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.

‘I Love the 90’s Tour’ Set for Southwest University Park October 28th

Southwest University Park is set to host the biggest Dance Party in El Paso this fall and everyone is invited.

The I LOVE THE 90’s TOUR is set to perform at Southwest University Park on Saturday, October 28th and will feature some of the most iconic names in Rap, Hip Hop and R&B giving audiences an opportunity to rediscover the music that influenced and defined a generation and contributed to making the ‘90s a decade to remember.

After a very successful 2016 with over 110 shows across North America, the I LOVE THE 90’s TOUR will continue its momentum in 2017 with 40+ new stops in the United States and it’s first-ever stop in El Paso, Texas this fall.  The top-selling tour, which originally announced only 29 dates in 2016, quickly became the year’s most sought-after show, eventually racking up 110+ stops and selling out a number of arenas across the country.

This year promises fans the same unbelievable live experience, with a rotating lineup of the 90’s most popular acts.

Hailed by Entertainment Weekly as an, “arena-sized dance party,” and described by The Arizona Republic as, “a hit-filled trip down memory lane,” the I LOVE THE 90’s concert will be a nostalgia-filled night that includes a star studded line-up of six 90’s artists all performing on one ticket.

The El Paso I LOVE THE 90’s show will be headlined by Grammy award winning rap group Salt-N-Pepa who released several successful albums in the late 1980s and ’90s, including A Salt with a Deadly Pepa and Blacks’ Magic, which provided such hits as “Let’s Talk About Sex,” “Shoop” and “Whatta Man”.

The all-female group broke down a number of doors for women in hip-hop and they were also one of the first rap artists to cross over into the pop mainstream, laying the groundwork for the music’s widespread acceptance in the early ’90s.

While songs like “Push It” and “Shake Your Thang” put the group on the top of the billboard charts during the late ’80s, Salt-N-Pepa defied expectations and became one of the few hip-hop artists to develop a long-term career.

Also performing in the El Paso show are lead singer and songwriter of Sugar Ray, Mark McGrath who can lay claim to a stunning string of top 10 hits, multiple multi-platinum albums (including the RIAA 3x platinum certified “14:59”), and countless sold out tours; C&C Music Factory best known for their five hit singles: “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now),” “Here We Go (Let’s Rock & Roll)“, “Things That Make You Go Hmmmm…“, “Just a Touch of Love“, and “Keep It Comin’”

All-male R&B Group All-4-One whose love ballots “I Swear” and “I Can Love You Like That” were the top songs at most high schools dances in the mid ‘90s; the German Eurodance Hip Hop group Snap!, who produced the 90’s dance anthems “The Power”, and “Rhythm Is A Dancer”; and last but not least, American Rapper, DJ and Producer, Biz Markie known for his beat-boxing and witty rhymes in such songs as “Just A Friend”.

Tickets will go on sale June 30th and are available at the Southwest University Park Box Office, online or by calling the ticket box office at 915.533.BASE.

A limited number of I Love the 90’s Tour VIP packages are available, including exclusive Salt-N-Pepa VIP meet & greet packages, for details please visit www.southwestuniversitypark.com.
