Earlier this month brought word of “Lost 80s Live”, a tour dedicated to ’80s one-hit wonders like A Flock of Seagulls and Real Life. Now it appears the next nostalgia train is pulling out of the station and headed straight for the ’90s, with a new concert experience that spotlights the decade’s most iconic rap and R&B artists. Yes, it’s time to dust off the flip phones and hammer pants, because here comes “Hammer’s House Party Tour”.
Led by “U Can’t Touch This” hitmaker MC Hammer, the trek will feature a revolving door of other throwback acts such as En Vogue, Sir Mix-a-Lot, Sisqo, Kid ‘n Play, Doug E Fresh, Color Me Badd, and “This is How We Do It” star Montell Jordan. Also on board for the ride on select dates are Rob Base, Coolio, The Funky Bunch, and 2 Live Crew, among others. You can get tickets here.
“Hammer’s House Party Tour” officially runs from April to August and will see Hammer & co. make stops in Las Vegas, Tallahassee, Houston, and various cities in California, including Saratoga, Lincoln, and Irvine. The itinerary also lists dates in Noblesville, Indiana; Clarkston, Michigan; Englewood, Colorado; and Tinley Park, Illinois.
For MC Hammer, the tour marks his first major outing in almost 30 years.
