We did it before and we are doing it again!!! New Edition (my homies… HA!) are coming back to the Chicago area. They will be at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, IN on Sunday, July 27th and you can win two tickets!!
New Edition was my first concert, my first celebrity crush (Ronnie!), and I have attended more of their concerts than any other musician. My friend Melinda and I used to flock to the concerts whenever they were in Chicago. As an adult I have seen them here in Chicago on New Year’s Eve several years ago. I attended their concert at Northerly Island. And I saw them in 2012 at the UIC Pavilion. And I saw them last year at Essence Fest in New Orleans. They were fabulous every time!!
Above are Bobby and Ralph performing at Essence Fest 2013 in New Orleans. These guys may be in their mid-40s and up, but they still have the moves, the voices, and all of the talent!
Ronnie Devoe… let that sink in for a moment. LOL! Was he not every teen girl New Edition fans crush?? He can still rap, sway, and jump around like he hasn’t aged a day! He does double duty as a member of New Edition and BBD!
I think I can say that my crush jumped back and forth from Ronnie to Ralph on a regular basis. LOL. Ralph was usually the front man with the smooth, sweet voice. His voice is now a little deeper, but he is still just as good as he used to be!
I’m sure you may have heard by now that Bobby Brown had to drop out of the tour due to health reasons. Boooo!!! But, our prayers are with him at this time. I’m secretly hoping that he is better and decides that he just cannot miss performing in Chicago on the 27th. However, the rest of the group has issued a statement assuring us that even without Bobby they will be giving us their all. I am wishing Bobby a speedy recovery.
As for the concert… I cannot wait!!
Win 2 Tickets to See New Edition at the Horseshoe Casino!
