It's Happening! Boy Band Dream Tour, NKOTB and BSB Touring Together!

| Filed under: Music MinuteNew Kids On The Block


Two groups of has-beens combined! Together, does that make them relevant?

Nope! But we still think this is a pretty sweet idea!

The Backstreet Boys are reportedly in negotiations to go on tour in 2011 with New Kids On The Block!

A source, which suggests the former heartthrobs will be hitting the road together as early as next March, explains:

"The idea is to recreate the boy band phenomenon. It will be the ultimate ladies' night out."

Live Nation is currently searching for a third boy band, and apparently Boyz II Men is being seriously considered!

Amazing! And even if they don't agree, think about all of the boy bands they could salvage out of irrelevancy!

We imagine this tour has the potential to do mildly well, if even for the nostalgic value!

What do U think?? Would U like to see the ghosts of boybands past reunite for a tour??

    Mario, you are a twisted, twisted, grown man.

  2. 2

    Alone they're probably not able to attract enough fans for concerts - but together with two other bands who knows?
    But Boyz II Men? Boyz II Men got real talents unlike NKOTB and TBB. BIIM are way above their league.

  3. 3

    Make it Backstreet Boys, NKOTB and NSYNC. :)

  4. 4

    Backstreet Boys tour was amazing this year , not sure about the idea but definitely will attend.. and the third band should be NSYNC !

  5. 5

    This would be way cooler if it were NSYNC instead of the BSB!!!!!!

  6. 6

    I'd pay out the ass to see this. I'd be fronting if I didnt admit it haha!

  7. 7

    Am i the only one who wants LFO back? I think not!

  8. 8

    So this made my morning

  9. 9

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! NKOTB doesn't need BSB. Besides, BSB used to hate being compared to NKOTB, especially the ugly one that isn't with them anymore.

  10. 10

    It would only be worth watching if they sang the original songs which made them famous and I don't see that happening.

  11. 11

    I think it sounds like so much fun!! lol I grew up listening to these groups! I think it would be a blast to see them both in concert again! In face NKOTB was the first concert I ever went to!

  12. 12

    Pffft. This is not a "Boy Brand Dream Tour" until *NSYNC joins them!!!

  13. 13


  14. 14

    A lot of people here are negating the real talent that BSB has. They never broke up, they've been putting out albums and selling out tours all these years. Their latest album just came out in October. I don't know about NKOTB, but BSB still sells out nearly every show they play, so that line about them not being able to attract enough fans for concerts was dead wrong. Hell, they're in the middle of a world tour as we speak! If they couldn't sell out concerts they sure as hell wouldn't be doing another world tour.

    UGH! I will LOVE to see BSB and BoyzIImen together….but NKOTB? That's another generation and no thanks! BoyzIImen is another generation too but at leats the BSB do harmonies as well so I thinbk BSB and BoyzIImen is a better idea and less cheesy (IDK if NKOTB do harmonis- bet not- but I'm sure their not as good as BSB's and will never be close to Boyz II men)….NKOTB NOOOO !!! yuck

  16. VGirl says – reply to this


    proof BSB should be with Boyz II men and NOT NKOTB
    Look it up in youtube: Backstreet boys 2000 Grammys performance!!!

  17. 17

    BSB doesn't need NKOTB to sell tickets … but if Boys II men go that will be more amazing …

  18. 18

    GHOST?? NKOTB HAD been gone forever and out of the map for a while and really came back in the past couple years and all.. But BSB have NEVER been gone thus the title of one of their latest albums: "Never Gone"! They juste came to my city in Montreal and filled out a 11 500 stadium (Bell Centre) full of screaming fans that never left and also new and young ones that couldn't have possibly liked them back in the nineties since they must've not even been born or like 2 years old!! Their following is still HUGE!! Everyone just thinks they are irrelevant and out of it because they don't get as uch radio play anymore since it seems more interesting to have Cyrus and Bieber out there and the BSB are "old" and married with kids!

  19. 19

    Their music has evolved a lot through their SEVENTEEN years of career and their pop style is as relevant as anything those teen bop pop stars are doing right now! NO band, not N'Sync, not NKOTB, no one honestly since like the Beatles (as a boys band sensation) has kept WORLDWIDE recognition and following for THAT long! The street in the back of Bell Centre on Monday was blocked by all the fans waiting for them to get out! Same at a Parasuco store they went shopping to during the same day!

