Serving as both propellants of new jack swing and fore-bearers of the boy band movement of the late '90s, New Edition's lasting footprint has rippled through popular culture since its beginning in 1978. Coinciding with Foxy 95.5 FM's birthday celebration, the group's reunion tour finds all six members on one stage in St. Louis. Including the presence of the incomparable Bobby Brown, New Edition is sure to cause a frenzy among the grown and sexy as the evening highlights hits from the respective careers of its members. Add the seductive bump and grind of openers SWV and the night is sure to make you "weak at the knees."

Worth It: This may be your only chance to see "Poison," "My Prerogative" and "Candy Girl" in the same setlist.
