The revue, which includes chart-toppers Salt-N-Pepa, Coolio, Tone Loc and Color Me Badd will be at the Tacoma Dome Aug. 26 and Marymoor Park on Aug. 27.
Did you grow up watching rap videos on MTV and listening to tunes on a Walkman? If so, the nostalgia revue “I Love the ’90s” is tailor-made for you. The reportedly crisply produced extravaganza hits two Northwest venues this weekend — the Tacoma Dome on Friday (Aug. 26) and Marymoor Park (Aug. 27).
The big headliner is the indefatigable Salt-N-Pepa (pictured), whose “Let’s Talk About Sex,” “Shoop” and “Push It” were huge hits in their day. But the four-hour bash also includes All 4 One, Color Me Badd, Rob Base, Coolio, Tone Loc and Young MC.
The last artist on that list — British-American rapper Marvin Young — has an interesting if indirect local connection. Young’s biggest hit, “Busta Move,” which won a 1990 Grammy, is based on a riff played by Seattle band Ballin’ Jack on its song “Found a Child.” The band featured ace guitarist Glenn Thomas, who died in May of this year.
7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26, at the Tacoma Dome, 2727 E. D St., Tacoma; $25.50-$99.50 (800-745-3000 or ticketmaster.com).
