The news will make fans swoon. Shows all across the country have been announced for the tour, including two dates at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., in late July that made a Summerfest appearance seem unlikely. And despite going on tour nearly every year since reuniting in 2008 after a 14-year hiatus, NKOTB hasn't played in Milwaukee since that year.
But the timing was apparently right. NKOTB will play new songs from forthcoming album "10," and this is the first tour for 98 Degrees, featuring Nick and Drew Lachey, in 12 years.
Tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. Feb. 23 at the Summerfest box office, Walmart stores with Ticketmaster outlets, (800) 745-3000 and Ticketmaster.com. Show time and prices have yet to be announced.
