"We are not deviating from the true essence, feel and look of the SCREAM TOUR; we are expanding on it and making it bigger and better than ever. Young people these days do it all. From rapping to singing to dancing, it's all an intricate part of their culture. We wanted to give young people from across the country the best of everything that has become a part of their life and lifestyle, just within a concert and teen dance party setting. What we're giving them with the NEXT GENERATION: PART 2accomplishes that. In actuality, it's not just another show, it's a lifestyle."
