Excitement continues to grow for the upcoming tour that will bring together New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys (who have cleverly dubbed their combined unit NKOTBSB). The trek, which kicks off on June 2 and is currently booked through the end of July, will showcase two of the biggest boy bands in the history of pop music, featuring individual sets as well as plenty of collaborations between the two factions. On Wednesday (January 26), seven members of the tour (Brian Littrell, Jonathan Knight, Howie Dorough, Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre and Danny Wood) gathered in Boston to announce a huge event: A show at Fenway Park, the venerable home of the Boston Red Sox, on June 11. The press conference ended with a trip to the outfield to hang out at the famous Green Monster. The show will be especially meaningful for the New Kids, who all grew up in the Boston area. Ticket pre-sales are going on now, and they'll be available to the general public on February 5.
