Organizers say the show will feature the band's biggest hits, including the 1991 smash "Motownphilly," as well as some surprises.

Boyz II Men have won four Grammys and hold the title of most successful male R&B group in history. They're best known for their ballads and a cappella stylings, and for the slow jams "I'll Make Love to You" and "One Sweet Day."

They will perform 78 weekend shows through the end of the year. Tickets are on sale now, starting at $40.

"One Sweet Day" listed as one of two songs they're known for?  I listened to a lot of Boyz II Men and I don't know that song.  How about On Bended Knee?  Motown Philly?  End of the Road? It's So Hard To Say Goodbye?  I'm going to look it up now, I don't even know what the hell One Sweet Day is.
