The NKOTBSB Tour is a co-headlining concert tour between American boy bands New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys, who together formed NKOTBSB. The tour visited North America in 2011. Europe,[1] Australia and Asia were added to the itinerary for 2012. The tour ranked 44th in Pollstar's "Top 50 Worldwide Tour (Mid-Year)", earning over 10 million dollars.[2] At the conclusion of 2011, the tour placed 17th on Billboard's annual "Top 25 Tours", earning over $40 million with 51 shows.[3]

The London concert on April 29, 2012 in O2 Arena was shown live at select movie theaters at 9PM CET[4] and streamed live with pay per view system.[5]

Background[edit]

We were all on tour, not together at the same time, but we were pretty close on the road. NKOTB were wrapping up their summer run. We happened to be out and we ended up being on stage together. It was a magical moment [...] none of us will never forget. Right after we performed together everybody on Twitter and Facebook...it was everywhere that we were going on tour. So we started talking about it and we made it happen.[6]

During the summer of 2010, the Backstreet Boys joined New Kids on the Block onstage at the Radio City Music Hall (as a part of NKOTB Casi-NO Tour), where the groups performed "I Want It That Way".[7] Since the performance, the media began to circulate rumors of the two uniting for a tour in the summer of 2011.[8]

The tour was officially announced on On Air with Ryan Seacrest during an interview, where it was mentioned the groups recording a single to be later released.[7] To promote the tour further, the groups conducted a live Q&A session on Ustream.[9] The groups also performed at the 38th Annual American Music Awards to give the public a taste of what they would see on the tour.[10] For an interview on Entertainment Tonight, Donnie Wahlberg held a picture of the proposed staging, which featured a standard concert stage with an extended catwalk leading to a circular platform.
