New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees, and Boyz II Men Announce ‘The Package’ [POLL]
If you were a teenage girl in the 90’s you may want to sit down for this news. New Kids on the Block announced their tour with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men today on ‘The View!’ The tour is being called ‘The Package.’ The New Kids had previously toured with Backstreet Boys as a super group, NKOTBSB. This time around the three groups will remain as three groups. Although, I would put my money on a grand finale including all three.
Boyz II Men had previously made a guest appearance on the NKOTBSB tour for one night. 98 Degrees had joined NKOTB at the MIxtape Festival this past Summer. I guess they had so much fun that they just had to come back for more.
There had been rumblings of new 98 Degrees music, which the band announced they are working on as well as going on tour. NKOTB also confirmed a new album soon and a new single out next week.
I must admit, I’m not the biggest 98 Degrees fan, I was more of an NSync and Backstreet Boys girl. I wonder if the guys from Backstreet Boys feel like they’ve been cheated on? I mean they went on this tour together and put out an album and then the New Kids just leave them for two new groups?! How rude!
However, I do love Boyz II Men. ‘Motown Philly’ anyone? I think all in all it should be a great show. How could you go wrong? NKOTB have ‘The Right Stuff’ and 98 Degrees will have you saying ‘I Do’ while Boyz II Men are ‘On Bended Knee.’ See what I did there?
Tickets go on sale February 2nd, but there is an Amex Pre-Sale starting January 25th. So head on over to ticketmaster.com to purchase tickets. Don’t wait until the ‘Water Runs Dry.’ It’s not like this is ‘The Hardest Thing’ you will ever have to do. Just follow the ‘Step by Step’ directions and get those tickets before they are gone.
