Aging teen heartthrobs the New Kids on the Block are back again for a redux of their Mixtape Tour.

The 2022 iteration of the traveling nostalgia package will include 50-plus dates, among them a Saturday, May 21 stop at San Antonio's AT&T Center. The '80s boy band last played the Alamo City in 2019 on the first incarnation of their Mixtape jaunt, which also included Salt-N-Pepa.

The hip-hop duo will return for latest version, along with Rick Astley, whose 1987 hit "Never Gonna Give You Up" got a second life in the aughts as the popular Rick Roll meme. R&B group En Vogue will round out the package.

Tickets for the SA show go on sale on Friday, October 8 at 10 a.m.
