The legendary duo Salt-N-Pepa have announced a residency in Las Vegas – which is the first hip-hop residency to commence in the city.
They announced the news on the talk show The Real, claiming that the shows would take place on the Las Vegas strip and would begin around Labor Day weekend this September. Currently, the group is on the “I Love The 90s” tour, which is hitting select dates across the U.S. A rotating group of musicians like Vanilla Ice, Naughty By Nature, Montell Jordan, and Sir Mix-A-Lot are touring with the group during different dates. Their next stop is this Saturday, May 26 in Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania, and will continue across the country, wrapping up this fall with a show at Oklahoma’s Winstar World Casino and Resort in October.
Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton just reunited with En Vogue at The Billboard Music Awards this past Sunday. Together, the group sang their 1994 platinum hit song “Whatta Man.” The trio was honored for their 30th anniversary of being the first female rap group to steal a spot on Billboard’s Top 40 chart with their hit single “Push It.”
Salnt-N-Pepa, who are best known for ’90s tunes like “Shoop” and “Let’s Talk About Sex,” haven’t released a full-length LP since their 1997 record Brand New. Remixes of “Big Girls” and “Push It” have dropped over the past few years, but there has been no announcement of new music on the horizon as of right now.
Check out the tour dates below and look out for the official scheduled dates of the Salt-N-Pepa Vegas residency, set to begin in September.
