HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts is bringing Boyz II Men to the stage on Sept. 24. The 7:30 p.m. concert replaces the originally scheduled May 21 performance that the group had to postpone.
“We are excited to finally bring Boyz II Men to the Columbia stage,” said Interim Columbia Theatre Director Ken Boulton. “Their vocal talent and showmanship are unparalleled.”
Formed in Philadelphia in 1988, Boyz II Men has sold more that 60 million albums and recorded five number one hit songs, including “End of the Road,” “I’ll Make Love to You” and “On Bended Knee.” Hailed by the Recording Industry Association of America as the most commercially successful R&B group of all time, the trio has also won a host of awards, including four Grammys.
Known for their impressive vocal sound, synchronized dance routines and polished stage presence, Boyz II Men returns to the stage with their new album “Motown: A Journey Through Hitsville USA,” paying homage to such greats as Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson and The Temptations.
Tickets for Boyz II Men are $58, Orchestra; $64, Loge; and $48, Balcony and are available at the Columbia box office, 220 East Thomas Street, 985-543-4371, or online at columbiatheatre.org.
Box office hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and one hour before performance times. Southeastern students may purchase half-priced tickets, while supplies last, at the box office with university I.D.
