New Kids on the Block concert chronology

The Hangin' Tough Tour was a 1989 concert tour by Boston boy band New Kids on the Block, launched to support their album Hangin' Tough.


Since the 1988 release of Hangin' Tough, the New Kids had performed as the opening act for fellow teen pop singer Tiffany's successful North American tour. Due to a sudden rise of the group's popularity, Tiffany wound up opening for them on this tour, but they were credited as co-headliners.

During the November and December tour dates, the New Kids released the holiday album Merry, Merry Christmas, and several of the album's songs were incorporated into the tour's setlist.
