The Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block/NKOTB are planning to tour together in 2011? This combination of forces can only be explained by boy banders who grow up, have kids (some of them, anyway) and try to make money doing concert tours again.
We kid though, because really, it makes a whole lot of sense to get them teamed up together to appeal to two separate generations. It’s marketing genius, really.
A source commented on The Backstreet Boys/NKOTB combo tour, saying,”The idea is to recreate the boy band phenomenon. It will be the ultimate ladies’ night out.”
If the two groups sign the deal with Live Nation Entertainment (and they are close, say reports), look for The Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block to begin touring together as early as March 2011.
Okay, no one’s looking and/or judging – were you a NKOTB or Backstreet Boys fan? Would you see the two of them on tour together?
This should, in theory, be a hit idea, given how well-received the Backstreet Boys/New Kids singing “I Want It That Way” at Radio City Music Hall was in June.
