Bobby Brown And New Edition Perform At The Tom Joyner Family Reunion

Bobby Brown: He’s Seven Plus Years Off Of Narcotics, 21 Days Sober, And Goes By Bad Azz Bobby Brown Now!

- By Bossip Staff

Bobby Brown performed with New Edition at a sold out concert during the Allstate Tom Joyner Family Reunion gathering that attracted 14,000 people over the weekend. Bobby performed a set that lasted almost two hours with band members Ralph Tresvant, Ronnie DeVoe, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, and Johnny Gill. Bobby appeared to be in good spirits and was greeted wildly by the audience during the opening.

While on stage he told the crowd: “I’m seven and a half years off of narcotics, 21 days clean of alcohol, and I go by the name Bad Azz Bobby Brown!”

Bobby chilled backstage it with Tom Joyner, his son Cassius, and wife Alicia Etheredge (who was treated at a local hospital for a seizure days earlier).

New Edition is celebrating 30 years of performing as a group.
