New Kids On The Block And Backstreet Boys Team Up to Bring BoyBand Supergroup On Tour To UK

New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys are bringing their boyband supergroup on tour to the UK.

The two 90s chart-toppers have teamed up to form the ultimate man band NKOTBSB and are releasing an album of the same name in the UK in October.

NKOTBSB have been touring the US this summer, wowing screaming fans with their hits Hangin' Tough, Everybody (Backstreet's Back) and their first collaborated single Don't Turn Out The Lights.

An album of favourites and their new single is being released ahead of them coming to perform live in the UK early next year.

The supergroup performed together on stage for the first time at the American Music Awards 2010.

New Kids On The Block, whose members include Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre and Jordan Knight, formed in 1984 and went on to be named by Forbes as the highest paid entertainers of the 1990s - beating Michael Jackson - and smashed concert records playing an estimated 200 shows a year.

Backstreet Boys, who are currently made up of Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Howie Dorough, became the bestselling boyband of all time when they sold all 735,000 tickets for 11-week, 39-city Millennium North American Arena Tour in two hours.
