Joey McIntyre to Be a Dad Again By Michelle Tan Originally posted Tuesday July 14, 2009 06:10 PM EDT

There's going to be another new kid on the block: Joey McIntyre tells PEOPLE that his wife Barrett is expecting their second child – a boy – in December.
"I still can't get over it," says the singer, 36, who also has 20-month-old son Griffin. "We feel so blessed."
So far baby no. 2 has already managed to throw his parents for a loop. "My wife actually took the [pregnancy] test but she thought it was negative," says McIntyre. "She came out and gave me this look like, 'No.' Then she showed me the test and I said 'It's positive! What the hell?'"
Then when the proud parents, who were convinced they were having a girl, found out they were adding another boy to the brood. "We were shocked," says McIntyre, who had his daughter's name picked out. But they're hardly disappointed. "It's going to be a trip to have a couple of boys around."
Griffin is more than ready for his new brother, says McIntyre, who grew up the youngest of nine kids. Along with constantly kissing his mommy's belly, "We say to him all the time, 'Do you want us to bring home a baby?'" Griffin's response? "Please!"
The toddler has also inspired Daddy to start a book drive through the Let's Get This Foundation. While on the road, McIntyre and the rest of the New Kids have collected thousands of new children's books and distributed them to children in need in various cities.
"My wife is an avid reader and from the get-go she sat down with him and read with him. You see the importance of that," says McIntyre, who also reads to Griffin some of his favorites like Good Night, Gorilla. "Then I found out there's a lack of age-appropriate books for kids, I saw a huge void and I knew our fans could step up." McIntyre hopes to reach 25,000 children by the time the guys wrap up their tour on July 18.
But the big question remains: Will his family grow to include nine kids? "I think we have a deal to keep going until we have a girl," says McIntyre with a laugh. "That's what my wife says."

July 14, 5:28 PM .- Joey McIntyre, of New Kids on the Block, announced to People that he and his wife, Barrett, are expecting another boy in December! The couple already has one son, Griffin, 20 months. That block sure is getting bigger, as this child will mean the 90s band currently on a reunion tour will have nine kids between the five of them! McIntyre tells People that his wife took a pregnancy test but thought it was negative. "She came out and gave me this look like, 'No.' Then she showed me the test and I said 'It's positive! What the hell?'" Another surprise came later when they learned they were having a boy instead of a girl. The excited parents had a girl's name picked out but McIntyre says, "It's going to be a trip to have a couple of boys around."
The New Kids tour will wrap up on July 18 and by then McIntyre hopes to have collected 25,000 books for the foundation he started called "Let's Get This Foundation." Fans that attend the band's concert donate new and used books for children that are then distributed to children in need. McIntyre says his wife and son inspired him to create the foundation because of their love of reading. "Then I found out there's a lack of age-appropriate books for kids, I saw a huge void and I knew our fans could step up."

by Ethan Lascity Become a Fan .- So there's a new kid on the way for singer Joey McIntyre. According to People, the New Kids On The Block musician and his wife, Barrett Williams, are expecting a second baby boy in the family. Their first child, Griffin, was born in 2007. How Loving A Boy Band Shaped My Life McIntyre told People: My wife actually took the [pregnancy] test but she thought it was negative. ... She came out and gave me this look like, 'No.' Then she showed me the test and I said 'It's positive! What the hell?' While the couple told the magazine that they thought the newcomer was going to be a girl,they're actually expecting another boy. They're still hoping for girl in the future. "I think we have a deal to keep going until we have a girl. ... That's what my wife says," McIntyre, 36, told People.
McIntyre himself comes from a large family, being the youngest of nine children. But, don't expect any sibling rivalry from within the McIntyre clan. McIntyre said Griffin couldn't be more excited about the pregnancy, and shows it by kissing Williams' stomach. McIntyre and Williams have been married since 2003. McIntyre is currently on tour with NKOTB. The group released their latest album in September 2008, and their tour is wraps up this week. While on the road, the boys have been proving they have the right stuff, by collecting books for kids through the Let's Get This Foundation. McIntyre told People that his son inspired the idea. After reading to Griffin one night, McIntyre realized there was a lack of age-appropriate books for kids and called on fans to step up. McIntyre told the magazine he hopes to raise 25,000 books for the cause.

Streaming Kids BOSTON.COM Some New Kids on the Block news: The Boston boy-turned-man band’s Full Service Tour - which has been a hit with mostly 30-something women who just can’t get enough of Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre, Jordan and Jonathan Knight, and Danny Wood - will be available on demand on the Web later this month.

They got the right stuff.- The New Kids were recruited through open auditions in Boston by producer Maurice Starr who wanted to create a Caucasian version of smooth soul group New Edition, which spawned Bobby Brown. The group's first record flopped initially, but Starr came back with a more mature sound for the second album Hangin' Tough and struck gold with five top five singles. After a few heady years as one of the top-earning acts in the world, the Kids were washed away by the rise of Rap in 1994. Most of the orginal lineup reunited last year to produce a new record The Block, which has sold well. NKOTB, as they are now known, have been touring Canada and the United States for nearly a year.

Nostalgia carries New Kids on the Block at final SoCal stop July 11th, 2009, 11:24 am · 4 Comments · posted by Roxanne Hack, Web Editor!
There are few greater things in life than when a woman is made to feel like she’s 15 again — to be time-warped back to a world where the walls in her room were covered with pictures ripped out of Teen Beat, and the first true love in her life was a Kid she’d never actually met.
Thousands of 15-year-olds at heart were reminded of those simpler days Friday night at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, where New Kids on the Block — Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood and Jonathan Knight — put on another fun, bubblegum pop show, expected to be their last Southern California stop on the boy band’s wildly successful reunion tour. Almost two solid hours of hit after hit found the almost entirely female crowd on their feet and singing … no, belting along to every word.
Of course, it’s hard to ignore the fact that we actually aren’t 15 anymore. During “Cover Girl,” Donnie — who later Moonwalked in tribute to Michael Jackson — once again brought a young girl from the crowd onto the stage, something he’s been doing since tours in the early ’90s. This time, however, she was a preteen, her blue shirt covered in puffy paint — and while he serenaded the lucky gal, he threw in, “Your mom’s not that bad, either.” He knows that many original fans, those of us who sported the oversized buttons and hot-pink hats with New Kids emblazoned on them, are moms now.
nkotb0711kas17_Granted, the New Kids aren’t, well, kids anymore. Jordan, Joey, Donnie, Danny and Jon can’t hide the fact that they’re almost middle-aged and ending a long year of touring — compared to their Nokia Theatre performance just after Thanksgiving, their choreography this time around was only mostly in sync in a slow-to-start sort of set. Danny can still breakdance, Donnie can still grab his crotch inappropriately, and while Jordan undeniably still has vocal power to hit those insanely high-high notes — that last youuuuu in “I’ll Be Loving You (Forever)” was rather impressive — there were a few notes conspicuously left for the audience to tackle.
Still, it’s hard to criticize these mighty Bostonians, whose energy and connection with the crowd is as strong and inviting as it ever was. They joke around and embarrass each other (Donnie got the crowd to chant “Jon! Knight! He’s a freakin’ pimp, ya’ll!”), and even got playfully booed while reminding this Lakers-loving crowd that they’re Celtics fans.
Their element is obviously the old tunes; the quintet seemed to go through the motions during the first two songs of the night, off their comeback album The Block. But diving into “My Favorite Girl” and “You Got It (The Right Stuff)” sent NKOTB into a comfort zone — this is what they know, and this is why the fans came.
But there weren’t a whole lot of fans on hand, frankly. While earlier dates at Staples Center and Nokia were rapidly sold out, it’s clear that by now most fans who wanted to witness their return managed to do so the last time around. Not a soul was on the lawn at Verizon, and ticket-holders with seats on either side of the upper terrace only had to stay there through the two opening acts — then they were allowed to fill the empties on the upper sides of the loge.
Jabbawockeez, a dance troupe made popular by America’s Got Talent, brought the crowd into nostalgia mode with samples of “Ice Ice Baby,” “Poison” and “Baby Got Back,” while Jesse McCartney served as a bit of foreplay with choreographed moves, teasing the crowd that since he’s 22, “it’s not illegal” (wink, wink).
Yet, from the sounds of now-grown women screaming and screeching, the place could have been filled to the brim or half-empty and it wouldn’t have mattered. So many of us just came to be 15 again, to once more see in person the boys we fell in love with … and to sing along to songs whose lyrics are somehow permanently etched in our memories.

