The groups hinted at possible collaborations and other exciting possibilities while on the road this summer, sending fans into a frenzy across social media. The tour kicks off on May 1st in Las Vegas, NV and tickets can be purchased starting January 31 on www.ticketmaster.com.

The groups shut down Chase Plaza at Madison Square Garden for a press conference filled with media and ecstatic fans, talking with outlets like Access Hollywood, E!, ET, EXTRA, Associated Press and Buzz Feed. Social media has been abuzz ever since the official reveal with no signs of slowing down.<br /> <br /> We always have something special up our sleeves, said NKOTB member Donnie Wahlberg. Our fans keep asking us to come back out on the road, and we want to keep giving them what they want! We wanted to make sure it was something new and fresh and fun and totally worthwhile for all of our supporters year after year. This year, we are making it THE MAIN EVENT. And we promise, it will be THE TICKET of the summer.<br /> <br /> With all new and top notch production elements, this tour is sure to be the ultimate summer concert ticket as promised. The highlights will include a 360 degree stage in the round. With no obstructions, the stage set up will offer optimal viewing. The bands have worked hard in the conception to make sure that everyone in the house has a part of the action, up close and center.<br /> <br /> We are thrilled to be able to join pop icons NKTOB and Nelly on tour. We are equally excited to be back on the road connecting with our fans in such huge arenas, said TLC.</p> <p><a href="http://nkotb.com/events">View all the tour dates here</a>and join the conversation using <strong>#themainevent</strong>.</p> <p></p> <p>From <a href="http://www.nkotb.com/">www.nkotb.com</a></p>Tue, 20 Jan 2015 11:40:00 -0800http://www.nkotb.com/news/238553NKOTB Takes Over Live with Kelly and Michael!<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/newkidsontheblock/media/05/06/images/assets/medium.w6bMg6HUqzHUA6TsoGI1f0G4mMGJZZDGPd7uSVm2tCg.jpg" /><br /><p>In celebration of their launch event, NKOTB took over the Live with Kelly & Michael and jumped in to play as the house band!</p> <p>From <a href="http://www.nkotb.com/">www.nkotb.com</a></p>Tue, 20 Jan 2015 08:40:00 -0800http://www.nkotb.com/news/238543Main Event Tour Press Conference at Madison Square Garden<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/newkidsontheblock/media/06/14/images/assets/medium.R7vh-ob2-AuIPnUi7rOxtpaN4R0ufJa0gKd7T7cRy7c.jpg" /><br /><p>Nelly might have been overseas with the troops, but we made sure he was still at the Press Conference, announcing the Main Event Tour in spirit!</p> <p>From <a href="http://www.nkotb.com/">www.nkotb.com</a></p>Tue, 20 Jan 2015 08:17:00 -0800http://www.nkotb.com/news/238533Main Event Tour Stage Design Sneak Peak!<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/newkidsontheblock/media/09/07/images/assets/medium.ZU7LK9UsYVnN3ybv217wXFhjD9xo3BWrVErlURXp3wY.jpg" /><br /><p>Have you seen the 360-degree stage in the round!?

