No, It’s Not Just Another Teenage Dream: The Ultimate Boy-Band Tour is for REAL
Millennials, rejoice. Grab your 90’s gear and nostalgia out of the closet. New Kids on the Block has announced what’s on tap for this summer, and we couldn’t be more delighted about it. It’s boy-band heavenly.
In just a few months, New Kids on the Block will hit the road again, this time with some extra pop and a dash of soul. 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men will join the guys on “The Package Tour,” scheduled to hit venues around North America this summer.
As far as “the road” goes, “The Package Tour” marks the multi-platinum selling artists’ first tour in over 12 years. 98 Degrees’ last reunion was in the summer of 2012, for a one-off show in Hershey, PA.
“We are really excited to get back on the road together and tour with our friends in NKOTB and Boyz II Men. Looking forward to playing our hits and trying out some of our new tracks too,” said Nick Lachey.
For Boyz II Men, the tour further accents the group’s longevity and extraordinary success. The best-selling R&B group of all time is just as amped: “We couldn’t be more excited to join New Kids on the Block and 98 Degrees on ‘The Package Tour.’ This summer is going to be fun and fans will not want to miss it,” said Shawn Stockman. Wanya Morris agreed saying, “This has been in the works for a while… ‘The Package’ is on its way, and we’re going to deliver.” Added Nate Morris, “We plan on bringing it, mark your calendars.”
And what does NKOTB have to say about all of this?
“Ladies, we’re coming for you,” said Donnie Wahlberg. “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!’”