Boy band becomes men band The New Kids on the Block are older, but so are their fans.
By Ed Condran Eagle correspondent
The New Kids on the Block aren't new. They aren't kids, either. But their new album is called "The Block."Yes, the former pinups from Boston are back after a 15-year hiatus. Fans are flocking to arenas throughout the country to see if the New Kids, who are creeping toward middle age, have the right stuff. Danny Wood recently took time to talk about one of the early boy bands, which will perform tonight at Hartman Arena.
Why are you still called New Kids on the Block?
It's just the name we're associated with. It would be really foolish to call ourselves something else. The Beach Boys didn't change their name and they are hardly boys.
Are the girls still as crazy and desperate as they were for you guys 20 years ago?
I would say it's not the same. The girls are older just like we're older. They're responding to the performance as opposed to just screaming at anything like they used to.
What's the craziest thing a girl did to get close to you guys during your heyday?
I remember in South America, there were girls who were climbing on top of our van, trying to get in. We were in some crazy situations. But when we started this thing again, I said, "Do you think any of these girls will be chasing our bus?" And yes, we're in Montreal and girls are chasing our bus.
You guys are the toughest boy band, right?
Is that saying much? Are we the toughest boy band? That's ridiculous. We are from Dorchester (a gritty Boston suburb). We got bused to schools in which we were the only white kids.
When you say we ...
I mean (NKOTB) Donnie (Wahlberg), who has been my friend since the first grade. We didn't grow up rich.
But now you are, so why are you back? That goes double for Donnie, who has been doing well in films.
Donnie played us a copy of "Click Click Click." He had just finished the movie ("Righteous Kill") with Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro and he was excited about what could happen with our band. Me and Donnie have been friends for so long that I usually follow his lead, and we all got excited about the project.
Do you sound contemporary on this tour or are you going to take us back to 1989 sonically?
I would say contemporary. We have a live band behind us this time, which is so cool. We do some of the songs a bit differently. We do "The Right Stuff" with more energy. We have more production in it. We play the hits. We'd be foolish not to play the hits and, of course, we do new material as well.
There were boy bands before you guys but it felt like you guys were the prototype.
Before us there was the New Edition, who we idolized. Then there were the Jackson 5 and the Osmonds. But the thing is that so many boy bands came out after us. They all seem to follow a formula. They had to have the heartthrob, the young, cute one, the tough guy. You had all these auditions to fill slots for boy bands after us. There were only about eight guys that auditioned for New Kids. It wasn't like there was a plethora of white boys who wanted to sing and dance in a boy band. Back then, that wasn't too cool in 1986.
Why weren't you too cool to audition?
I was already pretty much there. I was break-dancing all over the city. I sang in the choir in elementary school. I just picked up where I left off. It wasn't a huge step for me to audition. I did what I had to do and the same applies today.

Around the block a few more times 02:02 PM PDT on Thursday, July 2, 2009 By ALAN SCULLEY Special to The Press-Enterprise
Say what you will about the idea of New Kids On The Block, the group that essentially paved the way for the current teen pop phenomenon, reuniting when its members are all 40 or nearing that age.But at least in reuniting, the group made a new CD, "The Block," and it reflects the fact that these guys aren't so new and definitely not kids anymore."Click Click Click," the opening song on the CD, immediately sends the message that these aren't the innocent New Kids of old, as the guys playfully sing about inviting a girl to take off her clothes and pose for photos.
"It's just natural," Joey McIntyre said of the more adult-themed material on "The Block." "That's what music is about, is exploring who you are as a person now. And we're grown men."Whether we're married or not, we're in complex relationships and consequences are different now. And I think we wrote about those. We wrote about the good times and the tough times and the harder times on this album. It just makes for a more textured piece of work, and it's been fun to do that. It just feels authentic."Of course, this still leaves the question of just how authentic it feels to see these grown men on stage singing the light romantic tunes that made up their repertoire in the late 1980s, when the New Kids drove their mostly female audience to screams.It appears a lot of people have no problem seeing the New Kids mix the innocuous songs of their youth with the more mature music of "The Block."The group's first tour last fall was an all-out success, as was another run of dates this spring.Now the New Kids -- McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Joe Knight and Danny Wood -- are playing large outdoor amphitheaters this summer, bringing what McIntyre said is a new production to these venues."We've got a brand new stage, really exciting video elements and a whole new look, which is really cool," said McIntyre, who called in for an interview."And there are a bunch of new songs that we're doing, kind of switching up some of the newer songs from our new album. Of course, we're playing all of the old hits. We've got to play all the old hits. We're lucky that we have hits to play, so we're doing that."But we always want to keep it fresh and exciting because that way it's exciting for us. If it gets stale for us, we know it's going to feel that way for the audience."
New Kids on the Block still 'hangin' tough' New Kids on the Block performed at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Maryland Heights, Mo. Wednesday night.
NKOTB's original album was released in 1986 and they remained popular through 1994. In 2008 the band reunited and began to tour again. They released their first studio album in 14 years, The Block. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums Chart and #2 on the Billboard 200 in September 2008. New Kids on the Block in St. Louis New Kids on the Block. - Dave Trinka/For BND
New Kids still inspire giddiness years later By DENISE NEIL - McClatchy Newspapers
WICHITA, Kan. -- When the New Kids on the Block were at the apex of their popularity in the early 1990s, I was just a tad too old to appreciate them. I was, after all, in high school and had moved on from embarrassing boy band obsession to even-more-embarrassing hair band obsession. (My maturity did not prevent me, however, from becoming a fan of 'N Sync in my late 20s. But that is a whole other embarrassing story.)
Over the past few weeks, though, I've come to sort of regret missing New Kids mania, especially as I've watched excitement over the group's current tour. New Kids on the Block, or NKOTB as they are just as commonly known, is a once-popular boy band whose fame was intense but somewhat short-lived in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The group's hits included danceable ditties such as "You Got It (The Right Stuff") and "Hangin' Tough." At the time, they were five fresh-faced boys from Boston, and they inspired in preteens of their time the same hyperventilating, tearful devotion that 'N Sync did almost a decade later and that the Jonas Brothers do nearly a decade after that. Now, the band members - Jonathan, Jordan, Joey, Donnie and Danny - are far from kids. Two of them are 40, and the rest are getting close. Their once-ardent fans also have grown up, but that's not stopping them from rediscovering their inner hysterical preteen selves.
They include a mother of four who has already attended several concerts along the reunion tour route and regularly announces her New Kids devotion on her Twitter account. They include 27-year-old Carly Holmes, who giddily stood in line at Wichita, Kan.'s Hartman Arena to buy tickets even though it would have been easier to order them online. And they include Krista Rapp, 33, who credits NKOTB with helping her find her best friend of more than 20 years. Krista was a middle school student when her parents spoiled her with a $100 New Kids on the Block embroidered official tour jacket. She wore it everywhere, including to band class, where she met fellow New Kids devotee Stephanie Kurdi.
The two became inseparable, and their parents agreed to drive them to New Kids' concerts all over the region. Krista estimates they went to five or six concerts in their early teen years. They're still best friends. Stephanie (who now lives in Michigan) was maid of honor in Krista's wedding. When they heard about the reunion tour, they knew what they had to do. "It all came flooding back," Krista said. "We were pitifully excited. Embarrassingly excited." In October, Krista flew to Michigan to attend a show with Stephanie. And later this week, Stephanie will board a plane to come to the Wichita show. A funny story from the Michigan concert: The friends stepped into a bar across the street from the venue before the show and quickly realized they were surrounded by women in their 30s, all wearing faded New Kids T-shirts and 1980s hairstyles. "It's fun to just relive the memories and the friendships," Krista said. "We were so giddy and so goofy."
OMG, Donnie! By Kerry Crawford-Trisler on July 2, 2009 3:12 PM Share: submit to reddit Share on Facebook StumbleUpon Toolbar
When people talk about Memphis on Twitter, it's usually with regards to one of the following things:
- how good the airport smells
- something happening in town on any given day
- someone from here telling someone else about living here
- What up, Memphis! I'm just chillin!
- how someone is driving through on their way to somewhere else
Today, though, there seems to be a single topic - people coming in town to see New Kids on the Block. Of these, I'd say about half are replies to a member of the band requesting one of the following:
- VIP passes
- how ready they are to see the show / how much they love a particular band member
Memphian Emily is going to the show tonight, and she's totally pumped about it. She's changed favorite band members over the years, though: Back then, Joey was my favorite. Probably because he was the youngest, and the others seemed almost weirdly old to me (they were maybe 15? 16?) But now, Jordan is the best. I think his song "Give It To You" sealed the deal for me on that one. I was too young to get into NKOTB the first time around, so I won't be making the show. If you are going, have fun - it's supposed to be a really nice night.

