Veteran singer Paula Abdul is returning to the concert stage to headline the 2016 Mixtape Festival.
The Opposites Attract star hasn't performed a full set for fans in years, but that will all change on 6 August (16) when she takes centre stage at the Hersheypark Stadium event in Pennsylvania.
Paula won't be the only blast from the past on the Mixtape Festival bill - she will be joined by fellow pop veterans New Kids on the Block, Boyz II Men, 98 Degrees and O-Town. Girl group Dream is also reuniting for the bash for its first show since 2001.
Celebrating the news on Twitter.com, the 53-year-old exclaimed, "This is SO happening! I'm so excited for the @MixtapeFestival".
Meanwhile, the New Kids On the Block stars are also looking forward to returning to the summer festival.
"Mixtape has become an annual summer tradition for us, and for so many pop music fans," they state. "We can't wait to be back on the Hersheypark stage for the fourth year. We've got a great show in store."
Paula has only performed short one-off sets for fans in recent years, including a rendition of I'm Just Here for the Music on American Idol in 2009, and a medley of her hits for Dancing With the Stars in 2012.
