Singer, songwriter, producer and performer Bobby Brown is a certified superstar. Since his solo debut in 1985, Bobby has earned himself a legion of fans internationally, selling millions of records globally in the process. One of the biggest R&B stars during the 80’s and 90’s, Bobby Brown was the artist who popularised the genre ‘new jack swing’ by blending classic soul, urban grooves and hip-hop beats, with the help of producers extraordinaire, Teddy Riley, Babyface and LA Reid. With over 25 years in the business, Bobby began his musical journey back in 1981 when he formed New Edition with old school friends Ricky Bell and Michael Bivins. Within a few years, they would shoot to superstardom with their worldwide smash hit ‘Candy Girl’.
New Edition enjoyed a string of hits and numerous Gold and Platinum selling albums, but Bobby was restless and longed for the solo limelight. In 1986 he released his debut solo album, which spawned a Number 1 R&B hit with “Girlfriend”. But it was the 1988 release “Don’t Be Cruel” that forever altered Bobby’s life by making him one of the biggest selling R&B acts of all time. The album featured four Top 5 singles including “My Prerogative” and “Every Little Step”, and earned him a Grammy, Soul Train, and two American Music Awards. In 1996, Brown released his third album “Bobby” which sold millions of copies worldwide. It featured the massive hits “Humpin’ Around”, “Good Enough”, “Get Away” and “Something In Common”. He went on to feature on New Edition’s comeback album “Home Again”, Ja Rule’s massive 2002 hit “Thug Lovin” and released a forth album and a Greatest Hits. His foray into reality TV was also extremely successful with his series “Being Bobby Brown”, the highest rating show ever on the Bravo network.
One of the biggest breakout acts in hip0hop, Naughty By Nature have spent 20 years securing their status as one of the legendary giants of hip-hop. The Grammy Award Winning trio, have successfully managed to balance success on the pop charts, while holding down their true identity and maintaining their credibility. Their impact on hip-hop is undeniable and they continue to remain one of the most loved groups in the genre. Since the early 90’s, the group have enjoyed two platinum albums, numerous gold and platinum singles and were the catalysts in ushering hip-hop culture into a new age; reaching new and diverse audiences. Their first hit “O.P.P.” won them a Grammy and became one of the most successful crossover songs in hip-hop history, being named one of the top 100 singles of all time by Source Magazine, and being ranked the 20th biggest single of the 90’s by Spin Magazine. The group went on to release numerous more successful albums and singles including worldwide smashes “Hip Hop Hooray”, “Feel Me Flow” and “Mourn You Til I Join You”. Their latest album “Anthem Inc” is out now. Treach and Kay-Gee of Naughty By Nature will bring an incredible live energy to the stage with a can’t-be-imitated “hands in the air” vibe to the show.
