One of the most anticipated tours is over before it starts! New Edition had announced plans for a reunion tour on the heels of that very successful BET mini-series, but it looks like the NE drama wasn’t just limited to TV.
Group member Michael Bivins posted an ‘explanation’ on Instagram as to why the tour is not happening.
“I know yall need answers on why ish is not going down,” he said in the caption. “I’m on record this morning on behalf of Orchard Park Projects, Boston, Maurice Starr, Candy Girl and all that have participated and worked for this organization.I will do my part and talk and open up communication to get this ish back on track Ralph, Ricky, Ronnie, Bobby, Johnny & Brooke. With love and honor and respect at the table, God can do his work Good am & God Bless Michael L.Bivins #Bivfam and my big brothers.”
According to Boombox the NE drama stems from an on going fight over the New Edition trademark. Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant are the owners of the trademark and are refusing to add other members of the group including Bivins, Ricky Bell, Ronnie DeVoe, and Bobby Brown.
