New Edition to play Providence in April

, Staff

Afer a successful show in Connecticut last month, New Edition will return to New England next month for a show in Rhode Island. The recently reunited 80’s R&B favorites will perform at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence on Friday, April 20. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $47 to $67, are now on sale through Ticketmaster.

Original New Edition members Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill reunited last July to perform at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans. The Boston-bred group is best know for their early 80’s hits “Candy Girl” and “Cool It Now”. The band’s last studio release, 2004’s One Love, was recorded without Brown.
