New Kids on the Block Teaming Up With TLC and Nelly for New Summer Tour!.

PHILADELPHIA — If you’re looking for “The Right Stuff” this summer, than look no further than the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia as famous boy band New Kids on the Block takes the stage on June 16 for the “Main Event Tour.” Special guests, Grammy Award-winning and multi-platinum selling artists TLC and Nelly will join New Kids on tour. Earlier today, Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight and Danny Wood stopped by Good Morning America to make a special announcement that is sure to send fans of the boy band into a frenzy. “We have decided to reform again—not that we have broken up—but we are gonna go back out on tour this summer, which is great news for our fans because we haven’t toured in the U.S. in a couple of years.

Bandmember Donnie Wahlberg called the tour the “event of the year.” “This is such a great bill and we have so many hit records and such huge followings that we just want to make it the party of the year,” Wahlberg said. Not only will the Boston dudes be performing all their hits and newer, less-cheesy tracks in the round (or “in the square,” as pointed out on GMA) but they’ll have barstools and long tables on the perimeter of the stage for the luckiest of fans.

The news comes after TLC’s announcement of a comeback with the help of Kickstarter as the duo is asking for donations from fans to fund their ‘final’ album. Opening acts are no slouches in the hitmaking department, either: The remaining members of TLC and superstar rapper Nelly will fill out the “Main Event” bill. I’m excited.” (The band toured with Backstreet Boys in 2011 and 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men in 2013.) The initial idea to hit the road together came when both groups performed at the Mixtape Festival in Hershey, Penn., in July 2013. “We all fell in love at that time and that’s when the ideas started to brew,” Thomas explained. “When our manager called us, we were like ‘Hell yeah.’ I think it’s a perfect combination.” Besides the new gig, TLC also has high hopes for what is being billed as their final album.

And so does Nelly.” Tickets for the tour, which starts May 1 in Las Vegas and runs through July 2 in Buffalo, go on sale Jan. 31 through Live Nation.
