NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK & BACKSTREET BOYS to Tacoma Dome on Friday, July 8, 2011.

NKOTBSB first shocked and delighted fans when they took the stage together for a medley at the sold out NKOTB Radio City Music Hall show.  The two groups wowed audiences again in their first joint televised performance at this year’s American Music Awards this past weekend.  The performers had the audience on their feet when they unleashed hit after hit including Backstreet’s “I Want It That Way” and NKOTB’s “Hangin’ Tough,” sending the crowd into rip-roaring applause.

“Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block give us boy band fever at the AMAs!” exclaimed Perez Hilton after watching the bands perform their medley mashup of their combined greatest hits live last night.  “We embrace our inner tween!  Loved This!  Boy Band Dreams do come true!!!” he added.

NKOTB and BSB will hit the road on the NKOTBSB tour, produced by Live Nation beginning in the summer of 2011.  Tickets to this historic event are on-sale now with additional dates going on sale beginning December 11, 2010 at 10am EST at Ticketmaster.com.

“We can’t thank our fans enough for their continued support.  The love that everyone has shown to us and to this project is incredible.  We can feel the excitement and we won’t let the fans down.  And with our new and elaborate stage design there won’t be one bad seat in the house,” said NKOTBSB in a joint statement.  “We are truly blessed and are so appreciative to have you all along with us for the ride.”

With over 200 million albums sold between both bands, and smash hit after smash hit, these two pop sensations have dominated the music scene for over three decades.  Aiming to please, these guys are giving concert goers and diehard fans everywhere the ultimate “night out” experience.
