New Kids On The Block Issues Star Studded Comeback, Group Celebrates Sold Out Tour

New Kids On The Block are hot again, according to recent reports the group has sold out their North American Tour just ahead of the release of their new album “The Block” due September 2nd. Led by the single “Summertime,” “The Block” features collaborations with some of the biggest names in pop music today. R&B superstar Ne-Yo appears on “Single,” the follow-up to “Summertime.” Other collaborations include “Grown Man” (with The Pussycat Dolls and uber-producer Teddy Riley), “Put It on My Tab” (with Akon), “Big Girl Now” (with NY dance-pop diva Lady GaGa) and the much-buzzed about “Full Service” (with fellow supergroup New Edition). NKOTB will support The Block with a sold-out tour that starts on September 18 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and continues through the end of November. In addition to the tour, VH1 will take an exclusive look at the band on “New Kids On The Block: A Behind The Music Special Event,” premiering on the network September 28th at 8PM (ET/PT). In a first-of-its-kind production, the special will celebrate the history of New Kids On The Block while also documenting their inspired 2008 reunion in their own words. Interspersed throughout the special will be live reports from Boston, counting down until VH1 airs a live broadcast of the first three songs from the world renowned groups sold out concert at TD Banknorth Garden in their hometown of Boston, Massachusetts. Prior to their reunion, New Kids On The Block sold more than 80 million albums worldwide — including back-to-back international #1 songs, 1988’s Hangin’ Tough and 1990’s Step By Step — and a series of crossover smash R&B, pop hits like “You Got It (The Right Stuff),” “Cover Girl,” “Didn’t I (Blow Your Mind This Time),” “Hangin’ Tough,” “I’ll Be Loving You,” “Step By Step” and “Tonight.” In related news, New Kids On The Block releases their greatest hits album today, August 12th. According to Live Daily, “Greatest Hits” features such fan favorites as “Hangin’ Tough,” “Step By Step” and “I’ll Be Loving You (Forever).” – Listen to Single featuring Ne-Yo
