Not only is this mundane and pointless, it’s a little embarrassing as well!
I saw New Kids on the Block at Madison Square Garden last night. I say, with all sincerity and absolutely no irony at all, that they put on an absolutely fantastic show.
I’ve wanted to see NKOB since 1989. Last night, I fulfilled a nearly two-decade old dream. New Kids on the Block was the first musical group I actually remember liking. I had the Jordan and Donnie action figure. They replaced Ken as Barbie’s love interests.
The New Kids sang for over two hours. They pulled out all their old songs and the dance moves were straight out of 1990. Joey break danced. They really engaged the crowd and seemed genuinely thrilled with their response…
And, whoo boy, was there ever a response! I’ve never seen so many 24-28 year old women at one place at one time. Everyone was dancing, cheering, singing along and waving homemade signs.
I woke up with “The Right Stuff” stuck in my head this morning.
Anyone else have some love for NKOB?
