Fresh off the release of their new album Collide, Boyz II Men return to Raleigh for a one-night only event Wednesday, June 24, at 7:30 p.m., with Resident Conductor William Henry Curry and the North Carolina Symphony. The concert will take place in Meymandi Concert Hall.

Boyz II Men remains one of the most truly iconic R&B groups in music history. The group redefined popular R&B and continues to create timeless hits that appeal to fans across all generations. The band has penned and performed some of the most celebrated classics of the past two decades. The group’s 4 Grammy Awards are just the tip of the iceberg: throughout their 20-year career, Boyz II Men have also won 9 American Music Awards, 9 Soul Train Awards, 3 Billboard Awards, and a 2011 MOBO Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. Made up of Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris, and Shawn Stockman, members of Boyz II Men met as students at the prestigious Philadelphia High School for Creative and Performing Arts.

“Boyz II Men brings swooning tunes, stunning voices,” wrote The Dallas News. “Dressed in black slacks, white shirts, black vests and ties, the Boyz oozed gentlemanly class. Couple that with wooing tunes such as ‘On Bended Knee,’ ‘Water Runs Dry,’ ‘I’ll Make Love to You’ and ‘End of the Road’ — all of which got the ladies swooning — and you have the perfect recipe for a modern-day courtship even Mama would approve of.”

Although Boyz II Men continues to tour across the country and around the globe, performing a mix of their latest tracks and treasured classics, the group currently has a residency at famed Las Vegas venue The Mirage through 2015. Boyz II Men have made R&B accessible to the masses and have helped the genre come into its own — and fans throughout the world flock to see them perform at sold out shows. They were just honored in Las Vegas at the Casino Entertainment Awards where they were presented with the Musical Artist of the Year Award beating out Britney Spears and Guns N’ Roses.

Tickets to “Boyz II Men” range from $48 to $99. For more information, go to the North Carolina Symphony’s website at, or call 919.733.2750 or toll free 877.627.6724.
