Tour Dates Announced For New Kids On The Block/Backstreet Boys

Lest we forget about this awesome tour, I’ve got some tour dates that were announced for the upcoming New Kids On The Block/Backstreet Boys run that you can check out after the jump. First announced by Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, the two groups will play a handful of shows in mid-2011. Tickets go on sale starting next Friday. Here are some statements from the two groups:

“It started when we got together at Radio City Music Hall a few months back.  We wanted to do something big for the crowd in NY.  So we got the Backstreet Boys to come down to Radio City and we put together a performance of ‘I Want It That Way’ in about 5 minutes.  It was electric.  Something happened when they came out on stage.  The crowd went to a place that we never heard it go to before,” said the guys of New Kids on the Block live on air with Ryan Seacrest this morning.  “We started talking, people started talking, and it seemed right.  It’s really just going to be an amazing night of pop music and pop culture.”
“We are blessed.  This is a wonderful opportunity for fans of all— not only New Kids fans, or Backstreet fans, but fans of music.  It’s not about who opens or who closes.  It’s a night of continuous music, hit after hit.  We are going to give people a show to remember.” added the Backstreet Boys.  “We want to make this a night that people will never forget.  We want to give them something to take them to another place that they’ve never been before.”
