New Kids on the Block Magic Summer Tour 2024
The iconic boy band New Kids on the Block is making a triumphant return to the stage with “The Magic Summer 2024 Tour.” Fans can prepare for a nostalgia-filled journey with this much-anticipated tour, a nod to their record-breaking stadium tour back in 1990. The band is not alone in this magical journey; they will be joined by two special guests, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Paula Abdul, who previously shared the stage with them during the Total Package Tour in 2017.
A Summer of Magic and Nostalgia
New Kids on the Block, consisting of members Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood, and brothers Jonathan and Jordan Knight, are gearing up to deliver more than 40 shows at a variety of outdoor amphitheaters and venues across North America. Their magical journey begins on June 14, 2024, at the Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, and wraps up in Noblesville, Indiana, on August 25, 2024.
For fans, this tour promises a dose of nostalgia, as the band plans to incorporate some elements from the original 1990 tour into their new production. It’s a chance for fans old and new to relive the excitement that the New Kids brought to their audiences during their prime.
Reliving the Magic of the 1990 Tour
The “Magic Summer 2024 Tour” is a reimagination of the band’s iconic 1990 tour of the same name. During that era, New Kids on the Block reached their zenith of success, selling out venues around the world and releasing chart-topping hits. Multi-night stops at legendary venues like the band’s hometown Foxboro Stadium, Dodgers Stadium, and Giants Stadium were the norm during the 1990 tour.
What set the 1990 Magic Summer Tour apart was the incorporation of magic and illusions into their performance, thanks to their collaboration with magician Harry Blackstone Jr. The band’s ability to captivate fans and the magic community with their breathtaking stage presence even earned them a magic award for their contributions to the art during the tour.
