After success and then struggle, R&B legends New Edition finally enjoy a victory lap

It was 1997, and New Edition, the most gifted vocal group since the Jackson 5, was imploding.

For Ralph Tresvant, Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins and Johnny Gill, the “Home Again” reunion tour was supposed to be a victory lap. Since making their 1983 debut with their wide-eyed bubblegum jam “ Candy Girl ,” the young singers from Boston’s tough Orchard Park projects had beaten the odds to sell over 20 million records worldwide, highlighted by their self-titled breakthrough (1984), the dramatic “All for Love” (1985) and the landmark Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis-produced “Heart Break” (1988). (Gill, from Washington, D.C., joined the group in 1987.)

After scoring their first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with 1996’s “Home Again” and a string of solo successes, New Edition was ready for its coronation as R&B icons. Instead, the 1997 shows were a full-blown disaster.

Brown, who’d married pop superstar Whitney Houston in 1992 and whose issues with drugs and alcohol and run-ins with the law made him the subject of tabloid headlines and the butt of late-night jokes, had suffered a heart attack just two weeks before the tour kicked off. During the course of the tour, each New Edition member traveled on a separate bus. At one show in Las Cruces, New Mexico, Brown, DeVoe and their entourages got into a fight, onstage. Security teams for the two camps pulled guns on each other.

Toward the end of the tour, Tresvant had had enough. “F— it,” he told his childhood friends. “I ain’t doing no more shows.” The concerts left New Edition in debt. Gill summed up the entire experience to one interviewer: “It’s been hell, absolute hell.”

Nearly 25 years later, New Edition are in a Chicago rehearsal space, and this time around the mood is considerably lighter. The men, now in their 50s, are in high spirits, and a genuine sense of brotherhood abounds. There’s good reason: New Edition’s 30-city “Culture” tour — featuring the Gap Band’s Charlie Wilson and ’90s R&B stars Jodeci, and coming to Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena on Sunday — has been filling large venues with fans spanning generations and races.

The last time all six members performed together on an extended bill was in 2014. “We didn’t know if New Edition performing together was ever going to happen again,” says Tresvant, the group’s smooth-singing lead vocalist. “I believe that motivated people to come out and make sure they got the chance to see all six members out there.”

“The fans who grew up with us are really happy to come out and celebrate,” says Bell, who is also a member of New Edition’s ’90s hip-hop-fueled spinoff trio Bell Biv DeVoe.

Brown, who was kicked out of New Edition in 1985 over his constant showboating and missed performances before emerging as a solo star with his 7-million-selling “Don’t Be Cruel,” is hopeful that the group’s days of infighting are behind them.

“With the ‘Home Again’ tour everybody thought they were the star,” says Brown from his Los Angeles home. “We definitely dealt with each other totally differently back then. We were a lot younger and there wasn’t a lot of [unity]. We left our egos at the door this time.”

Brown seems particularly happy to be reunited with his friends in New Edition. You could say Brown, who’s been drug free for nearly 20 years and sober from alcohol for over a year, is just happy to be alive. Between 2012 and 2020, the singer lost his ex-wife Houston , the couple’s 22-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown , and his 28-year-old son, Bobby Brown Jr., all to drug-related deaths.

“This tour has been therapeutic for me,” says Brown. “We pray a lot. We talk a lot.”

Says Bell, who overcame his own battles with drug addiction, “To see Bobby out there doing his joints ... it’s been beautiful, man.”

The group — all are now married, some even with adult children — credit longtime manager, choreographer and “7th member” Brooke Payne with getting them back into fighting shape for the tour. “Oh, man, Brooke is still kicking us in the ass everyday,” laughs Brown. “Muscle memory is one thing, but being 53 years old and still trying to dance like you’re 20 is really difficult.

“We know that ticket prices are high,” he adds, “which is why it’s been so surprising to us that people are actually taking the time to pay homage to New Edition.”

Joe Hadley, the band’s booking agent at CAA, who helped sign New Edition last year to a worldwide representation deal encompassing touring, film, television, composing and literature, notes the success of the tour has caught the attention of concert promoters who traditionally lean heavily on classic rock acts as arena attractions.

“[Promoters] are starting to understand that there are [middle-age] Black music fans with disposable income,” says Hadley. “You have Black artists who are global superstars, but maybe haven’t toured in a while. There are going to be artists from different eras, like a Missy Elliott, that we will see tour again in the near future. It’s a really exciting space.”

Yet despite all the good will, New Edition has a few scores to settle. “There were times we were taken advantage of,” DeVoe says, about the group’s battles with the music industry. “Now we are making sure our budgets are right. We are paying attention to every penny that’s coming in, damn near to the concession stands. Even if we don’t have a piece of it, we are trying to understand it, because of the things that we’ve been through in our careers.”

Tresvant, Brown, Bell, DeVoe and Bivins were first discovered as kids by local songwriter and producer Maurice Starr, at a 1982 Boston-area talent show. Back then, New Edition dreamed only of following in the footsteps of their musical heroes. “We were coming after the Temptations and the Jackson 5,” recalls Tresvant. “These were the people we looked up to. In our era, the hip-hop era, New Edition was the first on the block.”

After the group returned from their first national tour, they were dropped back off at the projects with each member pocketing $1.87 apiece. Starr and New Edition’s label Streetwise Records claimed touring expenses were to blame. The boys promptly hired a lawyer and got released from their contract.

New Edition’s 1984 self-titled album for MCA Records was an even bigger success, going double platinum. They had a top five pop single, “Cool It Now.” New Edition was now a legit arena draw, selling out venues such as Madison Square Garden.

