More NKOTB news
Thanks to Ashley for sending me the latest news on the New Kids on the Block reunion first thing this morning. Get out your crimping irons and prepare to sling your neck-less T-shirts over one shoulder -- the rumors appear to be true! This story posted on People.com:
There's a new ballad on the block. Nearly 14 years after breaking up, the '90s boy band New Kids On The Block are back with a new ballad on their official Web site. The song (its name isn't revealed) plays over a promotional video for the band that says the Kids once had it all – a $1 billion in album sales, millions of fans, with music that "influenced a generation" – but then "walked away from it all." The video next teases the a comeback, asking: "Are you ready?" The song, a source says, was recorded by all five Kids last November in Orlando.
I'm thrilled at the news. I can see my girlfriends piling up in the car for a trip to Dallas to see this show (assuming it doesn't come to Bossier City). The last time we traveled to Dallas for a concert was for Gwen Stefani and the Black Eyed Peas. It wasn't a concert I would have been dying to see, but it was a blast with a few of the girls.
Anyway, check out the Web site. Tell me what you think of the new song/promo video. I don't think it really matters how good or bad the new material may be, nostalgia is what's going to sell these concert tickets. Just look at the Spice Girls. They didn't even record new music and their tour is selling out at each stop.
In addition to the new promo video, you can check out old videos from NKOTB. One video even features Donnie cruising around on his motorcycle! Eat your hearts out ladies! And please note, in the photo posted above Donnie's acid-washed jeans are tight rolled. Honestly, what's not to love.
I think if this concert comes here, we'll have to have a contest: The tightest tight-roller wins two free tickets to the show!
