Get ready for a blast from the past, ’90s kids: New Kids on the Block is going on tour this summer — and they’re bringing TLC and Nelly with them.
NKOTB (as the cool kids call them) and TLC were in New York today, and we caught up with them at the GMA studios, where they announced dates for the Main Event Tour featuring Nelly. The U.S. tour launches in Las Vegas in May and wraps in Buffalo, New York, in early July.
The men of New Kids on the Block and the ladies of TLC worked together at the Mixtape Festival in Hershey, Pennsylvania, last year and say “that’s when the ideas started to brew” for a potential collaboration.
TLC also announced that they are funding their final album via Kickstarter; NKOTB has already pledged $10k to get the ball rolling. While we’re pretty jazzed about new TLC jams, we’re also a little bummed that their album will be crowdfunded in lieu of traditional means. What if they don’t hit their goal?
Did somebody say hits? Yes. Hit. After hit. After hit. After hit. After hit. Infinitum.
