The news that every girl that grew up in the 90s has been waiting for... New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys are back! Not only are they back, they’ve also teamed up for a mammoth tour, which will arrive at the LG Arena next April.
The ‘NKOTBSB’ tour will see both bands gracing the stage with some of their best-loved hits including ‘Hangin’ Tough’, ‘Step by Step’ and ‘I Want it That Way’. Already making waves in the USA, the tour has been hailed as ‘one of the hottest tickets of the summer’.
With more than 200 million albums sold between them and numerous smash hits, the two pop sensations have dominated the music scene for more than three decades. Formed in 1984, New Kids On The Block sold more than 80 million albums worldwide, with hits such as ‘I’ll be Lovin’ You’, ‘Tonight’ and ‘Didn’t I (Blow Your Mind This Time)’ guaranteeing their place on teenage girls’ bedroom walls the world over. The group shattered box office records, playing an estimated 200 concerts a year in sold-out stadiums across the globe – and were the highest paid entertainers on 1990, beating megastars such as Michael Jackson and Madonna. The Backstreet boys were formed in 1992 and for more than 18 years they have been giving fans their floor-shaking rhythms, tightly crafted songs and unmistakable harmonies. With record sales of more than 100 million they are one of the most successful bands in music history. Their world-famous hits include ‘Everybody (Backstreet’s Back’), ‘All I Have to Give’ and ‘Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)’.
