Before Bell Biv DeVoe warned that girl was “Poison,” Johnny Gill “Just Got Paid,” Ralph Tresvant boasted his “Sensitivity,” and Bobby Brown declared it was “My Prerogative,” all six new jack swingers strutted across stages as teen sensation New Edition. Fully reunited and dressed to the nines, the soulful sextet packs the stage with decades of accumulated Top 10 classics and smooth dance moves. The nearly two-hour set spans the group’s entire career, from falsetto-laden classics such as “Candy Girl” and “Cool It Now,” to later hits such as “If It Isn’t Love,” all mixed with stacks of tracks from their successful solo careers. This tour finds them putting on a show that's "loose, fast-paced, high-spirited, loaded with hits and personality, and thoroughly entertaining," according to NJ.com's review of a recent concert, bringing to life a catalog of songs that stick to ears like honeycomb earmuffs.
