Watch: NKOTB & TLC Announce Joint U.S. Tour On ‘Good Morning America’

Published: Tuesday 20th Jan 2015 by Rashad

As top-selling girl group TLC readies a new album of hopeful hits to perform alongside their already envied catalogue, the duo took to ‘Good Morning America’ to officially announce a joint tour with fellow 90s hitmakers New Kids on the Block and rapper Nelly.

Blasting off on May 1 in Las Vegas, the 47-date Stateside trek will see the trio of acts touch every corner of the U.S and wrap on July 2 in Buffalo, NY.

“It’s going to be one big, huge, massive party,” said Joey McIntyre of NKOTB. “That’s a lot of hit records in one night. I’m excited.”

Alot of hits indeed. Look below to hear TLC dish on the upcoming tour:

The announcement comes just a year after NKOTB ended another joint tour with fellow boybands Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees and just months after TLC wrapped their own globe-trotter.

Are joint tours becoming the best way for older acts to fill stadiums?

We hope so.  While, in keeping it all the way real, it’s going to be a pain for the billed artists to have to split the check so many different ways, the draw of seeing some of your fave old school acts on one revolving stage is alluring for many-a-concertgoer – us included.

    I’m all for the fan-funded album but this Tour of the Hasbeens is not a good look with NKOTB getting the top billing on that poster. With that said, I’m not mad at them finding a chance to tour again.

    • truth (icki is on the radio cryn cause THEPINKSHIT Flippidy flipidy FLOP!!! January 20, 2015

      Yo mammy a has been ho

      • Paulo January 20, 2015

        … says the ‘never was’ cockroach from TGJ. —->

  3. NO TREBLE January 20, 2015

    LoL what the hell? Who is gonna pay to see a bunch of washed up hasbeens? Then they have the nerve to book arenas!!! Death.

    • Truth January 20, 2015

      People grown enough to pay for their own tickets and drive to the venue themselves instead of needing their mothers to do it for them.

      • NO TREBLE January 20, 2015

        Sooooo basically no one? Watch most of these dates get canceled due to low sales. LoL!

      • FAF January 20, 2015

        These ppl don’t. Know what they’re talking about nkotb have a huge following and tlc will benefit hugely

    • truth (icki is on the radio cryn cause THEPINKSHIT Flippidy flipidy FLOP!!! January 20, 2015

      Ho go eat some pusssy!!! They r legends so stay pressed

  4. Arie January 20, 2015

    This tour will probably be a success.

  5. truth (icki is on the radio cryn cause THEPINKSHIT Flippidy flipidy FLOP!!! January 20, 2015

    Yaaaasssss TLC is the shyt honey!!!

  6. HYISI January 20, 2015

    Uh…Why would TLC and Nelly be opening for The New Kids On The Block? Both acts had higher commercial peaks than the main act! It’s not like people check for TNKOTA like that either and then to book arenas!!!! Good Luck

  7. Theman January 20, 2015

    Y’all are out of your mind. NKOTB tours are very successful. TLC will bring their fans coupled with Nelly’s They’ll make some money. Then they’re working on an album. If they could earn a few modest hits they’d be aight.

  8. G4L January 20, 2015

    I have no issue with this because they are working.
    They tried it thinking we would throw money at them for an album as if thousands of artists don’t release music digitally

  9. 2nd Taylor Swift Stan (so ready for the 1989 Tour to slay me hard) January 20, 2015

    Lol! Arenas? Chile, ya’ll better stop making me laugh. If at least two if the three acts are “established legends”, then how come no stadium dates have been booked? First this ridiculous cruise ship tv show and now an arena tour? Girl, they better hope and pray that those ratings and ticket sales are at an all time high or else they’ll flop so hard they’ll ruin their legacy. Good luck!

    • FAF January 20, 2015

      They aren’t stupid it’s still 2015

  10. eric January 20, 2015

    I saw the New Kids on tour with BSB and they were great; they all sounded good. I am VERY excited about the chance to see TLC…I’ve been waiting a long time for it. I don’t really care for Nelly.

  11. MusicLife January 20, 2015

    Interesting mix since they all come from different eras. NKOTB late 80s-early 90s. TLC 94-2001 and Nelly 2000-2006/8
