"When you say 'the '90s,' IT'S JUST NOSTALGIA. The '90s was an incredible era for music, hip-hop, pop culture — just everything. PEOPLE WANT TO GO BACK."
Rolling Stone declares…
"IT FEELS LIKE YOU'RE TAKING PEOPLE BACK TO A TIME IN THEIR LIVES THAT THEY REALLY ENJOYED"
Entertainment Weekly hails…
"AN ARENA-SIZED DANCE PARTY"
TORONTO, April 3, 2018 /CNW/ - Kicking off in 2016 and quickly racking up hundreds of shows across North America, UK, Australia and New Zealand, the hugely successful I LOVE THE 90's TOUR will continue its reign in 2018 with new stops across the United States and Canada including Burl's Creek Event Grounds on Saturday, August 18, 2018. In just two years, the tour has become one of the most sought after live events, selling out arenas worldwide with its rotating lineup of the 90's' most iconic acts. This year promises fans the same unbelievable live experience with a lineup at Burl's Creek that includes crowd favourites Vanilla Ice, Salt-N-Pepa, Montell Jordan, Rob Base, Young MC, and Black Sheep.
"Burl's Creek Event Grounds is a stunning first-class venue; we're looking forward to programming more great summer content for the residents of Simcoe County and Muskoka in their own backyard. The artists on the 'I Love the 90's Tour' featuring Salt-N-Pepa and Vanilla Ice are party icons from a time when massive radio hits and music videos were king, before iTunes, smart phones, and Facebook – you can't download nostalgia!" says Lisa Zechmeister, Director of Booking and Development at Republic Live. Republic Live operates Burl's Creek Event Grounds.
The I Love the 90's Tour went international in 2017, inviting fans from Australia, New Zealand and UK to join the nostalgia-filled party. With live sets from Vanilla Ice, Salt-N-Pepa, Color Me Badd, Coolio, Tone Loc and Young MC, the international tour started 2018 with the biggest party on dance floors across the world. November's AUS/NZ tour announcement of the party set off a frenzy when thousands upon thousands of fans took to the web to buy tickets, shutting down ticketing sites and selling more than 20,000 tickets in just 48 hours.
The I Love the 90's Tour is represented by Universal Attractions Agency (UAA). Universal Attractions Agency's Jeff Allen and Jeff Epstein, co-creators of the I Love the 90's Tour, are more than excited at the breakout success of the tour and are confident that audiences are ready for their next dose of 90's nostalgia. As both say, "Our object was to capture the imagination of a generation and the I Love the 90's Tour is a phenomenon that has done just that."