We wrote about the good times and the tough times and the harder times on this album. It just makes for a more textured piece of work, and it’s been fun to do that. It just feels authentic.” Of course, this still leaves the question of just how authentic it feels to see these grown men on stage singing the light romantic tunes that made up their repertoire in the late-1980s when the New Kids drove its mostly female audience to the kind of scream-filled reactions not seen since the Beatles were touring in the early 1960s.
It appears a lot of people have no problem seeing the New Kids mixing in the innocuous songs of their youth in with the more mature music they created for “The Block.” The group’s first tour last fall was an all-out success, as was another run of dates this spring. Now the New Kids — McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Joe Knight and Danny Wood — are playing large outdoor amphitheaters this summer, bringing what McIntyre said is a new production to these venues. “We’ve got a brand new stage, really exciting video elements and a whole new look, which is really cool,” said McIntyre, who called in for a late-May phone interview. “And there are a bunch of new songs that we’re doing, kind of switching up some of the newer songs from our new album. Of course, we’re playing all of the old hits. We’ve got to play all the old hits. We’re lucky that we have hits to play, so we’re doing that. But we always want to keep it fresh and exciting because that way it’s exciting for us. If it gets stale for us, we know it’s going to feel that way for the audience.”
That the New Kids on the Block are together to even try to stay fresh and exciting is something that few would have expected just a few years ago. The group, which sold a combined 80 million copies of its four albums worldwide — with 1988’s “Hangin’ Tough” and 1990’s “Step By Step” leading the way — had received many big-money offers to reunite since. But those were turned down, with Wahlberg often credited as the New Kid who balked at these opportunities. Wahlberg, in his post-New Kids life, had enjoyed a successful acting career, with roles in such high-profile films as “Ransom” and “The Sixth Sense.” He had consistently maintained he wouldn’t do a New Kids reunion simply for the money. There had to be a legitimate musical-creative reason for the group to exist again. That incentive came into play when Wahlberg was given a recording of the song “Click, Click, Click,” which was penned by an up-to-then unknown artist named Nazeree. Wahlberg thought the breezy, hip-hop-laced ballad was just the kind of song the New Kids would do.
He presented the song to the other New Kids, and they decided to see if they could make viable music again. The music on “The Block” certainly has its parallels to the sound the New Kids established in the late 1980s. As before, it’s an upbeat mix of dance-ready uptempo tracks (like “Big Girl Now” and “Lights, Camera, Action”) and soul-edged (and yes, romantic) ballads (such as “Single” and “In The Morning”), although the sound gets a contemporary sheen that reflects the development in hip-hop-styled beats and production. “It’s connected in a way that we didn’t abandon the overall sensibility of the New Kids,” McIntyre said when asked how the new music compared and contrasted to the group’s late ‘80s sound. “We didn’t try to be someone else. We wanted to sing songs that had great melodies. You know, when we get together and we put our voices on a record, it’s a New Kids song. And that’s cool. “It’s cool that we have sort of a sound and a vibe. But yeah, I think it’s positive,” he added. “I think the new album is not a huge departure, but it definitely reflects the fact that 14 years have passed.

Donnie Wahlberg entrevista en MTV Jun 30 2009 1:23 PM EDT NKOTB's Donnie Wahlberg On Michael Jackson's 'Chain Of Influence''
There's no artist today who wasn't impacted by Michael Jackson,' Wahlberg says. (By Jocelyn Vena) Video
MTV Shows.- New Kids on the Block probably wouldn't have existed without The Jackson 5, and that is a statement that New Kid Donnie Wahlberg won't argue against. The Jackson 5, in many respects, laid the groundwork for bands like New Edition, NKOTB, the Backstreet Boys and 'NSYNC. "Michael Jackson was the first musical artist that I looked up to, aspired to be like," Wahlberg said. "He was the first person to ever really inspire me to dream to what's bigger than what was in front of me." He explained that there's a clear line drawn from the Jackson 5 to the New Kids on the Block. "There's an obvious chain of influence there," he said. "There's always someone who sets the bar. ... Michael Jackson was a child and he was a superstar. Rather than kids across America and across the world looking at adults performing, they were looking at someone like them performing. You could become like Michael Jackson ... suddenly the whole playing field changed."
He continued that "from the Jackson 5's influence on New Kids on the Block, his personal influence on me to his personal influence on other members on the group" has been substantial. According to Wahlberg, It's been equally substantial on a number of other artists making music today. "I defy anyone to find an artist today who's out there making music who's not somehow influenced by Michael Jackson," he said. "There's no artist today who wasn't impacted by Michael Jackson. It's his swagger."

Couple of questions came up about why we are only collecting new books. There are a lot of “gentley used” and “like new books” out there that could certainly be a deserving part of a home book shelf. However, for a book drive like this, we wanted to keep it simple. The turn around for the books being collected and picked up is less than 24 hours. We want to be sure right away that all these books are ready to go and ready to get into the hands of a child that can call it their own. There is something about being the first pair of little hands to open up a beautiful new book. It special for that child. I think it reinforces the relationship of that child with the book and the amazing journey they are about to share.
Just thought I say a few words about that. I never thought we’d even think of coming close to 20 thousand new books, but now I’m dreaming of 25 thousand :) !!!! Let’s keep it going, guys! Let’s coral this! Let’s elevate this! Let’s GET this!!!

New Kids channel Jackson, '80s : Concert review By Chris Varias • Enquirer contributor • June 28, 2009
Of all of the girly-girl concerts that have come through Riverbend – and there have been plenty in the last few years, whether it’s Tim McGraw, Coldplay or the Jonas Brothers – Saturday night’s New Kids on the Block reunion show has to be the girliest of them all. The reunited singing and dancing quintet brought down a roughly ¾-filled house as if it were the late-‘80s, when the New Kids were pioneering the white-R&B brand of the boy-band thing during their first go-around. Last year the group released “The Block,” its first album of new material in 14 years, and it’s marked with a more sophisticated sound that’s to be expected of guys – Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood, and brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight – who now are in or are approaching their 40s. Joey McIntyre is the baby at 36.
Their nearly two-hour set mixed tunes from “The Block” with 20-year-old hit ballads and up-tempo anthems. It meshed well, and nobody in the crowd ever chose to sit down. McIntyre took a solo turn at the piano for a new song called “Five Brothers and a Million Sisters,” which celebrates the ongoing success of the reunion in terms of a performer-audience partnership. The numbers in the title seem accurate. Several thousand of those million sisters were at Riverbend. Most were probably in there 30s, along with a scattering of ladies who could be a New Kid mom and girls who could be a daughter. Dudes were scarce. The audience was rewarded time and again with the New Kids’ scream-inducing go-to maneuvers. These included various crotch-related activities – thrusting, grabbing, etc. – and the removal of suit jackets and dress shirts to get to the coveted undershirt. You didn’t need to be a sociologist to be captivated by grown-ups in the crowd reverting to their screamy-and-sobby teenage selves. Some of these women probably have mortgages, meaningful jobs, aging parents, and children of their own. So it was nice to see them shedding tears over the things that are truly important in life, such as Jonathan Knight doing a knee-drop for the finale of the 1988 ballad “Please Don’t Go Girl.”
While most of the ballads effectively hit home with the crowd in a similar emotion-laden manner, it was the up-tempo stuff that carried the show. “You Got It (The Right Stuff)” and “Hangin’ Tough” were the bookends for the set, and in between came, among others, new ones called “Dirty Dancing” (“It’s so crazy, she’s like Baby, I’m like Swayze,” they sang) and “Single,” during which the guys ran into the crowd and sang from different locations in the pavilion.
They also took care of a piece of business that seemed inevitable. In an interview with the Enquirer last week, McIntyre named the Jackson Five as an influence on his band, and in the wake of Michael Jackson’s death two days earlier, a tribute at the show was a sure bet. The New Kids left the stage halfway through the show as a montage of Jackson photographs played on the video screen and the four-piece backing band performed Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror.” The New Kids returned, and Wahlberg introduced a sped-up rendition of the Jackson Five’s “I’ll Be There,” saying: “We’re gonna take three minutes and celebrate a man who inspired us and so many other people.” Later, Walhberg busted out some of Michael’s dance moves, including a pretty good moonwalk, as the band played “Billie Jean.” http://news.cincinnati.com/
New Kids still inspire giddiness years later .-When the New Kids on the Block were at the apex of their popularity in the early 1990s, I was just a tad too old to appreciate them. I was, after all, in high school and had moved on from embarrassing boy band obsession to even-more-embarrassing hair band obsession. (My maturity did not prevent me, however, from becoming a fan of 'N Sync in my late 20s. But that is a whole other embarrassing story.)
Over the past few weeks, though, I've come to sort of regret missing New Kids mania, especially as I've watched excitement over the group's show Friday at Hartman Arena completely overtake a fun group of women who are only slightly younger than I am. New Kids on the Block, or NKOTB as they are just as commonly known, is a once-popular boy band whose fame was intense but somewhat short-lived in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The group's hits included danceable ditties such as "You Got It (The Right Stuff") and "Hangin' Tough."
At they time, they were five fresh-faced boys from Boston, and they inspired in preteens of their time the same hyperventilating, tearful devotion that 'N Sync did almost a decade later and that the Jonas Brothers do nearly a decade after that. Now, the band members — Jonathan, Jordan, Joey, Donnie and Danny — are far from kids. Two of them are 40, and the rest are getting close. Their once-ardent fans also have grown up, but that's not stopping them from rediscovering their inner hysterical preteen selves. They include a local mother of four who has already attended several concerts along the reunion tour route and regularly announces her New Kids devotion on her Twitter account.
They include 27-year-old Carly Holmes, who giddily stood in line at Hartman Arena to buy tickets even though it would have been easier to order them online. And they include Krista Rapp, 33, who credits NKOTB with helping her find her best friend of more than 20 years. Krista was a Curtis Middle School student when her parents spoiled her with a $100 New Kids on the Block embroidered official tour jacket. She wore it everywhere, including to band class, where she met fellow New Kids devotee Stephanie Kurdi. The two became inseparable, and their parents agreed to drive them to New Kids' concerts all over the region. Krista estimates they went to five or six concerts in their early teen years. They're still best friends. Stephanie (who now lives in Michigan) was maid of honor in Krista's wedding. When they heard about the reunion tour, they knew what they had to do. "It all came flooding back," Krista said. "We were pitifully excited. Embarrassingly excited."
In October, Krista flew to Michigan to attend a show with Stephanie. And later this week, Stephanie will board a plane to come to the Wichita show. A funny story from the Michigan concert: The friends stepped into a bar across the street from the venue before the show and quickly realized that they were surrounded by women in their 30s, all wearing faded New Kids T-shirts and 1980s hairstyles. "It's fun to just relive the memories and the friendships," Krista said. "We were so giddy and so goofy." Denise Neil

