90s Nostalgia Returns to Erie Insurance Arena by Matt Swanseger

Friday, Feb. 17

Sweating in your windbreaker because you’re worried you left your youth back in the 90s? Call off the search party; the I Love The 90s Tour may be just the ticket to reclaim your missing inner child.

Let nostalgia enrobe you like a well-worn Starter jacket with six sentimental favorites from the decade that brought us Crystal Pepsi, AOL, and Pogs.

Let nostalgia enrobe you like a well-worn Starter jacket with six sentimental favorites from the decade that brought us Crystal Pepsi, AOL, and Pogs. No longer content to be fodder for VH1 specials and reality shows, these artists are ready to matter to you again as much as you (the fans) have always mattered to them. Vanilla Ice (“Ice, Ice Baby,” “Go Ninja”), Coolio (“Fantastic Voyage,” “Gangsta’s Paradise”), Salt N’ Pepa (“Push It,” “Shoop”), Tone Loc (“Wild Thing,” “Funky Cold Medina”), and Young MC (“Bust a Move,” “Principal’s Office) round out the all-star hip hop lineup, with sensitive R&B quartet All 4 One (“I Swear,” “I Can Love You Like That”) helping slow things down for a moment.

You will need a breather, too, because the Erie Insurance Arena floor will be open to all amateur choreographers. Of course, if you grew up with the novelty of watching music videos on MTV (!), you’ll likely have the routines etched in memory anyway. Since it’s 2017 and not 1997, you can call up your BFFs and order your tickets from the internet at the same time! If you can’t find value in perspective, then you may be more Clueless than Cher Horowitz. – Matt Swanseger
