New Edition with Tony! Toni! Tone!

When: Wed., July 9, 7:30 p.m. 2014

Warning: attending this concert may very well perm your hair and acid-wash your jeans because it’s so powerfully eighties. New Edition is coming to town (with fellow throwbacks Tony! Toni! Toné!) and it’s not some BS New Edition — they have Bobby Brown! And all of Bell Biv DeVoe, which we all remember split off from New Edition and made some solid new jack swing tracks. The gang is back together, 30 years after their self-titled album blew up the charts, and bringing all their hits in tow. A recent review of this tour said they dip into the cuts from their respective solo careers, so that’s an added bonus. The same review also indicated that Bobby Brown disappeared about three-quarters of the way through the show. Classic Bobby Brown right there.