But once again, the money wasn’t adding up. New Edition soon discovered that they were not signed to MCA, but rather to their management’s production company Jump & Shoot. Each member had to borrow $100,000 from MCA to extricate themselves from yet another duplicitous deal.

“As far as New Edition is concerned, that’s never going to happen again,” insists DeVoe.

When it came time to find a team to organize the new tour, the group went with the African American-owned company the Black Promoters Collective — which has overseen productions for H.E.R., Cardi B and Stevie Wonder — over larger conglomerates such as Live Nation and AEG Presents.

“We are uniquely positioned to work with BIPOC artists,” BPC’s co-partner Shelby Joyner said, “because we are from similar spaces and places as the talent we seek as partners.”

“For Black folks, New Edition has been at the forefront of our lives for a very long time,” says Cori Murray, deputy editor at Essence magazine. The group is scheduled to be one of the headliners at this summer’s Essence Fest at New Orleans’ Caesars Superdome.

New Edition admit they haven’t always received the respect they felt due. During their success in the ’80s, a culture-shifting moment when hip-hop was just beginning to take hold of Middle America and Michael Jackson, Prince and Madonna were jockeying for pop supremacy on MTV, the teen act was often treated as an afterthought by white mainstream entertainment outlets.

“In 1983, there was no one else like us on TV or on the radio that our community could really relate to,” says Bell. “We weren’t really thinking about crossing over.”

Following Brown’s departure in late ’85, the addition of powerhouse vocalist Johnny Gill gave the group a more mature, dynamic range. New Edition’s evolution from teen-zine favorites to respected artists can be heard on “Heart Break,” now regarded as part of the new jack swing canon.

Meanwhile, New Edition became the prototype for such mammoth (white) boy bands as New Kids on the Block (also discovered and marketed by Starr), the Backstreet Boys and ‘N Sync, as well as multiplatinum R&B vocal groups such as Boyz II Men (who got their name from a New Edition song before being signed by budding music mogul Bivins), Dru Hill and Jagged Edge.

“But none of them can compete with New Edition,” Bell says in a rare moment of chest-beating. “We have the best of R&B, the best of hip-hop, the best of pop … all of that combined in one group.”

Watching New Edition perform its catalog of favorites (“ Jealous Girl ,” “Cool It Now,” “ Mr. Telephone Man ,” “Can You Stand the Rain,” “If It Isn’t Love,” “ Hit Me Off ”) and solo material by Brown (“My Prerogative”), Tresvant (“ Sensitivity ”), Bell Biv Devoe (“ Poison ”) and Gill (“ My, My, My ”) can be revelatory, a living reminder of the connection between Black ’50s doo-wop (New Edition used to cover the Penguins’ classic “Earth Angel”) and today’s airtight K-pop a la BTS.

New Edition remains the only vocal group in music history in which every member has scored a platinum or multiplatinum album. So why has it taken this long for them to capitalize on their legacy? While race has certainly played a factor, DeVoe says a big part of the blame was due to the group’s penchant for getting in their own way.

“At times we’ve played theaters [for] 4,000 fans and we had to have a support act just for that,” he admits of the act’s down period. “Some of the [issues] that we went through minimized the magnitude of what New Edition could do.”

In 2017, the group co-produced the BET scripted miniseries “The New Edition Story,” a three-part dramatization of their soap-operatic run that drew huge ratings and warm reviews. (One writer called it “the best black TV biopic” since the 1992 ABC series “The Jacksons: An American Dream.”)

Yet in 2018, the group had to scrap a much-anticipated tour over a business dispute that boiled over into public view. Tresvant and Gill reportedly trademarked the group’s name without the others’ consent. In an Instagram post, Brown cropped Tresvant out of an early ’80s throwback photo of New Edition. Tresvant responded to his ex bandmates in a 50th birthday shoutout to fans: “This year is the start of Me, Myself, and Mines… NOTHING ELSE MATTERS!!!”

Subsequently, Devoe, Brown, Bell and Biv formed RBRM (Ronnie Bobby Ricky Mike) and launched their own tour. Tresvant and Gill hit the road as a duo. “We built the name and Johnny walked into the name,” Bivins snapped on the Breakfast Club radio show.

As with most New Edition fights, the group chalks it up to miscommunication and the matter has since been resolved. “We never really talked about it,” says Tresvant. “That was the problem.”

new edition tour bus

Sometimes New Edition just needs to be reminded of their far-reaching impact. “You don’t ever really feel like you’ve made it until you look at the eyes of the guys that came up under you,” says Tresvant. “For the first time in New Edition’s career, we are finally feeling like we are in that spot.”

In addition to the current tour, New Edition is recording tracks for what they hope will be an upcoming reunion album, and there are plans for a Las Vegas residency later this year.

Meanwhile, in May, A&E will air a two-part documentary, “Biography: Bobby Brown,” that will serve as a lead-in to a 12-episode reality series, “Bobby Brown: Every Little Step.”

And if DeVoe has his way, New Edition will be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2023, just in time for the group’s 40th anniversary. “We are definitely going to hit that home run at some point,” he says. “I’m speaking that one into existence.”

New Edition performs together onstage.

New Edition is getting back into the New Jack Swing of things.

Following a massive 2022 tour, the famed R&B group decided to do it all over again next year and will take their “Legacy Tour” to arenas all over North America from March 9 through April 30.

And no, you don’t have to worry the whole group— Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Ralph and Johnny— will be there.

To sweeten the deal, they’re bringing along fellow icons Keith Sweat, the recently reunited Guy and Tank along for the ride as well.

On the 30-concert trek, New Edition and their impressive roster of opening acts will drop into the NY/NJ area three times— first up, they’ll hit Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall on March 18, then Newark’s Prudential Center on March 19 and finally, Elmont’s UBS Arena on April 20.

