Following the success of last year's The Culture Tour, one of the preeminent boy bands of the '80s is ready to hit the road again for another reunion — and it's bringing some very special friends along with it.

New Edition is launching its Legacy Tour in 2023. The 30-date engagement is scheduled to begin on March 9 and run through April 30.

In addition to the group, which will feature all six of the original members, the tour will serve as a reunion for prominent New Jack Swing era acts.

Guy, featuring its original lineup of Teddy Riley, Aaron Hall, and Damion Hall, along with R&B crooners Keith Sweat and Tank, round out the performers.

“Few recording artists can attest to a superior 40-year career that stands the test of time, but New Edition can,” said Black Promoters Collective CEO Gary Guidry in a statement. "When we partnered with NE for “The Culture” tour, although I knew it would be stellar, their show exceeded my expectations, the guys were nothing short of miraculous. We are excited about partnering with New Edition to further the legacy of the foundation they have already laid.”

With their founding inspired by the Jackson Five, since dropping their debut album "Candy Girl" in 1983, the Boston-bred group has sold nearly eight million albums worldwide. Several group members have enjoyed successful solo careers, including breakout star Bobby Brown, along with Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant.

The group's remaining members formed the multi-platinum hip-hop act Bel Biv DeVoe in 1989.

In 2022 New Edition was inducted into the Black Music & Entertainment Walk of Fame.
