Motownphilly's back again!

I'm not sure if I'm proud to admit this but in order to have full disclosure on this blog I have to....I am a Boyz II Men fan. I have been since 1991 when "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday" came out. I've always been a sucker for a good R'n'B vibe and for about 5-10 years in the 90s there was no one better. My friends and I were known to bust out an airband performance of "One Sweet Day" at parties. I'll admit that their career has been in a decline but their singing talent remains. Why am I bringing this up today? Because tonight I will be seeing the Boyz live in concert. When I was out on the town yesterday picking up my new passport at the Canada office I noticed some Boyz II Men signs on the street. I saw the date on the poster 1/23...in the last 24 hrs I managed to track down some tickets and a date. I'm really excited! Back in high school a girl I was dating got us front row tickets to see Boyz at Sask Place. I was so happy and started to count down the days to the show. Then my dream was shattered, a week or two before the show they cancelled. Rumor had it that they hadn't sold enough tickets to make it worthwhile. I'm still bitter about it but I can't pass up this chance to see them. I'll update you tomorrow about the show.

Glad you made it to the show. I heard about it a few weeks ago and figured you had heard, meant to mention it to you. Can't wait to hear about it!

You should check out Lemar, he's a UK artist with a Boyz sound. I personally love him, and have his new album.

Yes!! I'm not the only one. I'm so jealous, I've always wanted to see the BoyZ live. Make sure you post a picture for me, can't wait to hear how the show went.

I'm a sucker for their song "Mama". Cheesy but good! Hope the concert is a good one.
