The Total Package Tour: NKOTB with Paula Abdul And Boyz II Men



Past Event
New Kids on the Block had a bunch of hits, but fans still haven’t gotten sick of the eternally baby-faced quintet of Boston bad boys. The city known for its rebellious streak served as the place of origin for Jonathan, Jordan, Joey, Danny and Donnie, who after making their big return to the spotlight in 2008 have picked up where they left off. This time, they’ve dubbed their tour The Total Package and have tacked on fellow '90s kid favorites Paula Abdul and Boyz II Men, marking Abdul’s first tour in nearly 30 years. Boyz II Men toured with NKOTB in 2013 as part of The Package Tour, and presumably, swapping out 98 Degrees for the multitalented Abdul was enough to warrant the new name. Between them, the three acts racked up dozens of platinum records during their heyday, and NKOTB’s upcoming EP Thankful is set to release alongside the tour. According to early reviews, this offering seems to be a second wind for the group that had been accused of being behind the times on its 2013 release, 10. Serving as the prototype for the boy bands of the 21st century, NKOTB has a legacy that stretches into today, and frankly, seeing a formerly popular band return as something more than a nostalgic oddity is always a good thing.
