I Love the 90’s Tour features:


Rapper, actor and reality star Vanilla Ice is one of the 90’s most recognisable names, with his global crossover hit Ice Ice Baby crossing rap over to the mainstream. His platinum record To the Extreme is one of the highest selling rap albums of all time while his extracurricular activities have including ICPs Juggalo Championship Wrestling, appearing in reality series Surreal Life, cameos in a dozen films and competing in this year’s US Dancing with the Stars.


The world’s most iconic female rap group Salt n Pepa have been delighting audiences for over three decades with hits including Lets Talk About Sex, Push It, Shoop, Whattaman and many more. They became the first female rap artists to win a Grammy Award and their 1993 album Very Necessary remains the best-selling album from a female rap act.


A global phenomenon, Gangstas Paradise was the highest selling single of 1995 hitting the #1 spot across the world and cementing Coolio as one of the decade’s most important rap stars. With subsequent dancefloor hits including Fantastic Voyage and 1,2,3,4 (Sumpin New) and a lengthy list of TV and film credits, Coolio remains a major force.


One of the first purveyors of the 90’s new jack swing movement, Color Me Badd were one of the original boy bands, with their smash hit I Wanna Sex You Up delighting teenagers and concerning parents right across 1991. Their Follow up hits I Adore Mi Amore and All 4 Love made the band one of the biggest vocal groups in the world as they topped the US charts and became fixtures in the Australian top 10.


With two million-selling singles Wild Thing and Funky Cold Medina, Tone Loc was one of the early 90’s biggest stars with his Grammy and American Music Award nominated album Loc-ed After Dark becoming one of the most important rap albums of the 90’s. 


Young MC broke through in the 90’s with his seminal hit ‘Bust a Move’, which won him a Grammy for Best Rap Performance. He continues to release music having released eight albums.
