Here's hoping that when the "I Love the 90s Tour" stops by Spokane Arena this fall, people celebrate the occasion appropriately via their attire.
Bike shorts, Zubaz, Guess jeans, some flattop haircuts — how great would it be to see an entire audience dressed like they just stepped off a Saved By The Bell set?
One of several package tours bringing a slew of artists to towns across the country for a night of nostalgia, the "I Love the 90s Tour" stops in Spokane on Oct. 2. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 am at the arena and all TicketsWest outlets for the show at the Star Theater inside Spokane Arena, and will run you $47.50, $67.50 or $87.50.
That isn't cheap, but you do get a whole lotta artists for your money. The acts listed for the Spokane stop of the tour include Vanilla Ice, Salt-n-Pepa with DJ Spinderella, Color Me Badd, Coolio, Tone Loc and Young MC. Combine all the hits from those acts and you have the makings of a serious time warp to dance to "Let's Talk About Sex," "I Wanna Sex You Up," "Fantastic Voyage," "Wild Thing," "Bust A Move" and, yes, "Ice, Ice Baby."
Now start practicing your dance moves for when Color Me Badd is on stage:
