‘Whatta’ Concert

‘Whatta’ Concert

The inaugural I Love the '90s tour brings Salt-N-Pepa (!), Coolio, Tone Loc, Rob Base, Young MC and, ahem, Vanilla Ice to Albuquerque on June 19.

I Love the ’90s Tour Hits ABQ


The I Love the ’90s Tour hits Sandia Resort and Casino (30 Rainbow Road) on Sunday, June 19. We’re talking Salt-N-Pepa, Vanilla Ice, Coolio, Tone Loc, Rob Base and Young MC.

Save Vanilla Ice, who certainly boasts intense symbolic value, these performers all have impressive chops and résumés. My inner ’90s fangirl is especially psyched about Salt-N-Pepa. Many an iconic 1990s hit issued forth in the heavenly voices of Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton, soundtracked by corresponding breaks and beats courtesy of Deidra Roper aka DJ Spinderella.

From 1986’s “Hot, Cool & Vicious” to 1993’s “Very Necessary,” Salt-N-Pepa injected danceable, sex-positive feminist anthems like “Push It,” “Let’s Talk About Sex” and “None of Your Business” into the cultural vernacular. Whatever your fave ’90s earworm, spend time with ’90s icons on Sunday, June 19. This old-school party kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $30 to $55. Learn more at ilovethe90stour.com
