UPDATED 12/3, 9:15 a.m. ET: Omarion and Bow Wow have revealed the dates for the Millennium Tour. Presale begins this Thursday with more cities to be announced. The tour launches on Feb. 15 in Louisville, Kentucky, and hits cities like New York, Philadelphia, Nashville, Houston, and more before ending on May 10 in Los Angeles.

Omarion first teased the Millennium Tour 2020 via an Instagram post last week. Because he didn't announce the lineup, fans assumed it would be the same artist as the previous Millennium Tour which featured a B2K reunion. Yet on Tuesday, Omarion revealed that he would be co-headlining the tour with Bow Wow and that his other band members would not be coming along for the ride.
Omarion and Bow Wow are building off the theme created by their 2007 joint album, Face Off. The project was a gold-selling, no. 1 album. They will be joined on tour by Pretty Ricky, Lloyd, Sammie, The Ying Yang Twins, and Soulja Boy.
The noticeable absence of B2K adds fuel to the drama surrounding the group. Omarion and B2K group member, Lil Fizz, have been making headlines due to Fizz dating Omarion's ex and the mother of his children, Apryl Jones. Fizz and Jones have openly flaunted their relationship. He claimed that he and Omarion were not friends while Jones went on record saying that Fizz gave her the "best pipe of her life." This led fans to wonder how Omarion felt about the situation. During an interview with VladTV, the singer kept his poker face. But he did ask them to make their relationship's "narrative" about their love and not their connection to him.
"I don’t feel no ways, I don’t feel any way about it," Omarion said. "She’s still the mother of my children. When something affects her, it affects my kids, and that affects me. But what she does is, you know, live your life! I think people should do whatever makes them happy. I think they should change the narrative."
Since they haven't separated themselves from Omarion, fans believe that the singer decided to do it for them with the tour's lineup. It should also be noted that this potentially petty move was excellently executed. Omarion informed the public (and possibly Fizz) that B2K won't be seeing any tour checks on Fizz's 34th birthday.
