MANILA, Philippines – A boy band fever has been sweeping the local music and entertainment scene featuring a foreign act a few days leading to the back-to-back concert of New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) and Backstreet Boys (BSB) on June 3 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
Since news of the joint international tour broke out a few weeks ago, renewed public interest and attention have been triggered by the trendy pop genre that made waves in the ’80s and ’90s with the signature sounds from various groups of young musicians with refreshingly new talents and styles that inspired the boy-band phenomenon.
Two of the most successful boy bands ever, NKOTB and BSB, are out to awe millions of Pinoy fans with a once-in-a-lifetime musical treat when they perform together on one stage in one night and bring back their greatest hits that made them household words across the globe.
Billed as NKOTBSB Live In Manila!, the musical extravaganza from Ovation Productions marks the concert debut in Manila of the two legendary boy bands as a supergroup that will showcase the enduring sounds of the past generation through an array of their best-loved songs.
NKOTB will perform the chart-topping hits it has popularized since it started as a boy band in Boston, Massachusetts in 1984, such as Hangin’ Tough, You’ve Got It (The Right Stuff), I’ll Be Loving You (Forever), Cover Girl, Step By Step, and many more.
