TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – One year ago, 60,000 people literally jammed Doak Campbell Stadium following the Garnet and Gold Spring Game for a 1990s-themed bash.
There were 90s-styled end zones, 1990s imagery around the stadium and dozens of 1990s-era football players taking part in an alumni flag-football game at halftime.
Florida State then capped a pitch-perfect evening with a concert by 1990s music icons Vanilla Ice, Salt-n-Pepa and Rob Base.
And what could be more 1990s than a sequel?
On April 6, Florida State will cap its second spring under coach Willie Taggart with another round of 1990s pop stars: MC Hammer, Tone Loc and Color Me Badd.
Call it: “The 90s: Part II.”
The concert will be held immediately after the annual Garnet and Gold Spring Game, which is set to begin at 4 p.m. General admission tickets for the game are only $10 and the concert is free with your ticket from the game. Other ticket options are available by visiting Seminoles.com (Link)
One of the most recognizable names of the decade, MC Hammer burst onto the pop music scene in 1990 with his hit “U Can’t Touch This.”
MC Hammer has since sold more than 50 million albums, won three Grammy Awards and earned eight American Music Awards.
His 1990 album, “Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em” spent 21 weeks atop the Billboard 200 and became the first hip-hop album to be certified “diamond” (over 10 million units sold) by the Recording Industry Association of America.
Hammer’s stop in Tallahassee – part of his “Hammer’s House Party” tour – is his first scheduled date in Florida in more than 10 years.
He’ll be joined by multi-platinum artists Tone Loc and Color Me Badd.
Tone Loc boasts two No. 1 singles – “Wild Thing” and “Funky Cold Medina” – as well as feature film roles in 1990s blockbusters “Poetic Justice,” “Surf Ninjas,” “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” and “Heat.”
Color Me Badd, meanwhile, had three No. 1 singles and sold more than three million copies of their debut record “C.M.B.”
