Nostalgia isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be: Go to an arena package show like the “I Heart the ‘90s” tour, and it can be like watching VH-1 through a backward periscope, except sadder. There’s nothing quite like a bird’s-eye view of nearly forgotten acts performing a couple of hits and then making room for the next act. A better alternative is to forgo the cavernous venues and see a full set by artists with the talent and catalog to be able to go it alone. In the case of En Vogue, you can count on a string of infectious ‘90s hits that include the No. 1 R&B singles “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It),” “Hold On,” “Lies,” “You Don’t Have to Worry” and “Giving Him Something He Can Feel,” all of which crossed over into the pop charts, as did their “Whatta Man” hit with Salt-N-Pepa. Even if you don’t recognize the titles, you’ll likely remember the songs well enough to be singing along by mid-chorus.
