The wait is over… the NKOTBSB supergroup formed by pop legends New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys will bring their first-ever combined tour to the UK later this month.
The shows will provide a must-see concert experience for UK fans, and features a unique stage design that gives every fan an up-close experience.
A huge success in the U.S, the tour has received rave reviews, with the Boston Herald claiming that it is “proof good pop songs never age,” and the US Metro stating: “NKOTBSB still have the right stuff”.
With over 200 million albums sold between both bands, and smash hit after smash hit, including Backstreet Boys’ ‘I Want It that Way’ and New Kids On The Block’s ‘Hangin’ Tough,’ these two pop sensations have dominated the music scene for over three decades.
The group recently released the NKOTBSB album, which premiered the first newly recorded songs from the combined supergroup, including the sizzling first single ‘Don’t Turn Out The Lights’. In addition to the new NKOTBSB recordings and the fan-approved classic New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys tracks, NKOTBSB debuts a newly recorded mash-up of smash hits from both groups.
Expect retro nostalgia and a back catalogue of worldwide smash hits mixed with a modern twist, when two of the world’s biggest boybands return next year to be reunited in concert with their UK fans.

For more than 17 years, Backstreet Boys have delivered the very finest pop music has to offer – tightly crafted songs, floor-shaking rhythms, and unmistakable harmonies. One of the most successful groups in music history, with countless number ones, record-setting tours, and worldwide sales in excess of 100 million, Backstreet Boys are also among Pop’s most influential. They also are the biggest selling boy band of all time! The band made history when all tickets for their greatly anticipated 11-week, 39-city Millennium North American Arena Tour sold out as soon as they went on sale- the vast majority within an hour. At the time the millennium tour set a Ticketmaster record by selling 735,000 tickets in two hours. They are also among the few bands to have received the Diamond Award from the R.I.A.A. for sales of more than 10 million on both the Backstreet Boy’s and Millennium albums.