So, if you count yourself among the many #NE4Lifers and can’t wait to hear “Candy Girl,” live, here’s everything you need to know about the 2023 “Legacy Tour.”

New Edition 2023 tour schedule

A complete calendar featuring all upcoming tour dates, venues and links to buy tickets can be found below.

New Edition opening acts

The lineup for the “Legacy Tour” is truly stacked. In the off chance you’re not acquainted with the tour’s special guests, we’ve got a quick refresher ready to go for you.

Keith Sweat has five Top 10 Billboard hits and 14 huge albums under his belt, making him a bona fide headliner in his own right. In fact, he’s got a few arena gigs of his own lined up for next year. If you’re looking to fall in love with his music all over again, give “Twisted,” one of the all-time great slow jams, a spin.

Guy , currently made up of Teddy Riley, Aaron Hall and Damion Hall, broke up in 1991 and has reunited multiple times since the initial split. Most recently, the New Jack Swing pioneers played a handful of gigs in 2018-19 where they busted out their classic hits “Let’s Chill” and “Groove Me.”

Tank is a bit newer to the scene, getting his start in 2001. Over the past two decades, he’s steadily released music— including smash singles “Maybe I Deserve,” “Please Don’t Go” and “When We”— and developed a nice acting career as well. You very may well recognize him from his work in “The Real Husbands of Hollywood,” “Grown Folks” and, of course, “The New Edition Story.”

Huge R&B tours in 2023

Our musical forecast for next year: Expect lots of slow dances and party-starting anthems.

That’s because many of the biggest names in R&B have lined up tours in the coming months.

Rather than overwhelm you, here are just five of our favorite can’t miss acts you have to catch when they come to a city near you this winter, spring and summer.

New Edition to launch 2023 tour with Keith Sweat, Guy and Tank as guests

  • Oops! Something went wrong. Please try again later. More content below

“The Legacy Tour” coincides with the 40th anniversary year of New Edition’s debut, “Candy Girl.”

New Edition will embark on a new tour in 2023 and will bring along some important guests. The R&B group announced that its “Legacy Tour” will have support from Keith Sweat , Guy and Tank.

The supergroup sextet of Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown , Ricky Bell, Mike Bivins, Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill is scheduled to perform in 30 venues in only a two-month span next spring. From March 9 to April 30, the group will play Charlotte, North Carolina, Washington D.C., Newark, New Jersey, Chicago, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Las Vegas and other cities.

Sweat, a longtime collaborator of Riley and Gill, is behind R&B classics, including “Make It Last Forever,” “Make You Sweat,” “Twisted” and “Nobody.” Guy — the reunited New Jack Swing pioneers Teddy Riley, Aaron Hall and Damion Hall — are known for hits like “Groove Me,” “I Like,” “Let’s Chill” and “Piece of My Love.”

Tank expressed his excitement about touring with his R&B heroes in a video he tweeted on Wednesday. “After 22 years of hard work and dedication, it is an honor to open for those who paved the way.”

The “Please Don’t Go” singer starred in both “The New Edition Story” and “The Bobby Brown Story” BET miniseries, playing former MCA Records executive Jheryl Busby.

The Legacy Tour kicks off as New Edition celebrates the 40th anniversary of its debut album, 1983’s “Candy Girl.” That album launched the then-quintet into music stardom with hits like the title track, “Popcorn Love” and “Is This the End.”

The group announced its return to the road less than a year after wrapping the “Culture Tour ” earlier this year. It featured Charlie Wilson and special guest, Jodeci.

Tour tickets can be purchased via Ticketmaster . Pre-sales begin at 10 a.m. local time on Dec. 15, while general public tickets go on sell at 10 a.m. local time on Dec. 16.

The Legacy Tour kicks off March 9, 2023, at Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, South Carolina.

Tank’s appearance on tour will support his final album,  R&B Money , which dropped in August and was included on Rated R&B’s Best R&B Albums of 2022 list. 

R&B Money  includes Tank’s radio hits “ Can’t Let It Show ,” “ I Deserve ” and the most recent “ Slow ” featuring J. Valentine. The two performed the bedroom banger at the 2022 Soul Train Awards .

Tank described his final album as “a labor of love to my fans and to the genre of R&B.” He added, “I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for artists like Marvin Gaye, Teddy Pendergrass, Keith Sweat, Al Green, as well as my fans who inspire me every day to make music. I wanted this album to pay homage to my influences and my evolution as an artist, and I think that’s what this final album represents.”

Music | evacuation warning issued for big sur residents impacted by partial road collapse, music | new edition leads star-studded r&b show on easter sunday in oakland, new edition brings legacy tour to oakland arena.

R&B legends New Edition bring their Legacy Tour -- featuring the band's original members -- to several West Coast venues in early April, including Oakland Arena on Easter Sunday.

It’s been 40 years since New Edition released “Candy Girl,” the 1983 debut featuring the chart-topping title cut as well as the popular R&B singles “Is This the End” and “Popcorn Love.”

The Boston band is celebrating that milestone with its 31-city Legacy Tour that touches down on Easter Sunday at Oakland Arena. Other stops on the tour include San Diego’s Pechanga Arena on April 6 and Inglewood’s Kia Forum April 8.

The trek features all five original New Edition members — Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Bobby Brown, Ronnie DeVoe, and Ralph Tresvant — as well as longtime bandmate Johnny Gill. It also includes fellow new jack icons Keith Sweat and Guy (featuring original members Teddy Riley, Aaron Hall and Damion Hall).

Rounding out the bill is soul singer Tank.

Showtime is 7 p.m. and tickets are $59.50-$179.50; ticketmaster.com .

