2 Live Crew Tickets
Get Ready to Move with 2 Live Crew Tickets
Raw, rowdy and unmistakably fun, Miami's 2 Live Crew is one of the pioneering acts that helped shape modern hip-hop. With their fresh, funky and bawdy sounds, 2 Live Crew helped to bring the genre into the mainstream with a string of acclaimed and successful albums and singles throughout the late 1980s and 1990s. Today, they're still as fresh and as happening as ever before - as any fans who pick up 2 Live Crew tickets will be able to attest.
If you've been looking for 2 Live Crew tickets, you might be in luck, since they're expected to be touring again soon in the US. Recently, they've played at venues like the Dixie Roadhouse in Fort Myers, Florida and The Riot Room in Kansas City, Missouri.
Don't get grooving to the raw sounds of 2 Live Crew without knowing a bit more about the band you're going to get ready to see. First, Luther Campbell's original record name was "Luke Skyywalker Records" - the name had to be changed after a lawsuit from George Lucas of Star Wars fame. Second, the song "Me So Horny" grabs its signature title from a line in the Stanley Kubrick Vietnam war movie Full Metal Jacket. Finally, Luther Campbell, a devoted University of Miami Hurricanes fan, was interviewed for The U, the ESPN documentary on the university's storied football program.
The members of 2 Live Crew came out of South Florida as rap scene veterans. First sparked by DJ Mr. Mixx, the original trio - Mixx, along with Fresh Kid Ice and Amazing Vee - made a name for themselves with the locally-popular single "Revelation." Miami rapper and producer Luther Campbell inked the band and installed himself as the lead singer. The group then went into the studio to record their first record, The 2 Live Crew is What We Are.
The 2 Live Crew is What We Are turned out to be an immediate smash. Bolstered by plenty of bawdy lyrics, the band quickly earned a cult following and the album was a certified gold hit. Two years later, their follow-up album Move Somethin' was another smash record, charting on the Billboard Top 200 and producing two hit singles.
The band followed up Move Somethin' with the explicit hit record As Nasty As They Wanna Be. With the radio-friendly hit song "Me So Horny" as the lead single, As Nasty As They Wanna Be sold two million copies and went all the way up to #3 on the Hip Hop / R&B records chart. Next out was the politically-charged alum Banned in the U.S.A., a take off of the name of the Springsteen record Born in the U.S.A. The band continued to record and tour throughout the 1990s, releasing a sequel to As Nasty As They Wanna Be in 1991, The Original 2 Live Crew in 1995 and The Real One in 1998. Over their storied career, 2 Live Crew has released some of the raunchiest, most fun albums in the history of the rap genre.
Those with 2 Live Crew tickets will experience a live show a lot like the band itself - it's sweaty, profane and extremely fun. There's plenty of high-powered grooving and shaking to the 2 Live Crew's famed live act.
