The Package Tour 2013








about new kids on the block


New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys are teaming up for a joint tour, called NKOTBSB!

The two bands will perform beginning in the summer of 2011 - and tickets go on sale later this month on Ticketmaster!

It was also announced today that both groups will hit the stage together on the 2010 American Music Awards on ABC on Sunday, November 21.

New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys on one stage is something special. Moments like these are what the AMAs are all about,” AMA producer Larry Klein said.

After his success with New Edition, producer Maurice Starr decided to replicate the singing group by substituting suburban white kids for the young black teenagers. The result was New Kids on the Block, a pioneering boy band that eclipsed the popularity of Starr's previous group while laying the groundwork for the teen pop boom of the late-'90s. During the New Kids' heyday, the group reportedly earned over one million dollars per week, and their string of hit singles -- the bulk of which reinterpreted R&B-styled street music for a young female audience -- made them one of the era's most successful acts. Following a botched attempt to rough up their clean-cut image with 1994's Face the Music, however, the boys disbanded, only to reconvene 14 years later for a comeback album and supporting tour. 

Various members of the New Kids launched solo careers later in the decade, with Knight scoring a gold-selling record in 1999 and Donnie Wahlberg landing several movie roles. Attempts to reunite the group in the early 2000s proved fruitless; however, the bandmembers surprisingly reconvened in early 2008, announcing their decision to tour in support of a new album. The Block arrived later that year, followed by tour dates in Canada and America. Although critically panned, The Block nevertheless debuted at number two on the Billboard charts and sold 100,000 copies in its first week
