Nostalgia for the 1990s is alive and well. The I Love the ’90s package tour is returning to stages this summer with headliner Vanilla Ice.
The tour, produced by Universal Attractions Agency, will additionally host a revolving lineup of ’90s hit makers including Rob Base, Kid ‘n Play, Naughty By Nature, Coolio, Young MC, All-4-One, C+C Music Factory feat. Freedom Williams, Tone Loc, Sir Mix-A-lot and Tag Team.
“Ice is back, and so is The I Love the 90’s Tour,” Vanilla Ice said in a release. “We’re gonna be hitting your town LIVE and IN PERSON this summer, so you better get in where you fit in and get back to the ’90s where the party never stopped!”
The tour will kick off on Aug. 12 at Four Winds Field in South Bend, Ind., and run through an additional seven cities including Cincinnati, San Diego and Los Angeles. Current dates are scheduled through Nov. 27, where the tour closes out at Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh. Co-owner of UAA and co-creator of the tour Jeff Allen said he expects more dates will be announced for 2021 and 2022.
“Fans need this. It has been a hell of a time with everything that has been thrown at people in 2020. People need a good old party like they did in high school,” said Jeff Epstein, co-owner of UAA and the other co-creator of the tour, in a release. “As a company we are excited to get back to work and book shows again, but more than anything we are thrilled to see how ready people are to get back out there and see shows like The I Love the 90’s Tour.”
