It looks like it’s time to party: 1980s style. New Kids On The Block have announced the 2022 MixTape Tour, which will see supporting acts Salt-N-Pepa, Rick Astley, and En Vogue travel across the country next summer. The tour begins on May 10th, 2022 at Heritage Bank Center in Cincinnati, OH, and will run through mid-July.
After the 50-date marathon moves out of Cincinnati, the tour will continue step by step through the South before shows in San Diego, CA (5/26); Los Angeles, CA (5/27); Anaheim, CA (5/28); Fresno, CA (5/31); San Jose, CA (6/1); and Sacramento, CA (6/2), with a stop at Las Vegas, NV’s Michelob Ultra Arena sandwiched in between (5/29).
The groups will hang tough as the MixTape Tour moves through the Northwest, including a stop at Portland, OR’s Moda Center (6/5), before they push it back through the Midwest and up the East Coast. Two shows at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT (7/1, 7/2), as well as stops at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, GA (7/7) and the TD Garden in Boston, MA (7/15), will set up the tour finale where they free their minds at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. (7/23).
Tickets for the New Kids On The Block MixTape Tour go on sale Thursday, October 7th at 10 a.m. ET. Head here for a complete list of tour dates and ticket information.
New Kids On The Block, Salt-N-Pepa, and En Vogue stopped by The Kelly Clarkson show on Monday, where they performed a three-song medley in support of the tour announcement. The groups performed a three-song medley of hits, including NKOTB’s “Step by Step”, Salt-N-Pepa’s “Whatta Man”, and En Vogue’s “Hangin’ Tough”. Check out that performance and ensuing conversation below.
