It’s gonna feel like the ’90s this summer – and we’re not talking about the weather. Three R&B groups that ruled the 1990s – Jodeci, SWV and Dru Hill – are combining their forces and fanbases and are getting ready to make some music moves on the Summer Block Party Tour. After previously announcing the tour earlier this month, the dates and locations have finally been revealed, and it’s gonna be quite a summer road trip.
Produced by Live Nation Urban, the Summer Block Party Tour kicks off in Jodeci’s hometown Charlotte on July 28th. The very next stop will be in Dru Hill’s hometown Baltimore on July 29th before the tour stops in SWV’s old NYC stomping grounds on August 4th.
The tour buses will then roll on to a number of major U.S. cities. On the list are Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, Birmingham, Nashville, Houston, Phoenix, San Diego and Los Angeles, to name a few. The last stop of the tour will be in Concord, California on September 8th. Hitting a total of 21 cities, tour organizers have indicated that more dates will be announced.
