Break out the bandannas and start practising your old-school R&B moves, 'cos those time-tripping throwback parties just keep on coming. We've scored recent visits from Usher, Salt-N-Pepa, Vengaboys and even Aqua – now, get ready for another musical blast from the past, as Bobby Brown, Young MC, Bell Biv DeVoe (Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, and Ronnie DeVoe) and Blu Cantrell head Down Under to deliver a sweet serve of nostalgia.

The Bring That Beat Back tour is the retro music party of your wildest 90s kid dreams, hitting stages in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Auckland this October. And it sees none other than Public Enemy membr Flavor Flav in the role of MC. Headlining this mammoth lineup is a group now known as RBRM (Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky and Mike), featuring four legendary hitmakers from the likes of New Edition, Bell Biv DeVoe and Bobby Brown. They'll be digging into their collective back catalogue to throw down time-honoured gems like 'My Prerogative', 'Every Little Step', 'Poison' and 'Rock Wit'cha'.

Joining them on tour is gospel-driven R&B star Montell Jordan, who you'll know from hit track 'This Is How We Do It', as well as 'Get It On Tonite' and 'Somethin' 4 Da Honeyz'. And we'll hopefully all be belting out renditions of 'Breathe' and 'Hit 'Em Up Style (Oops!)', when singer-songwriter Blu Cantrell hits the stage.

Elsewhere in the lineup you'll be jamming out to nostalgia-heavy tunes from All 4 One ('I Swear', 'I Turn To You' and 'I Can Love You Like That'), and the Grammy Award-winning artist behind 'Bust A Move', Young MC.
