Rapper Eve has been tapped to headline the opening night of the Best Buy Super Bowl Concert Series in San Diego, Calif. The Jan. 24 show, two nights prior to Super Bowl XXXVII, will take place at Embarcadero Marina Park South, which is also hosting the week-long NFL Experience event. As previously reported, the Goo Goo Dolls will headline the second night of the two concert series; tickets for both shows are on sale via Ticketmaster.

A few days after the Super Bowl, Eve will hit the road with Ja Rule, kicking off a short U.S. tour Jan. 29 in Lowell, Mass. In mid-March, she'll head to Europe for three weeks of dates with Nelly, according to her official Web site.

All of Eve's touring activity comes in support of her Ruff Ryders/Interscope set "Evolution," which debuted in September at No. 1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop tally and No. 6 on The Billboard 200. The album's "Satisfaction" earned the artist a Grammy nomination in the best female rap solo performance category. The title recently peaked at No. 22 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart and No. 27 on the Hot 100.

Once the touring is complete, it's probable that Eve will begin work on her new UPN sitcom. The veteran of such films as "Barbershop" and "XXX," she'll star as a fashion designer in the as-yet-unnamed comedy project that will explore the New York fashion scene. Earlier this month, Eve made a guest appearance as a rookie paramedic on the NBC drama "Third Watch."
