The boy bands are back in town.
New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys are coming to the Van Andel Arena on May 26.
Tickets -- $32, $52, $72 and a limited number of $92 seats – go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 11 at the Van Andel Arena box office, at Ticketmaster and Livenation.com.
NKOTB last appeared in the Van Andel Arena in April 2009. Backstreet Boys sold out the 12,000 seat arena in March 1999.
The act now known as NKOTB/BSB appeared together in November at the American Music Awards and again on New Year's on the Dick Clark/Ryan Seacrest Show on ABC-TV.
The two groups are scheduled for a North American Tour this summer.
New Kids on the Block, active in the late 1980s and early 1990s, disbanded in 1994. Backstreet Boys, on the other hand, hit the charts in 1996 with their self-titled debut album.
New Kids on the Block reunited in 2007 to record a new CD and tour in 2008, selling some 80 million records to date.
But Backstreet Boys hold the record for best-selling boy band of all time with over 130 million records sold to date.
