New Kids On The Block Announce Cruise #9 In October 2017

ALL ABOARD!!!  NKOTB just announced cruise #9 will be leaving from New Orleans and sailing to Cozumel, Mexico…far far away from your worries this October!  If you thought the last cruises were insane…just wait because we’re sure NKOTB have new tricks up their sleeves to make Cruise #9 a trip you won’t forget.

This is probably the best vacation a fangirl could ask for – 4 days sailing aboard the Carnival Triumph (2 of which you’re completely trapped at sea with NKOTB), concerts on the boat, theme nights, dance parties, meet&greets ON THE BOAT, a day in Cozumel to explore, and so many more surprises that we can’t even imagine!

In case you missed “Rock The Boat” on PopTV, or just want to get really hyped about this vacation, watch the trailer for the cruise in a tweet from NKOTB below.  Fingers crossed they’ll be filming another season of “Rock The Boat” on board for those who can’t make it!

Past cruisers and BlockNation members get the first pick of cabins on the Carnival Triumph on Thursday, March 2nd starting at 10AM EST.  New Cruisers and general on sales begin Friday, March 3rd at 12 noon EST.  Click HERE to update your Rose Tours Cruise account and make sure you’re ready to #GETONDABOAT!  For more information about what’s included, what’s not, and even how to pack for the cruise, click HERE.

NKOTB Announce The Total Package Tour with Paula Abdul & Boyz II Men

It’s a known fact among fangirls that NKOTB are notoriously bad at keeping secrets.  Last week when they teased a huge announcement was going to be made on the TODAY show, it took Blockheads about 5 minutes to figure it out.  But if there is anyone worse at keeping a secret, it’s Paula Abdul.  After finishing her set at the Mixtape Festival over the Summer, she quickly told the crowd “I’m going on tour with NKOTB & Boyz II Men next year bye!”  Which left us with so many questions for Paula.  When does it start?  What venues?  When do pre-sales start?

Luckily for us, that day has come!  On the TODAY show this morning, NKOTB officially announced the “Total Package Tour” with Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul will kick off in May in Columbus, OH!   Tickets go on sale to the public on Saturday, November 19th.  Pre-sales for Blockhead members and Amex cardholders start TOMORROW, Wednesday, November 16th.

NKOTB are the absolute best at giving you all the on-sale info you could ever need.  Head over to NKOTB.com for all the info on pre-sales, VIP packages, and more.  There is even a very detailed plan of the stage to help plan your ticket buying!  And if you struggle with figuring out what “local venue time” means, they have a handy time zone converter.  (Dear NKOTB team, please teach other artists how to do on-sales, thank you.)

The tour is hitting major arenas across the US, along with stops at Fenway Park (which should be another epic show) and Hollywood Bowl.  This is Paula Abdul’s first tour in over 25 years.  She CRUSHED IT at Mixtape Festival!  And NKOTB and Boyz II Men always BRING IT each and every night.  This is one tour you do not want to miss.  Check out all of the tour dates below!