Michael Jackson was, without a doubt, the single most amazing performer that I've ever seen. As a young teenage boy with a dream- he was beyond inspirational. The fact that his public/private life became a soap opera and a sideshow is more of a reflection of our societies misplaced priorities than it is a reflection of the type of person that he may have been. Yet despite all of that- the fact that his performances, even of even 25 years ago, still resonate today….. THAT is a true testament to his greatness. ~dw

* NKOTB At The Montreal Virgin Fest, No Akon.. New Kids On The Block Headline A Night When Akon Cancels © Jose Espinoza
Jun 21, 2009 New Kids On The Block, Sandra NG Fuk Chong
The second day of the Montreal Virgin Festival was marked by the absence of best selling artist Akon, and the crowd pleasing performance from New Kids On The Block. As the doors opened on the second day at the Montreal Virgin Festival, there were more spectators on the site than on Friday and also more virgin employees, who it seemed were getting ready preparing for the crowd expected at night. As the evening fell on the festival, crowds could be heard chanting Akon songs or wearing the old school New Kids On The Block t-shirts. As the organizers expected, an enormous crowd emerged to see the pop legend headliners, New Kids on The Block. There was a visible divide between the spectators that came to see Akon which were younger, and the spectators that came for NKOTB, who were generally older. The organizers kept pushing the organization, Virgin Unite, which would receive proceeds from the festival but there was a lack of information on the charity for the general spectators. The biggest news on Saturday at the festival, came at around 7:15pm when it was announced that Akon would not be performing.
New Kids On The Block at The Montreal Virgin Festival The New Kids on the block gave an incredible set and were the best performers at the festival on Saturday. Their energy could be felt from the start of the show when they involved the crowd with singing the chorus and some special pyrotechnics. The older crowd got involved and made the show something special. In the middle of their set, Donnie Wahlberg lunged into the crowd and started walking among the fans. He then grabbed a Canadian flag and brought it on stage and gave a strong thank you for all the Canadian fans. NKOTB gave a great show and did what all artist shouls strive to do in all their concerts, which is to give the fans a unique and unforgettable experience.

* NKOTB can still draw fans By JASON MACNEIL, SPECIAL TO SUN MEDIA Last Updated: 22nd June 2009, 5:46am
About halfway through their show at the two-thirds full Molson Amphitheatre Sunday night, New Kids On The Block member Donnie Wahlberg quizzically picked up a roll of toilet paper tossed on stage. "I spent a lot of time in Canada but I don't know what toilet paper means," he said. For those who despise the '80s boy band and their reunion trek, currently called the Full Service tour, the connotations are endless. Perhaps it was a reference to Australian concert promoter Michael Chugg, who when told the band nixed an August Australian tour due to the global recession, said: "New Kids On The Block was very big years ago...no one really gives a s--- about them now." Whatever the case, the almost entirely female audience clung to every word said and song the band played over the nearly two-hour set beginning with Full Service featuring some Nickelback-lite pyrotechnics and all five members dressed in grey suits. Although it was a year ago to the night when the band - Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, Danny Wood and Joey McIntyre - made their highly-anticipated performance at the MuchMusic Video Awards, early on it looked like they were showing the wear and tear of a reunion tour which began in Toronto last September. Summertime and My Favorite Girl were average at best but the quintet slowly fed off the energy and continuous estrogen-charged screams. Supported by four female dancers and a tight band (two of whom are Canadian), New Kids On The Block mixed a good dose of songs from The Block alongside older, sappy ballads such as Didn't I (Blow Your Mind) and Please Don't Go Girl. McIntyre steered the latter tune, performing the closing lines on his knees which the audience ate up and then quickly instructing a girl in the front to "get down, get down" as she tried to scale a barrier.
Wahlberg, McIntyre and Jordan Knight took most of the lead vocals for most of the night, with Wood content to do a bit of break dancing during the hokey hip-hop effort Games. Meanwhile Jonathan "Mr. Sauve" Knight cracked McIntyre up during One Song, leaving his spot at the microphone to playfully toss a beach ball off a fan's head twice.fter Single which saw the five on individual platforms in the middle of the audience, the show fell off the rails for a while as three each took a solo number. Cover Girl had Wahlberg wearing a Leafs jersey and suggestively changing one lyric while McIntyre encouraged fans to sing with conviction "Joey Joe you're my popsicle" during, er, Popsicle. The homestretch began thankfully with Tonight, a nice little Beatles-saturated number which righted the musical ship. The group even altered the rather rigid set list to perform 2 In The Morning as they sat side by side on one of the two stage walkways. But Big Girl Now wasn't done despite Lady GaGa being in town for the MMVAs.
Closing the show with Step By Step and Hangin' Tough, New Kids On The Block showed they can still draw fans. Hopefully they'll hang it up before Hangin' Tough sounds more like Saggin' Limply.

* NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK Following the media sensation that revealed their official reunion last year, NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK released their new album titled The Block. The band has since returned to the world stage, and are slated to return to Montreal’s first Virgin Festival! The group split in 1994, but has recently reunited in the recording studio to create new music, working in partnership with a new record label, Interscope Records, and a cadre of world class music producers. A phenomenal fan base has always been one of the cornerstones of the group’s success. New Kids On The Block sold more than 80 million albums worldwide -- including back-to-back international #1 songs, 1988’s Hangin’ Tough and 1990’s Step By Step -- and a series of crossover smash R&B, pop hits like “You Got It (The Right Stuff),” “Cover Girl,” “Didn’t I (Blow Your Mind This Time),”“I’ll Be Loving You” and “Tonight.” The group shattered concert box office records playing an estimated 200 concerts a year, in sold out stadiums throughout the world. They still hold many of these records to date. They were Forbes highest paid entertainers of 1990, beating out Michael Jackson and Madonna. The band boasted an extensive and highly profitable merchandise line which included everything from lunch boxes and sleeping bags to comic books, marbles and dolls.

Nancy Hall: Backstreet Boys hoping to follow in New Kids' footsteps By NANCY HALL
For The Norwich Bulletin Posted Jun 17, 2009 @ 11:07 AM
Tonight New Kids on the Block will perform at Mohegan Sun Arena for the third time on their continuing reunion tour, and as a huge fan (and someone who has seen the first two shows), I can say with confidence you do not want to miss this concert. The New Kids have managed to capture a perfect balance between old and new, and know not to take themselves too seriously. This gives older fans a chance to see all the songs they loved growing up merged seamlessly with the songs off their new album, “The Block.” And the genius move of joining forces with Timbaland, Pussycat Dolls and Neyo for the CD has given them a whole new generation of fans who are screaming just as loud as the old ones.
But as the New Kids continue to ride high on this recaptured fame, are other boy bands trying to follow suit? The newest single from the Backstreet Boys shows this might be the case. The Boys, who are down to four members after the departure of Kevin Richardson in 2006, are back in the studio and changing their sound. from 2005-08, the Boys were releasing a string of piano-driven power ballads like, “Incomplete,” “Inconsolable” and “Helpless When She Smiles.” The songs were typically played on adult contemporary radio and didn’t really add to the success of their heyday. For their seventh studio album, the Backstreet Boys are working with RedOne, Pitbull, Akon and more to capture more of a pop/R&B urban sound. And in an effort to prove to listeners this is their sound and style they have named the CD, “This Is Us.” Several tracks from the album have already leaked on the internet, including what could be their first official single, “Helpless,” with rapper Pitbull. On first listen it’s actually hard to believe it is the Backstreet Boys, but some felt that way about the recent New Kids material as well.
Perhaps what worked for one group can do the same for another, but only time will tell. BSB are not expected to released a single until August and the full album could take until fall to drop. Nancy Hall is on air at Q105 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays. E-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.norwichbulletin.com/

