New Kids On The Block are coming to Dublin. The boyband who, let's face it, are middle-aged men at this stage, will play what is being billed as an 'intimate evening' in Dublin's Bord Gais Energy Theatre on Sunday 25th May next as part of a 16-date European tour.
Comprised of brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood, New Kids on the Block have sold 80 million albums worldwide and dominated airwaves with a bevy of chart hits such as 'You Got It (The Right Stuff)', 'Cover Girl', 'Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)', 'Hangin' Tough', 'I'll Be Loving You', 'Step By Step', and 'Tonight'.
In 2008, after around 15 years in the pop wilderness, NKOTB announced their return to the live arena on the Today Show and have played to a cumulative live audience of over 1 million people since then.
A statement issued by the band regarding the tour read: "We've played arenas, and stadiums, all over the world in the last 6 years. Yet, some of our best concerts have been in the most intimate of venues, where we are closer to our amazing fans. In fact, we all agree that London's Hammersmith Apollo was without question one of our favorite concerts ever! This tour gives us a chance to have that intimacy with our fans again. To get up close and intimate with the best fans in the world."
Tickets, including exclusive VIP packages, will go on sale from 9am on Friday 21st February.
