“Our fans know we love to bring them a party, and this tour is no exception.” says NKOTB member Donnie Wahlberg. “It’s not just a show, it’s an experience. Paula Abdul is such a pop icon and Boyz II Men are one of the best R&B acts of all time. It’s going to be a night of hit after hit, and we can’t wait to deliver the ‘Total Package’ to our fans!”
With a combined 200 million records sold worldwide, NKOTB, Paula Abdul and Boyz II Men are primed to have the biggest party of the summer with The Total Package Tour.