Recesión empieza a hacerse sentir en el mercado de la música New Kids On The Block cancelan gira por crisis. New Kids On The Block no pasan por un buen momento.- La industria de la música empieza a verse afectada por los efectos negativos de la crisis mundial, la resucitada banda New Kids On The Block se vio obligada a cancelar su gira australiana debido a la poca venta de entradas para sus shows, según dicen por la desaceleración económica mundial. "Sólo podemos asegurarles que cuando el efecto de la recesión en las economías del mundo ceda un poco, encontraremos una manera de hacer que esto funcione", dijeron los New Kids On The Block disculpándose por haber suspendido su tour en Australia que era parte del regreso de los divos de los ochenta a los escenarios.
Donnie Wahlberg, uno de los miembros de la otrora exitosa banda, dijo en un mensaje publicado en el sitio web del grupo que habían "agotado todas las vías" para llevar a cabo la gira, pero que ésta había resultado ser "demasiado compleja" según informa hoy Reuters. "Estamos, de hecho, en medio de una recesión mundial y no podemos hacerla funcionar", expresó Wahlberg evitando hablar del tema de la baja venta de entradas que obligaron a tomar esa decisión. Esto significa un duro golpe en la historia del grupo que en su momento llegó a vender más de 70 millones de discos, que impulsaron giras millonarias en todo el orbe. Wahlberg agregó también que el grupo estaba "entristecido" por tener que cancelar la gira que estaba programada para agosto debido a que Australia "siempre, siempre, ha sido uno de nuestros lugares favoritos para viajar".
"Sólo podemos asegurarles que cuando el efecto de la recesión en las economías del mundo ceda un poco (...) encontraremos una manera de hacer que esto funcione", finalizó el cantante. http://www.terra.com.pe/terrastereo/articulo/html/mus8200.htm
New Kids On The Block cancela gira australiana por recesión.- SIDNEY (Reuters) - La resucitada banda New Kids On The Block canceló una gira planeada por Australia, culpando a la desaceleración económica mundial en medio de reportes sobre bajas ventas de entradas. Donnie Wahlberg, uno de los miembros emblemáticos de la exitosa banda de la década de 1980, dijo en un mensaje publicado en el sitio web del grupo que habían "agotado todas las vías" para llevar a cabo la gira, pero que ésta había resultado ser "demasiado compleja". "Estamos, de hecho, en medio de una recesión mundial y no podemos hacerla funcionar", expresó Wahlberg sin referirse a reportes de que la baja venta de entradas había llevado a la decisión. El grupo estadounidense, formado cuando sus cinco miembros eran adolescentes, vendió más de 70 millones de discos con éxitos como "You Got It (The Right Stuff)" y "I'll Be Loving You", antes de separarse en 1994.
Pero el grupo volvió a reunirse el año pasado y grabó su primer disco en 14 años, "The Block", antes de embarcarse en una gira mundial. La banda actualmente recorre Estados Unidos y Canadá. Wahlberg dijo que el grupo estaba "entristecido" por tener que cancelar la gira que estaba programada para agosto debido a que Australia "siempre, siempre, ha sido uno de nuestros lugares favoritos para viajar".

AU no more on NKOTB's tour :( Monday, June 15th, 2009 From Donnie ( http://nkotb.com/blog/2009/06/from-donnie/ )Hey All- In response to so many of the Aussie fans amazing efforts and the collecting of signatures of thousands- our promoters, as well as our management team, worked incredibly hard to make an Australian tour a reality…. Despite warnings that the financial problems plaguing the world would compromise the Australian tour- they never gave up on this dream and neither did we.
However- I’m sorry to say that now- it is true. We are not going to Australia. Like many of our fans down under- we too are saddened. Australia has always, ALWAYS, been one of our favorite places to travel to. And quite honestly- we tried very hard to make it work.
However- we are, in fact, in the middle of a worldwide recession and we just cannot make it work. That is the simple truth. We have exhausted efforts to tie in the Far East to Australia and find other creative ways to make this work… It is just too complex at this time. We can only assure you that when the recession’s stranglehold on the world’s economies eases up a bit- we will find a way to make this work. Thank you for understanding and please trust- that we will do all we can to continue to give The Fullest Of Service to all of our amazing fans WORLDWIDE. As Always Your Man, Donnie W.
PS- The Party Is Not Over!!!!!!!!!!

