OMG NKOTBSB!! – New Kids On The Block, Backstreet Boys To Play At Fenway

“During the dark ages of the Evil Empire before 2004, it was 2003 and I had just gotten married,” Joey McIntyre recalled. “After that Game 7 in New York, I was in the fetal position like all of Red Sox Nation, moaning and my wife said to me ‘You’re not on the team! You’re not a Red Sox!’ Well, honey, I’m a Boston Red Sox now!”

If that doesn’t get you excited for the New Kids On The Block and the Backstreet Boys playing at Fenway Park on June 6, I don’t know what will.

The two legendary boy bands announced their plans for the Fenway Park concert Wednesday at the ballpark.

“I played baseball for 13 years as a child and I think every little boy in America on a Little League field somewhere dreams to play at this park,” Brian Littrell of the Backstreet Boys said. “Little did we know we’d be singing our way here but we made it, Mom, we made it!”


If you interested in buying tickets, they will go on sale to the public on February 5 at 10 a.m. at and or by calling 800-514-3849. There will be presale tickets available to members of NKOTB’s fan club and American Express card holders on Thursday and Friday of this week, respectively.
