BOSTON (WHDH) - The New Kids On the Block will be performing at Fenway Park next year.

The boy band that got its start in Boston made the announcement Wednesday at Fenway Park, where they signed autographs and posed for pictures with fans.

The new tour starts in the spring and they will stop at Fenway in July. Joining them on tour will be Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul.

The band said their loyal fan base in Massachusetts means a lot to them and called performing at Fenway a “dream come true.”
