boyz ii men announce las vegas show gi Boyz II Men announces new show in Las Vegas

Sooner or later, every musical act ends up in Las Vegas. Now, like Frank Sinatra and Celine Dion and so many more, R&B group Boyz II Men will headline at the Mirage in Las Vegas.

The group announced the new show on Thursday (Jan. 3). The singers will perform two shows each weekend at the Terry Fator Theater, starting on March 1, 2013 and running for a total of 78 performances. Organizers of the new show have only hinted at the content: Boyz II Men’s 1991 hit, “Motownphilly,” will definitely be a part of the act, but other aspects will be a surprise.

With 60 million records, Boyz II Men counts as the best-selling R&B group of all time. Its members — Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris and Shawn Stockman (the fourth member, bass singer Michael McCary, left the group in 2003 for health reasons) — leapt to fame with 1991’s hit album, “Cooleyhighharmony.” The group had its first number 1 single in the following year with “The End of the Road.”

Tickets for the Boyz II Men show are priced starting at $40.
