If you missed seeing the Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block perform in “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2011 in New York City a few nights ago, you don’t have to miss it again!
The Backstreet Boys are back, this time joined with New Kids on the Block for an encore tour called NKOTBSB tour….or “boybandbananza!”
The New Kids on the Block website reports, “the extraordinary NKOTBSB tour, produced by Live Nation, begins June 2nd with confirmed shows through July 30th. Tickets to this once in a lifetime event are on-sale now with newly announced dates going on sale in select cities beginning January 11, 2011 at 10am EST at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.”
And just yesterday the groups announced adding 16 more shows for a new total of 41 confirmed concert dates across the US and Canada!
Speaking of “boy bananza,” recent pictures floating around the web have incited hate mail via twitter, aimed at Disney star Selena Gomez. After the recent release of Caribbean photos of Justin Bieber and Gomez getting friendly on a recent getaway, twitter heated up with tweets bordering on FBI crime speech.
According to SheKnows Entertainment, “Any threats given over the Internet have federal jurisdiction, which means that if the threats become more specific or are accompanied by any action that could be construed as actionable, Gomez could ask the FBI to get involved — and a conviction would mean a felony and jail time.”
