New Kids on the Block map spring tour

, Staff

New Kids on the Block will continue their reunion tour this spring. The Boston group have mapped a 15-city tour for this March, with a stop planned for the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire on Tuesday, March 31. Tickets for the show, priced from $36 to $66, go on sale Friday at noon through both Live Nation and Ticketmaster. New Kids will also make a stop at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine on Wednesday, March 25.

After BMS exclusively reported the reunion was in-fact a strong possibility in April 2007, New Kids on the Block announced their reunion last April. All five members – Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood, and Jordan and Jonathan Knight – reconvened in the studio to record a brand new album, The Block. The album, their first studio release in fourteen years, debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart last summer and the subsequent reunion was a massive success at the box office, including two sold out shows at the TD Banknorth Garden.

In December, the group was awarded Act of the Year at the Boston Music Awards.
