Thirty years after the debut of their first album, New Kids on the Block have decided to go on one last limited-run tour, and they’ve picked Charlotte as one of their major stops.
They’ll also be bringing along Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul for the ultimate trip down memory lane.
This will be Paula Abdul’s first tour in over 25 years. Boyz II Men previously joined New Kids on the Block for their Package tour in 2013.
“Our fans know we love to bring them a party, and this tour is no exception,” NKOTB member Donnie Wahlberg said in a statement. “It’s not just a show, it’s an experience. Paula Abdul is such a pop icon and Boyz II Men are one of the best R&B acts of all time. It’s going to be a night of hit after hit, and we can’t wait to deliver the ‘Total Package’ to our fans!”
All together, the three bands have sold over 200 million records worldwide, and Boyz II Men remain the best-selling R&B group of all time. Abdul halted her music career in recent years to appear as an actress and television personality, but not before she logged an incredible seven No. 1 hit singles in the late ’80s and early ’90s, including “Straight Up” and “Opposites Attract.”
The groups will be playing at Charlotte’s Spectrum Center on July 13th starting at 7:30pm.
