Blockheads get ready to 'Bring Back the Time' with the New Kids on the Block this summer!
NKOTB released a new single called 'Bring Back the Time' in anticipation of their Mixtape Tour 2022 - which kicks off on May 10. The song features fellow tourmates Rick Astley, En Vogue and Salt-N-Pepa. The video sees all of the groups performing iconic scenes from memorable videos from the 80s - including from Twisted Sister, Devo and so much more!
"It was fun to do it. That was one of the most fun things that we got to do, dressing up as those guys and tributing the iconic videos," says Donnie Wahlberg.
The boys from Boston sat down with News 12's Elisa DiStefano to discuss their upcoming tour, the new single and, of course, why Blockheads are the best fans! "Blockheads are the greatest! Everybody says they have the best fans, but we have the best fans," says Wahlberg.

So, what can we expect from the Mixtape Tour 2022? "Hopefully people can embrace that spirit [of bringing back the time] and treat themselves to a great time," says Wahlberg.
Bandmate Joey McIntyre points out that this will be their first time playing at the UBS Arena. He remembers Nassau Coliseum and the 'orange and blue for the Islanders,' though. "It's cool that there's this new arena, but there is tons of history," says McIntyre. "It's going to be fun. It's exciting."
The tour makes stops at UBS Area on June 30, Mohegan Sun on July 1 and July 2, the Hard Rock Hotel Casino in Atlantic City on July 3 and the Prudential Center on July 14.
