TLC, Nelly, New Kids On The Block Announce Summer Tour
Talk about a huge line up. It was announced on Tuesday that TLC, Nelly and New Kids On The Block will be kicking off an epic summer tour on May 1 starting in Las Vegas.
“Our fans keep asking us to come back out on the road, and we want to keep giving them what they want,” Donnie Wahlberg said during Tuesday’s announcement on Good Morning America. “We wanted to make sure it was something new and fresh and fun and totally worthwhile for all of our supporters year after year.”
Wahlberg added, “This is such a great bill and we have so many hit records and such huge followings that we just want to make it the party of the year. That’s why we call it ‘The Main Event.’ It’s going to be the event of the year.”
Joey McIntyre chimed in, “It’s going to be one big, huge, massive party. That’s a lot of hit records in one night. I’m excited.”
The guys explained that they built bar seats around the stage so fans can sit and hang out with the group. “We can share their snacks and drinks if we want to,” Donnie said. “It’s going to be incredible. It’s got lifts and pop ups and all types of amazing things.”
TLC also joined the guys on GMA to talk about the anticipated tour. “It’s the perfect combination,” Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas said. TLC is currently using Kickstarter to raise funds for their final album, in which NKOTB will be donating a whopping $10,000.
