New Kids On the Block Announce Tour With Nelly and TLC
Coming soon to a town near you: the ultimate rush of 80s, 90s and early 2000s nostalgia.
On Good Morning America earlier today, New Kids On the Block announced The Main Event Tour, a 47-date tour across the U.S. alongside hip-hop and R&B acts Nelly and TLC.
Although the summer tour doesn’t start until the May 1st kickoff show in Las Vegas, tickets will go on sale January 31st through Ticketmaster.
“There is no stopping us! We always have something up our sleeves,” said Donnie Wahlberg, who was on-hand for the announcement alongside the rest of NKOTB, including Joey McIntyre (current star of CBS’s The McCarthys), Jordan Knight, Danny Wood, and Jonathan Knight (who is rumored to be on the next season of The Amazing Race with longtime partner Harley Rodriguez).
“Our fans keep asking us to come back out on the road, and we want to keep giving them what they want,” Wahlberg added.
This is also a big tour for their co-headlining acts. Nelly is currently the star of a new, hit BET reality show, Nellyville, so it’s likely this tour will be able to provide plenty of material for the show. As for TLC, this should provide an even larger profile for their Kickstarter campaign, as the group is looking to fund their final album.
In preparation for the big show, an exclusive video was released to PEOPLE, showcasing how the three touring artists are going to mash-up their respective hits for the tour. Get hyped for The Main Event Tour and check out the full video below via PEOPLE:
