In the late 1980s and early 1990s - before Backstreet Boys or NSync were even on the map - the New Kids on the Block were stealing hearts, making hits, and selling tickets. And they’re poised to do it once again.
This morning on the Today Show, Jordan, Jonathan, Danny, Donnie, and Joey took the stage for the first time since 1994 to perform a medley of their hits, “The Right Stuff,” “Please Don’t Go Girl,” “Step by Step,” and “Hangin Tough” before launching into their new hit “Summertime.” And the nearly-3000 fans in attendance (some who waited since Wednesday) were ecstatic.
And the fun doesn’t stop there- the Boston boys will be doing couple of gigs in East Rutherford, New Jersey as well as their hometown as a warm-up for their big North American tour this fall.
In an industry where bands like the Spice Girls and the Police have had such amazing comeback tours, it looks like the New Kids on the Block are eager for their piece of the pie.
