Beloved boy band New Kids On The Block are taking fans on tour and throwing it back to the 1980s in their new behind-the-scenes tour-diary video for the single “80s Baby”.
Filmed over the course of their “Mixtape” tour, NKOTB are celebrating all the “80s babies” who have grown up with their music and are still showing their love for the group, who have sold more than 100 million records worldwide.
In the new video, Danny Wood, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre and Donnie Wahlberg give viewers a glimpse of everything from tour rehearsals and fan encounters to onstage performances with their tourmates: Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, Salt-N-Pepa, and Naughty By Nature. The track’s bassline even comes courtesy of Naughty By Nature’s Kay Gee and features vocals by their ’80s tourmates.
“Since we got back together, it’s just been amazing to see all the love from the fans, who come back to support us,” Wood told People in a March interview. “It’s 11 years later and we’re still doing it, still having so much fun with the fans. I’m just lucky and blessed that we got a second chance to do things again.”
The “Mixtape” tour is NKOTB’s biggest and bestselling tour to date and includes a single Canadian stop in Toronto on June 19.
