Following last year’s successful arena tour, New Edition is returning to State Farm Arena next March as part of a new 30-city “Legacy” tour.
The popular 1980s boy band sold out State Farm in February 2022 after an eight-year hiatus from touring together. So New Edition is back for more, with Atlanta R&B star Keith Sweat and the original members of hip-hop group Guy including Teddy Riley and Aaron and Damion Hall joining them for a New Jack Swing reunion.
Tickets for the March 30 concert go on presale Wednesday for American Express members and for the general public on Friday at 10 a.m. Tickets range from $59.50 to $179.50 at Ticketmaster.
“Few recording artists can attest to a superior 40-year career that stands the test of time, but New Edition can,” said promoter Gary Guidry. “When we partnered with (them) for ‘The Culture Tour,’ (in 2022), although I knew it would be stellar, their show exceeded my expectations; the guys were nothing short of miraculous. We are excited about partnering with New Edition to further the legacy of the foundation they have already laid.”
All six original members of New Edition will be part of the tour: Atlanta-based Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ralph Tresvant, and Johnny Gill.
The R&B group Tank will be on most of the dates as well, including the Atlanta concert.
