The Package Tour: New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees, Boys II Men

Comments 179 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Package Tour is a boy-band extravaganza that will be making its way to Vancouver on Wednesday, July 10th, 2013 with New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees, and Boys II Men. These “boys” have all grown up with mature looks and lyrics but they’re bound to instill a sense of nostalgia as they play the chart-topping favourites that many of us grew up with.

Multi-platinum selling artists 98 Degrees and Grammy Award winning Boyz II Men (the best-selling R&B group of all time) will be opening for the multi-platinum selling New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) who will be releasing their new album on April 2, 2013.

    I remember crushing hard on band members at different points in my life and being so moved by the catchy, soul searching love songs. So hard to choose just one favorite song but I love to listen and sing along to Backstreet Boys “As Long As You Love Me.’ Thanks for the chance to win.

    OH MY GOSH!!! Best contest ever 😀

    I loved New Kids On The Block growing up and would sing to all the Boyz 2 Men songs + my sister and I totally loved 98 degrees! My fave would have to be – The right Stuff by NKOTB. Oh and Miss 604, you`ve got `the right stuff`thanks for this chance! 🙂
