New Kids On The Block stopped by Good Morning America this morning to announce The Main Event, a summer headlining tour featuring Grammy Award-winning and multiplatinum-selling artists TLC and Nelly. The tour will stop at The Palace of Auburn Hills on May 29.
NKOTB surprised viewers with a reveal of TLC and a personal message from Nelly, who is overseas with the armed forces. The groups hinted at possible collaborations and other exciting possibilities while on the road this summer. The tour, promoted by Live Nation, kicks off on May 1 in Las Vegas, Nev., and will stop in more than 30 cities across North America.
American Express card members can get advance tickets beginning 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 23. Fans will have additional opportunities to purchase tickets early starting Wednesday, Jan. 28, by signing up for a Facebook RSVP at http://smarturl.it/NKOTB_RSVP.

After announcing the tour on Good Morning America, NKOTB acted as the house band at “LIVE! with Kelly and Michael,” performing a mix of hits and fan favorites.
“We always have something special up our sleeves,” NKOTB member Donnie Wahlberg said in a media release. “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.”
