The Krush Groove showcase takes its name from the iconic 1985 movie about the early days of hip-hop. The fifth annual event, started by Los Angeles radio station 93.5 KDAY, announced an April 18 concert date at the Save Mart Center in Fresno.
A celebration of old-school rap and hip-hop, the show features some of the genre's heaviest-hitters of the '90s, including Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Method Man and Redman, DJ Quik, Too $hort, Daz and WC, Tha Eastsidaz, Jayo Felony and 2 II None.
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's combination of rapid-fire rhymes and smooth harmonies earned the group a Grammy and helped them sell more than 50 million records.
The Cleveland, Ohio five-piece are no strangers to Fresno, either. The group was part of the West Coast Fest last summer and lobbied to have the tour kick-off in Fresno.
Tickets for Krush Groove are $29.50-$69.50 and go on sale 10 a.m. Friday. They will be available online at the Save Mart Center box office, select Save Mart Supermarkets, online at www.ticketmaster.com and www.livenation.com or by calling (800) 745-3000.
