There’s no stopping ’90s nostalgia. What was initially a handful of throwback concerts has turned into a nationwide I Love the ’90s Tour featuring Salt-N-Pepa and Vanilla Ice as headliners. The official tour kicks off in Greenville, South Carolina, on April 15, with the last scheduled show set for Salem, Virginia, on October 20.

The hip-hop group and rapper are among many ’90s staples that will participate in the tour. While the artists on stage will vary from show to show, the tour website promises “upwards of eight performers and … a lineup that you won’t find anywhere else.” The all-star group includes Coolio, Young MC, Kid ‘n Play, All-4-One, Color Me Badd, Tone Loc, Kool Moe Dee, Rob Base, and Biz Markie.

In total, the tour is scheduled to hit 29 cities, and based on the response to shows this spring, it will likely be met with enthusiasm. Spring dates have sold out, as USA Today reports, and fans have apparently been all about reliving the ’90s. “It feels like you’re taking people back to a time in their lives that they really enjoyed,” Cherly “Salt” James told the publication. “It’s just one big ’90s party.”

James, along with Sandra Denton (Pepa) and Deidra Roper (DJ Spinderella) plan to perform “all the classics” in a show she says is “very interactive.” The Grammy-winning group is known for hits like Push It, Shoop, Whata Man, and more, so concertgoers can look forward to hearing them in person. According to James, it’s “a Salt-N-Pepa experience” that’s fun for both the trio and the crowd.

For any serious ’90s fanatic, the concert sounds like the perfect bucket list item. It’s not every day that you get to listen to the soundtrack to your youth in one awesome concert. Tickets are available at ILovethe90sTour.com.

Person listening to spatial audio using Apple AirPods Max headphones.

At WWDC 2021 (Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference), Apple officially added support for spatial audio with Dolby Atmos Music for Apple Music. It quickly became a popular format among consumers, too: Apple estimates that by February 2022, playback of spatial audio tracks had quadrupled from just a few months prior as people experimented with the format. But what exactly is spatial audio? How is it different from (or the same as) Dolby Atmos? And what kind of audio equipment do you need to listen to it?

There's a lot of ground to cover, and some of it is a bit technical, but we're going to break it all down in easy-to-understand terms. You'll be a spatial audio expert in minutes, and you'll know exactly how to access this growing trend in movie and music streaming.

How to convert your vinyl to a digital format
Rebirth of cool: Is vinyl ready for a second wind, or just a fad?

It doesn't matter one bit if your vinyl collection consists of just a single milk crate or if it fills several Ikea Kallax shelves and is slowly taking over your home — we can all agree that there's just something about vinyl.

Maybe it's the warm, uncompressed sound spinning off a solid turntable, or the feel of holding a physical piece of art in your hands while the record spins — it's a special experience that has regained much of its glory in a world dominated by digital streaming. The problem is, records are fragile, and crates full of them don't fit in your back pocket.
