nkotb-nelly-tlcIn case you haven’t had enough concert announcements for the summer of 2015, we’ve got one more for you! 

Ladies get ready the New Kids on the Block are heading back out on the road, this time they are being joined by Nelly and TLC for the Main Event Tour, this will likely shape up to be one of the biggest pop tours of the summer and they currently have an opening on their schedule just in time for RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest…it’s almost safe enough to make a formal prediction that this tour, at least in part (the NKOTB part) will grace one of the stages in Lebreton Flats this summer.

The Main Event will we be hitting 40+ cities across the US and Canada.

“We’re pretty much bringing all the hit songs to you! To make it even better- we have an exciting new stage design, performing 360 degrees in the round. This new production gives you the chance to see us up close and personal and for us to be close to all of our Blockheads.”

For the first time fans will be able to purchase stage-side bar seating in the TOP SHELF VIP PACKAGE which also includes access to THE RINGSIDE EXHIBIT showcasing memorabilia from each of the members’ personal collections over the years.

Block Nation pre-sales begins January 22nd. You must be a Block Nation member in order to participate in the pre-sales. If you’re not already a member, sign up here! All other info can be found at www.nkotb.com.
