Looks like romance is in the air again. Kicking off that dreaded month of love, Boyz II Men are back-and they're coming to Anaheim, attempting to warm our bitter, bitter hearts with their prescription of R&B monster hits. Since their 1991 breakout song, "Motownphilly," the group has successfully managed to magnetize women with their sticky-sweet tracks (see "On Bended Knee," "I'll Make Love to You," "A Song for Momma") for well more than a decade. Now that the boy-band dynasty is dead and gone, Boyz II Men have returned from their hiatus as a trio, with Michael McCary dropping out due to his bout with scoliosis. Their latest full-length, Hitsville: USA , is a covers album featuring songs from the legendary Motown catalog, but we'll always remember them for those saccharine hits that reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts. Expect to hear a crazed audience swaying their hearts out to "End of the Road" in between renditions of "Mercy Mercy Me" and "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing."
