New Kids on the Block + Backstreet Boys Tour Coming to St. Louis



Ladies, start practicing your bra-tossing skills: The New Kids on the Block/Backstreet Boys double bill (NKOTBSB if you're nasty) is coming to the Scottrade Center on Tuesday, July 19. (Your move, 'N Sync.) Tickets are on sale Saturday, January 15, at 11 a.m., and are $32, $52, $72 and $92. Think this is a lightweight, fluffy exercise in nostalgia? Well, sure, to a certain extent -- but it's much more than that: It's a throwback to a more innocent time in pop music. See below for video evidence of the act's pairing, complete with a Kraftwerk sample. (Seriously.)
