Boston's boyband innovators New Kids on the Block today announced a blockbuster tour heavy on sweet, sweet nostalgia for a golden age of pop-radio. And there is an Orlando date set for next year!

NKOTB's "Mixtape Tour" seeks to approximate the preteen 1980s ritual of taping songs off the radio with a boombox live and in person, with sets from NKOTB along with Salt N Pepa, Naughty By Nature, Tiffany and Debbie Gibson.

The 'New Kids On The Block' Mixtape Tour will hit the Amway Center for a hometown show on Saturday, July 13, 2019. Tickets go on sale Friday, Oct. 12.
