Backstreet Boys, New Kids on the Block Concert Tour 2011 Together!

By WendyM |

Backstreet Boys, New Kids on the Block Concert Tour 2011The 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.

  12. Dana says:

    I was a huge NKOTB fan in elementary school, then BSB came out when I was in High School and I totally loved them. Saw them in concert about 6 times. BUT… Times have changed and I think there is something wierd about 40 year old men who are married with children who are still living out their teenage dreams. I am still on the fence about going to see this concert.

  13. Britt says:

    I am very excited about this tour and would do anything to go. BSB came to town today with Mixfest!! They blow everyone away and I wouldn’t expect any less. :0)

  14. Abby says:

    Do I really have to listen to the talentless NKOTB. Really? Blah. I guess its a sacrifice for BSB. So who would play first. Just want to know if I should arrive late or leave early.

  15. Bridget says:

    I am a huge NKOTB fan I have seen them 3 times in concert and just went to see Backstreet last weekend so I WILL FOR SURE BE PURCHASING TICKETS FOR THIS CONCERT AND TAKING MY SISTER WITH ME :)

  16. shannon says:

    That would be an awesome concert. For all the people slamming one group or the other,grow up. If you can`t support both bands just stay home!

  17. hosein says:

    hi backstreetboys

  18. Amy says:

    I think it would be awesome if NSYNC was on this tour too. It would be out of control.

  19. Jess says:

    I’m with Amy on prayers have been’s like a dream come true. As soon as I hear dates I’m clearing my schedule.

  20. Mrs. Donnie Wahlberg says:

    HOLY BOY BAND HEAVEN!, Thats what myself along with millions of other fans, will be in “ABSOLUTE HEAVEN” IF THIS HAPPENS! & I’ve seen NKOTB 20 times in concert & met them twice. Backstreet Boys 6 times in concert, along with N’SYNC 12 times. I Have always tried to find another NKOTB over the years. I’ve been a faithful concert fanatic since I saw WHAM in Sept (85) at the Oakland A’s stadium. Can’t even begin to say how many artists I’ve seen or met along the way. I can say N’SYNC nailed it everytime. BSB nailed it with their Millennium concert tour. No other band since WHAM (you had to be there)Has ever come close to the energy/excitement other than thoose mentioned, of NKOTB. You need to go on the Cruise’s every year to understand the wonderful maddness & love of the fans with the guys.

  21. Ana says:

    Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessss baby, bring it on!!!!!

  22. Tanya Casey says:

    Bring on NKOTB and BSB I am ready to drool for the night!!!! I have been inlove NKOTB since they came out over 20 years ago!!!! As long as they keep touring I will keep on going to see them!!!! NKOTB forever!!!

  23. Jill Merano says:

    NKOTB went big at the music when I was a kid, BSB came when I was in college. I both love them, and I am so gonna watch them….it’s absolute heaven

  24. Valerie says:

    I hate NKOTB growing up but my roommate dragged me to one of their concerts. Holy cow! So so good. I was an instant fan. I totally thought it was going to be pathetic, but it totally wasn’t. So, don’t knock it til you’ve seen it. NKOTB still has the ability to make you feel like the only girl in an arena full of screaming fans.

  25. Valerie says:

    I hated* NKOTB growing up.

    Also, she took me to one of their new concerts. I really need to read over my comments before I post.

  26. Debbie says:

    I have been the biggest fan of New Kids. Growing up I had my bedroom totally done up in them. I love the band and I would definetly go to a concert. I love them all but Donnie is my all time favorite him and his holy Jeans :)

  27. Elham says:

    I have been a fan of NKOTB since I was in the 7th grade. I WILL BE THERE!!!
