take us back to the ‘90s in a hit packed, nostalgic night out


(Peoria) October 3rd 2016 - Following early sold out shows and mounting demand from fans, I Love The ‘90s Tour continues to dominate the country as the nostalgia-driven go-to tour of beloved ‘90s acts. G 102.3 is bringing this once-in-a-lifetime lineup to Peoria for a nostalgia-driven blast from the past at the SMG-managed Peoria Civic Center Arena, on Thursday, December 15th , at 7:00 p.m, doors open at 5:30pm.


Tickets are $45, $55, $65 and $85 and will go on sale on Friday, October 7th at 11:00AM. Tickets can be purchased at the Toyota Box Office at the Peoria Civic Center, online at Ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000.


This inaugural edition of I Love The ‘90s Tour invites attendees to reminisce about the trend-setting decade with some of the most iconic, indelible names in rap, hip hop and R&B.


Audiences can expect to hear chart-topping hits like “Let’s Talk About Sex”, “Shoop,” “Ice, Ice Baby,”  “Gangsta’s Paradise,” “Funky Cold Medina,” “Busta Move,” “It Takes Two,” and more during a fun-filled night out that doubles as an arena-sized dance party.


Houston Press praised the tour as “the live version of Yo! MTV Raps with Fab Five Freddy” and Entertainment Weekly said the “arena-sized dance party… promises to be all that and a bag of chips.”


The tour kicked off with a few shows this spring, but popular demand turned it into a nationwide sensation. "It feels like you're taking people back to a time in their lives that they really enjoyed," Cheryl "Salt" James explained in USA Today about the tour's appeal. "It's just one big Nineties party."
