Vanilla Ice, Coolio to perform at ’90s concert at Packard

The I Love the ’90s Tour, which originally was booked at the Youngstown Foundation Amphitheatre in August and canceled, now is coming to Packard Music Hall with a slightly different lineup.

Vanilla Ice, All-4-One and C+C Music Factory featuring Freedom Williams, all part of the originally announced lineup, now will be joined by Coolio for a day-after-Thanksgiving performance Nov. 26.

Vanilla Ice, of course, is best known for his 1990 hit “Ice Ice Baby,” the first hip hop song to top the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise” was the biggest selling singe of 1995 and earned Coolio a Grammy Award and two MTV Video Music Awards. His other hits include “Too Hot,” “1, 2, 3, 4 (Sumpin’ New),” “It’s All the Way Live (Now)” and “C U When U Get There.”

All-4-One’s hit singles include “So Much in Love,” “I Swear,” “I Can Love You Like That” and “Someday.” C+C Music Factory had seven No. 1 dance hits in the ’90s — “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now),” “Here We Go (Let’s Rock & Roll),” “Things That Make You Go Hmmm …,” “Just a Touch of Love,” “Keep It Comin’ (Dance Till You Can’t Dance No More),” “Do You Wanna Get Funky” and “I’ll Always Be Around.”

Tickets for the 8 p.m. show range from $35 to $99.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at the Packard box office and through Ticketmaster.

An online only presale runs from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday with the password: PACKARD.