    Please watch it when using the word relevancy… A little research wouldn't have killed. It's not like it's not all documented on the internet and you could've found that out within minutes.. with all the reviews of their CURRENT tour! This is US


  20. 20

    Re: Revolennon – AMEN!!!!!

  21. 21

    Re: Obnoxious_Joe – I just went to BSB show (WORLD TOUR) on Monday and they sold out the Bell Centre 11 500 seats!! and its not TBB but BSB - and have you never heard BSB sing acapella?? Ever wonder why they are in their 17th year of career still touring the world and NOT B2M??? Fact check your shit please! A TRUE BSB fan…

  22. 22

    Oh my God! I so wanna go to this concert in case it is truth. I hope it is and I hope that they come to Europe… I was a fan of both of the groups when I was a teenager and I would love to see them in tour together!!!

  23. 23

    ok for those of you who keep saying "im not sure if NKOTB can sell out a tour" WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN THE LAST 2 YEARS! they have successfully made a comeback from a 14 year break, to 3 world tours in 2 years, plus boat cruises… needless to say, every show was sold out. They have NO trouble, their fanbase is SOLID

  24. 24

    I would really like to see Boys II men more then anything!

  25. 25

    Re: nkotb4lifebitches – Same with BSB but they never stopped! They did a sold out cruise too!

  26. 26

    i think i just had a orgasm.

  27. 27

    "Alone they're probably not able to attract enough fans for concerts - but together with two other bands who knows?
    But Boyz II Men? Boyz II Men got real talents unlike NKOTB and TBB. BIIM are way above their league."

    you sir are an idiot. BSB are currently on a world tour and have been selling out concert arenas all over– Played for over 11000 in toronto and 11500 in montreal just this past week
    they don't need NKOTB

  28. 28

    Why isn't your boy band, PMLB (Perez Molests Little Boys), touring with them?

  29. 29

    My mistake, it's PMLB, Perez Molests Little BOYZ, not boys.

  30. 30

    Wow i would b the first 1 in line to go c this tour!!!! But they should add NSYNC as well, then it would b my dream tour. I grew up loving all 3 bands.

  31. 31

    Re: Sofia82 – actually the cruise did not happen yet its going on in december i would know im booked for it so u really mean to say "they're doing a sold out cruise too" just saying

  32. 32

    Really? where do you get off calling people a hasbeen? Im not the biggest fan or this kind of music, but the past 2 years ive gone to see BSB with my girl in detorit, and they still draw huge amounts of people. get your fact straight asshole..

  33. 33

    Oh my gosh!!! I am so super pumped for this tour!!! It better not be a lie!! Those of you who are saying that neither one could sell out a concert are so totally out of it you don't even know!! NKOTB are either still on tour or have just finished their tour and BSB are still on a world tour right now!! I just saw them in Toronto on the 14th and they we AMAZING! So like other ppl are saying take a second and know your facts!!!!

  34. 34

    They should add NSYNC!!! That would be the BEST concert!!

  35. 35

    Where are they going to play ???

    The local DENNY'S ?

  36. 36

    I would go see this concert. NKOTB was the 1st group I loved and BSB was the group during my teenage years. I haven't seen BSB the past few years, but I've seen NKOTB on all the legs of their tour since they came back. They always put on an awesome show & they are always sold out. Shows even need to be added because they sell out so fast. If they want to go on tour together let them. I'm sure all us true fans will be thrilled. And I know I'll be there.

  37. 37

    they need to get nsync on that

  38. 38

    Only if NSync were with them!

  39. 39

    Whatever happened to that pedophile boy band you were trying to create? No moms would allow you to defile and molest their children? Ha!

  40. @v@ says – reply to this


    It WILL be the ultimate Ladies Night Out. I'm not a big enough fan to go see one, but I'll certainly go to see both. I admire their mature spirit of collaboration, and they'll have so much fun jumping into each other's numbers and hitting the town together. They might even fill the big stadiums. Break a leg.

    Obnoxious_joe obviously you are not up on many things, this year NKOTB sold out many shows 3 at Radio City Music hall , lets not forget that in 2011 they will be doing their 3rd sold out cruise… Dont hate what you dislike….

