Our inner teenaged selves screamed when it was announced that New Kids On The Block are heading out on tour. Will Central New York be graced with the presence of one of the best boy bands of all time?

Well, not DIRECTLY in Central New York...but it's within a do-able driving distance for us Central New Yorkers!

New Kids On The Block are coming to Buffalo's KeyBank Center on Sunday, July 17, 2022, as part of the Mixtape Tour 2022. And, they're fully taking us back in time by bringing along Salt-N-Pepa, Rick Astley, and En Vogue. Talk about a throwback.

“We had a blast out on the first MixTape Tour in 2019, and can’t wait to take it to another level with our fans on the MixTape Tour 2022,” NKOTB singer Donnie Wahlberg said in a statement. “Just like a mixtape, these shows are going to take audiences through all the emotions. To be able to have Salt-N-Pepa come back and now also have the iconic and legendary Rick Astley and En Vogue join the tour… we could not be more excited. Let’s GO!”

Don't lie: whether you you know every NKOTB dance move by heart, want to relive the day or flash back to the days of Rick Rollin' your friends with "Never Gonna Give You Up", OR if you can't help but feel like you're part of the Salt-N-Pepa duo when you sing "Push It," there's something for every 80s and 90s kid at this show!

The Buffalo stop is not the only one in New York, but definitely the closest to us here in Central New York. The tour will also be heading to Long Island on June 30.
