NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK launched their massive 53-city nationwide tour last night to a SOLD OUT crowd in Cincinnati, OH. Over 13,000 screaming fans filled the U.S. Bank Arena to witness opening night of the summer’s biggest party. The MixTape Tour is the group’s biggest lineup yet, with over 3 hours of non-stop, epic performances alongside tourmates Salt-N-Pepa, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson and Naughty by Nature. Known for their legendary collaborative events, NKOTB are setting the bar with this jam-packed show, as these iconic pop and hip-hop acts hit the stage together for the first time to perform 30+ years of hits.

As the first of this ultimate lineup to take the stage, NKOTB kicked off the show delivering their trademark, multiplatinum-selling sound to the completely packed house with performances of fan favorite number one hits like “I’ll Be Loving You (Forever),” “Step By Step,” “Please Don’t Go Girl,” and “You Got It (The Right Stuff).” The all-night celebration continued as Salt-N-Pepa, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, and Naughty by Nature all hit the stage throughout the night to provide a comprehensive, hit-fueled show with over 30 songs including Tiffany’s “I Think We’re Alone Now,” Salt-N-Pepa’s “Let’s Talk About Sex” and “Push It,” Naughty by Nature’s “O.P.P.,” and Debbie Gibson’s “Only in my Dreams” – plus an incredible, not-to-be-missed performance of “Lost in Your Eyes” from Debbie Gibson & Joey McIntyre. NKOTB closed the show as only they could, bringing the house down with the chart-topping, title track off their breakout album “Hangin’ Tough” which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

With over 100 million combined records sold worldwide, NKOTB, Salt-N-Pepa, Naughty by Nature, Tiffany and Debbie Gibson are filling arenas with hit after hit when they take to the stage this summer. Always upping the ante, NKOTB have packaged the ultimate lineup for a once in a lifetime live show experience, returning to the stage after 2018’s touring hiatus to perform fan favorite number one hits. When tour mates Salt-N-Pepa, Debbie Gibson, Tiffany and Naughty by Nature hit the stage, they bring with them top chart hits and legendary catalogues to keep fans out of their seats all night. The tour is one of the can’t miss events of the summer featuring an unforgettable night full of smashes spanning across generations.

Produced by Live Nation, The MixTape Tour continues tomorrow night in Cleveland, OH, making stops in Nashville, Dallas, Los Angeles, Atlanta and more, before wrapping July 14th in Hollywood, FL.
