New Kids on the Block to reunite

Band will perform first live concert since 1994 on the TODAY Show plaza

By Mike Celizic

TODAY

updated 32 minutes ago

Theyâ€re no longer kids, and the block theyâ€ll be on is actually Rockefeller Plaza. But for the first time in 14 years, the New Kids on the Block will be reunited Friday on TODAY.

 

The band will return to TODAY on May 16 to perform their first live concert since 1994 as part of TODAYâ€s summer concert series on the Plaza.

 

The reunion comes 22 years after the band was formed in Boston and 20 years after the debut of their breakthrough album, “Hanging Tough,†rocketed Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood and Jordan and Jonathan Knight to stardom. Over the next six years, they sold more than 70 million albums and made hundreds of millions of dollars.

 

Wahlberg said he was persuaded to get back together with his former bandmates — Joey McIntyre, brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight and Danny Wood — when they decided to record new music. Wahlberg said he wrote 80 percent of the new material with McIntyre and Jordan Knight.

 

“I had no interest going out on a nostalgia tour and singing the same material,†said Wahlberg, 38.

 

But, he added: “We absolutely will do the old songs for sure.â€

 

Producer Maurice Starr formed the group in Boston in the 1980s, hoping to re-create the success he had with another teen group from Boston, New Edition.

 

At the height of their popularity, New Kids sold out world tours, marketed millions of dollars in merchandise and spawned a Saturday morning cartoon.

 

No longer boys and with their music fallen out of favor, the group disbanded in 1994 and its members scattered off to separate careers. Jonathan Knight went into real estate; his brother Jordan continued a solo singing career and had a platinum single, “Give It to You.â€

 

McIntyre also went solo and got into acting, landing a regular role on “Boston Public†and taking a turn on “Dancing with the Stars.â€

 

Wood went back to Boston, started a record label, and continued to sing. Wahlberg became an actor, a career path that had been blazed by his brother Mark “Marky Mark†Wahlberg.

My sister emailed me this morning to ask if we should move the wedding date...lol! I have been telling my sisters that we are going to their concert as soon as I heard they were reuniting (my sister took me to the NKOTB concert when I was in 4th grade so I thought it would be great to go together 20 years later). Oh well, maybe I'll catch them next time around!

 

BTW, something really embarrassing... I've wanted to name my child (girl or boy) Jordan ever since I fell in love with Jordan Knight so long ago. Mike told me hell no!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
