R&B group New Edition have announced that they will perform six shows during their Las Vegas residency early next year.
The group said the performances will take place between February 28 and March 9 at the Encore Theater at the Wynn Las Vegas.
New Edition founding member Ronnie DeVoe said, “We just caught lightning in a bottle.” He added that the band has received several requests from fans through social media. “We’re looking to touch that stage and continue on with the legacy.”
Mchael Bivins, Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill, Ralph Trevant and Ricky Bell are the other members of the group.
“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,” a press release from the group says. “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.”
“We are honored to have Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas serve as the home to New Edition’s first-ever Las Vegas residency,” said Bobby Reynolds, senior vp, AEG Presents Las Vegas. “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.”
New Edition climbed to R&B supremacy after notching four top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 through their “Cool It Now,” “Hit Me Off,” “If It Isn’t Love” and “I’m Still In Love With You” tracks.
