NKOTB Announces The Total Package Tour With Boyz II Men & Paula Abdul


There are some artists who reigned in ‘yesteryear’ who are either nowhere to be found or all over the place. New Kids On The Block certainly fall in the category of the latter. Despite their last number one hit album or song being in the 1990’s, they still have the juice to not only tour, but tour arenas and sell them out. That says a LOT to their buying and lasting power.

In an announcement made this morning on NBC’s Today Show, the 5 “bros” from Boston have concocted “The Total Package Tour”, which like most of their past tour jaunts, will feature other popular musical artists from their main era of prominence. Joining them for this time will be R&B trio Boyz II Men and Ms. Paula Abdul, someone we haven’t seen on a touring stage in over 25 years.


The last time NKOTB went out on the road was in 2015 for “The Main Event Tour“, which featured TLC and Nelly. “The Total Package Tour” kicks off on May 12th in Columbus, OH, and make its way through over 40 cities in North America, including a special homecoming show in Boston’s legendary Fenway Park. This is the first show the group is performing at the venue in five years.

Tickets for “The Total Package Tour” go on sale Saturday, November 19th at 10 a.m. local time via www.ticketmaster.com. American Express card members and Block Nation Fan-Club Members can get advance VIP Packages and tickets as early as Wednesday, November 16th at 10 a.m. local time.  All tour dates are listed below, so Blockheads, start planning out your tour itinerary!
