Knox Civic hosts 90s Tour

Following early sold out shows and mounting demand from fans, “I LOVE THE ‘90s TOUR” has added more tour dates, including a performance in Knoxville. The once-in- a-lifetime lineup comes together for a nostalgia-driven blast from the past and now comes to the Knoxville Civic Coliseum on Thursday, April 6, 2017, at 7:30 p.m.


The inaugural edition of “I Love The ‘90s Tour” invites Knoxville fans to reminisce about the trend-setting decade with some of the most iconic, indelible names in rap, hip hop and R&B, featuring Salt N Pepa, All 4 One, Coolio, Tone LOC, Color Me Badd, Rob Base and Young MC.

The Kansas City Star describes this 90s tour: “It was a satellite radio station come to life. It was the ultimate Throwback Thursday. It was a dance party filled with joyous Gen-Xers doing the ‘Funky Cold Medina’; in a ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’; and showing they could still ‘Push It, Push it real good.’ The crowd included many groups of girlfriends, some dressed up in era-appropriate overalls, neon shoes, gold chains and caps turned backward. They danced and screamed when they heard songs they recognized, and they heard many songs they recognized. -Kansas City Star
