The Boys On Tour
There would never have been a New Kids on the Block or an N*Sync without New Edition. Billed as the new Jackson 5, the group of childhood friends from Boston burst onto the music scene in 1983 with the decidedly Jackson 5-esque 'Candy Girl', which rocketed straight to the top spot of the R&B singles chart. Only teenagers at the time of its release, the next thirty years would see the group clock up dozens of other hits singles ('Mr. Telephone', 'If it isn't Love'), as well as various solo projects, break-ups and reunions.
They signalled their transition from boys to men in 2002 when they signed to Sean P. Diddy Comb's Bad Boy Records. Now, they're back on the road, playing the hits. Special guest star on this tour is multi-Grammy Award winner Kenny 'Babyface' Edmonds tops the bill, who has produced music and written songs for some of today's top musicians, including Madonna, Eric Clapton, Mary J. Blige and Michael Jackson, as well as being awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Catch this your when it hits Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, AZ, Closed July 27, 2016
