Andrew McManus Presents is bringing boy-band-supremo New Kids On The Block
down under in August for their 'Full Servic' tour!
As fresh-faced teens in the 1980s, New Kids On The Block shot to world wide superstardom as the first white boy band. They sold 80 million albums, broke teenage hearts everywhere and inspired a whole generation of young boy bands to follow in their footsteps.
NKOTB will be bringing their impressive pedigree of megahits including You Got It (The Right Stuff), I’ll Be Loving You (Forever), Hangin’ Tough
and Step by Step
, along with some fabulous new material from their recently released album The Block.
About the tour, Joey McIntyre said “we’re still young, we’re still hot! Our fans are between 25 and 35 because they were really young then. They’re still very attractive – and very legal. So it’s going to be a girls' night out. It’s going to be fun!”
Having wowed Australian fans here in 1992, local fans have been storming an online petition to get the New Kids back, once news of their reunion broke last year.
While New Kids On The Block love performing their many hits, this isn't a nostalgia tour from a group of once-were-pop-stars - the Kids have simply grown up, re-formed and are making their mark on the music world again with new material that blends the melodic soul of vintage New Kids with a decidedly contemporary, hip hop feel.Brian McFadden
will be joining the boys on tour as a special guest.
Tour dates are as follows:
August 1: Perth, Burswood Arena
August 3: Adelaide, Entertainment Centre
August 4: Melbourne, Rod Laver Arena
August 6: Newcastle, Entertainment Centre
August 8: Brisbane, Entertainment Centre
August 10: Sydney, Acer Arena
