New Kids On The Block Will No Longer Be Performing In Toronto On The Mixtape Tour

New Kids On The Block will no longer be performing in Toronto on The 2022 Mixtape Tour.

The popular boy band, composed of brothers Jonathan and Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood, took to social media on Wednesday (July 13) with a statement to the “Toronto Blockheads.”

“Due to circumstances out of our control, it is unfortunately impossible to present our show in the way it is intended,” New Kids On The Block wrote. “Therefore, we will not be able to bring the Mixtape Tour to Toronto.”

The group concluded their statement saying, “We hope to be back as soon as we can, and look forward to seeing you on the road soon.”

Produced by Live Nation, The Mixtape Tour kicked off on May 10 in Cincinnati, OH at Heritage Bank Center and continues through late July 2022, where the tour will wrap up in Washington, DC at Capital One Arena on July 23.

“We had a blast out on the first MixTape Tour in 2019, and can’t wait to take it to another level with our fans on the MixTape Tour 2022,” Donnie Wahlberg previously shared of the trek. “Just like a mixtape, these shows are going to take audiences through all the emotions. To be able to have Salt-N-Pepa come back and now also have the iconic and legendary Rick Astley & En Vogue join the tour… we could not be more excited. Let’s GO!”

The trek also features special guests Salt-N-Pepa, Rick Astley and En Vogue.

The 2022 Mixtape Tour follows the colossal commercial and critical success of NKOTB’s 2019 tour by the same name – their biggest since reuniting in 2008 – which grossed $53.2 million, sold more than 650,000 tickets and pioneered a super-sized show each night with multiple acts (Salt-N-Pepa, Tiffany, Naughty By Nature and Debbie Gibson) hitting the stage and reimagining what a special guest on a tour could look like.

New Kids On The Block take the stage each night on the MixTape Tour 2022 to perform fan favorite No. 1 hits like “Hangin’ Tough,” “I’ll Be Loving You (Forever),” and “Step By Step” while tour mates Salt-N-Pepa (“Push It,” “Shoop,” “Whatta Man”), Rick Astley (“Never Gonna Give You Up,” “Together Forever”) and En Vogue (“Don’t Let Go [Love],” “Free Your Mind,” “Give It Up, Turn It Loose,” “Hold On”) keep the party going with music that catapulted them to stardom and solidified their places in music history.
