Come again, you ask?

Entertainment Weekly just reported that New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys will be coming together in summer 2011 to tour as NKOTBSB.  As at least one of these bands probably had an immense impact on your childhood, I am sure many adults will now be as excited to see this as the younger generation would be to see the Jonas Brothers.  Just to refresh your memory, we’ve decided to pair each Backstreet Boys member to their respective New Kids on the Block member:

  • The hot young one: Nick Carter and Joey McIntyre
  • The former addict: A.J. McLean and Donnie Wahlberg
  • The one who left:  Kevin Richardson (who, as you’ll notice, is not doing the tour) and Jonathan Knight
  • The dreamboaty one:  Brian Littrell and Jordan Knight
  • The “who?” one: Howie Dorough and Danny Wood

Will you go to a concert?  Were you a New Kids on the Block fan?  A Backstreet Boys fan? …… An *NSYNC fan?!
