The New Kids On The Block are considered the prototype of the modern boy band. Formed in 1984, they laid the quintessential foundations for future formations such as the Backstreet Boys, N*Sync and One Direction. After a solid ten-year run, the band split up in 1994 and members Joey McIntrye, Donnie Wahlberg, Mark Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight and Danny Woods all parted ways to kick off their own solo careers.
On January 27, 2008 the online issue of People magazine reported that the band was apparently planning a comeback as the official NKOTB, and the band’s website was once again back in use. Consequently, their site racked up one million hits within a week. On April 2, 2008, the long-awaited reunion was finally confirmed on NKOTB.com, alongside the release of a new album and a tour announcement. 24 years have passed since the band originally split, now the boys are back together and ready to give it another go. As if you needed more convincing to revisit the memories from your past, here are the top reasons why you should come and see New Kids on the Block live.
First of all, you never know who is going to stop by. Three years ago, thousands of screaming fans could hardly believe what was going on! Fans were in for quite a surprise. It was Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg who surprisingly visited his friends after performances by TLC, Nelly, 50 Cent and Biz Markie. This performance at Madison Square Garden was more like a reunion. The last time Mark Wahlberg and the Band were on stage together was 20 years ago.
The 2019 Mixtape Tour will feature special guest such as Salt N Pepa, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson and Naughty by Nature and there is also a possibility of NKOTB recruiting a special guest. You don’t want to miss out on this chance.
Songs such as “I’ll Be Loving You” and “Please Don’t Go Girl” brought the five boys from Boston, MA right into boy band heaven! Danny, Jordan, Joey, Donnie and Johnathan want to mix it up this time around. In broadcasting the upcoming tour Wahlberg was excited to announce a mix tape tour every night in every city. What does that mean for fans? A night of fan favorite hits that span the decades and a guaranteed blast from your past.
