New Kids On The Block will join forces with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men for a summer outing. The blockbuster outing, aptly titled “The Package Tour”, will kick off in Connecticut and include two shows in Massachusetts. The trio of veteran singing groups will perform at Boston’s TD Garden on Sunday, June 2 and Monday, June 3. Tickets for each of the concerts, which range in price from $29.50 to $92, will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

Along with the tour, New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) have also announced plans for new music. The group has been quietly spending the past six months writing and recording their sixth studio effort and first since 2008’s The Block. The new album, titled 10, will hit stores on April 2. “Remix (I Like The)”, 10‘s lead single, is streaming below and available for download through iTunes January 28.

“Ladies, we’re coming for you,” declared NKOTB member Donnie Wahlberg in a press release. “This is going to be the craziest year yet – the single, the album, the tour with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men… We can’t wait to give fans ‘The Package!'”

The tour will mark 98 Degrees’ first in over 12 years. The group reunited last summer and has been working on their first album since 2000’s Revelation.

“We are really excited to get back on the road together and tour with our friends in NKOTB and Boyz II Men. Looking forward to playing our hits and trying out some of our new tracks too,” said 98 Degrees’ Nick Lachey in a press release.

Boyz II Men’s last release was 2011’s Twenty. The double CD set features ten new songs and ten newly recorded tracks.

“We couldn’t be more excited to join New Kids on the Block and 98 Degrees on ‘The Package Tour’. This summer is going to be fun and fans will not want to miss it,” said Boyz II Men’s Shawn Stockman in a press release. Wanya Morris added, “This has been in the works for a while… ‘The Package’ is on its way, and we’re going to deliver.”

The tour will kick off with a two-night stand at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on Wednesday, May 29 and Friday, May 31. Tickets for each of the shows will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster for $59 and $79.
