Talk about your boys of summer. ‘Glee’ star Matthew Morrison has announced he is postponing his summer tour schedule for a very special reason: He’s joining supergroup NKOTBSB’s tour instead! Get the download below:
Count on the stars of Glee to reprise their national tour this year, but their devoted teacher, Will Schuester won’t be among them. With his just released solo album climbing the charts, Matthew Morrison was primed to bring his own music to the masses on his first solo tour this summer. Then, his phone rang with a very special offer, indeed. He will now be joining supergroup NKOTBSB as their special guest artist on the summer leg of their North American tour.
“This was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up,” Morrison said in a prepared statement. “I am so appreciative of my fans and I’m planning to give them a great show.”
The return of New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys has been a retro dream for promoters, who are doing quite well with this first-ever teaming of the pop superstars. Morrison will join the tour on July 6 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA.