New Kids on the Block sue to protect name N.Y. co. eyed group trademark By Thomas Grillo http://news.bostonherald.com/
Saturday, June 13, 2009 - Added 56m ago / BLOCKING MOVE: Boston’s New Kids on the Block, shown here during their reunion tour last year, claim in a lawsuit that a New York production company tried to trademark its name and give it to another band. The New Kids on the Block are suing a production company alleging it attempted to trademark the boy band’s name and extort an undisclosed amount of cash to get it back.
In a suit filed in U.S. District Court in New York, NKOTB Inc. also contends that New York-based SM Productions intended to use the New Kids moniker to launch a new boy band with the same name. The suit claims SM Productions wanted to register the band’s name and album art from “Hangin’ Tough” with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office so it could record music with its group and pass it off as the original band.
The New Kids are asking a judge to declare the original New Kids as the sole owner of the trademarks and “goodwill” associated with the band that sold more than 80 million albums worldwide in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The “boys” - Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood - are now pushing 40. They reunited last year, two decades after the release of their first multiplatinum album, to put out a new CD titled “The Block” and embark on a concert tour. “The fan response to this has been incredible,” band member Donnie Wahlberg told the Boston Herald last spring.
New Kids on the Block Sue Over the Rights Stuff Posted Jun 12th 2009 1:15AM by TMZ Staff.- The last thing the world needs is another New Kids on the Block -- which is exactly why the band is suing someone for allegedly trying to form a fake New Kids on the Block.new kids on the block NKOTB just filed a Federal lawsuit against a company called SM Productions, that in 2005 allegedly attempted "to form a new group also entitled 'New Kids on the Block'" -- so SMP could record music with a band that people thought were the real deal. The suit also says SMP tried to register the band's name and album art from "Hangin' Tough" with the U.S Patents and Trademark Office. NKOTB is suing because they want the court to officially tell everyone that the NKOTB name belongs to NKOTB and NKOTB only (say that a few times fast).
* Notas sobre nuestros Kids ;)
1.-Hearts still throb for Kids ( http://www.timeslea der.com/ )
It was a real girls’ night out as the reunited New Kids On The Block kicked off the summer-concert season Wednesday night at the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain. The former boy band from Boston delighted a gathering of girls of all ages with a non-stop explosion of sights and sounds, deftly mixing past favorites and tunes from their 2008 comeback album “The Block.”
Although the crowd was somewhat small (the lawn area was closed off, and patrons with lawn tickets were given upgrades), it was very enthusiastic as a never-ending series of screams showered the five singers throughout the performance. Taking the stage in matching silver suits, Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight and Danny Wood opened with “Full Service.” Another new song, “Summertime,” quickly followed.
Then came some old favorites as the quintet launched into “My Favorite Girl,” a sing-along version of “You Got It (The Right Stuff),” “Didn’t I (Blow Your Mind)” and “Please Don’t Go Girl.” The show was a feast for the eyes as well as the ears from the very beginning as the giant screen displayed childhood photos of the guys, then clips of the videos from their late-1980s, early-1990s heyday as the anticipation built. Each song came with an impressive array of colorful lights, and the screen was used to good effect whether displaying song lyrics, Web addresses or live shots of the group and the frenzied fans. The group did a great job alternating between the new songs and the old hits, and it was hard to tell one from the other as the crowd embraced each with the same excitement.
Midway through the show, Wahlberg, McIntyre and Jordan Knight each took solo turns in the spotlight, highlighted by McIntyre’s new autobiographical song “5 Brothers and a Million Sisters.” All five then reappeared for “Tonight,” “Click Click Click” and a great rendition of “I’ll Be Loving You (Forever),” which was a veritable vocal showcase for Jordan Knight. The main set ended with “One Song” and “Step By Step,” which became another scream-along as the masses spelled out their idols’ five-step program.
The five singers then joined hands, bowed and exited before reappearing in Boston Red Sox jerseys and baggy shorts for a rousing rendition of “Hangin’ Tough,” which incorporated a portion of Queen’s “We Will Rock You.” The show was opened by a masked dance troupe called Jabbawockeez, who led a 1980s dance party while grooving to snippets of tunes such as “Somebody’s Watching Me,” “Ice Ice Baby” and Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison.” Other highlights of their 20-minute routine included an homage to the New Kids with “You Got It (The Right Stuff)” and a funny re-creation of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” dance. Another former teen idol, Jesse McCartney (who just turned 22 in April), followed with a well-received, nine-song set that culminated with his upcoming single “Body Language.”
2.- Nota de pittsburghlive.com .- Say what you will about the idea of New Kids on the Block -- the group that essentially paved the way for the current teen pop phenomenon -- reuniting when its members are all 40 or nearing that age. But at least in reuniting, the group made a new CD, "The Block," and it reflects the fact that these guys aren't so new and definitely not kids anymore. "Click Click Click," the opening song on the CD, immediately sends the message that these aren't the innocent New Kids, as the guys playfully sing about inviting a girl to take off her clothes and pose for photos.
"It's just natural," Joey McIntyre says of the more adult-themed material on "The Block." "That's what music is about, is exploring who you are as a person now. And we're grown men. Whether we're married or not, we're in complex relationships, and consequences are different now. And I think we wrote about those. We wrote about the good times and the tough times and the harder times on this album. It just makes for a more textured piece of work, and it's been fun to do that. It just feels authentic." Of course, this still leaves the question of just how authentic it feels to see these grown men onstage singing the light romantic tunes that made up their repertoire in the late-1980s when the New Kids drove its mostly female audience to the kind of scream-filled reactions not seen since the Beatles were touring in the early 1960s. It appears a lot of people have no problem seeing the New Kids mixing in the innocuous songs of their youth with the more mature music they created for "The Block." The group's first tour last fall was an all-out success, as was another run of dates this spring.
Now the New Kids -- McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight and Danny Wood -- are playing large outdoor amphitheaters this summer, bringing what McIntyre says is a new production to these venues. The tour comes to the Post-Gazette Pavilion in Burgettstown on Thursday. "We've got a brand-new stage, really exciting video elements and a whole new look, which is really cool," McIntyre says. "And there are a bunch of new songs that we're doing, kind of switching up some of the newer songs from our new album. Of course, we're playing all of the old hits. We've got to play all the old hits. We're lucky that we have hits to play, so we're doing that. But we always want to keep it fresh and exciting, because that way it's exciting for us. If it gets stale for us, we know it's going to feel that way for the audience." That the New Kids on the Block are together to even try to stay fresh and exciting is something that few would have expected just a few years ago.
The group, which sold a combined 80 million copies of its four albums worldwide -- with 1988's "Hangin' Tough" and 1990's "Step By Step" leading the way -- received many big-money offers to reunite during the 14 years they were apart. But those were turned down, with Wahlberg often credited as the New Kid who balked at these opportunities. Wahlberg, in his post-New Kids life, enjoyed a successful acting career, with roles in such high-profile films as "Ransom" and "The Sixth Sense." He consistently maintained he wouldn't do a New Kids reunion simply for the money. There had to be a legitimate musical and creative reason for the group to exist again.
That incentive came into play when Wahlberg was given a recording of the song "Click Click Click," which was penned by an up-to-then unknown artist named Nazeree. Wahlberg thought the breezy, hip-hop-laced ballad was just the kind of song the New Kids would do. He presented the song to the other New Kids, and they decided to see if they could make viable music again.
3.- Nota de daylygaz .- In 2009, The New Kids are once again roaming the Block. There’s just one problem: They definitely aren’t kids anymore. In fact, most of the group’s five members have kids of their own now. Danny Wood, the so-called “quiet one” of the 1990s boy band sensation, has four not-so-young offspring — two sons aged 17 and 16 and two daughters aged 11 and 10.
So yes, The New Kids on the Block might be a bit misnamed for the new millennium. But this doesn’t really matter to the band’s rabid fans, both new and old, or to the band members themselves. “If anything, everyone’s gotten better with maturity,” Wood said by phone from Atlanta, on a short break from one of the group’s rigorous practice sessions. “Some of us have been doing our own solo projects, so everyone came back better.” The reunion that kicked off in September of last year with the group’s first album in 14 years, “The Block,” and a full-scale North American tour, is still going strong. The group started this year out with dates in the U.K., Germany and France, and are in the middle of their second U.S. tour since the reunion, dubbed the Full Service Tour, which heads to Saratoga Performing Arts Center on Tuesday with opener Jabbawockeez.
The group — Wood, Donnie Wahlberg, brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight and Joey McIntyre — has some new surprises in store for fans this tour. In addition to a new set list featuring never-before performed tracks from “The Block” and old favorites such as “You Got It (The Right Stuff)” and “Step By Step,” the show will also feature a stage set different from the last American tour’s.
“We’re adapting to the stage; this is the part that’s work,” Wood said of the rehearsals he was in the middle of when he spoke with the Gazette. “We’re changing up the set list a bunch, even the old ones, the order that we do them in, trying to give them [the fans] a whole new experience for the summer.” According to Wood, if there has been anything difficult about this reunion, it’s rehearsing the dance routines for the stage show every day. “Getting back into the swing of that was a little more difficult — that took a couple of weeks,” Wood said. “Now, we start learning a dance routine and just fly through it. Everyone just needed to put their time in to get into shape. It just took a little time.” The music, however, has always come easily, as anyone who has followed the five New Kids’ careers before and after the group’s breakup in 1994 can attest.
The group was originally the brainchild of songwriter and producer Maurice Starr, who sought to create a white counterpart to the black R&B singing group New Edition, which he also managed in the early ’80s. Wahlberg was the first recruit, impressing Starr with his rapping and dancing abilities. Wood, the Knight brothers and Wahlberg’s younger brother Mark (of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch fame and later, a respected actor in his own right) completed the original lineup. With the addition of youngest member McIntyre after the younger Wahlberg’s departure in 1986, the group became The New Kids on the Block and secured a deal with Columbia. The group’s self-titled debut album failed to catch hold nationally, but 1988’s “Hangin’ Tough” was a winner, producing five top-10 hits and selling 8 million copies in the U.S. alone.
The album assured the band’s influence on modern pop music, with late ’90s singing groups such as Backstreet Boys and ’N Sync taking up the boy band template. But Wood and the rest of the group downplay this. “I don’t think we think about it too much, [because] we were influenced by New Edition, and before that New Edition was influenced by The Jackson Five and The Osmonds,” Wood said. “It is what it is. Those groups are very similar to us, but they did their own thing, their own music. More for us, it’s a testament to come back 15 years later and have it be as big as it was before; that’s enough for us.” Indeed, the positive reaction to the group’s reunion may come as a surprise to fans, with “The Block” debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. After a backlash in popularity fueled by accusations of lip-synching following 1990’s “Step By Step” album, the group attempted one more album in 1994, the largely ignored “Face the Music,” under the moniker NKOTB, before breaking up.
Time apart Most of the members either took up solo careers (Jordan Knight, McIntyre, Wood) or pursued acting (Wahlberg), and for the most part fell out of touch with each other, with a few exceptions. “I always kept in touch with Donnie,” Wood said. “He’s the godfather of my children, and we’ve grown up together since the first grade.” In fact, it was Wahlberg who provided the impetus for this current reunion. According to Wood, everything started with a single song, “Click Click Click,” originally recorded by R&B artist Nasri. The song became the leadoff track to “The Block.”
“Donnie sent me a copy of it; I liked it, and so did everyone else,” Wood said. “We really thought it was a good way to start this thing off. We weren’t going to do this, just a reunion tour; it was going to be a whole new album. Yeah, that was the plan from the beginning.”
The band members recorded “The Block” in 2007, and made their first public appearance together on “The Today Show” on April 4 of last year. At first, only 10 shows were tentatively announced, but things quickly spiraled into a full tour. “We had no idea; we didn’t know what was going to happen,” Wood said. “We started the shows off with three sold-out shows in Toronto. It’s gone far beyond anything we ever expected.”
Future uncertain But Wood is unsure how long it will last. Wahlberg recently shot a pilot for a new drama on TNT for the fall, and Wood is finishing up a solo record to help raise money for The Komen Foundation’s breast cancer research. It’s a cause that’s close to his heart — his mother died of breast cancer almost 10 years ago. For now, Wood and the others are excited to be on the road, playing for old fans, and a surprising number of young ones as well. “I use my daughters as an example,” Wood said. “I never even played them our old music; they got influenced by the new stuff. .?.?. My daughters listened to The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, all that stuff, and now they love us. Now they’re playing all of our stuff, old and new.”
New Kids on familiar ground Anticipation of summer tour reminds boy band member of earlier gigs. By Ken Sugiura // The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://www.ajc.com/services/content/printedition/2009/06/04/newkids0604.html).-The girls don’t hide in Joey McIntyre’s hotel bathroom anymore. For one thing, fans of New Kids on the Block are no longer girls but largely women in their 20s and 30s. These days, McIntyre said, it’s more like a fan messaging him on Twitter about 1,000 times in hopes of a reply. The boy band, hugely popular in the late 1980s and early ’90s, begins its summer reunion tour tonight at Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood. McIntyre, 36, answered a few questions Monday. Answers were edited for length.
Q: Why is the tour starting in Atlanta?
A: We love Atlanta. It’s all good, but logistically, it worked out because they had a few days open in the venue and we could set up the new stage and get our bearings down.
Q: All of the New Kids are in a caged ring. Who’s the last man standing?
A: Danny [Wood] is in pretty good shape. Donnie [Wahlberg] is a pretty substantial guy. Jordan [Knight], no joke, he’s pretty agile, so I could see him like Spider-Man up on the cage there. I’d really have to lose my mind and freak out and just freaking lose it and scare them, maybe gouge their eyes out or something.
Q: Why did you decide to keep touring after the fall reunion tour?
A: [The fans] were receptive to the idea and it went back and forth, and I think it’s a great way to end it. … The fall tour, coming back the way we did, was really special. But [the summer tour] definitely reminds us of back in the day. These summer tours, this is really kind of how we earned our wings as performers and professionals. … I’m not calling it a farewell tour. I’m not going to play that game.