I recently had the chance to catch up on New Edition during a Zoom video interview with Bivins (two i’s, no e’s — more on that later) just as he was hitting the road to play a show.

Q: Hey, Michael — it looks like you are cruising around in the back of a limo.

A: No, no, no. I’m in a SUV, man. Heading to the airport, baby. We pay for our own car service. This is billed, right here.

Q: Where are you heading?

A: We are heading to Atlanta to do the South swing — Atlanta, New Orleans Houston, Dallas — and then we make our way over to you for Easter Sunday.

Q: I know! Easter Sunday with New Edition — is this going to be an annual Oakland tradition?

A: Hey, it’s a blessing, man. If we sell it out, get a good crowd, maybe it does become a tradition to be there on Easter Sunday in Oakland.

Q: It should be a blast.

A: It’s not something I usually do on Easter — perform. I usually go to church.

Q: I’ve been following some of the coverage on the tour and it sure sounds like this Legacy Tour is a pretty big production.

A: Yeah. Well, we’re spending a little money — you know? We’re trying to make it look nice. It’s sonically right, visually right, organically right. It’s hitting all cylinders. To be up there and to watch the people in the audience, it feels amazing.

Q: Talk to me about the process of putting a show like this together — in terms of figuring out how you want it to look, the setlist, etc.?

A: Be open minded. Be ready to pivot, make changes, no matter what hour — 11th hour, 12th hour. That’s the process. Stay open-minded and listen to the ideas and the feedback of those who are not onstage. That’s the process. Get opinions.

Q: Obviously, you have all those landmark hits — ones that fans absolutely expect to hear at New Edition shows. But how do you decide what other material goes into the setlist?

A: We have flexibility. It’s our stuff. We can call whatever play we need to call. We think about things that they (fans) want to hear. We think about things that they haven’t heard in awhile. I think we did great job servicing the audience.

Q: As we celebrate the 40th anniversary of “Candy Girl,” are you still having fun getting onstage with these guys who you have now known for decades and decades?

A: It feels amazing. I can’t even explain the energy and the feeling. It’s just amazing. It feels heartfelt. It feels everything that it needs to be. And that’s probably why it’s moving the way it’s moving — because not only do we feel it, but the fans feel it too.

Q: Obviously, you’ve played some of these songs thousands of times. How do you get yourself up to perform, like, “Candy Girl” for the zillionth time?

A: We’re professionals. We get up because this is what we choose to do — this is all we know how to do. The only thing we get up is when we get up out of bed.

Q: New Edition headlines the Legacy Tour, but there are a number of other good reasons for attending. Talk to me about what fans will get, in terms of the overall bill, when they go to the show.

A: They are going to get hits. And hopefully they will feel that it was a ticket that was worth them purchasing. Really good showmanship, good entertainment. Tank, Guy, Keith Sweat — we don’t look at them as opening acts, because we are all legends. So, it’s the Legacy Tour for everybody.

Q: Speaking of legacy, New Edition’s certainly is huge. How do you see the band’s legacy now that it’s been 40 years since that first album dropped?

A: I don’t know if somebody can talk about their legacy. I would just say that I feel blessed. But in terms of what it was, how it is — it seems like that comes from a third party.

Q: Well, speaking of third parties, let’s chat about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. At what point do you think voters will finally get around to inducting New Edition into the Hall? One can certainly make the case that it’s long overdue.

A: We try not to look at it like there’s something wrong. There are so many bands, there are so many nominations — you can only do so many at one time. Who can say what they are doing is wrong? Who can say what they are doing is right?

Maybe they wanted to fix hip-hop first. Maybe now they need to come fix R&B and pop. That’s probably the real problem. They are over there appeasing a genre that is complaining, but they haven’t yet gotten to a genre that is just sitting there pounding the pavement.

We’ve been out there longer than some of those rappers. But that’s OK. They deserve to be there if they got nominated.

But that’s the real problem — just like the Grammys got leaned on by hip-hop.

Hip-hop leans on you. R&B just sings to you. There’s a difference.

Q: Well, Michael, I sure appreciate you taking the time to talk with me for this article.

A: Just do me a favor. Make sure it is B as in Boston, i, v as in Victor, i-n-s. Don’t let them put them an “e” in my name. Just B-I-V-I-N-S.

Q: Does that misspelling happen a lot?

A: It does. And it irritates me. And it irritates my mom, too.

Q: Well, I certainly don’t want your mom mad at me, so I’ll do my best to get it right. Thanks for the chat, Michael.

A: Happy early Easter to you, Jim. Take care.

Event starts {{ data.showing_start_time }}, new edition: the legacy tour with keith sweat, guy and special guest tank.

Iconic Grammy®-nominated, multi-platinum-selling R&B supergroup New Edition closed out 2022 with the highly successful “The Culture Tour,” nominated as one of the Top R&B Tours in the country by Pollstar. Selling out arenas across the country, the icons and The Black Promoters Collective (BPC) are happy to announce the 30-city “Legacy Tour” with a must-see lineup that includes a New Jack Swing reunion with Keith Sweat and the original members of Guy (Teddy Riley, Aaron Hall, and Damion Hall) and Tank will visit Little Caesars Arena on Saturday, March 25 at 7:30 p.m.

“Few recording artists can attest to a superior 40-year career that stands the test of time, but New Edition can. When we partnered with NE for “The Culture Tour,” although I knew it would be stellar, their show exceeded my expectations; the guys were nothing short of miraculous. We are excited about partnering with New Edition to further the legacy of the foundation they have already laid,” states BPC CEO Gary Guidry.

