New Kids On The Block have become the latest act to line up a series of concerts in Las Vegas.

The grown-up boy band will play four shows at The Axis in Planet Hollywood in July.

Announcing the news on Wednesday, singer Donnie Wahlberg said, “It’s central enough to everyone in the country: north, south, east, and west can all converge in Sin City with NKOTB. And we will certainly make it worth their while!”
