Outlaw Field: I Love The '90s Tour

When: Thu., Aug. 25, 5:30 p.m. 2016

If you miss your MTV—you know, back when it was actual "music television"—Outlaw Field at the Idaho Botanical Garden is about to become a portal to those simpler times when Pepsi was clear, colors were hyper and the bigger the pants, the better.

The good old days return with the I Love the '90s Tour, descending on Boise Thursday, Aug. 25, with an almost unbelievable lineup of the decade's most memorable acts, including: Vanilla Ice, Salt N Pepa with DJ Spinderella, Color Me Badd, Tone Loc, Rob Base and Young MC.

Sure, the neon excesses of the era make for easy latter-day mockery, but between those six aforementioned acts, we're talking about at least 12 American Music Awards wins or nominations, no fewer than nine Grammy nods or wins, and a combined number of records sold that we don't have time or inclination to calculate.

Laugh all you want about rapper pants and flat-top fades, but to alter a phrase from Rob Base, "It takes six to make a thing go right."

Price: $41-$46