You are our fuel, our energy and our inspiration.<br /> <br /> Standing arm-in-arm with his four Boston brothers, a teary Donnie Wahlberg paid tribute to the fans who have stood by New Kids on the Block for more than 30 years.<br /> <br /> Flying in from Peru and Europe, sporting Obsessive NKOTB Disorder t-shirts, waving Blockhead Blvd signs and queuing before the sun had even touched the Hollywood Hills, around 2,500 Blockheads packed the street to watch the multi-platinum, chart-topping group receive the Walk of Fames 2530th star.<br /> <br /> Streets were shut down and tour buses halted to a stop to witness the eager crowd performing group sing-alongs to The Right Stuff and Step by Step as they waited for their idols.<br /> <br /> ve been to a lot of ceremonies over the years over 500 and this is one of the most enthusiastic crowds weve ever had, said Leron Gubler, president/CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.<br /> <br /> Comedian and talk show host Arsenio Hall an instrumental supporter of the group since their early days then declared himself the sixth New Kid before applauding the undeniably powerful mark the quintet has made in musical history.<br /> <br /> I love them as much as a Cavaliers fan from Cleveland can love guys from Boston, he laughed. You know why I love them? They make us happy. You can not listen to a song or watch a video and not smile. Their songs will be our oldies when were old. Were going to have the greatest oldies in the history of music because we have New Kids.<br /> <br /> Having earlier debated who should speak on behalf of the completely blown away group, an emotional Donnie took to the microphone beginning by thanking family.<br /> <br /> Not just our parents and brothers and sisters but our children and our significant others.<br /> <br /> Our children have put up with so much sacrifice. They watched us leave home for months at a time and miss out on some of the important moments in their lives. Theyve made such incredible sacrifices for us. We owe them such a debt of gratitude and are so thankful to all of our family members for standing by us through all these years.<br /> <br /> Donnie also credited the bands original dream team, notably Maurice Starr, the man who brought the teenagers together in Boston in 1984, and their first manager Mary Alford.<br /> <br /> She drove us around in her little Mustang, sitting on each others laps and picking on each other mostly picking on one who now picks on us!<br /> <br /> Noting the second dream team who pulled off the impossible by spearheading the groups 2008 reunion and comeback, Donnie then turned to his band members.<br /> <br /> ve been together for 30 years and been friends for longer. Weve been through the droughts of droughts, highs of highs and things that most people could never imagine. We went from playing for food and meals in prisons, high schools, birthday parties and bar mitzvahs, to playing for the most amazing fans in the world, all over the world.<br /> <br /> I think I speak for all of us in saying I would not have wanted to spend one minute of the last 30 years with anyone besides this team right here. We say it often but we are brothers. And its real.<br /> <br /> But it was the loyal, die-hard Blockheads that the band who also announced they will be releasing new music soon wanted to pay homage to most.<br /> <br /> To Jordan, the Walk of Fame honor was all about the fans.<br /> <br /> ve worked hard and given a lot, but our fans have given double, he said in the days leading up to the ceremony. So its an awesome, fun moment to share with our fans to give them that recognition that they deserve for making it happen for us.<br /> <br /> A notable presence in the throng of Blockheads was Massachusetts Melissa Buja, who had been leading the campaign for the group to receive a star since 2011.<br /> <br /> Donnie struggled to speak while thanking fans like Melissa.<br /> <br /> When we started all those years ago we did not expect or even want fame, money, cars and houses. We were playing empty high school gyms just for the love of what we were doing and if there was one thing we really wanted to get out of all of this, it was you.<br /> <br /> We wanted our Blockheads. We wanted someone to share this journey with. We can write a million songs, wear the best clothes, go on a million TV shows and do dance steps til were blue in the face, but without you it means nothing.<br /> <br /> re more than fans you are our friends and our family. This would never happen without you, so to all the Blockheads around the world, we love the sh** out of you and well be coming to see you real soon!<br /> <br /> By Leena Tailor / <a href="https://twitter.com/LeenaNZ" target="_blank">@LeenaNZ</a></p> <p>From <a href="http://www.nkotb.com/">www.nkotb.com</a></p>Fri, 10 Oct 2014 12:00:00 -0700http://www.nkotb.com/news/228153Walk of Fame Media Coverage<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/newkidsontheblock/media/05/05/images/assets/medium.R9dQ29c3Z3q2xEF0r3sTPNDaKbN0hz2Iv-0ZsOgnncA.jpg" /><br /><p>On Thursday, Oct. 9, the New Kids on the Block were honored with a much deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

