Fans anxiously looking forward to the upcoming tour by US outfit Bell Biv Devoe and fellow R&B sensation Ginuwine will have to wait a little bit longer, with their touring company Frontier announcing this morning that the artists’ Aussie visit has been postponed until August.
This one’s nothing to do with slow ticket sales or members going sick. On the contrary… the three members of Bell Biv Devoe (Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, and Ronnie DeVoe) have instead agreed to take part in a reunion concert series with their former group New Edition, in the United States.
Bell Biv Devoe had a top 20 hit in Australia with their 1992 single ‘Gangsta’ and also guested on the Janet Jackson/Luther Vandross duet ‘The Best Things In Life Are Free’. Their 1993 album ‘Hootie Mack’ hit No.3.
Ginuwine, meanwhile, hit the big time with his debut single ‘Pony’ in 1996, peaking at No.3 on the ARIA singles chart.
But the delay in their visit is not all bad news, with Frontier confirming they’ve added a second show in Melbourne to the schedule.
Tickets for the new date are on sale on Monday April 16.
