Are you ready to Bust a Move? Well if you’re eager to dance to you favorite 80’s and 90’s hits. Plan to hit Hammer House Party this Friday. Hip-hop sensation MC Hammer will bring his legendary Hammer House Party to D.C.’s new, state-of-the-art venue Entertainment and Sports Arena with special guests Sir Mix-A-Lot, Kid ‘N Play, Tone Loc, DJ Kool and more. Tickets to see the show start at $50 and are on sale on Ticketmaster.com courtesy of Events DC.
Embarking on his first major tour since 1991, MC Hammer is bringing together some of the most recognizable Hip-Hop and R&B acts from the ’80s and ’90s to one stage for one night only. Even D.C. local DJ Kool created a video announcing the concert backstage at the arena.
Hammer’s House Party is the latest iconic package tour created by Universal Attractions Agency in partnership with MC Hammer. With Hammer being largely off the touring scene and deeply involved in tech, philanthropy, and prison reform (The Last Mile) over the last decade, he decided it was time to give his fans what they wanted – a proper tour. Hammer says of UAA’s co-owner Jeff Epstein, “When Jeff pitched the idea to me for Hammers House Party, I loved the concept and the potential lineups and we collectively hit the ground running.. it’s Hammertime”. “Hammer continues to be one of our top clients, and he’s one of the hardest working and most giving people I know,” says Epstein, “The demand for him as a performer has actually increased while he’s been off the touring circuit. He truly is 2 legit to quit!
The show has been on the road since the beginning of the year. While Hammer has played every venue along the tour, many of the other performers have been rotating in and out. Some of the previous acts have included En Vogue, Sisqo, Doug E Fresh and Coolio to name a few. Other future tour dates include:
SEP 1 Golden Nugget – Lake Charles – Lake Charles, LA
SEP 12 Ilani Cowlitz Ballroom – Ridgefield, WA
SEP 14 Los Angeles County Fair – Pomona, CA
OCT 19 Treasure Island Resort & Casino – Welch, MN
