New Kids On The Block bring The Main Event Tour to the Amway Center with TLC and Nelly June 5, 2015
New Kids On The Block are stepping into the ring for 2015. The pop phenoms stopped by “Good Morning America” this morning to announce The Main Event, a summer headlining tour featuring very special guests, Grammy Award-winning and multi-platinum-selling artists TLC and Nelly.
NKOTB surprised viewers with a special reveal of TLC and a personal message from Nelly (currently overseas with the armed forces). The groups hinted at possible collaborations and other exciting possibilities while on the road this summer, sending fans into a frenzy across social media.
The tour, promoted by Live Nation, kicks off on May 1 and plays over 30 cities across North America. NKOTB stops in Orlando at the Amway Center on Friday, June 5. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Saturday, January 31 at 10 a.m.
After announcing the tour on “Good Morning America,” NKOTB took over the “LIVE! with Kelly and Michael” set to step in and play a mix of super hits and new fan favorites throughout the entire hour. The morning TV whirlwind was followed up with an NKOTB/TLC media blitz. The groups shut down Chase Plaza at Madison Square Garden for a press conference filled with media and ecstatic fans, talking with outlets like “Access Hollywood,” “E!,” “Entertainment Tonight,” “EXTRA,” Associated Press and BuzzFeed. Social media has been abuzz ever since the official reveal with no signs of slowing down.
“We always have something special up our sleeves,” said NKOTB member Donnie Wahlberg. “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.”
With all-new and top-notch production elements, this tour will be the ultimate summer concert ticket. The highlights will include a 360-degree stage in the round. The stage set up will offer optimal viewing with no obstructions. The bands have worked hard on the show and staging concept to make sure that everyone in the house has a part of the action, up close and center.
“We are thrilled to be able to join pop icons NKTOB and Nelly on tour. We are equally excited to be back on the road connecting with our fans in such huge arenas,” said TLC.
