New Kids On The Block and the Backstreet Boys' 24-date 2011 summer tour will begin in Connecticut in June. The two boyband supergroups, who performed together at Sunday's November 21 American Music Awards, will launch the dates at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville on June 2. The concerts will wrap up in Vancouver, Canada on July 9.
A joint statement reads, "We can't thank our fans enough for their continued support. The love that everyone has shown to us and to this project is incredible. We can feel the excitement and we won't let the fans down. And with our new and elaborate stage design there won't be one bad seat in the house."
What to expect from the upcoming joint trek was previewed in their live duet performance at the closing set of AMAs over the weekend. They did a mash-up of "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)" and "Hangin' Tough" and performed some other songs.
