The Philadelphia 76ers' halftime concert series kicks off this week with a focus on throwback stars.
Bell Biv DeVoe will kick off the four-part concert series on Friday with a performance of their hit "Poison," at halftime for the evening's game against the Orlando Magic. The Sugarhill Gang, meanwhile, will perform "Rapper's Delight" and "Apache (Jump On It)" on January 20 at that day's game against the Portland Trailblazers.
Last season's halftime lineup featured performances from Naughty By Nature, Montell Jordan, Cupid, and Tag Team.
The announcement of this season's halftime performers comes following the rescheduling of Sevyn Streeter's performance of the National Anthem at a Sixers game, which was initially scheduled for Oct. 26.
Sixers management canceled the performance last minute over Streeter's "We Matter" Jersey, but later rescheduled the performance for Dec. 16, when the Sixers host the Lakers.
