Eighties R&B group New Edition had high expectations for 2012, and they're not letting fans down.
According to Centric TV, all six original members have laid out a schedule for their 30th anniversary tour, starting with a stop in Louisville Kentucky on February 10.
With Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Johnny Gil, Ricky Bell, Ralph Tresvant and Michael Bivins all on board, fans can expect to hear old hits like "Can You Stand the Rain" as well as the singles that launched their solo careers.
The initial 13 stops appear to be part of the group's plan to return to the spotlight in anticipation of celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of their first album, "Candy Girl," in 2013.
Ronnie DeVoe told Billboard.com last year, "2012 is going to be an incredible year for us. Of course, we want to get to the 40th and 50th [anniversaries], too, but we just feel like our road to the 30th is going to be special...It's just gonna be an incredible ride."
If you want to join them on that ride, check out the rest of initial tour dates below. Ticket prices range from $59.50 to $125 according to Ticketmaster, and are currently on pre-sale, with a general sale starting January 17.

New Edition held it Dow on Sunday, May 6, 2012 in Columbia, SC. All 6 member were present. They were HOT?! They are scheduled to perform in Greenville,SC on September 21, 2012. I plan to be there. I've LOVED them since 6th grade when Candy Girl came out. I will love them as we continue to grow in age, wisdom and live. Yes they have experienced trials, tribulations and success individually and collectively throughout 30 years. Havent We ALL!!! That's called LIFE!, GOD's focus is not the situations but how we handle and conduct ourselves. NE4Life!!!!!!

Just got home from the New Edition concert in Shreveport,Louisiana...If they're in a city near you...go check them out!!!(THEY STILL GOT IT).One of the best concerts I've been to in a long time.They really turned it out..If you were a teenager back in the 80's you will really enjoy it.(Better than when they were here in 1985)

