Backstreet Boys, New Kids on the Block to play D.C. in June

Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block announced a co-headlining tour Sunday following a joint performance at the American Music Awards.

The tour, which will kick off June 2, will come to Washington D.C.'s Verizon Center on its second night

Tickets for that show will go on sale December 11 via Live Nation and Ticketmaster. 

If you don't remember - as I didn't - the band members are: Joey McIntyre, AJ McLean, Jordan Knight, Howie Dorough, Jonathan Knight, Donnie Wahlberg, Brian Littrell, Danny Wood and Nick Carter. I'll leave you to sort out which middle-aged heartthrob belongs to which boy band. 

Full dates after the jump:

I am a huge fan of Backstreet Boys, and I am so excited about being one of the lucky people to get tickets for his concert! Awesome Boys!

The only thing I know is that I am eskimo brothers with Jordan Knight...

I. Cannot. Wait.

I can't believe I have NKOTB tickets on my Christmas list AGAIN, haha.
