American R&B vocal group Boyz II Men and singer Brian McKnight are set to entertain their fans in Jakarta on Dec. 8. Slated for the Kasablanka Hall in South Jakarta, the "90’s Soul Ace" concert will be the first time for the R&B icons to share a stage together.

“In the beginning, we just wanted to invite people to experience nostalgia through the '90’s Soul Ace' concert and their enthusiasm was beyond [our] expectations,” Willy Hidayat, the CEO of promoter MyWILL Entertainment, told Antara news agency.

Local R&B band Brown Sugar and singer Raisa are also included in the line-up as opening act and duet performer, respectively.