The Bomb-diggity Just a quick hello to tell you how amazing these last 5 shows have been! It flew by which means we were having a lot of fun!!! Too much fun and I got the seaweed to prove it. I am gonna be posting more pix and I will get into more detail for each show…good good times!!! We are close to 5000 Books in less than 10 shows!!!!!! Amazing!!!!! Luv y'all… talk to you soon!!! oxoxxxoxxxxooxxoxxxox
Redemption Code from FirstBook .-We got a few e-mails saying that folks that made a donation on Firstbook.org/letsgetthis but didn't get their redemption code, etc. I've made a few donations myself and it works perfectly. So all I can think of is that you might be looking for the code in the e-mail from Firstbook that came after the donation. The redemption code is NOT in the e-mail. The redemption code is in bold red letters on the first page that pops up after your donation has been approved. And below that is a big Let's Get This logo that is the link to soundloadmusic.com. Once at soundloadmusic you enter that code where it says “enter pin# from back of card”.
From there you are good. I hope this clears it up. P.S. For those who get the actual cards at the shows, you have to scratch off the small bar on the back of the card to get your redemption code. If you still have a problem please e-mail email@example.com with “redemption error” in the subject line. Sorry for any problems! xoxooxxo -jm
Good Night, Gorilla .- Hey! Hope you guys enjoyed me and Griffin reading up on some balloons and things:) He's at that age where he is repeating every other word we say. Its a blast. There is no question that him having books straight out the womb made a huge difference. Every child has a different path and move at different speeds, but its so important that they have the tools to make their own special journey. A book is the machete in the adventurous world of learning. O.K. that was a horrible analogy, but its true :). Every time I check on the books after each show to see what we got, it gives me chills. I know these books are gonna be a special part of a child's life. I think of all the amazing, thoughtful people that took the time to bring a new book to the show. I feel like I'm looking into Santa's bag. We're doing some serious good here, guys! Let's keep it up! I am looking forward to branching out in so many ways. Please know that we are talking about all your ideas that you send in. We are new to the game, but we are ready to get rockin'. We already are!!! Peace, Love and Books! -jm
We don't need no stinking power! We were so hot tonight they blew out the power!!! This tour is so sweet. We are all having a great time. There is just something different about summer tours- these out door theatres, the summer air- its like a natural afrodisiac as the Fresh Prince once said :) and once again not only can we have the time of our lives but we can do some good for others. And Camden participated in doing so…Big Time!! Most books yet on the tour so far. After just 3 shows, we have collected over 1700 brand new beautiful books for kids who are gonna love them! They are gonna cherish these books. This book drive is gonna keep on giving and YOU are doing all the giving! I will thank them properly eventually, but a quick shout out to the production crew on this tour, especially Iowa, who has helped me get the volunteers situated for each show! Great meeting you guys! Camden didn't have any rain, so these guys were dry. They still worked hard for the cause and collected a ton of books. Thank you to everyone who brought a new book. It says so much about you! I know this is the tip of the iceberg- we are gonna get the word out there even more… lots of people going to the shows aren't aware of the book drive, so spread the word and for those who missed out they can go to letsgetthis.org to get involved. What an amazing summer this is shaping up to be!!! Let's share this. Let's spread this. Let's get this! -jm
"Cuz its gonna rain, rain and thunder!" What is it with rain and the New Kids?! Forget good luck on your wedding day… its good luck every time we start a new chapter. The show last night was exciting and fresh and almost surreal if it was so real- right? It was pouring all afternoon… but that didn't stop anyone. Especially the volunteers that stood in the rain collecting hundreds of books! Many hundreds- haven't got the actual count yet but it sounds like 500! Some unfortunately didn't make it to the drop off because of the rain, soooo….BRING A PLASTIC BAG FOR YOUR BOOK for the next shows! We are making such an impact here. And now you can go to firstbook.org/letsgetthis to donate and get a free download of “5 Brothers and a Million Sisters” which I am singing on this summer tour. The recording is pretty dope if you ask me- it has that live feel of the show but it bangs in a radio way now too. Hope you like…. And by the way- don't share it !:) This is for charity so if people want it tell them to go to letsgetthis.org and donate for the Children's Book Drive!!!! I love y'all! Peace, Love and Books! -jm

New Kids on the Block Autographed Jersey Auction.- NBA Maine and the New Kids on the Block are working together to help raise money for the Maine Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure by auctioning off autographed jerseys worn during the concert at the Cumberland County Civic Center on Wednesday, March 25 to help raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
To bid on the jerseys visit www.ebay.com.

Jordan Knight's Jersey
Donnie Wahlberg's Jersey
Joey McIntyre's Jersey
“I have known members of the New Kids on the Block for many years, and they are a great group of guys. We are very excited for this opportunity for us to work together to help raise money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure in honor of Danny Wood's mother mother and the millions of other people who have been affected by this terrible disease.” said Jon Jennings, Team President and GM of NBA Maine. “This is a great illustration that breast cancer knows no boundaries - be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. The New Kids on the Block and NBA Maine have been touched by this disease, just as many others have been, and they are taking steps to help us reach our vision of a world without breast cancer,” said Sally Bilancia, Executive Director of the Maine Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. That promise is now Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the global leader of the breast cancer movement, having invested more than $1 billion since inception in 1982. As the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists, we’re working together to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®, and generous contributions from their partners, sponsors and fellow supporters, they have become the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.

* Algunas entrevistas t reportajes sobre ellos en los meses de Febero y Marzo:
(http://www.themonit or.com/articles/ screen_24005_ __article. html/ready_ excitement. html )
A sea of cell phones appeared when the lights went down at Dodge Arena Saturday night. Each tiny lighted screen seemed to belong to a thirtysomething woman who was bouncing with excitement as the words "15 years ago ... they walked away ... tonight ... they ... are ... back ... Are you ready?" flashed across the giant screen in front of the crowd.
The mostly-female audience responded they were, indeed, ready, by letting loose ear-splitting screams. Check out the Festiva interview with Jordan Knight here. From the center of the stage, the five boys of the ‘80s, now men of the ‘00s, appeared together, singing, "Call It What You Want". The screams from the audience that began before the New Kids on the Block showed their faces continued through the entire song, with the enthusiastic crowd pausing only to take a breath before launching into another "woo".
Jordan Knight, Donnie Wahlberg, Joe McIntyre, Danny Wood and Jonathan Knight gave their songs and dance moves all they had, though it has been 15 years and they seemed less spry, but what they lacked in impressive moves, made up for in endurance. They barely skipped a beat before jumping into the next song. "My Favorite Girl" got the girls, er, women, screaming again, but this time they were shouting the lyrics, pumping their fists and for tonight, they were pre-teens again, abandoning inhibitions and seemingly unconcerned with how they may be judged by others. After all, they were surrounded by NKOTB fans who understood the obsession. After a display of their old choreography for "(You Got It) The Right Stuff", Wahlberg grabbed a mike and challenged the audience. "Now I want to hear you sing it!" he shouted. The fans obliged, taking the lead and singing, "Uh oh ohohoh, uh oh ohoh!" The Kids put on a good show of their classic hits, new tracks from The Block, some slick dance moves with a few wardrobe changes and lots of audience interaction. If anything, the guys, like cheese, have improved with age. New Kids on the Block flirted, danced and sang with their fans last night with lots of appreciation for them. It's clear NKOTB fans, they'll be loving you forever.
The New Kids toured the country in late 1980s and early 1990s as young mostly teenage kids and sold more than 80 million albums world wide with international No. 1 songs like “Hangin’ Tough” in 1988 and “Step by Step” in 1990. In the mid90s the band broke up and members went their separate ways.“It was more of people wanted to do their own things,” Wood said. “It was like we had been on that roller coaster ride, and it had been going so fast for so long. I think everyone needed a break and needed to explore things on their own that they wanted to do.”
Getting back together was about the music at first, Wood said, “We didn’t plan to tour. We just said let’s make a good record and let’s go on from there.” And Wood described their relationship as bonds that could never be broken. At this stage of the tour, things are really getting back on track. “It feels great now. We are about 80 something shows into the tour,” Wood said.”The hardest part was at the beginning, dance rehearsal and everyone getting back into the swing of things.” Wahlberg is credited with getting the group back together after being impressed with a demo tape of some songs written by singer/songwriter Nasri Atweh. Wahlberg played “Click, Click, Click” from the demo tape for Jordan and McIntyre and it seized their interest. “Click, Click, Click” is the first song on the new album. “The songs (by Nasri) were mature, but they still kind of had the New Kids kind of flavor,” Wood said. “His songs were very easy for us to hear us doing them. And we just clicked.”
The biggest difference in touring these days Wood explained is that most of the members have families and have separate buses, but Wahlberg and Wood are single again. Fans have been very receptive, Wood said, “From day one it has been incredible, every turn has surprised me. Last night we were in Tulsa and the crowd was insane, they were crazy. It is awesome every night” And fans don’t have to worry about them going anywhere any time soon. The band will be touring this summer and their single “2 in The Morning” just hit the radio and the video is on VH1, Wood said.

FIRST LOOK: Behind the Scenes of NKOTB's New Video By Michelle Tan Originally posted Thursday February 19, 2009 02:40 PM EST .- A hot girl. A green screen. And loads of hair product. That all adds up to one thing: Another New Kids on the Block music video. In this exclusive behind-the-scenes peek at the group's new video for "2 in the Morning," Danny Wood takes you into a "pretty creepy old house" in the Pacific Palisades where he joined Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Jordan and Jonathan Knight for their latest project. While the video follows the narrative of a feuding couple, don't expect one of the boys to bust out their acting chops. Jokes McIntyre: "We hired big-time actors to do that for us."
The video premieres on Feb. 23 on AOL but to give the guys an advance review, call the group's new number (617) 830-1100 (Boston area code of course!) and "we'll hit you back," says McIntyre. "We'll call you when we're kicking back, onstage on tour, from the ocean, who knows?"

