The Nashville Symphony is quickly rescheduling concerts called off because of COVID-19. And first up is a one-night event at Ascend Amphitheater with legendary rapper Nas.
Nas performed with the National Symphony Orchestra in 2018 and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in 2019. 2020 was to be Nashville, but the pandemic forced a cancellation. A spokesperson says the Nashville Symphony has never performed a concert with a rap artist.
Nas is known for his tongue-twisting poetry and fiery political statements. His 1994 debut album “Illmatic” was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Recording Registry.
The show has been rescheduled for 7:30 p.m. Sunday, September 12.
The Nashville Symphony has announced new dates for seven shows sidelined by COVID and added two more shows in the fall.
