If you’ve read my book or followed TMSM for any amount of time, then you know I’m a huge fan of NKOTB and have been since I was a kid.  In 2015, we were able to see the band at the Amway Center in Orlando and actually meet them. Dream come true! We received the press release from the Amway that another tour is coming to town next Summer! My inner teenager is already screaming! Here’s the scoop!

Today, New Kids On The Block (NKOTB), the multi-platinum selling pop super-group, unveiled an epic lineup for their highly anticipated 2019 tour. NKOTB took to the Today Show plaza to reveal The MixTape Tour with very special guests NKOTB, Salt-N-Pepa, Naughty by Nature, Tiffany and Debbie Gibson. Produced by Live Nation, the five iconic pop and hip-hop acts hit the road together for the first time ever on a 53-city tour across North America next summer beginning in Cincinnati, OH and conclude their extensive trek in Hollywood, FL on July 14. The MixTape Tour visits Orlando’s Amway Center on Saturday, July 13, 2019. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, October 12 at 10 a.m.

American Express® Card Members may purchase pre-sale tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday, October 9 at 10 a.m. EST through Thursday, October 11 at 10 p.m. EST.

To celebrate the event, NKOTB surprised fans by dropping a catchy, throwback track, “80s Baby,” featuring their new touring partners, guests NKOTB, Salt-N-Pepa, Naughty by Nature, Tiffany andDebbie Gibson. The track takes listeners on a nostalgic, yet refreshingly modern and fun, ride through 80s song references and fresh verses — just a small glimpse into the party that will be The MixTape Tour. Stream the song HERE.

With over 100 million combined records sold worldwide, NKOTB, Salt-N-Pepa, Naughty by Nature, Tiffany and Debbie Gibson will fill arenas with hit after hit when they take to the stage next summer.  Always upping the ante, NKOTB have packaged the ultimate lineup for a once-in-a-lifetime live show experience. The group returns to the stage after 2018’s touring hiatus to perform fan favorite number one hits like, “Hangin’ Tough,” “I’ll Be Loving You (Forever),” and “Step By Step.”  When tour mates Salt-N-Pepa, Naughty by Nature, Tiffany and Debbie Gibson hit the stage, they bring with them top-chart hits and legendary catalogues bringing fans to their feet all night long. The tour is sure to be one of the can’t miss events of the summer featuring an unforgettable night full of smashes spanning across generations.

NKOTB made the announcement on the heels of their sold-out Apollo Theater show celebrating the 30th anniversary of their hit-packed, breakout album, “Hangin’ Tough.”  The special one-night-only engagement sold out within minutes of the on sale and saw NKOTB gracing Harlem’s famed Apollo stage for the first time since they debuted, “Please Don’t Go Girl,” at the Apollo’s notoriously tough amateur night.  The career defining album, “Hangin’ Tough,” produced hits like, “Please Don’t Go Girl,” “You Got It (The Right Stuff),” “I’ll Be Loving You (Forever),” and “Cover Girl.”  The crowd erupted when the band confirmed on stage that “Hangin’ Tough” will get a special anniversary re-issue in early 2019 with new, never-been-released music.
