'90s Kids, This Is The Tour Of Your Dreams

by Courtney Lindley

The Total Package tour is exactly what it sounds like. A package that is total. A package that includes New Kids on the Block, Boyz II Men, and Paula Abdul on stage, all at once, coming together to hit the road and provide you with the type of '90s nostalgia you and your Tamagotchi pets could only ever dream of. And, even then, it wouldn't be as good as this. On Tuesday, while on the Today Show, New Kids on the Block announced a new tour. But not just any tour. As previously stated, a NKOTB tour that will also feature Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul, with her first tour in over 25 years. But how, oh how, can you get tickets to the Total Package Tour?

The tickets go on sale Saturday, November 19, but pre-sale starts November 16. You can find them on Ticket Master. You can also visit the New Kids on the Block official site, and access dates and locations there, though you'll still process payment through Ticket Master. So, either way, you're going to use Ticket Master. But, look, it's so easy. You're a few clicks away from seeing three iconic, legendary, game-changing artists together on one stage. What a time to be alive.

In a statement for the fans via Billboard, NKOTB's Donnie Wahlberg said, "Our fans know we love to bring them a party, and this tour is no exception. It’s not just a show, it’s an experience. Paula Abdul is such a pop icon and Boyz II Men are one of the best R&B acts of all time. It’s going to be a night of hit after hit, and we can’t wait to deliver the ‘Total Package’ to our fans!"'

What will the Total Package include? A mashup of "Please Don't Go Girl" with "End of the Road" with "Opposites Attract?" Or what about "Step by Step" meets "I'll Make Love To You" meets "Rush, Rush"? The possibilities are truly endless and so full of joy.

The tour will begin on May 12 at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio and will run until July 16, at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida. It will stop through major cities like Houston, New Orleans, Chicago, Seattle, San Dieo, and will feature the band's first-ever performance at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Mark your calendars for November 19 now, if you know what's good for you.