New Edition hit the scene in 1983 with their iconic #1 debut album Candy Girl disrupting the music industry 40 years ago. That same year, the album’s title cut knocked Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” out of the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot Black Singles chart. The group has gone on to win many awards, including BET’s “Lifetime Achievement” awards, and has one of the most highly watched biopics in music history, the 3-part BET series: The New Edition Story, which attracted more than 29 million viewers. Comprised of Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ralph Tresvant, and Johnny Gill, New Edition has remained one of the most influential R&B groups in the world for close to four decades. With a vast catalog, New Edition is ready to perform a host of new hits that weren’t performed in 2022’s “The Culture Tour,” giving their fans a whole new experience to tuck in their memory book.

Keith Sweat entered the charts with his 3X platinum debut solo album, Make It Last Forever, in 1987, giving the world its first New Jack Swing Billboard Hot 100 hit, “I Want Her.” The song, produced by Teddy Riley and Sweat, became the most successful R&B song in 1988 on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart. In 1997, Sweat formed the group LSG (Levert, Sweat, and Gill – Johnny Gill of New Edition), whose debut album, Levert.Sweat.Gill sold double platinum and produced the hit song “My Body,” which became a platinum single, spending seven weeks at #1 on the charts. In addition to touring and making new music, Sweat currently has the #1 nationally syndicated R&B evening radio show called The Sweat Hotel with Keith Sweat, reaching more than 50 markets across the country.

Teddy Riley ushered in a new musical genre called New Jack Swing, which included the formation of his group Guy with Aaron Hall and Damion Hall in 1987. The group’s first album, the self-titled masterpiece, quickly spawned the Billboard Hot 100 hit “I Like,” which, along with four other hit singles such as “Groove Me” and “Teddy’s Jam,” helped to propel the debut album to double platinum status. The group disbanded after their second album, The Future, citing the stresses of the tragic loss of their former manager. However, Teddy Riley went on to produce for the likes of Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga. In addition, he was instrumental in the rise of Bobby Brown’s solo career, creating the megahit “My Prerogative,” which Complex magazine says is the #1 New Jack Swing song of all time. The “Legacy Tour” will be the first time the group has come together to tour in more than 15 years.

On tour and bonding again, New Edition comes home

Boston’s distinguished and extremely eclectic musical scene has yielded thousands of bands spanning every genre and subgenre, but only a handful could be considered pop music royalty. Among the acts at the top of that list is R&B powerhouse New Edition.

The group that emerged from Roxbury in the early ‘80s to almost instant stardom has sold over 20 million records, garnered a huge international following, and spawned popular solo careers and a superstar offshoot band, Bell Biv DeVoe. Quite an achievement for an act discovered at a Hollywood Talent Night at the Strand Theater in Dorchester by music mogul Maurice Starr in 1982, which led to the recording of their chart-topping hit “Candy Girl” and a subsequent platinum album of the same name.

Over the course of their four-decade career, New Edition has experienced the highest of highs and some deep valleys, but Ralph Tresvant, Michael Bivins, Ricky Bell, Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, and Johnny Gill (who joined the band after Brown’s departure in 1987) have reunited to embark on their first tour in seven years.

After two years of lockdowns and social distancing, the show hitting the TD Garden Wednesday should be a special night out for old-school R&B fans who appreciate organic beats, romance, and dance, dance, dance.

“We’re not getting any younger, and the opportunity arose for us to be with each other again. We’re all at a point in our lives where it is necessary to do something together,” says Tresvant about the impetus for the tour.

“We’re always going to be able to do the solo careers and make that happen, but leaving New Edition on the shelf like that — we just didn’t think it was the appropriate thing to do and never intended it to happen. It was time to put the mothership on the road.”

He adds that the show will focus on classic New Edition material from their seven albums, and a “gumbo of songs” from the members’ side projects.

Entitled “The Culture Tour,” the name has special resonance for the band. “It seemed to fit what’s happening out here right now,” Tresvant says.

“A lot of people are trying to bond together, so it’s a celebration of Black culture because that’s what we are, but also human culture because New Edition fans are a wide variety of different cultures — that’s part of the beauty of this. At its essence, though, it’s for the people who come out of those projects, those from the inner-city streets, people who reflect our background, our upbringing, who we are as guys. All the people who raised us — we acknowledge them.”

The group has had a renaissance over the past decade with a well-received BET docu-drama miniseries on their career in 2017, the same year they received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. During November’s American Music Awards, they faced off against the New Kids on the Block in a much-celebrated “Battle of Boston Bands,” with New Edition getting rave notices.

New Edition and the New Kids on the Block performed together at the 2021 American Music Awards in Los Angeles.

As Tresvant readily admits, there have been rocky moments throughout the band’s history, including numerous public squabbles. Ultimately, the Roxbury natives and the Washington, D.C.-born Gill share a bond that transcends those conflicts.

“The main thing that binds us is friendship,” maintains the engaging Tresvant. “We weren’t put together piece by piece as a band. We were friends who played and ran around together, so we were close from the beginning in Roxbury.

“There’s also a passion for what we do. We love the music and wanted to be as big as possible — bigger than some of the artists we emulated and were inspired by. Once the train got rolling, we just wanted to keep it going despite the problems. We don’t always get along, but it’s like brothers and sisters — they don’t always see eye to eye either. You find a way to make the family work.”

While younger fans of Lil Yachty or Billie Eilish may not be familiar with the New Edition canon, the group’s influence can be heard all over modern R&B from younger acts like Giveon, to older R&B revivalists Silk Sonic, to K-Pop boy bands.

Tresvant is proud of the New Edition legacy and says it runs far deeper than the music.

“We added to the culture. We took off where the Jacksons and Temptations and others left off. We kept that tradition of music going and inspired other kids, who inspired other kids to make music and feed their families.”

