We're starting to see more and more concerts being announced for 2022, and I can't think of any bigger announcement than the one we just got from New Kids on the Block. If you are a child of the 80s and 90s, you have got to be excited to hear the lineup for the 2022 MixTape Tour, headlined by NKOTB. Joining them on the road next year will be Salt-N-Pepa, En Vogue, and Rick Astley. Are you kidding me?! All of these iconic acts were headlining their own shows back in the day - and now they are together on the same show!

The New Kids first introduced us to the MixTape Tour back in 2019. We didn't get the chance to see the MixTape Tour in 2020, and they're making up for lost time in a big way. Starting in May 2022, the tour will include more than 50 stops all over the country, including a few shows within driving distance of the Tri-State. Matter of fact, the first week of the tour has shows in Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Nashville, and St. Louis. Here are those specifics...

  • MAY 10, 2022 at Heritage Bank Center in Cincinnati
  • MAY 12, 2022 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis
  • MAY 13, 2022 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville
  • MAY 14, 2022 at Enterprise Center in St. Louis

New Kids on the Block founder and resident bad boy, Donnie Wahlberg about the upcoming trek...

We had a blast out on the first MixTape Tour in 2019, and can't wait to take it to another level with our fans on the MixTape Tour 2022. Just like a mixtape, these shows are going to take audiences through all the emotions. To be able to have Salt-N-Pepa come back and now also have the iconic and legendary Rick Astley & En Vogue join the tour...we could not be more excited. Let's GO!

NKOTB, along with Salt-N-Pepa and En Vogue made the big tour announcement and rocked out a sweet medley of hits on the Kelly Clarkson Show. As you can see in the video below, they definitely still got it - the right stuff. Pardon the pun, I couldn't resist.
