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.

NKOTB/TLC/Nelly are “The Main Event”

Big news was announced today on Good Morning America, that two of the biggest groups of music during the 90s are embarking on a summer tour. The “Main Event” tour will feature New Kids On The Block (NKOTB) along with TLC and rapper Nelly and will travel all over North America. For a few weeks, there had been speculation that this tour was a possibility with a “leak” of a potential tour date that was listed on Ticketmaster’s website, but then shortly taken down.

This tour announcement couldn’t have come at a better time for TLC, who recently revealed that they were working on their 5th and final album to be released this year, so this outing will serve as the promotional push that they need to ensure that this new era is a total success. NKOTB has been famous for doing joint tours with other groups, and they always come out very profitable…we hope that this is another notch on their “winning” belt. Either way, we’re definitely here for this. Ticket pre-sales start on Friday, January 23 on Ticketmaster.com. Check all of the tour dates below.
