Boys to men bands: Backstreet Boys, New Kids on the Block plan joint tour

Backstreet's back, all right. The four remaining members of the '90s boy band will join also-reunited male vocal group New Kids on the Block in a summer 2011 concert tour, according to Ryan Seacrest's Twitter.

"All nine boys will get together for the first time this Monday, November 8 for an exclusive in studio interview with Ryan to talk about making preparations for the upcoming tour ... ," according to RyanSeacrest.com.

(In case you're worried why former Backstreeter Kevin Richardson, who left the group in 2006, isn't involved: We suspect he's too busy with his new career, which includes playing a substance-abuse and human blood-addicted vampire in the film "The Bloody Indulgent, A Sexy Vampire Musical.")

The tour will officially be announced at the American Music Awards on Nov. 21, when the two groups will perform together. But they're both on Twitter, if you want it that way: @NKOTB and @BackstreetBoys.
