There's a fresh MixTape Tour coming your way from New Kids on the Block, and this one's going to be a must-see for 1990s music fans!

That's because not only are NKOTB hitting the road again on MixTape Tour 2022, they're bringing along some classic friends: Salt-N-Pepa, En Vogue and Rick Astley. And that's no rickroll!

"We had a blast out on the first MixTape Tour in 2019, and can't wait to take it to another level with our fans on the MixTape Tour 2022," New Kid Donnie Wahlberg said in a press release. "Just like a mixtape, these shows are going to take audiences through all the emotions. To be able to have Salt-N-Pepa come back and now also have the iconic and legendary Rick Astley & En Vogue join the tour… we could not be more excited. Let's GO!"

The band also appeared on "The Kelly Clarkson Show" Monday to preview the live show, and even performed.

To refresh your memory, New Kids were the boy band with all the moves behind hits like "You Got It (The Right Stuff)" and "Hangin' Tough"'; Salt-N-Pepa got us on the dance floor with "Push It," "Shoop" and "Whatta Man" featuring En Vogue, among many other tunes; En Vogue hit big with "Free Your Mind" and "Don't Let Go (Love)," while Rick Astley's biggest hit, "Never Gonna Give You Up," is not just a great song, but a classic meme!

NKOTB got the nostalgia wheels turning in 2019 with its first MixTape Tour, where the band members (Jonathan Knight, Jordan Knight, Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre and Danny Wood) went on tour with Salt-N-Pepa, Debbie Gibson, Naughty by Nature and Tiffany. That tour grossed $53.2 million and sold over 650,000 tickets.

So get ready to rock out, '90s style! Tickets go on sale at Ticketmaster on Friday.
