Story in Many Pics: MixTape Tour takes over Haskins Center

The calendar may have read 2019, but for thousands of loud fans in the Don Haskins Center Tuesday night, they were partying like it was 1989.

The MixTape Tour rolled into the Sun City, with New Kids on the Block, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, Salt n Pepa and Naughty By Nature all taking turns in the time tunnel spotlight, much to the delight of their fans.

Our very own Andres ‘Ace’ Acosta was there and we bring you his view of the concert in this “Story in Many Pics.”

New Kids On The Block’s MixTape Tour to Stop in El Paso Next Summer

On Monday it was announced that the New Kids On The Block – along with several other 80’s and 90’s music superstars would be performing in El Paso as part of their  53-city tour across North America next summer.

The tour will make a stop at the Don Haskins Center on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, October 12th online.

American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday, October 9th at 10am local time through Thursday, October 11th at 10pm local time.

NKOTB took to the Today Show plaza to reveal The MixTape Tour with very special guests Salt-N-Pepa, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson and Naughty by Nature. The five iconic pop and hip-hop acts will hit the road together for the first time ever next summer.

To celebrate the event, NKOTB surprised fans by dropping an epic, throwback track, “80s Baby” featuring their new touring partners, Salt-N-Pepa, Naughty By Nature, Debbie Gibson and Tiffany. The track takes listeners on a nostalgic yet refreshingly modern and fun ride through 80s song references and fresh verses- just a small glimpse into the party that will be The MixTape Tour.

With over 100 million combined records sold worldwide, NKOTB, Salt-N-Pepa, Naughty by Nature, Tiffany and Debbie Gibson will fill arenas with hit after hit when they take to the stage next summer.

Always upping the ante, NKOTB have packaged the ultimate lineup for a once in a lifetime live show experience.

The group will return to the stage after 2018’s touring hiatus to perform fan favorite number one hits like “Hangin’ Tough,” “I’ll Be Loving You (Forever),” and “Step By Step”. When tour mates Salt-N-Pepa, Debbie Gibson, Tiffany and Naughty by Nature hit the stage, they bring with them top chart hits and legendary catalogues to keep fans out of their seats all night..

NKOTB made the announcement on the heels of their SOLD OUT Apollo Theater show celebrating the 30th anniversary of their hit packed, breakout album Hangin’ Tough.

The special one night only engagement sold out within minutes of onsale and saw NKOTB gracing Harlem’s famed Apollo stage for the first time since they debuted “Please Don’t Go Girl” at the Apollo’s notoriously tough amateur night. The career defining album, Hangin’ Tough produced hits like “Please Don’t Go Girl,” “You Got It (The Right Stuff)”, “I’ll Be Loving You (Forever)”, and “Cover Girl.”

The crowd erupted when the band confirmed on stage that Hangin’ Tough will get a special anniversary re-issue in early 2019 with new, never been released music.

Produced by Live Nation, The MixTape Tour will embark on its three month journey beginning May 2nd in Cincinnati, OH and make stops in Nashville, Dallas, Los Angeles, Atlanta and more, before wrapping July 14th in Hollywood, FL.

Story in Many Pics: Naughty By Nature @ Freedom Crossing

The Post was thick with hip-hop Saturday night as icons Naughty By Nature brought the beats to Fort Bliss.

Among the throngs who attended and put their hands in the air, like they did not care, was our very own Andres Acosta, who brings your his view of the concert in this ‘Story in Many Pics’

Let Freedom Bling, With Naughty By Nature, Freedom Crossing Concert Series, July 22, 2017
Let Freedom Bling, With Naughty By Nature, Freedom Crossing Concert Series, July 22, 2017

Naughty By Nature set to Perform Saturday at Freedom Crossing

For the first time ever, the Let Freedom Sing Concert Series is bringing 90s hip-hop jams to Freedom Crossing at Fort Bliss with Grammy Award winning, Platinum-album selling, New Jersey super-group Naughty By Nature and special guests Killah Priest (Wu-Tang) and DJ One Man Jazz.

This free concert sponsored by Western Tech, Casa Ford and GEICO will be held on Saturday, July 22 at 7 p.m. and is open to the public.

Naughty By Nature has a twenty-year track record of creating the hits and party anthems that have become the soundtrack to our lives. Their music has smashed through mainstream barriers all while remaining true to the sound, message and grit of the hood. And now, these three kings of the Hip-Hop anthem have formally claimed their titles with the 20th Anniversary album, Anthem Inc. Treach, Vin Rock and DJ Kay Gee continue to create undeniably classic, hand-raising, life-affirming, Hip-Hop music.

Naughty By Nature’s self-titled debut album was released in 1991 and quickly assaulted the music charts with the instant classic #1 hit “O.P.P.” The group quickly became crossover stars, while maintaining their ghetto sensibility. To date, their success and longevity as a Hip-Hop group has been unparalleled.

The trio went on to produce their follow-up albums that have become part of America’s Hip-Hop legacy: 19 Naughty III (1993), Poverty’s Paradise (1995) and Nature’s Fury (1999). Inevitably, a break-up in 1999 would lead to the group members each following different, yet equally successful, personal endeavors.

In 2008, after years of steady touring and itching to get back in the studio, both Treach and Vin agreed, that in order for the next album to have that authentic sound and feel of Naughty By Nature, they must reunite with DJ Kay Gee. At this same time, VH1 bestowed their coveted “Hip-Hop Honor” to the group as innovators of our culture. Joining the ranks of Big Daddy Kane, Rakim and Eazy E., the group received their “Hip-Hop Honors” in October of 2008.

The group continues to tour globally, ripping stages from Australia to Canada and New Jersey to South Africa. Killah Priest, opening for Naughty By Nature, is a tangential associate of the Wu-Tang Clan. The Brooklyn native made his first recorded appearances on records by such Wu side projects and solo albums as the Gravediggaz, Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Return to the 36 Chambers, and, most importantly, Genius/GZA’s seminal Liquid Swords.

His contributions became legendary and paved the way for the release of his acclaimed debut album, Heavy Mental, in the spring of 1998. DJ One Man Jazz, who’s also opening at the concert series, is a local DJ, formerly from Los Angeles where he opened up for countless hip-hop legends at the world renowned Do-Over music series.

Over the last seven years, Freedom Crossing has hosted the free summer concert series, Let Freedom Sing that has included nationally acclaimed artists such as Lee Brice, Eli Young Band, Rodney Atkins, Jerrod Niemann, Blues Traveler, Gym Class Heroes, Karmin, John Michael Montgomery, Tyler Farr, Craig Morgan and, most recently, Brett Young.