  42. 42

    let it go already guys! the boy band era is over! i loved NKOTB back in the days but i've grown up, just like the rest of us that loved them did. People don't like boy bands anymore, plus trying to resurrect the boy band era just makes these OLD guys look like washed up hacks trying to grasp at their youth. Joey…i mean "Joe" McIntyre tried to make a come back, nobody cared. BSB tried to make a comeback more than once and nobody cared…NKOTB tried to come back and started touring…a handful of people cared. Seriously, it's time to move on with your lives…you can't be in a boy band…YOU'RE OLD ASS GROWN MEN now. Some of you have been married, divorced and in REHAB…that means you no longer fit in the boy band category.

  43. 43

    I saw BSB in August of 2008 and again in June of 2010, and both were up there in the best times of my life. I only know a few songs from NKOTB, but I'd go just to see the Backstreet Boys again.

  44. 44

    I can not wait for this!!! I have not seen a nkotb show yet, but went to bsb concert this year, had 9th row seats and vip passes. I hope this ends up working out. The only reason why it seems like no one cares about bsb because alot of people didn't even know they had an album released! Jive records didnt do any promotions on those boys.. I am so glad they parted ways with jive… They treated bsb like dirt…

  45. 45


  46. 46

    i think they should get N*sync!!!! :)

  47. 47

    Re: nkotb4lifebitches – umm they also sold floor tix for the cheapest i ever seen! 60$ my sister paid… and she was 4th row… whereas bsb were 60 for the back. so nice following! (y)

  48. 48

    Justin Timberlake needs to get the fuck out of acting, get off his high horse, and make an Nsync reunion happen!

  49. 49

    Re: nkotb4lifebitches – AMEN GIRL.

  50. 50

    HELL yeah!!

  51. 51

    WHO NEEDS BSB ??? BOOOOO for that…NKOTB should be touring ALONE ! …leeches !

  52. 52

    Re: ela05 – WORD !

  53. 53

    Re: sam02050 – *lol* bsb half boat not sold out in months…NKOTB full boat 3rd cruise sold out in 2 hrs !

  54. 54

    Re: JM4Life – Um… actually the BSB cruise is sold out! it sold out months ago not too long after it went on sale. There is a waiting list.

  55. 55

    FYI, this is gossip. I was at the BSB vip yesterday and Brian was asked about this - he said nothing is set in stone, and although they've talked about it, he's not sure if its going to happen.

    Why can't Perez post legit news, instead of rumors cited from random "sources?"

  56. 56

    Re: Obnoxious_Joe – I have seen NKOTB 8 times in the last two years and they ALWAYS sell out!!!! Their cruise sold out last Friday in about two hours!!!! Don't talk shit if you don't know what you are talking about!!!!!

  57. 57

    I also want to say that NKOTB cruise is the fastest selling cruise!!!!! This idea of both groups touring isnt so great BSB and NKOTB fans are trully faithfull fans. There both great but from different generation I have not missed a concert in souther cali of the nk and they sold out the staples it was awsome.

  58. 58

    Re: nkotb4lifebitches – Thank you! I agree with you 101%

  59. 59

    Re: JM4Life – OMG i agree NKOTB should tour alone! they always put on amazing shows to sold out crowds………lol good point about the cruise ;)

  60. 60

    this will be great even tho i do not like bsb at all. nkotb are amazing. and they do well on thier own. their cruze sold out in like 3 hours and they already been touring for like 2 years and have always been packed. i went to the first one and i will go to this one even tho bsb may be there. and oh hell no how do u ppl even think nsync can compare. god they sucked as much as bsb. nkotb the original boy band!!!

  61. 61

    OK, I don't know why BSB, and NKOTB fans can't seem to get along, BSB fans inparticular from what I have read in this comment section, but aside from tickets being THAT much harder to get, I would love to see them tour together. I enjoy both of their music, but wasn't a big enough fan of BSB to ever see them in concert. Seeing them perform from the front row of RCMH when they came out during the NKOTB show was awesome! Nick held my hand several times, AJ sang while looking down at me, as did Brian, and I felt so lucky to be there. I am 100% an NKOTB fan, have been since 1986, and have been to over 40 shows, as I said, I would love for them to tour together, but not if this is going to cause some kind of unpleasant issue. I don't want to go to an NKOTB/BSB concert and hear NKOTB get bashed by BSB fans, and I don't want to see or hear BSB get bashed by NKOTB fans. Concerts are supposed to be fun, I hope if this comes to fruition, we can all get along peacefully.
