New Kids on the Block Announces Tour With TLC, Nelly
Entitled The Main Event, the band's tour begins May 1 in Las Vegas
New Kids on the Block are hitting the road once again — this time, with TLC and Nelly.
Entitled The Main Event, the summer tour kicks off at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Events Center on May 1. Tickets go on sale Jan. 31, and American Express presale begins Friday.
"We've decided to reform again — not that we've broken up, but we're gonna go back on tour this summer," said Donnie Wahlberg alongside his band members on Good Morning America on Tuesday.
He added that the tour will feature their most elaborate stage to date, complete with "bar seats around the stage so our fans can literally sit right on the stage and converse with us, hang out and heckle us, and we can share their snacks and drinks if we want to." Of this year's tour lineup, Joey McIntyre smiled, "That's a lot of hit records in one night!"
Wahlberg also told TLC's T-Boz and Chilli that the band is donating $10,000 to TLC's Kickstarter fund for their upcoming and final album.
The band's previous reunion tours have seen them pairing with Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men.
