Five members of the band joined Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck to talk about the latest release and their upcoming summer tour. The band’s new album, 10, dropped April 2 2013.
Joey McIntyre compared 10 to a concept album with a cohesive sound. He credited the producers with making the lyrics and sound come together with a Europop feel.
Depending on how you count, this is the band’s 10th album, and there is a deluxe version featuring their 2011 concert DVD at Boston’s Fenway Park.

The View: The Package Tour
Last time they were on The View in January 2013, NKOTB announced their summer 2013 tour, The Package, with fellow ‘90s bands 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men. Tour tickets were snapped up in just hours.
What does the band think keeps the fans coming back? Donnie Wahlberg said the connection the fans made in the early years has remained strong, which does not always happen.
While some people turn their backs on their teenage years and youthful pursuits, Donnie explained that the band and the fans were ready to come back together.
“We never frowned on who we were or where we came from,” he said.
