Yes! Yes! and YES!
I was not prepared for the influx of emotion that came upon me when I heard that NKOTB, 98 Degrees, AND Boyz II Men were coming together for a summer tour. I cannot contain the joy that will come from watching grown ass men imitate younger, more vibrant versions of themselves from yesteryear…oh the choreography, the sweat beaded foreheads, the pointing out into the crowd to that one….special….lady. Can you picture it? Black girls, White girls, Spanish and Asian too will all get their lives (get an urban dictionary…yes, they exist) and lose their panties to R&B songs of the 90’s. This is what we needed – no big over productions, no 3D tricks to cause epilepsy, just simple music with familiar faces.
I had the pleasure of seeing Boys II Men perform twice over the past year or so, and they did not disappoint. I’m doing my best not to post the poor quality video of me singing along karaoke style, feet away from the stage wishing that Mike would limp out from backstage. Fellas, get tickets for your ladies. Ladies, make it a Girls Night Out.
