Fans will get a sneak peak of the concerts with the group’s first public performance together in 15 years live on NBC’s ‘TODAY’ Show on May 16. The reunion of all five members of the famed 90s group that sold millions of albums and sparked a worldwide phenomenon was enthusiastically embraced by screaming fans for band members: Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood and Jordan and Jonathan Knight.
The group split in 1994, but has recently reunited in the recording studio to create new music, working in partnership with a new record label, Interscope Records, and a cadre of world class music producers. The guys have been hard at work writing and recording for an expected new album in Fall 2008.
Fans are encouraged to sign up for more information at www.nkotb.com. The band has also teamed with I Love All Access to provide a variety of VIP ticket packages for the tour, including premium seats, meet and greets, photo ops, parties and more. For more information visit www.nkotb.com.
