The Best 90’s Nostalgia Tours For Festival Season

It’s officially concert and festival season i.e. SUMMERTIME!!! If you’re a ’90s music lover like I am you gotta check out tours from some of the biggest bands of the decade. Super boy bands New Kids On The Block, Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees are teaming up for a power house tour filled with their signature love songs and coordinated dance moves. Matchbox Twenty and Goo Goo Dolls will be pounding out hit after hit after hit while the Counting Crows and The Wallflowers will be rocking it out. All three tours are (hopefully) coming to a city near you.

In true Slacker music sharing fashion I’ve got one new song from one classic song from all the bands plus links to get information and tickets to their show. So dig into your boxes in the attic, grab your Doc Martens, flannel shirts and overalls and get ready for these totally wicked ’90s tours.

New Kids On The Block, Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees are all touring for all the boy band lovers out there. Don’t be ashamed, we are fans too.

New Series “I Am the DJ” Debuts with Counting Crows

DJ-COUNTING-CROWS-472x472There is nothing better than personal music recommendations from people you trust- unless of course that person happens to be a famous musician.

Our new series “I Am the DJ” gives a glimpse into the music collection of some of our favorite artists as they showcase their favorite songs, biggest influences and specialized playlists. To debut the series, Slacker sat down with Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz to build an entire radio station comprised of his favorite songs.

Adam put together an audio journey through his influences and the emerging acts that he so passionately embraces on his Outlaw Roadshow project.  From Phoenix and Delta Kids to Pixies classics and even Naughty by Nature – the station is, much like Adam, an eclectic mix of various styles that mesh together perfectly.

Head over to   “I Am the DJ: Counting Crows” on Slacker and stay tuned for more artists coming soon!
