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.
