Like PopDust on Facebook

They're the reason we sing this song! New Kids on the Block are headed back out on tour this summer on what is dubbed The Main Event Tour 2015. They've got the right stuff, following two weeks of high-profile gigs and social media trending topics. "We're pretty much bringing all the hits song to you," they teased on Monday (Jan. 20) of the tour. And to make matters even more exciting, the band will be performing in a 360 degree in-the-round. That's right: you'll get to see the boys from all angles on stage! "This new production gives you the chance to see us up close and personal and for us to be close to all of our Blockheads."

TLC and Nelly will be their special guests. See a complete list of tour dates and cities below.

The Main Event Tour tickets go on pre-sale January 22—and you must be a Block Nation member to get the deal. General public tickets become available January 31, and AMEX cardholders will also have a pre-sale opportunity starting January 23. For the first-time ever, there will be a stage-side bar seating in their top shelf VIP package, which will also include the ringside exhibit featuring memorabilia from their personal collections.

For the final performance, hotels near the First Niagara Center have rooms starting at $98, almost five times the price for lodging in Vegas.
