Exciting news! (to me anyway...)


Y'all know I love my New Kids on the Block. I still have all their tapes, concert tee, sleeping bag, Donnie doll and a few videos. I heart them big time!! I've always wanted them to go on a reunion tour. Well... My own personal sources confirmed this to me a while ago, but now it is official:

New Kids on the Block planning a comeback

(Thanks Stacey for finding this pic. I saw it yesterday and couldn't find it again today!!)

Print story Email to a friend Font size:NEW YORK, April 1 (UPI) -- The once wildly popular U.S. boy band New Kids on the Block, which broke up in 1994, is planning a reunion, a source told The Boston Globe.

The group is expected to announce on the "Today" show Friday that it is getting back together.

The insider told the newspaper all five original members -- Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood and Jordan and Jonathan Knight -- have signed on for the reunion and tour is being planned.

YAY! So, tomorrow morning they'll be on The Today Show tomorrow. My dvr is set. I just hope if they go on tour that they sing their old stuff- not a bunch of new stuff. I wanna see Step by Step!! I want Hangin' Tough... I want falsettos and pelvic thrusts... ;)


AND...
DIRK is back!! After being out with an injured knee and ankle, he was back last nite. The Mavs won 111-86. Can I get a W00t W00t!?!?!?

You sure that wasn't some sort of April Fools hoax? Aren't those "Kids" approaching eligibility for Social Security by now? I swear I saw Donnie in an AARP commercial.

I will not give you any woots about _irk.

NKOTB are one of my all time favs.... They are not THAT old :) I really haven't kept up on them or even know "where they are now" so it will be interesting to see them again.

K now I am worried!

Stacey said...

There was a time where I couldn't go down stairs without breaking into the Step by Step routine.

Yeah I'm awesome.

NKOTB 4-eva!

Not only do I hope that they sing their old songs, but I hope they wear their old hair styles and clothes. Badical!

Falsettos and pelvic thrusts!
Oh man Tori ;)

I'm with Robin, they should stick to the oldies.

They are even cuter now, huh? Don't you love the way men get better looking with age? My man can wear crows feet and smile lines like it's no one's business! Me, on the other hand? Wish I could afford botox! (Not really)
