Blame Canada … a New Kids on the Block concert tonight in Ottawa has been canceled … after several trucks carrying equipment for the NKOTB tour were held up at the Canadian border.

A rep for NKOTB”s “The Package Tour” tells our sources, several gear trucks carrying production equipment — like lighting and other prop stuff — as well as key crew members were delayed at the Canadian border for such a long time … tour officials were forced to pull the plug on tonight”s show.

The rep wouldn”t specify why the trucks were held up — but did say the band members arrived in Canada safely … and on time.

We also spoke with someone at Canadian Border Patrol … who was also looking into the incident.

As for tonight”s show … it”s been postponed to tomorrow.

Story developing …
