Boyz II Men will be appearing in Las Vegas for a series of shows at the Terry Fator Theatre at The Mirage starting March 1.

The iconic R&B group from the 1990s announced Thursday that they will be taking residency on the Las Vegas strip, much to the delight of their fans.

Organizers are certain the show will be a huge hit and are already promoting the show as a tribute to the band's greatest hits, including the 1991 smash "Motownphilly." They have also promised some surprises.

Boyz II Men are the most successful R&B group of all time, having sold 60 million albums worldwide.

Currently the group is a trio, featuring baritone Nathan Morris alongside tenors Wanya Morris and Shawn Stockman.

In the 1990s, Boyz II Men found fame on Motown Records as a quartet, but original member and bass singer Michael McCary left the group in 2003 due to health issues.

The group's first single to reach Number 1 in 1992, "End of the Road," reached the top of charts across the globe.

"End of the Road" would set a new record for longevity, staying at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 13 weeks, breaking a decades-old record held by Elvis Presley.

As of 2012, "One Sweet Day" still holds the all-time record with 16 weeks at the top of the Hot 100.

Boyz II Men became only the third artist ever - after The Beatles and Elvis Presley - to replace themselves at the top of the Billboard Hot 100.

The band is also among a select group of artists that have held at the number one spot for at least 50 weeks cumulatively, placing them just fourth on that list behind Elvis Presley, The Beatles, and Mariah Carey.

It has been confirmed that the band will perform 78 weekend shows through the end of the year. Tickets have already been put on sale starting at $40.