While there was no use of the incredible LED screens in the Axis, home of Britney Spears resident show Britney: Piece of Me, no matter.<br /> <br /> When Donnie Wahlberg, Joe McIntyre, Danny Wood and brothers Jonathan and Jordan Knight, all of whom have been together for more than 25 years, took the stage Friday night, they started off with a bang (there were pyrotechnics aplenty fire and fireworks as well as a lot of confetti throughout the night), and the energy of their choreography and their love for performing and their fans never waned.<br /> <br /> Powering through hit after hit, plus a ballad section in the nearly 90-minute show, NKOTB, who are thankfully up-to-date with their fashion (white tuxedo jackets, boleros and denim), are rock stars in their predominately female fans eyes, and the screaming was piercing at times in the Axis.<br /> <br /> To the delight of fans, NKOTB performed often in the crowd. At one point, McIntyre was so close that he couldve been touched without effort, but it didnt happen. Why? Its called restraint.<br /> <br /> The audience also showed a lot of love for Wood and Jonathan Knight during their rare solo singing (both are actually quite good, and Wood could be an MMA fighter).<br /> <br /> The nights cheekiest moment: After all the group members except Jonathan Knight returned to the stage, Wahlberg, who is engaged to actress and comedienne Jenny McCarthy, quipped, Jonathan, get back up here and leave that boy alone!<br /> <br /> While the Axis is more intimate and provides NKOTB fans with an up-close-and-personal show, the group was more rehearsed and sharper vocally in previous Las Vegas shows at Pearl at the Palms and Mandalay Bay Events Center (with Backstreet Boys as NKOTBSB, Mirage headliners Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees, whose founder and frontman, Jeff Timmons, lives in Summerlin).<br /> <br /> That said, McIntyre belted it out with the best of them on Broadway (as his resume include Broadway), and Jordan Knights falsetto remains impressive at age 44, especially in ll Be Loving You Forever, the bands first No. 1 song. (All the members of NKOTB are in their 40s now, McIntyre the youngest at 41.)<br /> <br /> The setlist of NKOTB: After Dark: Remix (I Like The), The Right Stuff (with extended crotch-thrusting), The Whisper with LMFAOs mashed, Survive You, t I) Blow Your Mind This Time, Valentine Girl, If You Go Away, Please Dont Go Girl, Block Party in the crowd, My Favorite Girl mashed with Will.I.Am and Spears Scream & Shout and ll Be There by The Jackson Five.<br /> <br /> Also: Careless Whisper by Wham, by George Michael (during which McIntyre teased to a nearby audience member, Dude, youre on your cell phone. I was going to sing to you!), by Prince, Hot in Herre by Nelly, in the audience, Step By Step mashed with Salt-N-Pepas Push It, Cover Girl in the audience, ll Be Loving You Forever with Jordan Knight onstage alone in all white and Hanging Tough mashed with Queens We Will Rock You.<br /> <br /> Check out the photo gallery <a href="http://www.lasvegassun.com/photos/galleries/2014/jul/14/new-kids-on-the-block-axis-planet-hollywood-vegas/#/0" target="_blank">HERE</a></p> <p></p> <p>From <a href="http://www.nkotb.com/">www.nkotb.com</a></p>Tue, 15 Jul 2014 15:25:00 -0700http://www.nkotb.com/news/218363Re-Live the #NKOTBPartyPlane<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/newkidsontheblock/media/13/07/images/assets/medium.ag1iniaX3vxNoygPElwntIRJkJ5ciX9J2Xz_JtG4Pco.jpg" /><br /><p>Re-live the wonder that was the NKOTB party plane</p> <p></p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" mozallowfullscreen="" src="//player.vimeo.com/video/100547432" webkitallowfullscreen="" width="500"></iframe></p> <p><a href="http://vimeo.com/100547432">#NKOTBPartyPlane on Southwest Airlines</a></p> <p>From <a href="http://www.nkotb.com/">www.nkotb.com</a></p>Mon, 14 Jul 2014 10:35:00 -0700http://www.nkotb.com/news/218073New Kids on the Block After Dark Las Vegas Concert: The Top 10 Moments<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/newkidsontheblock/media/00/11/images/assets/medium._Aw0BH29VYfG7i0EQP8Q8wj8nJdVPgg_mCJyEWlF1EI.jpg" /><br /><p><a href="http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop-shop/6157459/new-kids-on-the-block-after-dark-las-vegas-concert-video" target="_blank"><strong>BILLBOARD</strong></a> - Donnie Wahlberg has a mouth like a sailor and an affinity for sparkly sneakers. Joey McIntyre possesses a remarkable sense of balance and loves him a V-neck tee. Jonathan Knight is a pro at weak-kneeing the ladies, his brother Jordan can still give it to you with those dance moves and Danny Wood is one hell of a breakdancer.