Three groups from the ’80s and ’90s are teaming up for a big summer tour.
New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men will head out on the road together beginning late May for what is being dubbed “The Package” tour, it was announced Tuesday morning on The View.
New Kids on the Block also announced a new album, 10, out April 2 — the band’s first in four years — and unveiled a new single, “Remix (I Like The),” which will be released Jan. 28.
New Kids, along with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men, also performed a cappella on the ABC morning talk show. According to People, 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men will open on all dates.
“Ladies, we’re coming for you,” said New Kids on the Block’s Donnie Wahlberg, who also stars in CBS’ Blue Bloods. “This is going to be the craziest year yet — the single, the album, the tour with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men. … We can’t wait to give fans ‘The Package!’”
The 30-plus summer trek marks the first tour for 98 Degrees in more than a decade. Two years ago, New Kids had a joint headlining tour with the Backstreet Boys, titled NKOTBSB Tour.
The Package Tour kicks off May 31 in Connecticut and goes through mid-July. The groups will stop by Los Angeles’ Staples Center on July 5.
