New Edition performed in Cleveland, Ohio on June 9, 2012 at the Quicken Loans Arena. I bought my ticket back in February and looked at the ticket every morning on my dresser mirror…just counting down the days.
I’m not going to make this a long, dragged out blog, so don’t worry. So to continue, New Edition did an amazing job this past weekend! I was a little disappointed in the ticket sales BUT there was more than enough people there to let New Edition know that Cleveland loves them.
The music was crisp, the vocals were clear! New Edition was fitted as usual and if you were wondering….Yes! Mr. Bobby Brown was in the house!!!! They were in tuned with their unforgettable steps even after 29 years, well with Bobby, give or take a few steps, but we still love him!
The transitions’ of era was fab. Johnny introduces Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike and Ralph, and left the stage so that the original NE could perform the tunes that made everyone fall in love with them….Jealous Girl, Popcorn Love, and of course Candy Girl to name a few. Bobby did make a few jokes about, in his words “getting kicked out of the group”. It was all in fun and I was happy to see they are at a point where they can laugh about it.
Later Johnny joined and Bobby left as Johnny joined the group to sing the songs that he was included in as a member of New Edition. Then later Bobby comes back and they go into the reunion years belting “Hot 2 Nite” among others.
Each member sang songs from their prospective solo careers, while the other members sang back up. The entire show was entertaining from start to finish and New Edition showed why we have loved them for 29 years and counting! I never sat down through the entire concert and it’s a good thing because I got to get a handshake from Johnny Gill as he rushed his way on the floor singing his new song “In The Mood”.
Okay, Okay, I said I wasn’t going to make this long, but I almost feel like you can’t help but go on and on about New Edition! I just want to say if you have the opportunity to see New Edition’s 2012 Tour, please take it, because it will certainly be a night you will not forget.
So to those annoying people who keep saying, “New Edition is back!” let me put the word out….New Edition Never Left! Hat’s off to NE…..Here’s to the next 29 years!!!!!!!
I’m SMarchel and Blog on it! It’s my Opinion!