New Kids on The Block, un regreso muy esperado. Paso a paso, uno de los grupos masculinos más exitosos de la música, emprendió su vuelta con una nueva propuesta musical encabezada por "Summertime", tema que se estrenará a nivel mundial el próximo 9 de Septiembre. L uego de permanecer 14 años alejado de los escenarios, el grupo New Kids on The Block regresa con una nueva propuesta musical encabezada por "Summertime", tema que se estrenará a nivel mundial el próximo 9 de Septiembre. Después de varios años de estar en completa inactividad, su página oficial vuelve a tener noticias de esta legendaria banda creada a finales de 1984 en Boston, e integrada por Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood y a los hermanos Jordan y Jonathan Knight. "Summertime" es el primer corte con el que la agrupación vuelve a la escena musical, y aunque este tema se estrenará a nivel mundial el 9 de Septiembre, ya se puede escuchar completo en su página oficial. Con una imagen muy desenfadada y atuendo casual, New Kids on The Block regresa también para deleitar a su público con una serie de presentaciones, que iniciarán el 18 de Septiembre, como parte de su gira de reencuentro.
El fenómeno de los ochenta recurrió a las diosas de The Pussycat Dolls para contactar a su compositora de cabecera y que les haga algunos temas para su próximo álbum. Toronto, Canadá, será la primera ciudad que visitarán estos cantantes, quienes se convirtieron en todo un fenómeno y abrieron brecha para que otras agrupaciones conformadas por varones como los Backstreet Boys y NSYNC se adueñaran de la escena musical. Incluso, fue tal su fama que este grupo tuvo su propia serie de televisión animada, la cual no sólo se transmitió en Estados Unidos sino también en México. Esta misma fuente señaló que la agrupación estará en Canadá del 18 al 21 de Septiembre, para después proseguir su gira mundial por Estados Unidos, donde tentativamente, estarán hasta el 28 de Noviembre. Ante la gran expectativa que ha causado este reencuentro en algunas plazas de Canadá y Estados Unidos las localidades se han agotado, demostrando así que este quinteto sigue vigente.
El grupo estadounidense New Kids on the Block rechaza ser leyenda de los '80. El grupo estadounidense New Kids on the Block, que se encuentra en México, rechazó ser una leyenda de los años '80 y aseguró que ídolos sólo pueden ser figuras de trascendencia artística como Frank Sinatra o The Beatles. "La palabra leyenda sólo es para gente como Frank Sinatra o The Beatles, y aunque a cualquiera le gustaría ser una leyenda no nos consideramos como tal, nosotros lo único que queremos es dejar algo con nuestra música y sabemos que somos entretenimiento", señaló Jordan Knight en una conferencia de prensa. El grupo formado en Boston en 1984 por el productor Maurice Starr está en México, donde el martes se presentó en el Auditorio Nacional de Ciudad de México. Knight aseguró que están satisfechos con este regreso, aunque reconoció que ignoran cuál será el futuro de la banda. "Estaremos de gira hasta el próximo verano (boreal), por ahora la moneda está en el aire, pero podemos decir que la música nos ha permitido conocer otros países y otras culturas, pero lo más importante es todo lo que nos enseñó", señaló Knight. Por otra parte, Donnie Wahlberg precisó que aunque muchos consideran al New Kids on the Block como la primera "boy band", aclaró que no es así, pues antes de ellos existieron otros grupos juveniles, como los Jackson Five. "Muchos nos consideran como la primera 'boy band', pero lo cierto es que hubo otros antes de nosotros, aunque el nombre de 'boy band' surgió con nosotros. Agradecemos mucho a quienes nos han apoyado y nos sentimos halagados de que nos consideren los número uno del género", apuntó Wahlberg.
New Kids On The Block regresa a la escena musical con sus integrantes originales: Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood y los hermanos Jordan y Jonathan Knight.
Durante el concierto los New Kids cumplieron y cantaron la canciones que se esperaban como: Right Stuff, Cover Girl y I’ll be Lovin’ You así como también incluyeron canciones de su nuevo álbum. El momento emotivo tuvo lugar mientras cantaban If you go away , se veían imágenes de los músicos y personajes para ellos importante, que murieron mientras ellos estaban fuera de escena como: Kurt Cobain, Frank Sinatra, Tupac, Biggie Smalls, Aaliyah, Heath Ledger y el padre de Wahlberg y la madre de Wood. Con varios cambios en el vestuario, el show de los New Kids on the Block, fue todo lo que sus fans estaban esperando, caras y cuerpos bonitos y viejos éxitos de su adolescencia.
Luego de 14 años, vuelven los "New Kids On The Block" El grupo de adolescentes que hizo furor en los '80 y '90 regresa a los escenarios con sus viejos éxitos y algunos temas nuevos.
El grupo de adolescentes New Kids On The Block (NKOTB), que hizo furor en los años 80 y 90 vendiendo más de 70 millones de discos en todo el mundo, anunció hoy que vuelve a los escenarios el mes que viene y en breve sacará un nuevo disco. Los cinco integrantes de la banda, anunciaron en el programa de televisión estadounidense Today que su primer concierto después de 14 años será el 16 de mayo en Nueva York. "Estamos realmente muy emocionados", dijo Donnie Wahlberg, que actualmente tiene 38 años. Y su compañero Jordan Knight, de 37 años, destacó: "Es mejor que las Navidades, realmente es fantástico". El grupo nació en Boston en los años 80 y ya con su segundo álbum Hangin' Tough (1988) consiguió ser conocido en todo el mundo. Wahlberg comentó que desde agosto pasado trabajan en un nuevo disco, que llegará en breve al mercado y unos meses más tarde comenzaría la gira. "Por supuesto que vamos a cantar nuestros viejos temas", declaró Wahlberg al diario Boston Herald. Junto con sus compañeros del grupo Joey McIntyre, Danny Wood y el hermano de Jordan, Jonathan Knight, Wahlberg ha grabado nuevas canciones. "No quería hacer una gira nostálgica en la que siempre se cantase lo mismo", explicó el intérprete. Los cinco integrantes del grupo realizaron hoy una actuación en directo en el centro Rockefeller de Nueva York, donde fueron recibidos con entusiasmo por numerosos seguidores. "Estoy sobrecogido con el entusiasmo de las fans, sobre todo con esta lluvia", dijo Jordan Knight.
Vuelven los New Kids on the Block. Dieciocho años después de convertirse en el fenómeno musical de los noventa y la primera 'boy band', los cinco chicos de la cuadra volerán a reunirse Fueron los Menudo de Estados Unidos. Toda una generación de adolescentes gritó y lloró en sus conciertos entonando canciones como " Step by Step", "Hangin' Tough", "Cover Girl", y "You got it (the right stuff)". Ahora, 18 años después, los New Kids on The Block regresan a los escenarios mucho más maduritos -el mayor está por cumplir los 40-, pero asegurando tener la energía de siempre. Según informa la revista "People", los rumores de posible reunión son efectivamente ciertos. Además, la página web del grupo, que utiliza las iniciales 'NKOB', ha sido relanzada y en ella se puede ver un video anticipando el anuncio oficial, el que según la fuente de "People" se daría en pocas semanas. New Kids in the Block marcó un hito en la historia de la música pop al convertirse en la primera 'boy band' -luego le siguieron grupos como Backstreet Boys y N'sync- y un fenómeno musical al vender más de 50 millones de discos. Sin embargo, a pesar del éxito, el grupo formado por Jonathan Knight, Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre, Danny Wood, Jordan Knight se disolvió en 1994.

New Kids On The Block rock Germany Tuesday, February 3 08:07 am ITN .- New Kids on the Block have played to around 5,000 mainly female fans in Frankfurt, Germany. Skip related content.
The majority of those at the gig idolised the boys - Danny Wood, Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight and Joey McIntyre - first time round 15 years ago. Many of the fans agreed that the NKOTB had improved with age. One excited fan said: "Much better. Much hotter. Much more mature." The NKOTB began their comeback tour in Canada, the US and the UK, where they played to sold out venues. According to Wahlberg, the reunion took so long to organise because they had no real reason to get back together following their break-up in 1994, adding that it wasn't just about the money.
He said: "I think we found music that we wanted to record and it gave it a base of integrity, as opposed to lets go and just do some TV show for someone, and try to make a quick dollar. "It became, lets do this because we want to do it. Lets make music, lets write songs, lets record together and then lets go on tour, and do it the right way." The NKOTB will continue their tour with concerts in Amsterdam, Paris and Duesseldorf before heading back to the US in March.
"New Baby On The Block"
I was just shopping at the Farmers Market in Los Angeles when I saw this adorable little baby laughing while his dad made little faces at him. When I looked up at the dad, I realized it was Joey McIntyre (the former heart throb of New Kids On The Block!). I'm sure Joey's life is crazy hectic now that he's back on tour with the New Kids (or is it the Old Kids now?), but he was so cool. He and his baby were rocking matching caps and were more than willing to take a photo with me.
My friend from back home is in love with him so I tried to get Joey to say hi to her on the phone but I just got her voicemail (hope you didn't delete that one!) It's weird to think that Joey used to be this little teenager that little girls used to be in love with. Now it's even weirder to think that a whole new generation of little girls is in love with him. Note to self: don't be in a boy band after the age of 30…
