After the official release of his controversial, untitled ninth album yesterday, Nas announced he is planning “The Jones Experience” tour. The tour is being described as “intimate” and will feature Talib Kweli, Jay Electronica and DJ Green Lantern. Tour dates and venues are listed below.

In addition to performing for approximately 30 dates, Nas will also be making some high-profile stops. According to the Associated Press, “God’s Son” is scheduled for a July 23 performance on Comedy Central‘s The Colbert Report. The show was originally introduced as a parody of the Fox News show The O’Reilly Factor, but has recently raised its profile among the Hip Hop audience with appearances by John Legend and the Roots. There’s no word if Nas plans to perform “Sly Fox,” his critique of Rupert Murdoch and the Fox media empire. The tradition of “secret shows,” whose headliners and venues always get leaked continues for MySpace. Billboard reports Nas will perform at a secret show hosted by the social networking giant at the Los Angeles Roxy on Sunset July 18.

Although some corporate retailers refused to carry Nas‘ album with its original title of Nigger, Samsung and AT&T have courted the Queensbridge emcee for an additional tour. Nas has reportedly been added to the Samsung AT&T Summer Krush Tour. The tour begins July 31 with dates in Los Angeles, Seattle, Dallas, Atlanta, and New York. Mariah Carey, Nelly, LeAnn Rimes, Gavin Rossdale and Nas are scheduled to perform.
