Boyz II Men to Vegas for extended gig at the Mirage

Jan 4 (Reuters) - One-time boy band Boyz II Men is

Vegas-bound for an extended stay at the Mirage hotel and casino,

the group said on Friday.

The Grammy-award winning R&B trio will begin performances on

March 1, with 78 shows slated through December 2013.

"We've been dreaming of this day since we performed an

extended holiday show two years ago in Las Vegas," said founding

member Nathan Morris in a statement, adding "we can't wait to

take the stage in March and be a part of the Las Vegas

community."

Formed in 1990 and known for hits including "I'll Make Love

To You" and "End of the Road," the group includes tenors Wanya

Morris and Shawn Stockman, in addition to baritone Morris.

With more than 60 million albums sold, it is reportedly the

best-selling R&B group of all time.
