If this doesn’t set off your nostalgia button, I don’t know what will…

The members of New Kids on the Block just announced a new summer tour… And this time they’ll be joined by some of our other favorite 90s peeps: Nelly and TLC.

“There’s no stopping us!  We always have something up our sleeves,” NKOTB’s Donnie Wahlberg said during the band’s appearance on Good Morning America Monday.

“We are bringing with us the biggest girl group in the history of music — TLC,” Wahlberg added. “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. That’s why we call it The Main Event. It’s going to be the event of the year.”

The boyband was joined by TLC’s Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Box” Watkins for the big reveal.

They explained that initial idea came with both groups performed together at the Mixtape Festival in July 2013.  “We all fell in love at that time and that’s when the ideas started to brew,” NKOTB Chilli explained.  “When our manager called us, we were like ‘Hell Yeah!’  I think it’s a perfect combination.”

Tickets for The Main Event will go on sale Sat., Jan. 31. with the first show kicking pff in Las Vegas on May 1.
