Color Me Badd broke up in 1998 before reuniting in 2010, with various lineups since.

Best known for their singles "I Wanna Sex You Up", "I Adore Mi Amor" and "All 4 Love", the group has sold over 12 million records worldwide,[1] had two number 1 hit singles, nine Top 40 hits and a triple-platinum album.

A founding member, Mark Calderon, the only original member now leading the group out on tour says “I’ve never been more excited to get out on the road and share the highest energy show in Color Me Badd history. We want the fans to have the ultimate experience. The team and I have worked hard to make sure we leave you with the best night of your life when you come see us live and we’re hopeful you’ll enjoy re-living these songs with us!”
