Eighties bubblegum will meet nineties pop when Beantowners New Kids on the Block and Orlando’s own The Backstreet Boys hit the stage for an eagerly-anticipated summer tour. On Monday, the iconic boy bands came together to announce the first leg of their North American shows, set to kick off in Canada June 9.
With over 200 million albums sold between both bands, these twinkle-toe pop sensations have dominated the music scene through three decades, but only decided to join forces after BSB joined NKOTB for a harmonious, albeit impromptu, performance at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall last June.
Here’s what we know so far: The NKOTBSB tour, produced by Live Nation, includes confirmed dates in Toronto, New York, New Jersey, Chicago, and Los Angeles with additional dates expected to be announced soon.
