Oh Hello there Donnie!

This past weekend it was time for another NKOTB concert!! I went with Nancy again- who was with me back in '90 when we met Donnie... Her sister, Sharon, who was also there in 90 and their sister-in-law, Jess. She was barely born when we met Donnie. ;) Boys II Men and 98* opened for NKOTB. They both performed about half an hour or so. They were both great. Nick Lachey was lookin' all... Nick Lachey-ish. B2M sounded great. It was awesome.
Then it was time for NKOTB. The concert was SO.MUCH.FUN. They played their newest song, Remix from their 10 album, and a few from their other newer album, The Block- like Summertime, Dirty Dancing, and Single. But mostly they played old school favorites! They even sang Didn't I Blow Your Mind? YAY!!!!! That's takin' it waaaay back!! I also loved that they sang Games!! I always liked that song. :) They also did their pelvic thrusts that they've been doing since Hangin' Tough. It was funny because the girls and I were talking about it on the way to the concert and how I was ready the last concert to get the thrusts on video. So of course I was ready this time too. But Donnie surprised me and did like 400 right in my direction and I'm all yelling at Nancy, "I'm DYING!!!" and other stupid things that are all on video. lol

So that was a huge highlight. Our seats were also amazing!! (Thank you Nancy!!) We were on the 1st row of the lower level. We could see the center stage so great!!

FANTASTIC SEATS!! But oh, oh, oh, oh, oh... there's more. (Ha! See what I did there?)
We were screaming at Danny who was really close to us:
When I noticed Donnie coming to the stairs that were 12 seats away from me!!! Our entire row started moving down the aisle. A man there with his wife let us all pass and by the time we got to Donnie there was maybe 6 or 7 people in front me. Idk where the other people went, but we got passed them.

Guys we were soooo close. I was shaking and screaming and acting like a 14 year old dork. Only I'm not 14... Yeah... It wasn't pretty.
I also caught a streamer falling from the ceiling...
And the finale was!! They didn't do an encore they just blew it up at the end with Hangin' Tough.
It was such a fun night!! I think everyone needs to have times when they can just totally let loose and act like a silly kid again. It was all so nostalgic and the energy was high! I loved it and I can't wait for the next one!!!!
