NKOTB Announce New Album, Will Tour With Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees
Die-hard fans of 80's breakthrough boyband New Kids On The Block will be thrilled to know that their idols are preparing a new album since their 2008 studio set "The Block", their reunion album since the group split up back in 1994. Entitled "10", the album will come out a few months from now on April 2, but as early as January 28, loyal NKOTB followers will already get to hear its first single, "Remix (I Like The)".
To support their new music, NKOTB will go on a 28-city concert tour with equally popular boybands Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees. Branded "The Package Tour", the three groups will kick off their tour at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on May 31 and will continue on the road until July. It marks 98 Degrees' first tour in twelve years, joining the other two phenomenal singing groups who have continuously performed onstage in recent years, despite the emergence of new and younger boybands.
To promote their upcoming team-up, the men appeared Tuesday morning, January 22 on the popular ABC talk show "The View". All members of each group were in attendance. They were NKOTB's quintet of siblings Jordan Knight and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood, Boyz II Men's trio of Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris, and 98 Degrees' quartet of brothers Nick Lachey and Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre, and Jeff Timmons.
The three groups, who have each sold millions of albums worldwide, reached their peak back in the 80's and 90's, paving the way for other vocal groups.
