If you haven’t already heard, Motown Philly is back again, but this time in Las Vegas as the four-time Grammy Award-winning R&B sensation Boyz II Men
bring their new show to The Mirage
for a lengthy 78-show run beginning this Friday, March 1.
It’s been more than 20 years since Boyz II Men popped onto the R&B scene with their gushing love ballads and in that time, the slow-jammers have skyrocketed into stardom winning four Grammy Awards, 9 American Music Awards, 9 Soul Train Awards, 3 Billboard Awards and a 2011 MBO Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. Boyz II Men has also sold more than 60 million albums and is still the best-selling R&B group of all time! It is no wonder The Entertainment Capital of the World has invited Boyz II Men to bring their romantic hits to the Mirage stage. But even with all of the awards and accolades some might wonder where Boyz II Men and their music fit into the Las Vegas scene.
They won’t have flashy showgirls, topless acts, high-flying stunts or wild and wacky numbers, but Boyz II Men will bring their biggest hits and prove that there is still a place for romance and the softer side of music on the Strip. They plan to stay true to their style by relying heavily on their vocal talents rather than flashy props and sets. “We are definitely going to keep the good old-fashioned approach of singing our hearts out on the stage,” said Shawn Stockman “It’s what we do, a cornerstone that we are known for, and you are definitely going to see that…”
Add in a few bells and whistles (it is Vegas after all) and Boyz II Men’s biggest hits including “End of the Road,” “Motown Philly,” “One Sweet Day,” and new material from their latest album, Twenty and you have a show that will have audiences slow dancing in the aisles and falling in love all over gain with their partner. Whoever said romance is dead will certainly be revived after Boyz II Men hit the Mirage stage.
The Motown crooners including founder and baritone Nathan Morris and tenors Wayne Morris and Shawn Stockman will perform 78 shows in the Terry Fator
Theatre on select weekend dates March 1 through Dec, 29.
