New Kids on the Block...Making Their Way Into our Hearts Once More

This year, thus far, has been one concert disappointment after another for me. I am a hardcore 311 fan and see them in every city within two hours of my hometown when they are on tour (yes, it is excessive!). Well this year they come out to Southern California while I am vacationing at Lake Powell, Utah.

And another of my favorite bands, The Bouncing Souls, yeah they were playing last night and I drove for an hour to see them, only to wait in line and be denied entry. And the worst part, the cutoff was about five people in front of me!

So now the only concert that I can look forward to is Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at the Hollywood Bowl this summer. Or maybe not? The word is that the New Kids on the Block (or NKOTB as we youngsters call them), are going to be putting out an album AND touring! Can you say mega-reunion?!

When they were around about 14 years ago I was in 1st grade so I never saw them live, but when they do play a venue near me this time, you better believe I will be there!

They are already doing a few East Cost tours and have appeared on the Today Show, so things should be getting underway soon. We'll have to see what the next few months hold for the NKOTB!

NKOTB was the very 1st concert I ever attended. I was a Jordan Lover. Now...not so much!

I can't believe they are coming back!

You know, I wasn't really old enough to appreciate NKOTB but my friend's sister was crazy about them. CRAZY. I wonder whether she's been doing cartwheels now that they are coming back...
