New Kids on the Block — Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood — revealed the plan for the group's summer headlining tour earlier this week on the TV show “The View.”

The multi-platinum-selling quintet also announced plans to release its new album “10” on April 2, with the first single, “Remix (I Like The),” dropping on iTunes on Jan. 28. The group has quietly spent the past six months writing and recording the album.

“Ladies, we're coming for you,” said Wahlberg in a news release. “This is going to be the craziest year yet — the single, the album, the tour with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men. … We can't wait to give fans ‘The Package!'”

Multiplatinum selling artists 98 Degrees and Grammy Award-winning Boyz II Men, the best-selling R&B group of all time, will open for NKOTB on “The Package Tour,” launching May 31 in Uncasville, Conn.

“We couldn't be more excited to join New Kids on the Block and 98 Degrees on ‘The Package Tour.' This summer is going to be fun and fans will not want to miss it,” said Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men in the release. His bandmate Wanya Morris added, “This has been in the works for a while … ‘The Package' is on its way, and we're going to deliver.” Added Nate Morris, “We plan on bringing it, mark your calendars.”
