NKOTB's Total Package Tour with Boyz II Men & Paula Abdul continues through July 16 in Florida.
Welcome to the new episode of the Billboard.com Pop Shop Podcast, Billboard's weekly audio breakdown of the Billboard charts, hottest music news and year's biggest musical events. Casual pop fans and chart junkies can hear Billboard co-director of charts Keith Caulfield and Billboard.com senior editor Katie Atkinson every Tuesday on the Pop Shop Podcast, which can be streamed on Billboard.com or downloaded in iTunes (click here to listen to the previous Tuesday’s edition of the show on Billboard.com).
Our guests on this week's show are New Kids on the Block! We chatted with four-fifths of the veteran boy band (you were missed, Donnie!) as they kicked off their Total Package Tour with Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul. We talked all about their latest all-star lineup, the best and worst parts of being on the road, and what it's like to play new songs from their Thankful EP on the tour.
