Their dance moves are more shuffles nowadays, their harmonies harNOnies, but New Kids On The Block have enjoyed a surprising amount of success since returning in 2007 – and, buoyed by that, they’ve decided to take all of their pals from American boy band past on tour with them.
That’s right, best start taking your underwear off to throw in advance – maybe buy another pair of underwear too and take them off as well – New Kids On The Block are going on tour with Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees. In fairness to the former, they’ve continued to record way after their commercial heyday of the 90’s, and lest we forget they are the most successful selling R&B group of all time. 98 Degrees though… really!? Not only were they from another generation of boy bands – turning up in the late 90’s as opposed the late 80’s – their chart success was fleeting. Three albums between 1997 and 2000, although we have to hand it to them for seemingly bowing out at the top – a second spot Billboard chart placing for Revelation. However, it’d be far fetched to say anyone had really remembered who they were, never mind miss them.
Nevertheless, they join these other two one-time gargantuans of the music industry for a 28 date tour through the US that kicks off on May 31, 2013 in Connecticut, according to The Los Angeles Times.
