The Millennium Tour is hitting the road again, but with a slightly different lineup.
The Millennium Tour was one of the biggest tours this year, grossing $6.7 million while bringing nostalgia to fans across the country. Headliners B2K brought the top acts from the early 2000s like Pretty Ricky, Bobby Valentino, Ying Yang Twins, Lloyd, Mario, and Chingy. The tour ended on the heels of some drama between B2K members Omarion and Lil Fizz — it was revealed that Fizz is dating O’s baby mom, Apryl Jones — and fans weren’t sure they would ever see the beloved boy band on stage together again. The answer to that is probably not, because Omarion just announced he is hitting the road without his bandmates, and added two other major throwback stars to the tour instead.
The 2020 Millennium tour will be headlined by Omarion as a solo act paired with none other than Bow Wow. He and Bow Wow toured together in the past when they were both at the peak of their careers, and they plan to revamp the “Face Off” tour from their 2007 collab project. Another addition to the bill is Soulja Boy, who was vocal about being excluded from this year’s tour, so it looks like they were able to make it up to him. Pretty Ricky, Ying Yang Twins, and Lloyd will be returning. The only other act added list is Sammie who broke onto the scene in 2000 with his hit “I Like It.”

Omarion had hinted at bringing back the tour last week, just after his interview dropped with Vlad TV speaking on him and Lil Fizz’s relationship. The “Icebox” singer said he was unbothered by his former bandmate hooking up with the mother of his two children, and that he would just prefer to be left out of their narrative. Fizz, on the other hand, has said he and Omarion were never friends and only business partners. Now Omarion is going on about his business and might be finally leaving the B2K legacy behind for good.
After the tour was announced, the two B2K members who were left out of the drama and the next leg of the tour had some interesting reactions. J Boog jokingly responded to a post by Lil Duval saying he might have to fight Lil Fizz for messing up his money. Meanwhile, Raz B exclusively told The Shade Room that he is “falling back at this time,” and wishes nothing but the best for the fellas on the tour this year.
Tour cities will be announced on Dec. 2. and pre-sale starts on Dec. 5
