Last year, the New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys combined their boy-band superpowers for the incomparable spectacle that was the NKOTBSB Tour, which saw the guys tearing up stadiums and arenas across the U.S. with tracks like “I Want It That Way,” “Step by Step” and the groups’ joint track, “Don’t Turn Out the Lights.”
The nine guys will once again hit the road this spring, taking their act to Europe and elsewhere for the next leg of the tour. When MTV News caught up with BSB’s Howie D while he was promoting his solo album, Back to Me, he said he hoped the show would stay the same — mostly because he didn’t have much time to start from scratch.
“For the NKOTBSB show, it will be the same show as of right now,” he said. “We haven’t really gotten into re-rehearsals until probably March, so as far as I know, we’re not changing anything. I hope not, because that means I have to learn new choreography, and I don’t have much time to learn new stuff.”
There is some time, however, for other stuff. With tourmate Jordan Knight hitting the road on his own later this month, Howie said he’d “love” to go on a headlining Back to Me trek too.
The NKOTBSB Tour kicks off April 20 in Belfast, Ireland, before wrapping up June 1 in Jakarta, Indonesia. We Americans are hoping that the guys have enough energy to add some American dates to that. Hear us, NKOTBSB?
