Central Iowa, prepare for a hip-hop dog walking — in a good way, that is — as Wells Fargo Arena announced today that red-hot rapper Cardi B will be coming to Des Moines on Friday, May 3. Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb 1 at Hy-VeeTix.com.
Cardi B has earned three No. 1 singles, including “Bodak Yellow” and “I Like It,” and “Girls Like You,” a collaboration with Maroon 5. Her 2018 debut studio album, “Invasion of Privacy,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts, and Time magazine named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world.
The rapper made headlines earlier this month when she and conservative commentator Tomi Lahren engaged in a Twitter spat over the recent government shutdown in which Cardi B fired back, “Leave me alone I will dog walk you.”
The announcement adds another A-lister to the Wells Fargo Arena 2019 lineup that includes Blake Shelton (March 14), Weezer/Pixies (March 28), Dave Matthews Band (May 14), Kenny Chesney (May 16), New Kids on the Block (June 9), Shawn Mendes (June 22), Ozzy Osbourne (June 30), KISS (Sept. 3), Thomas Rhett (Sept. 6) and Carrie Underwood (Oct. 26).
