I Love the ’90s Tour, Outlaw Field, Aug. 25 

If you miss your MTV—you know, back when it was actual "music television"—Outlaw Field at the Idaho Botanical Garden is about to become a portal to those simpler times when Pepsi was clear, colors were hyper and the bigger the pants, the better.

The good old days return with the I Love the '90s Tour, descending on Boise Thursday, Aug. 25, with an almost unbelievable lineup of the decade's most memorable acts, including: Vanilla Ice, Salt N Pepa with DJ Spinderella, Color Me Badd, Tone Loc, Rob Base and Young MC.

Sure, the neon excesses of the era make for easy latter-day mockery, but between those six aforementioned acts, we're talking about at least 12 American Music Awards wins or nominations, no fewer than nine Grammy nods or wins, and a combined number of records sold that we don't have time or inclination to calculate.

Laugh all you want about rapper pants and flat-top fades, but to alter a phrase from Rob Base, "It takes six to make a thing go right."
