NKOTB this week announced two further UK dates, one being the Toon show on May 23.
It follows details of their upcoming European tour, comprising a series of special live dates. Kicking off at the Annex in Stockholm on May 6 and culminating at Clyde Auditorium in Glasgow on June 1, the shows will take place at some of the most intimate venues across Europe, giving fans a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with one of the biggest boy bands of all time.
The award-winning international pop sensations are poised to make a spectacular return to wow their fans with their most intimate tour in 20 years.
Audiences will be treated to performances of some of the band’s most iconic hits, such as You Got It (The Right Stuff), Hangin Tough and Please Don’t Go Girl, taking them on a trip down memory lane, as well as current hits Single and Remix (I Like The), while getting the chance to be closer to the boys than ever before.
Comprised of brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood, New Kids on the Block have sold 80 million albums worldwide and once dominated airwaves with a bevy of hits.
After 15 years out of the spotlight, the 21st century saw the boys from Boston stage one of the biggest and most anticipated reunions ever.
In 2008, they officially revealed their return on The Today Show. Their long-awaited and hotly anticipated return album, The Block, debuted at No 2 on the Billboard Top 200 and the supporting tour reached a cumulative audience of over a million people.
In 2013, the release of their sixth studio album “10” debuted at No 6 on the US Billboard 200, and to mark their continuing success, New Kids on the Block will receive a coveted star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in August this year.
Announcing the European dates, the band said: “We’ve played arenas and stadia all over the world in the last six 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.”