He takes a moment to reflect. “Remember we were project kids and what we did helped us grow out of that situation and live our dreams. Our legacy is to keep inspiring people who are in the position we were in when we started — give them hope. Maybe they’ll think, ‘If they could do it, I can do it.’ That’s a big part of it.”

From left: Ralph Tresvant, Michael Bivins, Johnny Gill, Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, and Ricky Bell attended a ceremony honoring New Edition with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2017.

The band’s last album of original material, “One Love,” came out in 2004, but Tresvant says they will be working on a new record soon. They won’t be trying to reinvent their sound like so many legacy acts that fruitlessly try to chase young audiences with the hottest beatmakers.

“The industry has changed completely from when we were doing it, so we’d like to put out a record to stay relevant and keep the energy out there. It’s not to make a million dollars and think we’re going to go platinum. It’s more to stay active and give our fans something we’re proud of.”

The vocalist, who has put out three successful solo records, lives in Los Angeles now, but he still has family in Boston and insists that the entire band is looking forward to performing in the city that nurtured them.

“I feel like I’ve achieved a lot of the dreams I had growing up. I think we all do. For now, though, it’s all about New Edition, and we can’t wait to get back to play for Boston, which is just a special place. If we can get the guys down the street in Roxbury excited, we’ll have no problem with the rest of the world.”

New Edition released its debut album 40 years ago, and as members are celebrating that anniversary, theGrio is taking a look back on their story. A lot has happened in the last four decades!

New Edition’s origins

Before there was New Edition, there were three kids growing up together in Boston and singing together in elementary school : Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins and Bobby Brown. Eventually, Ralph Tresvant and Ronnie DeVoe joined them, and the five made up the original New Edition.

2022 Essence Festival Of Culture - Louisiana Superdome - Day 3

Determined to use their talents to make it out of Boston, the group went to multiple talent shows before eventually catching the attention of musician and producer Maurice Starr. They hitched their wagons to Starr and went on to record “Candy Girl” after signing on to a deal that gave them an initial bonus of $500.

However, things fell apart between New Edition and Starr when the paycheck came in. The biopic “The New Edition Story” describes the shock the rising stars felt when, despite a chart-topping single and a popular tour, they got a check for only $1.87 for the group to split. They left Starr and signed with MCA, releasing the album “New Edition” in 1984.

When Bobby Brown left

The group’s next album, “All for Love,” didn’t see as much success. After that, Bobby Brown left the group to pursue a solo career. At the time, he was attracting controversy of his own. As anyone who has seen his biopic, “The Bobby Brown Story,” knows, his vices in the ‘ 80s were winning and causing friction within the group.

Bobby Brown

“The New Edition Story” biopic describes members’ pressure from their manager to vote Brown out , though they told a different story during a 2012 reunion performance, with Ralph Tresvant claiming Brown told him that he wanted to leave and Brown claiming that he was told he was kicked out, essentially for bad dancing.

Whatever the case, Brown went on to have his own career, and New Edition brought in a new face: Johnny Gill. The singers had recorded one more album without Brown, “Under a Blue Moon,” and with Gill recorded “Heart Break” before they dissolved as the members pursued their own projects.

On again, off again

After “Heart Break,” New Edition splintered into different groups and solo projects, though the members occasionally got back together to record new music.

2017 BET Awards - Arrivals

The first attempt at a reunion ended up sparking headlines. With Brown rejoining the group, New Edition recorded “Home Again” and went on tour together, but that tour was beset by problems. Just weeks before the tour, Brown had a heart attack. Each of the members of the group had his own separate bus. And then, in New Mexico, Brown and DeVoe got into a fight onstage in which security for the two stars reportedly pulled guns on each other.

They tried another reunion in 2004, releasing “One Love” and going on tour. And then, in 2013, all six members reunited for a 30th-anniversary tour . They continued to tour every couple of years after that, ultimately culminating in their 40th-anniversary tour this year, which Brown has promised will be even better than ever because the infighting has come to an end.

Splinter groups

In addition to pursuing solo careers, the members of New Edition often performed together under different banners.

The first splinter group was formed by Bell, Bivens and DeVoe, appropriately named Bell Biv DeVoe. The three of them debuted in 1990 after feeling unappreciated by the group and sold three million copies of their album “Poison.” They released two more albums in the ’90s and then came back together in 2016 for “Three Stripes.”

new edition tour bus

In 2008, the other three members — Brown, Tresvant and Gill — formed their own group, Heads of State . They toured for years, playing each other’s music and essentially extending a reunion tour.

After the group enjoyed the spotlight of a biopic about them, Johnny Gill suggested that they might do a new album together. Ultimately, that reunion was limited to four members: Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell and Michael Bivins. They named themselves RBRM , after the first letters of their first names.

The group’s biopic

“The New Edition Story” hit BET at the start of 2017 as a miniseries , telling the story of New Edition as told by the group members themselves. All of the members were involved, allowing them to speak to stories that had long been rumors.

The biopic was so successful that it not only inspired RBRM to go on tour together but spawned a biopic for Bobby Brown as well, essentially picking up his story where the New Edition biopic left off.

Now you can catch New Edition reunited on the Legacy Tour, where members are celebrating 40 years since their first album release and showing the world that age is just a number when it comes to legendary talent.

Two shows are in New Jersey: March 18 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City and March 19 at the Prudential Center in Newark.

The New Edition reunited last year for the Culture Tour. It marked the first time on the road for the whole lineup since 2014.

