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!
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!