<br /> <br /> All these things and more I learned yesterday, because I spent the evening watching New Kids on the Block perform at Planet Hollywood. And it was amazing.<br /> <br /> Thats right friends, while most people were tucking themselves in so they could get ready for another long day at work, I was gleefully watching the musical stylings of Donnie, Joey, Jonathan, Jordan, and Danny as they wowed the crowd in Las Vegas. The moves, the look, and the music are all still there.<br /> <br /> And so, I give you the 10 greatest moments from the 2014 New Kids on the Block After Dark concert.<br /> <br /> <strong>1. New Kids On The Block Have One Impressive Song Catalogue: </strong>There is nothing better than hearing a group you love sing a song you totally forgot about, and boy do the boys of NKOTB have a few of those. With a set list that included "Step by Step," "Hangin Tough," "You Got It (The Right Stuff)," "Cover Girl" and "Ill Be Loving You (Forever)," to name just a few, every song seemed to illicit screams from the very adult audience.<br /> <br /> <strong>2. New Kids On The Block Do One Hell Of A Cover:</strong> As if their own songs arent enough, we also got some covers of WHAM!, George Michael, Prince, Nelly, Backstreet Boys, and even Salt-N-Pepa. And boy can those boys still push it real good.<br /> <br /> <strong>3. Danny Wood Is Quite The Breakdancer:</strong> Danny may be the quiet member of NKOTB, but he has the most impressive dance moves. This became clear towards the end of last nights show when he put on a break dancing master class, much to the joy of thousands of women.<br /> <br /> <strong>4. Donnie Wahlberg Is The Worlds Greatest MC:</strong> The only thing better than the music last night was listening to Donnies banter in between songs. Highlights included his response to initial fears that fans might not travel out to Vegas to see the group ("We fuc*ing built it, and you fuc*ing came!") and how much longer the band would keep performing together ("Were gonna keep this sh*t going until they drag these motherfuc*ers out in a box!"). Also, Donnie likes to curse, and is very, very good at it.<br /> <br /> <strong>5. Joey McIntyre Loves Him Some Audience Participation:</strong> The boys took it to the audience for a few songs and it seemed at one point that they were going to have to physically drag Mr. McIntyre back onstage. He managed to touch the hand of pretty much every fan in the audience while making eye contact and somehow running across the perilously thin elevated dividers in the venue. It was a bit like watching "Man on Wire."<br /> <br /> <strong>6. Jonathan Knight Is A Pro At Making It Personal: </strong>Two lovely ladies in front of the stage almost fainted last night as the Jonathan took it down a few notches, kneeled on stage and took their hands. Hes a charmer that one.<br /> <br /> <strong>7. Jordan Knight Is Still Busting Out Those Moves:</strong> To watch Jordan Knight dance is to watch poetry in motion friends, and, after 25 years, he seems to only be improving with age. I cant deny, he do it right.<br /> <br /> <strong>8. Lights, Fire, And Confetti, Oh My:</strong> The technical side of the show is almost as fun as the performances. Bright lights! Shooting flames! Confetti, glitter, and streamers falling from the ceiling! It was kind of like the greatest childrens birthday party ever, but for adults and with lots of drinks.<br /> <br /> <strong>9. The Men Of NKOTB Know How To Rock The Formal Wear:</strong> The boys wore black suits and the boys wore white suits and in both looks these gents looked dapper as fu*k. Oh, and Donnie and Joey also took a moment to deconstruct those suits and let us all know they are still doing their ab workouts.<br /> <br /> <strong>10. NKOTB May Have The Greatest Fans:</strong> Every singer and group wants to lay claim to having the greatest fans ever, but NKOTB may have them all beat. After 25 years together the boys are still bringing them in, and as we saw last night at a sold out venue, these Blockheads are one devoted group. They hang out together for hours before the show catching up with one another, and no sooner was the concert over than they rushed to the site of the after party for one more look at their boys. Also, they all have the best eighties tees ever.<br /> <br /> So do yourself a favor and if youre near Vegas, get yourself to this show before it closes on Sunday.