New Edition’s R&B Reunion Experiment

Jan. 23 [18:00 EST] — Reunion albums and their inevitable brethren, reunion tours, are nothing new for power-pop bands, but in the hip-hop/R&B world they’re hardly an everyday occurrence.

However, the six members of New Edition have become the exception to the rule, by re-grouping hitting the road three months after their reunion album debuted at number one.

New Edition are currently on the road with BLACKstreet, and so far the reunion experiment seems to be working. See for yourself at one of the remaining venues on the group’s tour, or check out the band on MTV’s “The Week In Rock” this weekend.
