New Edition is going to Vegas!
The R&B group recently announced that they’re beginning a Las Vegas residency in February 2024. The group, which includes Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ralph Tresvant, and Johnny Gill, will continue to perform after touring for two consecutive years. The residency will run from February 28, 2024, through March 9, 2024. New Edition will perform six dates at the Encore Theater at the Wynn Las Vegas.
“Fulfilling a career-long dream to solidify ourselves with a residency performance in the entertainment capital of the world, we are beyond excited to embark on this fantastical journey at the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas,” the group said in a press release statement per Billboard. “On behalf of all of us, including Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Ralph & Johnny, it is our extreme purpose to give our fans a show that they cannot witness anywhere else in the world.”
Senior VP of AEG Presents Las Vegas, Bobby Reynolds, said they are “honored” to host New Edition’s first-ever Las Vegas residency. He said, “Encore Theater’s roster is comprised of legendary talents, and it only makes sense to have an iconic music group like New Edition join its ranks. We are thrilled to present a series of sure-to-be unforgettable performances to fans in 2024.”
A legacy group, New Edition hopes to capitalize off the success of recent Black performers like Usher and Anita Baker, who have turned their Vegas residencies into huge moments for the culture. Tickets for the performances are currently on sale now.