<br /> <br /> For the original article and some clips form the performance, check out <a href="http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop-shop/6157459/new-kids-on-the-block-after-dark-las-vegas-concert-video" target="_blank">Billboard.com</a>.</p> <p>From <a href="http://www.nkotb.com/">www.nkotb.com</a></p>Fri, 11 Jul 2014 13:49:00 -0700http://www.nkotb.com/news/217973NKOTB Do Vegas, Cover Backstreet Boys & Channel Britney Spears At Their ‘After Dark’ Kickoff<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/newkidsontheblock/media/12/09/images/assets/medium.fpt2-GuDoHp0cDkaAydWZl0uCeJ5VTpzInm2NoortLQ.jpg" /><br /><p>Three decades into my hypothetical career as a recording artist, Id probably be lucky to have a vanity label of designer crop tops for ferrets. And thats where the New Kids On The Block and I differ and I dont just mean because their music careers are, like, actually real. Its been 28 years since NKOTB released their self-titled debut album in 1986, and theyre still playing to packed venues.<br /> <br /> On Thursday, July 10, the guys kicked off their four-night New Kids On The Block: After Dark run at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood. In case that place sounds familiar, thats where Britney Spears Britney: Piece Of Me residency is hosted.<br /> <br /> If the night was any indication, a full-on Vegas residency of their own wouldnt be a bad idea for the all-man boy band not that thats any news to them. These four concerts are sort of a test run, a chance at dipping our toe in, as member Joey McIntyre put it in a pre-show interview. And as Donnie Wahlberg triumphantly announced midway through the performance, invoking 1989s Field Of Dreams: We fing built it, and you fing came!<br /> <br /> The massive, 25-song set list included tracks from all six of the guys full-length, non-holiday LPs (sorry bout it, Merry, Merry Christmas). And from t I (Blow Your Mind This Time) to Remix (I Like The), Joey, Danny, Jordan, Jonathan and Donnie didnt stop delivering for a hot second.<br /> <br /> Some surprise standouts included a remix of My Favorite Girl that sampled the bring the action line from will.i.am and Britney Spears Scream & Shout, a rendition of Dirty Dancing that added elements of Nellys Hot In Herre, and the closing encore mashup of Tough with Queens We Will Rock You. Honestly, though, Ive got to give it up for Step By Step, which included a Salt-N-Pepa Push It interlude in the middle. That sh still kicks, whether its 1990 or 2014.<br /> <br /> Considering the fact that last night was a Thursday and I was witnessing one of the most iconic pop groups of the late 80s and early 90s performing before my very eyes, I clearly had #TBT on the brain. You can only imagine my shock and surprise when the New Kids whipped out a block of throwback cover after throwback cover after throwback cover in the middle of their set list, including George Michaels Careless Whisper and The Isley Brothers and Princes They even took on the Backstreet Boys I Want It That Way, an act of boy band-ception that was literally everything to be quite honest.<br /> <br /> Speaking of which, not only have the two groups toured together as NKOTBSB, but the New Kids Jordan Knight has a collaboration album with Backstreets Nick Carter called Nick & Knight that will be out on September 2. Already clued in? Well, heres something you probably dont have a Google alert set to. During our pre-show interview, Jordan informed me that the lyric video for their first single together, One More Time, is dropping on July 15. I just want to make sure all the NKOTB Blockheads out there are as emotionally prepared as possible for this moment.<br /> <br /> Anyway, even more than the #TBT vibes, the most palpable feeling in the venue was the eternal love surging forth from the audience to the stage. So many people in the theater were such ride-or-die fans that its no wonder why NKOTB member Donnie Wahlberg told me in our pre-show interview: Credibility with your fans is the most important thing. If we lose our credibility with them, we have nothing. Making them happy is most important.<br /> <br /> Judging by what I witnessed that night, Id say mission accomplished.<br /> <br /> Source: <a href="http://www.mtv.com/news/1865814/new-kids-on-the-block-planet-hollywood-vegas-after-dark-concert/" target="_blank">MTV.com</a></p> <p>From <a href="http://www.nkotb.com/">www.nkotb.com</a></p>Fri, 11 Jul 2014 10:37:00 -0700http://www.nkotb.com/news/217873New Kids on the Block Party Plane: The 10 Greatest Moments From Onboard<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/newkidsontheblock/media/03/05/images/assets/medium.BRqhRaeFNJ6uh3HUCvwlK7R1BJpOKrV9c6mwqyw1MFA.jpg" /><br /><p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p>Donnie Wahlberg loves him a Bloody Mary and any chance to get on an intercom. Joey McIntyre enjoys belting out songs from "The Lion King" and, of course, fedoras. Jonathan Knight is kind of a pro at distributing inflight snacks, his brother Jordan can give one hell of an airline safety presentation and Danny Wood is one very, very fit man.