The New Kids on the Block are going back on tour this summer with TLC and Nelly. Yep—just let that feeling of nostalgia settle in.

NKOTB announced “The Main Event” tour Tuesday on Good Morning America with the help of TLC’s Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins. Bandmember Donnie Wahlberg called the tour the “event of the year.”

“This is such a great bill and we have so many hit records and such huge followings that we just want to make it the party of the year,” Wahlberg said. The tour kicks off in Las Vegas on May 1 and will continue around the country throughout the summer.

The news comes after TLC’s announcement of a comeback with the help of Kickstarter as the duo is asking for donations from fans to fund their ‘final’ album. Thomas said on GMA that they wanted their fans to be “more involved” with the process.

Tickets for the tour go on sale Jan. 31, and pre-sale begins Friday.
