LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (SEPTEMBER 29, 2017) (REUTERS) – After a successful run in the US, the 90’s-inspired series of concerts arrive in the UK.
‘I Love the 90’s’ opened its UK tour-leg on Friday (September 29) at the SSE Arena Wembley in London.
Actor and singer Vanilla Ice headlined the night of nostalgia alongside rapper Coolio, female rap group Salt N Pepa, Young MC, Color Me Badd and Tone Loc.
Fans were dressed to the occasion and singing every lyric from famous 90’s tunes including the iconic ‘Ice ice Baby’, ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ and ‘Push It’.
Actor, singer and reality star Vanilla Ice spoke to Reuters before the concert assuring he doesn’t have any regrets in life.
“Do I have many things that if I could go back and change I would? Everybody would, but I don’t think about that. I think about here and I think about now.”
54-year-old rapper Coolio, famous for the 1995 song ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’, told Reuters the tune was a bless but also a curse.
“Because of the success of ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’, music I did after wasn’t that it wasn’t good music, it’s just that people were so stuck on ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ that their ear was biased,” he said.
The American rapper, who used Stevie Wonder’s 1976 song ‘Pastime Paradise’ to create his rap version, added he felt “raped” by the legendary musician.
“He allowed me to use it, but he also took 95 percent of the publishing. He robbed the song, he raped me actually. I should have said no I’m not using it.”
‘I Love the 90’s tour’ goes to Scotland, Ireland, Bristol, Liverpool ending in Birmingham on October 7.
