New Kids on the Block headline tour with Salt-N-Pepa, Tiffany and other ‘80s favorites


Is seven months too early to start selecting the perfect ‘80s outfit?

“The Mixtape Tour” featuring New Kids on the Block, Salt-N-Pepa, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson and Naughty By Nature, doesn’t launch until May, but tickets will be on sale Oct. 12.

The lineup of ‘80s-era pop favorites will play State Farm Arena (formerly Philips Arena) at 7:30 p.m. July 11. Tickets are $29.95-$249.95 and will go on sale at 10 a.m. Oct. 12. An American Express cardmember pre-sale will take place from 10 a.m. Oct. 9 through 10 p.m. Oct. 11. All tickets are available via www.ticketmaster.com and by calling 1-800-745-3000.

In addition to the 53-city tour, the squeal-inducing lineup also gathered for a new song, appropriately called, “’80s Baby.” You can check out the song here. 

NKOTB played Atlanta in the summer of 2017 with Paula Abdul and Boyz II Men.
