With the continued and insatiable fan demand, the unstoppable phenomenon that is NKOTBSB will officially bring their show to Europe.  Kicking off in April, New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys will make stops in Ireland, the UK, France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

“Our fans want us overseas, so that is what we will do,” said New Kids’ Donnie Wahlberg.  “We have such dedicated fans, and they continue to come out for us time and time again. Our international fans have been flying to see us stateside for years, so now we are coming to them!"

“Europe is like a second home for Backstreet so we are all excited to finally be bringing this show to all our fans there. NKOTBSB is going international” added Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys.  “We can’t wait to get over there and show everyone the fun we’ve been having all summer long.”

The European leg will bring the historic NKOTBSB tour to 18 stops, giving fans across the globe chances to catch their favourite groups on one stage.  Fans overseas can finally see what North American Press hailed as “One of the hottest tickets of the summer,” as described by OK! MagazineEntertainment Weekly raved “Each tune was performed with the same energy, crotch-grabbing, and hip-thrusting that turned these groups into teens sensations years ago.  NKOTBSB may well be the tastiest musical mouthful of the summer.”

NKOTBSB first shocked and delighted fans when they took the stage together for a medley at the sold out NKOTB Radio City Music Hall show.  The two groups wowed audiences again in their first joint televised performance at the American Music Awards almost a year ago in November 2010 and have toured consistently through 2011 since coming together.  

With over 200 million albums sold between both bands, and smash hit after smash hit, these two pop sensations have dominated the music scene for over three decades. Aiming to please, these guys are giving concert goers and diehard fans everywhere the ultimate “night out” experience.


To celebrate the launch of their new single, "Get Rich in Las Vegas" on April 16th, 2012 and their debut album, self titled,  A FRIEND IN LONDON  late May, The band are excited to announce there are joining "New Kids on the Block" and the "Backstreet Boys" as support on their European / UK Tour.

For this lifetime opportunity, A FRIEND IN LONDON will release a new remix of a "New Tomorrow" in collaboration with Howie D from the Backstreet Boys. They will release this remix also on April 16th.
