A few weeks after announcing the extension of their reunion tour, original boy band New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) have rolled out more North American dates. The 16 additional concerts will take the vocal group coast-to-coast and through Canada, closing May 15-18 aboard the Carnival Imagination cruise to the Bahamas, departing from Miami, FL.

Some of the recently announced dates include March 18 show at the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, VA, an April 6 concert at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, IA, and an April 16 performance at Save Mart Center in Fresno, CA.

The extended trek also includes a new four-show run in Canada, beginning with a performance April 9 at MTC Centre in Winnipeg, MB, and closing April 14 at Save On Foods Memorial Centre in Victoria, BC. Two dates were previously announced for March 29 and 30 in Ontario.

Onsales for the Richmond Coliseum begin on February 6, followed by the Save Mart Center on February 7. Public sales have already begun for the rest of the tour, and the NKOTB Cruise has sold out. The three-night cruise features live performances, as well as meet-and-greet and photo opportunities.

TFL and ATBS for ticketing professionals

The five-man vocal group is touring behind the September 2008 release of comeback album “The Block.” The disc peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and was the first studio recording for NKOTB since 1994’s “Face the Music.”
