinting that this may be a one-time event, don’t miss your chance to be a part of history!
