Backstreet Boys & New Kids on the Block Touring Together Too?!

Backstreet Boys & New Kids on the Block Touring Together Too?!

Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block are close to signing a deal with Live Nation Entertainment to tour together this Spring, according to E!.

The tour, which is described to be an evening of Expendables-meets-boy-band, is even searching for a third group to join the fun, with Boyz II Men being at the top of the list.

Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block joined the stage together last June at Radio City Music Hall for an impromptu performance of the Backstreet classic, “I Want It That Way.”

The management teams for both groups are even trying to get the boys together to record a single before the start of the tour!

WOULD YOU GO TO a BSB-NKOTB concert in your town?

    I’ve already been to the last 2 BSB concerts and loved them both. And im up for the next BSB concert, so it doesnt really bother me who they tour with, as long as those 4 boys are there singing, im happy :)

    douchfest 2010…look at these old, irrelevant, hasbeen, talentless boy bands making bubble gum pop music…they should really quit already. nostalgia for the earlier days may be a powerful, beautiful thing, but this is like torture

    Those idiots are a lot of things. Talented isn’t one of them.

    You morons really need to broaden your horizons if this is seriously the kind of crap you like.

    Lisa Says:

    I love NKOTB and have seen them many times in the last 2 years. They are awesome! While I don’t mind BSB, I would much prefer to see NKOTB on their own. NKOTB and BSB have differerent fans from different age groups. While BSB’s fans are mostly in their early 20s, NKOTB fans are in their 30s and 40s. While they’re both boybands, this is not the same demographic. I hope that NKOTB headline this show if it happens, but please guys, just tour on your own.

    GreenCAT Says:

    Also, it would be cool if Kevin joined the BSB for this tour! Since all 5 members of NKOTB are touring together.

    NKOTB is a huge part of my teenage years and BSB is great too!
    I would go in a heart beat!

    Bett Says:

    I love NKOTB with all my heart & I will follow them to wherever they want to go but I do not want to share the place with BSB fans .
    NKOTB always has sold out concerts and it makes no sense to just add another band. It’s not our fault that BSB is unable to sell concerts so they need more audience

    I’ve seen both NKOTB and BSB in concert. They are very different but both are GREAT. I will definitely attend the show. :) CANT WAIT!

    Abee Says:

    been a NKOTB fan since I’m 6 :)
    Loved the BSB when they came around (cuz NKOTB were gone? hmmm maybe)
    LOVED the NKOTB show 2yrs ago BUT HATTED the BSB show I saw 2days ago :( So dissapointed! :(

    If I have to compare, NKOTB have more personnality now I’d say,
    more presence on stage, better showman (Having Donnie in the group helps :P Mr entertainer, LOVIN it! :P )
    So I’m not sure if i’d like it…

    Seriously, we know that this in mainly about money for both groups BUT BSB really made me feel like I was JUST bout it…

    Maybe having them on stage with NKOTB could help or could drown them all so im not so sure,
    but it’d be interesting to try n see,

    But i’m a HUGE BsB fan .& it would be freaking awesome if Boyz ll Men also joined , it would be like the best r&b/pop tour ever.

    i’ll go , but i’m afraid of big crowds :/

    Hmm…… I’m a hug huge BSB fan and to be honest I’d rather they do their own concert and album. I think a show with NKOTB is unlikely to come here to Sweden anyway and I just want my BOYS!

    Jessica Says:

    if you don’t like them then don’t listen to them!! you have your tastes, we have ours. don’t bad mouth us because we like BsB. it’s because of fans like us they are still going strong. i don’t care what anyone says, i will always love BsB. i lost a friend because he was making fun of them and i don’t regret it one bit. i don’t need friends like that. i have enough **** in my life then to care what other people have to say about what i like and don’t like.

    joyce Says:

    I think this is the best marketing idea ever. Both groups are extremely talented and creative so I think it would be an amazinf idea. New kids were my first group that I loved when I was 8 and backstreet boys have been my favorite group of all time so I’m excited to see this tour.

  63. 63
    Danielle Says:

    Hell ya I’d go!!! Just saw BSB last week for the 4th time and have seen NKOTB 5 times. (As well as a single concert given by Donnie and a single concert given by Joey). Saving my pennies and counting down the days already!!!

    Allyson Says:

    Ive seen bsb twice! Just saw them this year again and back in 1998.
    Ive never seen NKOTB. I would love to.
    and if both of them came to Raleigh, NC in Concert it would blow my mind!

    SAYSAY743 Says:

    I love Nkotb and I am sure many people have something to say about it. But the fact is those people are on this page right now reading what fans have to say about our boys. So, back to how I feel about the concert: I think that it is hard enough for fans to get tickets to concerts this is just going to make it harder. I LOVE NKOTB and I also love rock, r&b, classical, and 90′s rap. So, there!

    before you say their not talented go check out this vid of bsb singing a capella and then try to say they suck.

    ChocoHoHoe Says:

    *sigh* probably going..Not happy about BSB being there..Not knocking what anyone else likes, I just prefer only NKOTB. Or if BSB has to be there, hopefully they’ll open so I can come later when NKOTB hits the stage.

    PN Says:

    When I saw that on Showbiz Tonight in their newsticker segment, I was excited! Even though they were 10 years apart during their hit making runs, this is a perfect touring package for 2011! I liked New Kids on the Block in their late ’80s peak and Backstreet Boys at their late ’90s peak for their music alone. Not too crazy about the merchandise. And I hope that both groups do a song together–can you just imagine their harmonies blending together in one song? I’m sure that that crowds’ jaws dropped at Radio City Music Hall when both groups sang BSB’s I Want it That Way on the same stage! That might have led someone deciding on that tour!

    Yourgirlelm Says:

    OMFG! This is going to be SOOO amazing! I’ve seen BSB twice, once being last week. They. were. AMAZING!! The ONLY thing that can make this tour better, is if WOW opened for them!! NKOTB were mostly 80′s, BSB were 90′s (both crossed into the next decade) and WOW started in 2009, and is only getting stronger as the year(s) have gone by! They’ve opened for Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Emily Osment, Miley Cyrus, and went to Europe and toured with Westlife for the whole month of May! They are absolutely spectacular! Y’all should check them out at (www. wowthegroup .com) (Take away the spaces)
