Just Announced! New Edition: The Culture Tour with Charlie Wilson + Jodeci
New Edition Announces The Culture Tour beginning February 2022
with Charlie Wilson and Special Guest Jodeci
Bossier City (Dec. 17, 2021) – Veteran R&B group New Edition headlines an iconic lineup, including the legendary Charlie Wilson, along with special guest, Jodeci, the bad boys of R&B. The Culture Tour kicks off a 30-city tour February 2022, in Columbus, Ga., coming the Bossier City at the Brookshire Grocery Arena on March 26th!
In 1983, New Edition released their debut single Candy Girl off their self-titled album, hitting No.1 on the Billboard Hot Black Single Charts, jumping ahead of Michael Jackson’s Beat It. Since then, New Edition has released more than six studio albums, received multiple Soul Train and American Music Awards, and a Grammy Award nomination. In 2017, BET Network released their three-part Biopic: The New Edition Story, airing over three consecutive nights. The mini-series attracted 29 million total viewers. That same year, the network honored them with the BET Lifetime Achievement Award, recognizing the group as one of the innovators of R&B. They have remained one of the most influential R&B groups of the last 30 years and counting, catapulting the solo careers of Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill, and Ralph Tresvant, and Bell Biv DeVoe.
Viewers experienced a sense of nostalgia during the American Music Awards in November 2021, when New Edition performed alongside 80’s boy band, New Kids on the Block. Often credited as the creators of the modern-day boy bands, New Edition will attract fans old and new. Starring all six members, Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ralph Tresvant, and Johnny Gill, this is the group’s first tour in more than five years.
Tickets are also available for purchase at the b1BANK Box Office at Brookshire Grocery Arena starting December 10th.
Open Wednesdays and Friday 10am-2pm.
