New Kids on the Block announce Manchester Apollo gig
The American boyband will head to Manchester in May as part of their European tour
American boyband New Kids on the Block are to play a date at Manchester Apollo.
The Boston fivepiece – Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, and Danny Wood – head to Manchester on May 30.
The Hang Tough singers enjoyed huge success in the late 80s/early 90s before going their separate ways to complete solo projects for a number of years.
They reformed a few years ago and enjoyed joint headline tour (NKOTBSB Tour) with fellow boyband the Backstreet Boys in 2011/12.
The gig is a chance for fans to get up close and personal with their idols, with the tour called An Intimate Evening With New Kids on the Block.
The band said: “We’ve played arenas, and stadiums, all over the world in the last 6 years.
“Yet, some of our best concerts have been in the most intimate of venues, where we are closer to our amazing fans.
“This tour gives us a chance to have that intimacy with our fans again. To get up close and intimate with the best fans in the world”.
