Go retro with our “New Edition…Together and solo” playlist (playing the Mann on Sunday)
There’s going to be a lot of nostalgia happening at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday night when the Party in Farmount Park concert lands, showcasing the pop hitmakers of 1986 – New Edition, Salt-n-Pepa and El DeBarge. If, like myself, you were a kid in the mid-80s, this lineup probably has you thinking of roller rink parties and Friday afternoon school bus rides, of having your Walkman cranked and the top ten countdown you taped off the radio bumpin’. We compiled a playlist to get you in the mood for your retro Sunday night concert, and we’re calling “New Edition…Together and solo” featuring hits from these quintessential 80s pop singers, as well as their offshoots – solo work from Booby Brown, Johnny Gill, Ralph Tresvant and the awesome beatmasters of Bell Biv Devoe. Enjoy! The Party in Fairmount Park with New Edition, Salt-n-Pepa and El DeBarge comes to The Mann Center for the Performing Arts, 5201 Parkside Ave., at 6 p.m. on Sun. Aug. 5. Tickets to the all-ages show range from $39.50 to $125.