"Few recording artists can attest to a superior 40-year career that stands the test of time, but New Edition can," said Gary Guidry of the Black Promoters Collective, the promoter of the tour, in a statement. "When we partnered with (New Edition) for the Culture Tour, although I knew it would be stellar, their show exceeded my expectations. The guys were nothing short of miraculous. We are excited about partnering with New Edition to further the legacy of the foundation they have already laid.”

New Edition hits include “Candy Girl,” “Cool It Now,” “Count Me Out,” “If It Isn't Love,” and “Mr. Telephone Man.” The group emerged from Boston in the early ‘80s.

Brown, who lived in Mendham with his late wife, Whitney Houston, is the subject of a new A&E reality television show, "Bobby Brown: Every Little Step."

Tickets will be available to the general public on Friday, December 16 at 10 am local and range from $59.50 to $179.50.

Tickets can be purchased here .

"Few recording artists can attest to a superior 40-year career that stands the test of time, but New Edition can. When we partnered with NE for "The Culture Tour," although I knew it would be stellar, their show exceeded my expectations; the guys were nothing short of miraculous. We are excited about partnering with New Edition to further the legacy of the foundation they have already laid," states BPC CEO Gary Guidry.

NEW EDITION hit the scene in 1983 with their iconic #1 debut album Candy Girl disrupting the music industry forty years ago. That same year, the album's title cut knocked Michael Jackson's "Beat It" out of the #1 spot on the Billboard "Hot Black Singles" chart.

The group has gone on to win many awards, including BET's "Lifetime Achievement" awards, and has one of the most highly watched biopics in music history, the 3-part BET series: The New Edition Story, which attracted more than 29 million viewers.

Comprised of Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ralph Tresvant, and Johnny Gill, New Edition has remained one of the most influential R&B groups in the world for close to four decades. With a vast catalog, New Edition is ready to perform a host of new hits that weren't performed in 2022's "The Culture Tour," giving their fans a whole new experience to tuck in their memory book.

KEITH SWEAT entered the charts with his 3X platinum debut solo album, Make It Last Forever , in 1987, giving the world its first New Jack Swing Billboard "Hot 100" hit, "I Want Her." The song, produced by Teddy Riley and Sweat, became the most successful R&B song in 1988 on the Billboard "Hot R&B Songs" chart.

In 1997, Sweat formed the group LSG (Levert, Sweat, and Gill - Johnny Gill of New Edition), whose debut album, Levert.Sweat.Gill sold double platinum and produced the hit song "My Body," which became a platinum single, spending seven weeks at #1 on the charts.

In addition to touring and making new music, Sweat currently has the #1 nationally syndicated R&B evening radio show called "The Sweat Hotel with Keith Sweat," reaching more than fifty markets across the country.

Teddy Riley ushered in a new musical genre called New Jack Swing, which included the formation of his group GUY with Aaron Hall and Damion Hall in 1987. The group's first album, the self-titled masterpiece, quickly spawned the Billboard "Hot 100" hit "I Like," which, along with four other hit singles such as "Groove Me" and "Teddy's Jam," helped to propel the debut album to double platinum status.

The group disbanded after their second album, The Future , citing the stresses of the tragic loss of their former manager. However, Teddy Riley went on to produce for the likes of Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga. I

n addition, he was instrumental in the rise of Bobby Brown's solo career, creating the megahit "My Prerogative," which Complex magazine says is the #1 New Jack Swing song of all time. The "Legacy Tour" will be the first time the group has come together to tour in more than fifteen years.

UBS Arena at Belmont Park is made for music and built for hockey. New York's newest premier entertainment and sports venue and home of the New York Islanders is developed in partnership with Oak View Group, the New York Islanders and Jeff Wilpon. Providing a significant boost to the regional economy, the world-class entertainment venue, with its timeless and classic design, bridges its iconic past with today's advanced technology and amenities.

2024 New York Auto Show: Everything You Missed

2024 nyias press conference jpg

By Stef Schrader

The 2024 New York International Auto Show debuted a cool new Kia compact sedan and two refreshed Hyundais, previewed the future of the Genesis marque and gave us an up-close look at hot new models from Nissan and Porsche. Electric vehicles continue to make big news — and win big awards from the press — while once again, the South Korean marques sort of stole the show.

Related: More 2024 New York Auto Show Coverage

Cars.com’s Editorial team got a sneak peek of the 2024 edition of the show before it opens to the public March 29. Here’s the highlight reel of the big stories and reveals we published from the show.

The Future of Genesis Is Luxurious and Fast

genesis gv60 magma concept 11 exterior scaled jpg

Genesis unveiled several concepts at the New York show that offer a preview of the brand’s direction. First off, there’s the Neolun, an elegantly proportioned electric SUV full of luxe materials and features, including a step to help you get in, a dash-mounted crystal sphere that rotates as the sound system is on and front seats that swivel to face rear passengers. Closer to production, however, is the GV60 Magma Concept that previews Genesis’ new Magma high-performance line; think BMW M but with more letters — and South Korean. With bright orange paint, body-colored accents inside and out, and a big wing on the back, it certainly got our attention.

The Forte’s Funky Replacement

kia k4 2025 09 exterior rear angle jpg

Kia’s bringing its next small sedan more in line with the automaker’s current naming conventions and styling language, and it looks pretty cool. The K4 keeps the Forte’s 147-horsepower four-cylinder as its base engine and offers a 195-hp, turbo 1.6-liter four-cylinder on higher trims. Sadly, it loses the dual-clutch automatic and manual transmission options that made the Forte GT a bit more fun, but it does double down on safety and convenience tech. According to Kia, this wider, longer Forte replacement offers the best rear legroom in its class, too.

