10-09-2018 by Brooke Sharland

If you’re an '80s Baby (or if you grew up listening to your parents' music from the '80s, like me), GET EXCITED. The 1980s Boston boyband is BACK and better than ever with an all-new tour featuring some of your other favorite pop artists from the '80s!!
The multi-platinum selling pop group New Kids On The Block announced yesterday an INCREDIBLE tour coming in Summer 2019. Not only that, but the lineup of artists on this tour is STELLAR. The MixTape Tour will include blast-from-the-past special guests, including Salt-N-Pepa, Tiffany,Debbie Gibson, and Naughty by Nature. These 5 acts will come together and take over the Summer with a 53-city tour across North America! This is definitely gonna be dope.
Not only that, but to celebrate the tour announcement, NKOTB surprised everyone by releasing an new throwback track titled “80s Baby” featuring everyone that’s coming on tour! Right off the bat, this song takes you back to all your favorite '80s hits -- even sneaking in an “867-5309” reference within the first 10 seconds! So many references to your favorite '80s artists and all the best songs and trends of the decade. It’s '80s with a 2018 twist and it’s AMAZING. Totally gets us in the mood for this tour!! Check out the lyric video below and count all the '80s references you find!
