Paula Abdul is on tour!

Yes you read that right!
Paula Abdul is on tour. I know - I can't believe it either! It's been 25 years since she last toured. Needless to say, I am really excited.
The tour is simply called "The Total Package Tour" and it's a co-headlining tour featuring the New Kids on the Block, Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul.
In August of 2016 Paula announced she would be touring during her final performance at The Mixtape Festival concert in Hershey, PA. The Mixtape performance marked Paula's big return to the concert stage. Her last major concert event was 1993's Under My Spell Tour which saw Paula travel worldwide to promote her "Spellbound" album.
In recent years Paula has only performed one-off sets for fans, including a rendition of "I'm Just Here For The Music" on American Idol in 2009 and a medley of her hits for Dancing with the Stars in 2012.
The tour kicked off in Columbus, Ohio on May 12th 2017. The show incorporated new visuals, including a new opening intro including few of the same from Paula’s performance from the Mixtape Festival. She performed fan favorites such as "Straight Up," "Opposites Attract," "(It's Just) The Way That You Love Me," "Cold Hearted (Snake)," and "Forever Your Girl."
If you haven't done so already - get your tickets. Paula and co will be in Portland, OR on June 6th. It's sure to be a night to remember!
