No, you didn't just listen to way too much ‘90s music before going to bed and have the most awesome dream about all your favorite boy bands from years past on one stage, in one night… This tour is ACTUALLY happening!
Consistent with what seems to be the new trend of bringing back music heartthrobs from years past (Justin Timberlake, The Backstreet Boys…) 98 Degress and BIIM have agreed to tag along with the fellows of NKOTB on their upcoming American Tour.
“Ladies, we're coming for you," NKOTB's Donnie Wahlberg said in a statement relayed by MTV News.
"This is going to be the craziest year yet — the single, the album, the tour with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men ... We can't wait to give fans 'The Package!’”
Nick Lachey added: “We've been so inspired in our career by both of these groups.”
The 12 dudes have dubbed themselves “The Dirty Dozen” and will kick the road trip off on May 31 in Uncasville, Connecticut. The tour wraps up July 13 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
What’s more, because we’re just in the mood of delivering as much awesome news as possible today, NKOTB will be unveiling new music before hitting the road. The group’s new album, 10, hits stands and iTunes on April 2. The album’s first single arrive January 28.
Both 98 Degress and BIIM are said to be working on new material in the studio as well.
