New Kids On The Block Reveal ‘The Main Event’

With New Kids On The Block topping the ticket, “The Main Event” features very special guests TLC and Nelly.  Playing arenas across the country, the adventure begins in Las Vegas in May.

NKOTB is definitely working the press in anticipation of this spring-summer run.  The boys appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” earlier today and continued the party on “Live! With Kelly and Michael.”  Then New Kids and TLC took Manhattan, shutting down Chase Plaza at Madison Square Garden for a press conference.

“We always have something special up our sleeves,” Donnie Wahlberg said.  “Our fans keep asking us to come back out on the road, and we want to keep giving them what they want!  We wanted to make sure it was something new and fresh and fun and totally worthwhile for all of our supporters year after year.  This year, we are making it ‘The Main Event.’  And we promise, it will be ‘The Ticket’ of the summer.”

What can fans expect on this outing?  Word from the NKTOB camp is that “The Main Event” will feature new, top-notch production elements including a 360-degree stage in the round offering optimal viewing.
