Allstate Arena | Rosemont, Illinois
Original boy band superstars New Kids On The Block are bringing two nights of pure choreographed nostalgia to Allstate Arena! On Friday 14th June 2019, the legendary group (who are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of their breakout album Hangin' Tough), will perform a block rockin' headline set with support from Salt N Pepa & Naughty by Nature!
Bursting onto the scene in 1988 with the release of "Please Don't Go Girl", from the album Hangin' Tough, American pop group New Kids On The Block formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1984. The single eventually climbed to No. 10 on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles Chart, becoming the group's first hit and the first of a record-breaking five consecutive top ten singles for the band. By the end of 1988, Hangin' Tough was at number one on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart and was certified eight-times platinum. The band's fame increased over the next two years and in 1990 the group won two American Music Awards: Favorite Pop/Rock Band, Duo, or Group and Favorite Pop/Rock Album. After releasing five albums together, the group disbanded in 1994, but after a hiatus that lasted over a decade, they secretly reunited in 2007. Over a year they covertly recorded a new album, releasing The Block in 2008. Since then, they have continued to tour and record together. The band was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2014.