<br /> <br /> All these things and more I learned yesterday, because I spent an afternoon on the New Kids on the Block Party Plane.<br /> <br /> Thats right friends, while most people were working their way through Hump Day, I was flying the friendly skies with Bostons finest, as they headed from Chicago to Las Vegas on a Southwest Airlines Party Plane, en route to their only four North American shows this year at Planet Hollywood (The same stage as Britney Spears!). And to celebrate the occasion, the boys invited some super-fans to party alongside them and enjoy some free booze. It was the most fun anyone could ever have flying without the aid of prescription drugs.<br /> <br /> Now, as a couple hundred journalists found out in Nov. of 2012, sometimes party planes are not the most fun. Super fans can be terrifying. This was not the case at all however on the New Kids on the Block Party Plane. The guys could not have been more social or hysterical, the fans more courteous, and, again, free booze!<br /> <br /> And so, I give you the 10 greatest moments from the 2014 New Kids on the Block Party Plane. Also, for anyone in or near Vegas, tickets are still available for their show this weekend, so scoop them up while you can. The boys are sounding and looking really good.<br /> <br /> See the list of greatest moments at <a href="http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop-shop/6157409/new-kids-on-the-block-party-plane-10-greatest-moments-video" target="_blank">Billboard.com</a>.</p> <p></p> <p>From <a href="http://www.nkotb.com/">www.nkotb.com</a></p>Thu, 10 Jul 2014 12:27:00 -0700http://www.nkotb.com/news/21775317 Totally Unbelievable Photos From The NKOTB Party Plane<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/newkidsontheblock/media/03/07/images/assets/medium.dQ7Zx2hWAGz5Hgl8-M0VAucUkvarL_TgUB0gMLvMCVM.jpeg" /><br /><p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p><strong>The New Kids On The Block Party Plane defied words, logic, and gravity. Heres what it was like hangin tough at 30,000 feet.</strong><br /> <br /> What happens when you combine the members of New Kids On The Block with a handful of their biggest fans and throw em all into the same aircraft hurtling toward Las Vegas? Oh, and alcohol? Youve got the right stuff and by that I mean the NKOTB Party Plane. It took flight on Wednesday, July 9, and oh my God, let me tell you all about it.<br /> <br /> Just in case youve only been listening to One Direction since you got your very first phone, allow me to old-school you: the New Kids On The Block are otherwise known as Danny Wood, Joey McIntyre, Jonathan Knight, Jordan Knight, and Donnie Wahlberg. They pretty much dominated the music charts from the late 80s and well into 90s thanks to hits like Tough and Step By Step. Theyre still a really big deal big enough to continue touring steadily (and often shirtlessly) since 2008. (Without them thered be no One Direction.) The caused the most boy band global pandemonium since The Beatles. Now, get off my lawn.<br /> <br /> Anyway, like some kind of vision manifested from my wildest #TBT dreams, the five iconic boy-banders grabbed a dozen or so lucky contest winners to hang tough on a flight from Chicago to Las Vegas for a four-night concert showcase that kicks off tonight at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood (aka where Britney Spears Britney: Piece Of Me residency is held).<br /> <br /> And oh yeah, I got to fly down with them. Suffice it to say, the experience has rendered me near-speechless, but here are the 17 most insane, ridiculous, over-the-top, fandom-exploding things that I witnessed on board.<br /> <br /> To check out the photos, head over to <a href="http://www.mtv.com/news/1864709/new-kids-on-the-block-party-plane/" target="_blank">MTV.com.</a></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p>From <a href="http://www.nkotb.com/">www.nkotb.com</a></p>Thu, 10 Jul 2014 11:27:00 -0700http://www.nkotb.com/news/217683NKOTB Party Plane!<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/newkidsontheblock/media/10/09/images/assets/medium.9Lo77FFrOGXskO2A5UvONzSYHbVe-pBUbLgNFTAIwpw.jpg" /><br /><p>Southwest Airlines and New Kids On The Block are excited to give lucky fans and a guest tickets on the NKOTB Party Plane to fly with the band this July for their exclusive engagement at The AXIS powered by Monster at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
