CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Grammy award winner MC Hammer will perform at the Reds game as a part of the 1990 World Series Championship celebration.

The Reds face off the Colorado Rockies on July 16. Fans who show up to the game will also see two shows by MC Hammer and his dancers, a tribute to the 1990 World Series Reds, members of the 1990 team appearing in person throughout the evening, and a postgame fireworks show presented by Klosterman Baking Company.

The MC Hammer pregame concert will start at 6:00pm and the postgame show will begin 20 minutes after the game. He will also meet and greet with fans in the FanZone.

Hammer is best known for his chart topping hits, "Too Legit to Quit" and "U Can't Touch This", which became the unofficial anthem of the 1990 Reds.
