I Love the '90s Tour to kick off with Salt-N-Pepa and Vanilla Ice as headliners

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.
