New Edition returns to the New Jack swing of things.
After a massive tour in 2022, the famed R&B group decided to do it all again next year and will lead their “Legacy Tour” from March 9th to April 30th through arenas across North America.
And no, you don’t have to worry, the whole group – Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Ralph and Johnny – will be there.
To sweeten the deal, they’re also bringing fellow icons Keith Sweat, the recently reunited Guy and Tank to the ride.
The 30-date tour will see New Edition and their impressive roster of supporting acts make three stops in the NY/NJ area – first at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall on March 18th and then at Newark’s Prudential Center on March 19th finally perform at Elmont’s UBS Arena on April 20th.
So if you’re one of the many #NE4Lifern and can’t wait to hear Candy Girl live, here’s everything you need to know about the 2023 Legacy Tour.

Opening book of the New Edition
The lineup for the “Legacy Tour” is really stacked. In case you’re new to the tour’s special guests, we’ve got a quick refresher for you.
Keith sweat has five top 10 Billboard hits and 14 massive albums under his belt, making him a real headliner himself. In fact, he has some arena gigs of his own lined up for next year. If you want to fall in love with his music all over again, check out “Twisted”, one of the greatest slow jams of all time.
Guy, which currently consists of Teddy Riley, Aaron Hall and Damion Hall, broke up in 1991 and have gotten back together several times since the initial breakup. Most recently, the New Jack Swing pioneers played a handful of gigs in 2018-19, releasing their classic hits ‘Let’s Chill’ and ‘Groove Me’.
tank is a bit newer on the scene, starting in 2001. For the last two decades he has consistently released music – including hit singles “Maybe I Deserve”, “Please Don’t Go” and “When We” – and is also developing a beautiful one acting career. You can recognize him very well from his work in The Real Husbands of Hollywood, Grown Folks and of course The New Edition Story.
