Tickets still available for New Kids on the Block, TLC and Nelly at the Sprint Center on Tuesday
Anyone who was dramatically slamming doors and escaping (or reveling in) teenage angst with a Discman in the ’90s will appreciate the triple bill taking over the Sprint Center tomorrow night, featuring New Kids on the Block, TLC and Nelly.
If you were the girl who carefully taped the Bop magazine poster of Joey McIntyre to your bedroom wall, New Kids on the Block may appeal to you most. TLC is a two-piece since the 2002 death of rapper Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes (her parts are played over the speakers), but the opportunity to hear the live version of cuts from the band’s seminal CrazySexyCool (now 21 years old) is worth the ticket cost alone. (“No Scrubs” was perhaps the most important feminist song of the decade.) And though NKOTB fans might not have the same appreciation for Nelly’s Country Grammar, it will be hard for anyone to repress the body swaying brought on by “Hot in Herre.”
NKOTB, TLC and Nelly are at the Sprint Center on Tuesday, May 19. Tickets are still available. Buy them here.
