That low roar you hear is the sound of a million Facebooks posts dropping at the same time. The kids use Snapchat but mom and dad know Facebook is really where it’s at these days.
Today – after a startling week of post-election madness – moms and dads across the nation have awoken with a renewed sense of hope, vitality, and vision for the future. All of their childhood hopes and dreams will be amassed in one amazing tour this summer.
New Kids on the Block, Paula Abdul and Boys II Men have announced a 40 city tour starting in May of 2017.
Thirty years after the debut of their first album, New Kids on the Block have still got the right stuff — and they’re taking it back on tour.
The band announced the Total Package, a massive North American summer tour with special guests Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul, on Tuesday.
While New Kids on the Block have been active on the tour circuit in recent years (they even joined fellow boy banders Backstreet Boys on the road in 2011), Total Package will mark Abdul’s return to the stage as her first tour in 25 years. Boyz II Men previously joined New Kids on the Block for their Package tour in 2013.
“Our fans know we love to bring them a party, and this tour is no exception,” NKOTB member Donnie Wahlberg said in a statement. “It’s not just a show, it’s an experience. Paula Abdul is such a pop icon and Boyz II Men are one of the best R&B acts of all time. It’s going to be a night of hit after hit, and we can’t wait to deliver the ‘Total Package’ to our fans!”
