A hip-hop time machine called the ‘I Love the ’90s‘ tour took concertgoers back to the past on Saturday at Target Center. With six main artists — including headliners Vanilla Ice and Salt-N-Pepa — it was a night of fun, carefree nostalgia.
Young MC kicked off the evening with his classic “Bust A Move.” Coolio, backed by a live band, came next, doing “Gangsta’s Paradise” and more. The humorous Kid ’n Play then delivered one of the night’s most engaging sets. RobBase stepped up the volume on the party and had the crowd instantly dancing in the aisles.
Salt-N-Pepa were the penultimate act. Complete with male dancers and DJ Spinderella, they really got the crowd revved up. There was certainly some “Shoop” and discussions about lovemaking in their hour-long set. The crowd thinned out a bit after that, but the majority of the fans stuck around to have their time travel mission completed by Vanilla Ice on a stage decked out with inflatable monster plants and a death figure. And so, just like an almost decade ago, the ’90s came to an odd close once again.
