The I Love The 90’s tour has been crisscrossing the country for the last couple years with a revolving line-up of 90’s hitmakers. The line up in Corbin had Young MC opening and Salt-N-Pepa closing with A LOT of chart-topping music from 4 other big name artist in between. Be sure and check out my photo gallery at the end of this article!
This was a night of greatest hits that brought everyone in the building back to some point in their lives. When turning on MTV or VH1 meant seeing a video of one or more of these artists. Or maybe tuning into an awards show; MTV Video Awards, The Grammy’s or the American Music Awards chances are more than one of tonight’s performers was nominated and or winning. Platinum-selling records and singles, to say this group in Corbin tonight was Hip Hop and R&B royalty would be an understatement.
From Young MC’s “Bust A Move”, Tone-Loc’s “Wild Thing” and “Funky Cold Medina”, All-4-One’s “I Swear” and “I Can Love You Like That” , Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise” and “Fantastic Voyage”, Rob Base with “It Takes Two” and finishing the night was Salt-N-Pepa with “Let’s Talk About Sex”, “Push It” and “What a Man”. That’s just naming a few of the songs each of these artists brought for the excited Corbin Arena crowd. Tone-Loc and Salt-N-Pepa even brought groups of lucky fans on stage to dance with them.
This line-up of I Love The 90’s stars didn’t disappoint!
On a personal note, I wasn’t going to go to this show. Anyone that is familiar with me knows that I’m a rock/metal guy. This music was my daughter’s music; she went to high school in the 90’s so it can be said that I heard this music for years and grew to like it. So a last minute request for photo credentials was approved and I took that as a sign that I needed to go. For those that might read this and don’t know me or my wife personally or might not follow me on social media, my daughter left us this past December, but I could feel her with me at this show. I could see her smiling and dancing to every one of these songs. Music always has been therapy for me, more than ever though in the last 4 months. Covering this show was exactly what I needed to do.
