This is unbelievable. If you don’t have ’90 fever yet, this will break you out in hives.
Our hope is that Chris Welsh can produce a Tech Talk featuring Hammer and fancy-pants dance moves from 1989.
Quick Update: It’s been decided that my goal for the night will be to get this Yo! MTV Raps card signed by the Hammer himself.
CINCINNATI (June 24, 2010) – Legendary hip hop performer and Grammy Award winner MC Hammer will bring his high-energy show to Great American Ball Park on Friday, July 16 as part of the celebration of the 1990 World Series Champion Cincinnati Reds.
Included in the game ticket for Reds vs. Colorado Rockies (7:10pm) will be:
– Two shows by MC Hammer and his dancers
– A tribute to the 1990 World Series Champion Reds
– Members of the 1990 team appearing in person throughout the evening
– Postgame fireworks show presented by Klosterman Baking Company
MC Hammer’s pregame concert will run 6 to 6:40pm on the right field porch and a second show will be on the field starting approximately 20 minutes after the conclusion of the game. He will also do a meet and greet with fans in the FanZone.
Hammer is best known for a series of chart-topping hits in the late ‘80’s and early 90’s including “Too Legit to Quit” and “U Can’t Touch This,” which was Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop #1 single in June of 1990 and the unofficial anthem of the 1990 Reds.
Hammer is a huge baseball fan and served as the batboy for the Oakland A’s from 1972 to 1980.
