Listen, I loved NKOTB in 1991 just like every other pre-pubescent girl, but there comes a time when you just have to let go, move on, life your life. Sage advice, perhaps, for boybands in general; but none moreso than New Kids on the Block, whose members seem either incapable or unwilling to pack away the gold lamé vests and non-threatening dance moves for good.
After reuniting to tour with the Backstreet Boys in 2011, NKOTB have announced plans for yet another all-star "reunion," this time with fellow I Love the 90s talking points 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men. The tour, called the Package Tour (this name would've been really funny to us in 1991), kicks off May 31 in Uncasville, CT, with stops in Boston, Nashville, LA, and Las Vegas to name a few.
So what can you expect from Package Tour?
Ladies, we're coming for you," NKOTB's Donnie Wahlberg said in a statement. "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!'
Ladies, they are coming for you with their Package.
(And yes, we will see you in line for tickets.)