Anybody that is putting down NE have probably never seen them perform. These Guys are AWESOME singers and dancers. And ALL members are sheduled to appear. Even Bobby.
Been waiting all my life to see NE in NIGERIA.
coolRobb the pig throwing tantrums from the primitive caves of Europe
I love New Edition i can't wait to see them i will be the first in line to buy my ticket they put on a real good show i'm all about old school it's the best, keep up the good work New Edition just overlook the haters.
When is New Edition coming to the Bay Area????
I attended the concert in Nashville and it was the best concert I have been to in years. NE was on point and of course, this was the show Bobby missed to fly back to LA but the other 5 guys held it down and they did do Tenderoni and My Perrogative with Ralph taking lead. I would recommend anybody that has a chance to see this concert, purchase a ticket and enjoy it. When they did Popcorn Love, Jealous Girl, My Secret....and all the old hits, everyone in the arena was on their feet singing along. Ain't nothing like good, clean music..........where has it gone ?????????
I attended the concert last night in Cincinnati and it's the best one I've been to in a while. Great stage show. If they come to a town near you go check them out. You won't be disappointed. However the opening act KC & JoJo was terrible. They didn't have a band and barely sang so it was like a really painful form of karaoke.
when is that tour coming to Vegas??
They need to come to Texas, preferably Dallas. Love me some NE!!!
I wish they were coming close to Michigan...Chicago will do! I am and always has been a huge New Edition fan! Good luck! #NE4Life
and 9th of march in Lagos Nigeria
Saw them Friday not. They were off the chain.
@CoolRobb – sounds like u have no life....ghetto venues huh- how many tox have u sold in this lifetime...I am guessing "0"! What a loser... anyway funny how folsk are happy when the Boss, Van Halen etc get back togtehr and tour but hate on NE. NKOTB...please anyone who knows music and history know that NE's manager left and went on to create the lighter version in an attempt to cross over and sell more records – no disrespect to NK but NE wasa dn is the original. I have tix for the UpperMarlboro show, will be purchasing for the Baltimore AND Philly shows as well. Good clean music from a great era in music ...NE4LIFE!!!
Looks like nothing but ghetto venues. And who is that nagger monkey on the far right playing the electric guitar? I thought they could only dance jig a-boo style...like they were in Africa.
New edition the best group ever
I saw the first reunion tour & I'd love to see this one too. It's a great show & def worth the money. I saw BEL,BIV, DEVOE in 2011 in the Boston, MA area. I'm really hoping they add more concert dates & come back to Boston for this tour. Boston Boys should play in Boston... shouldn't they?
Yes, I love NE! They should have a Boston date tho!! Hopefully for 2013!
saw them in new orlean in july of 2011 they were worth every cent i paid and i would paid double to go see them again. They never missed a beat or tune. wished they were coming near me.
I cnt believe their havin a concert,I'm such a big fan of them. I will be in there,I jus would luv 2 see ronnie devoe.:')
I have my ticket & I am excited to see this New Edition Reunion show, they always perform on point ......lovely.oNE loVE 2012!
U must live under a rock or ur not a fan of great music if u hate on New Edition. Its 2012 and their shows sellout. Trust..i know!
For all of the doubters and haters, I run New Editiin's fan club which has been going strong since 1995 and has almost 5 million members. All of their shows have been sold out so far. So keep hating... It just fuels the excitement.
Will they be coming to the Dallas area?
I wondering if they are going to add more stops on their tour. I'm hoping that they add Chicago on the list. NE 4Ever!!!!!
They're not "back", they've been touring for years. And when they're not, they tour as individuals. BBD, Johnny, Bobby, Ralph. They never left. Must see show if you haven't !!!
I'm glad they are back. New Edition is a great group that puts on a pretty good show. Younger acts could take note of stage presence, precision, etc. I'm a male fan from the Candy Girl days and still like the group.
As a side note, people love spreading their negativity on the Internet – especially when they can hide behind their PCs. They are too scared, or too cool, to fulfill their own ambitions so they terrorize people on the Internet. They are the ones that make this short that much less enjoyable.
To all you Internet "Johnny Rain Clouds", you got to Cool It Now, before you lose control.
I love New Edition!! I bought tickets for their "original" reunion tour.....and New Edition didn't show up, AND I never got my money back- so I will be sitting this one out!!
@chocolateSTAR That was because whoever booked the venue back on the Home Again Tour cancelled it so don't blame the members for the that. Also they were having problems with each other. Only Ricky Bell, Ronnie DeVoe, Ralph Tresvant, & Johnny Gill toured the 2nd half of the Home Again Tour cause Bobby Brown quit after too many fights with the other members. Fist fights with Mike & Ronnie and a big blow up involving guns with their entourages derailed that but it won't be like that now. Plus they will share one tour bus not six separate ones due to members egos
Wow! I can't wait to see them in concert! It's about damn time! I've miss you guys! See you in MS. I'm still in love with you!!
N.E.......thats wuzup...dont worry abouth the haters dawgs...im gonna ride or die witcha....just bring ya asses to norfolk VA............god bless..........
@ Melissa: I agree... nothing but pure hate! They know New Kids on the Black and Backstreet Boys have NEVER show individual talent, break up and then come back. Regardless, NE is selling out concerts across the country! Ask NYC! I'll be at the Greensboro and Charlotte show! Oh.. I'm backstage!
Like seriously why so much hatin goin here!people just hate to see the next doing good no matter what!ummummumm pure evil smh!Big ups to New Edition for still doing your thing
That's what I'm saying Melissa!
Thats what i would like to know, if people dnt have anything good to say they should shut the hell up.... Everybody should be happen to see another progress. New Edition is one off the greatest boy band the world has every and will ever see!
I'm going to see them when they come to Cleveland.. It's good music!
thanks good point
There are not six original members. Gill didn't join the group until years after they after, Brown was already gone. My only question is which ends sooner, the New Edition or the Van Halen tour.
Not me. They seem like anti mormites.
Heh, also surprised these guys are still around, but good for them I guess.
devil music. plain and simple. devil music.
Alert the authorities, iam sure ther are child support or weldfare issues outstanding here. Boyeeeeeeeee
Holy crap New Edition still exists?
Boy do I feel old.
