Foxwoods Resort Casino, the largest resort casino in North America, welcomes the popular 80’s R&B group, New Edition, on Saturday, June 26 at 7:30 p.m. Known for their number one singles including “Candy Girl,” “Is This The End,” and “Hit Me Off,” New Edition will mesmerize the Grand Theater with their heart-throb classics.

 

Tickets priced at $30, $49, and $59 are on sale now and may be purchased online at www.foxwoods.com or by calling the Foxwoods’ Box Office at 800-200-2882 or Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000. Tickets are also available by visiting the box office.

 

From performing on tables to entering talent shows, New Edition climbed their way into the R&B spotlight early on with their Jackson 5-inspired material. They quickly gained success upon the release of their debut album, Candy Girl.  As the group matured and progressed through the 1990’s, they laid the foundation for the hybrid fusion of Hip-Hop and R&B that is known as “The New Jack Movement.” They have since paved the way for boy bands like Boyz II Men, New Kids on the Block, Backstreet Boys and N’ Sync to emerge. New Edition has left their mark in the R&B industry, selling over 40 million records worldwide.

 

All members of New Edition have also experienced individual success on solo projects before reuniting in 1991. In 2012, New Edition received the Lifetime Achievement Award during the Soul Train Awards. New Edition continues to record music, while still performing throughout the United States, and supports various community organizations through the New Edition Foundation.
