Pop-R&B Stars Boyz II Men Play Two Nights at John Ascuaga’s Nugget

Boyz II MenWith a catalog of hits and chart-toppers rivaling The Beatles and Elvis, Boyz II Men has firmly cemented itself in the upper echelon of music history. Catch Boyz II Men in the intimate Celebrity Showroom, October 22-23, at John Ascuaga’s Nugget.

Based on sales, Boyz II Men is the most successful R&B male vocal group of all time. It recorded five #1 R&B hits between 1992 and 1997 and has sold more than 60 million records. Three of its #1 hits, “End of the Road”, “I’ll Make Love to You”, and “One Sweet Day” (with Mariah Carey), set and broke records for the longest period of time a single remained at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100; the last of them still holds the record. Although “On Bended Knee” did not break any records, it was still an immensely popular song that reached #1 and made Boyz II Men the third artists (behind Elvis and The Beatles) to replace themselves at the number one spot of the Billboard Hot 100. Their early music was indebted to new jack swing, but the group quickly found their forté in lush, soulful ballads, where their harmonies could be showcased to greatest effect.

Boyz II Men plays two nights, October 22-23 in the Celebrity Showroom at 8 p.m. Tickets are just $50 and are available by calling (800) 648-1177 or (775) 356-3300 or by visiting janugget.com. Dinner and show packages are also available.
