Those New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) certainly have energy as their North American reunion tour now totals 48 concerts in a little over 10 weeks with not many open dates. Kicking off with two nights in Toronto, ONT on September 18, it then goes to Montreal, QUE for a show on September 20 and heads back to Toronto for the following night. Playing mostly arenas with a few the of the obligatory casinos thrown in, the tour wraps on December 26 in Los Angeles, CA. Natasha Bedingfield is opening the entire tour.

On tour, NKOTB will be promoting their forthcoming, as yet unnamed album, due in the fall, as well as playing their old hits. The first single, “Summertime,” has already climbed the Billboard Pop 100 chart and is being streamed on their MySpace page.

NKOTB recently performed for the first time after 15 years on NBC-TV’s “Today” show to fan hysteria. They then played some radio festivals as well as the MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto.

NKOTB–Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight and Danny Wood–sold more than 70 million records and scored two up No. 1 albums: 1988’s “Hangin’ Tough” and 1990’s “Step by Step.”
