Christina Aguilera has tapped Big Boi to open her November 13 show at St. Pete's Mahaffey Theater.

That’s cooler than being cool.

Big Boi’s cancellation of his May 24 show at The Ritz was a bummer and a bit confusing since dates in Pensacola, Orlando, Jacksonville and Ft. Pierce remained on his itinerary. Well, this is a consolation. Today, Xtina tapped the Atlanta rap icon to open the bulk of the dates on her month-and-half-long comeback tour.

Christina Aguilera's comeback tour is coming to liberate St. Pete's Mahaffey Theater

Xtina's new album, Liberation, is set to be released on June 15 and the album's lead single "Accelerate" also features production from Kanye West plus cameos from Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz. You can snag a seat starting Friday, May 18 at 10 a.m. 

Christina Aguilera w/Big Boi
Tues. Nov. 13.
Mahaffey Theater, 400 1st St S., St. Petersburg.
Ticket pricing TBD.