Nissan Kicks Gets Rugged New Looks, AWD

nissan kicks 2025 01 exterior front angle jpg

The New York show also provided us with a look at the new Nissan Kicks , which got a slick modern redesign for 2025 and, for the first time ever, all-wheel drive as an option. We were impressed with the updates Nissan made to keep its popular small SUV competitive with the likes of hot new SUVs in its class including the Chevrolet Trax and Buick Envista. The new Kicks boasts its best interior yet by a long shot, too.

Porsche’s New EVs Are Familiar but Modern

porsche macan ev 2024 04 exterior profile jpg

Making their North American auto show debuts were Porsche’s new 2024 Macan EV and 2025 Taycan Turbo S . The Taycan Turbo S refresh is mostly beneath the sheet metal, so what we saw largely proved Porsche took a “don’t fix what works” approach to its latest version. Our closer look at the new Macan EV shows Porsche carried over a lot of familiar touches from across its line there, as well, but we found it to be rather uncomfortable for taller passengers, particularly in the rear seats. Only time will tell if the Porsche faithful will find its hot dual-motor EV setup worth the bump in price.

Sharp New Refreshes of Hyundai’s Tucson and Santa Cruz

hyundai santa cruz 2025 02 exterior front angle jpg

Hyundai debuted a couple of refreshes that we’re excited about to two of its models: the Tucson SUV and Santa Cruz pickup truck. For the 2025 Tucson , Hyundai finally fixed one of our biggest complaints by bringing physical controls back for key stereo and climate controls across every trim. While some of the frustrating touch-sensitive controls remain, the most used functions are at least covered by regular knobs and buttons, so that’s a start. Its cute-ute cousin, the 2025 Santa Cruz , also got the same readdition of select physical controls, as well as a more imposing front-end redesign and new off-road-oriented XRT trim.

Mini Cooper S and Polestar 4 Pricing Announcements

mini cooper s hardtop 2025 exterior oem 01 jpg

If you’re in the market for a new 2025 Polestar 4 or 2025 Mini Cooper S and wondered when they were going on sale, we have great news: You can now check out the full trim and pricing breakdowns for both models. The Polestar 4 electric fastback SUV starts at $56,300 (all prices include destination) and goes on sale in April. If you’re in the market for something much smaller and easier to park, check out our breakdown of the Mini Cooper S below, which starts at $33,195 and rolls out to dealerships in May.

New Edition The Culture Tour

Veteran R&B group New Edition headlines an iconic lineupwiththe legendary Charlie Wilson , along with special guest, Jodeci , the bad boys of R&B.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, December 17 at 10 AM.

In 1983, New Edition released their debut single Candy Girl off their self-titled album, hitting No.1 on the Billboard Hot Black Single Charts, jumping ahead of Michael Jackson’s Beat It. Since then, New Edition has released more than six studio albums, received multiple Soul Train and American Music Awards, and a Grammy Award nomination. In 2017, BET Network released their three-part Biopic: The New Edition Story , airing over three consecutive nights. The mini-series attracted 29 million total viewers. That same year, the network honored them with the BET Lifetime Achievement Award, recognizing the group as one of the innovators of R&B. They have remained one of the most influential R&B groups of the last 30 years and counting, catapulting the solo careers of Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill, and Ralph Tresvant, and Bell Biv DeVoe.

Viewers experienced a sense of nostalgia during the American Music Awards in November 2021, when New Edition performed alongside 80’s boy band, New Kids on the Block. Often credited as the creators of the modern-day boy bands, New Edition will attract fans old and new. Starring all six members, Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ralph Tresvant, and Johnny Gill, this is the group’s first tour since 2014.

Moscow metro tour: architectural styles of the subway.

new edition tour bus

Duration: 2 hours

Categories: Culture & History, Sightseeing

This metro tour of Russia’s capital and most populous city, Moscow, is your chance to get a unique insight into the beautiful and impressive architecture of the city's underground stations. Admire their marble walls and high ceilings representing Stalin's desire for glory after World War 2, and see first-hand how the interiors change with the rise of new political eras. Your guide will lead you through the complex network, which is one of the most heavily used rapid transit systems worldwide, with over two billion travelers in 2011.

Opened in 1935, Moscow’s underground system, now 190 miles (305 km) long with 185 stations, is today one the largest and most heavily used rapid transit systems in the world. On this Moscow metro tour, discover the impressive architecture of Moscow’s underground stations and learn how they reflect the Soviet era.

Getting around by metro, your local guide will take you through parts of Moscow’s infamous history. Stop at stations built during the time of the USSR (Soviet Union) that are praised as one of the most extravagant architectural projects from Stalin’s time. After World War 2, he was keen on establishing Stalinist architecture to represent his rising regime and a recognized empire. Learn how when his successor started the de-Stalinization of the former Soviet Union in 1953, the extravagancy of the architecture was toned down.

Discover how the unique character of each station reflected several different eras. While stations like Kievskaya and Slavyansky Bulvar have pompous halls and high stucco ceilings brimming with extravagant decorations, those built later, like Volzhskaya, are lightly adorned with sparse furnishings. Architect Alexey Dushkin and painter Alexander Deyneka were just two of the many artists who made these magnificent landmarks possible.

Revel in Moscow's glory days, as well as the years of scarcity, on this fascinating Moscow metro experience. Conclude your tour at one of the central stations in Moscow. If you're lucky, you may even find the secret entrance to the unconfirmed Metro-2, a parallel underground system used by the government -- a mystery which has neither been denied nor confirmed today.

The comforts of your home town and the environment you are used to are more of a rarity. Expect some challenging transport options, visits to local sites and areas that don't resemble anything at home.

To help you choose the trip that's right for you, we've broken all of our trips down into four service levels. Measuring the comfort level of the accommodation and transport.
