I Love The '90s Tour

Salt N Pepa, Vanilla Ice, All 4 One, Tone LOC, Rob Base, Young MC


Moda Center (map) North
Fri., April 21, 7:30 p.m. 2017 All Ages


It goes without saying that the I Love the ’90s Tour lineup probably has both late ’80s/early ’90s hip-hop heads and millennial ironists squealing in their jammy jams. This type of exhibition exploits the unavoidable pockets of nostalgia brewing in the shadows of your grown-up sociopolitical austerity, and it’s possible that this could not come at a better time. While it’s strange for every generation to be re-marketed the decades of their youth in a “those were the days” package tour, the fact remains that in the history of modern hip-hop, pop, and even indie rock, the groups assembling at the Moda Center Friday night are legitimate royalty, with the exception of Vanilla Ice (sorry, guys). Salt N Pepa with Spinderella?! TONE LOC?! I don’t even wanna get into Young MC, Rob Base, or All 4 One right now, or I’m going to start cry-typing all over my MacBook. RYAN J. PRADO
