NKOTBSB Reunion Bio / Fun Facts

Get ready for the ultimate boy band tour this summer - New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys are hitting arenas across Canada and the United States to perform their greatest hits in the NKOTBSB Reunion Tour! Learn more about the tour (and the bands!) on Kidzworld!

Onstage Magic

The idea for the tour came when New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys both got up onstage at Radio City Music Hall in New York to perform BSB’s hit song “I Want It That Way”. The crowd went crazy and Twitter and Facebook went rumour crazy about the two boy bands possibly touring together. Brian Litrell from BSB said in an interview about their time onstage, “It was a magical moment, one that we will never forget.” See NKOTB perform "Step by Step" on stage for a sneak peek of what's in store!

Boy Band Reunion Tour!

The bands announced their big summer reunion tour live on air with Ryan Seacrest and rumour has it that the two boy bands might even be recording a song together! Rumours are also flying about whether or not there might be a secret third boy band like Boyz II Men! Donnie Wahlberg from NKOTB has hinted that there will be lots of surprises onstage - maybe Kevin Richardson might come back and sing a tune with BSB? You’ll have to be one of the lucky girls in the crowd to find out firsthand! Watch The Backstreet Boys perform "I Want it That Way" on stage!

The Ultimate Girls Night Out

The NKOTBSB Reunion Tour kicks off this summer in Rosemont, Illinois on May 25th and ends in London, Ontario on Aug 7th. They’ve already had to add 16 new shows because there was so much demand. Tickets sold out fast - sometimes within minutes of being on sale!

Fun Facts

  • The organizers of the tour put it together to try and ignite boy band fever again!
  • New Kids on the Blocks’ original band name was Nynuk. Glad they changed it!
  • The Backstreet Boys got their name from a market where teens used to hang out in Orlando called The Backstreet Market.
  • BSB former band member Kevin Richardson used to work at Disneyland dressed up as Aladdin before they were famous!
