Get ready, ladies. The guys in New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men are bringing you their package(s) this summer.
The three ’80s-‘90s hitmakers are joining together for “The Package Tour,” launching May 31 and running through July 13.
The tour has a date penciled in for Philips Arena on June 20 (amusingly, the day before the current princes of teen heartthrob mania – One Direction – play the venue).
Tickets go on sale Feb. 2 (an American Express pre-sale begins Jan. 25) via Ticketmaster.
The tour is also cause for a new release from NKOTB, who performed a sizzling sold-out show at Philips with the Backstreet Boys in June 2011. The group will release “10” on April 2; first single, with the head-scratching title “Remix (I Like The),” arrives Jan. 28 on iTunes.
This is the first tour for 98 Degrees in 12 years. Nick Lachey noted that while the guys will concentrate on the hits, they’ll use the tour to try out some new material as well.
Meanwhile, Philly soulsters Boyz II Men, the best-selling R&B group in history, released the album “Twenty” in October 2011.
