Two of the world's biggest boy bands launched their joint tour in May last year. After the huge success in the US and Canada, NKOTBSB (New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys) have now announced dates in Europe, Australia and Asia.

NKOTBSB will be performing in Melbourne (twice), Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney and Perth from May 18th 29th 2012. For tickets visit Ticketek, but be quick because they're selling fast.

Where have they been?

After New Kids on the Block split up for over ten years, the group finally returned to the studio in 2008 to record their latest album 'The Block', where they teamed up with the likes of Ne-Yo, Lady Gaga, Timbaland and the Pussycat Dolls. The album debuted at number 1 in the US chart, which was shortly followed by a tour in Canada, the US, Europe and the UK. Following on from their successful comeback, the band soon announced a tour with the Backstreet Boys.

The Backstreet Boys went their separate ways in 2002 when Nick Carter pursued his solo career and A.J McLean checked into rehab to battle an alcohol and drug addiction. But after just two years the band reunited and released their comeback album.

Both bands may have had some time out of the spotlight, but they're back and are stronger than ever. Fans making their way to the tour can expect two hours of energy, amazing dancing and a fun blast from the past.
