Kicking off December 14th, the performance will run for four weeks, and will see the chart-topping group perform hits from their massive catalog as well as “some unexpected songs.” “We are thrilled to be doing a holiday show in Las Vegas and be in the famous Flamingo Showroom to share our songs from such a renowned stage,” Nathan Morris of Boyz II Men states. Boyz II Men, best know for hits like “I’ll Make Love To You,” “End Of The Road,” “Water Runs Dry,” and “On Bended Knee,” follows stars like Celine Dion and Toni Braxton for the Vegas run. Group member Shawn Stockman also states that an extended run in Las Vegas has been on their list for sometime, this time however everything came together. “It seemed so right to bring this show to a city steeped in such entertainment history during this special time of year,” says Stockman. “We have always wanted to do a longer run in Las Vegas and all the pieces came together this time to make our dream come true.” Tickets are now available, including VIP Meet ‘n Greet options, via the Flamingo Box office or by visiting Show time is 7:30 p.m. each night and show dates are Dec. 14 – 18, 21 – 24, 26, 28 – 30 and Jan. 1 – 2 and 5 – 9. In other news, a rep for Boyz II Men said that a technical glitch was to blame for one of the group’s songs being played twice during Tuesday night’s NBC Christmas special and that the group not lip-syncing during its performance. NBC’s broadcast of its annual “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” special was presented as a live concert event and included a performance of “This Christmas” by Boyz II Men. When that song concluded, Natalie Morales, an anchor of NBC’s “Today” show and a co-host of the Christmas special, introduced a performance by the pop singer Charice and the composer and pianist David Foster, who were supposed to be singing “Jingle Bell Rock.” Instead, as the cameras cut away to these musicians, the audio of the Boyz II Men rendition of “This Christmas” began to play. In an interview with the New York Times, Jo Mignano, a publicist for Boyz II Men, said the accidental replay of “This Christmas” was the fault of NBC engineers. “Boyz II Men is the best-selling R&B group of the last 20 years,” Ms. Mignano said. “They do not lip-sync.” NBC said in a statement: “During last night’s ‘Christmas in Rockefeller Center’ special on NBC, a production issue caused some background musical tracks to play out of sequence. The musical acts on stage at the time, Boyz II Men and Charice were performing live. The issue was corrected for the West Coast telecast.”
