New Kids on the Block members announced that they would be headlining "The Package" tour with opening acts Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees on Jan. 22 during an appearance on "The View." The tour kicks off at Mohegan Sun Arena on May 31 and comes to Boston's TD Garden on June 2.
The three boy bands visited the morning talk show together and even performed a bit of a capella after taking questions from host Sheri Shepard, who donned an "I Love Donnie" t-shirt for the show.
NKOTB dropped another bomb while "taking over" "The View": the Boston-based boy band will release its first new album in four years on April 18, titled "10." The CD's first single, "Remix (I Like The)," will be available on iTunes, Jan. 28.
Boyz II Men has toured in recent years, but this will be the first tour for 98 Degrees in 12 years, and Nick Lachey said that he planned to bring his 4-month-old son Camden with him on tour.
Fans can purchase tickets via Ticketmaster on Feb. 2. American Express card members can purchase advance tickets beginning this Friday, Jan. 25.
