Always upping the ante, NKOTB has packaged the ultimate lineup for a once in a lifetime live show experience.

NKOTB made the announcement on the heels of their SOLD OUT Apollo Theater show celebrating the 30th anniversary of their hit breakout album Hangin’ Tough. The special one night only engagement sold out within minutes and saw NKOTB gracing Harlem’s famed Apollo stage for the first time since they debuted “Please Don’t Go Girl” at the Apollo’s notoriously tough amateur night. The career defining album, Hangin’ Tough produced hits like “Please Don’t Go Girl,” "You Got It (The Right Stuff)", “I'll Be Loving You (Forever)", and “Cover Girl.”
