They say you never forget your first love. Mine was Jordan Knight at 4 years old. Haha! But seriously, listen them recordings below. When I was little my sister and I were all about New Kids On The Block. Our first CD’s were Step By Step and Hanging Tough, they were in our stockings on Christmas morning. We had the bed sheets, curtains, big buttons and the dolls, which I still have today! I remember we used to watch the No More Games Pay Per View special from 1990 all the time. We used to have a tape recorder and we would record ourselves singing new kids songs all the time. I’m so lucky that I still had one of those tapes and was able to get the audio off it before cassette tape players become extinct.
Lets Fast forward to 2008, New Kids On The Block are on the today show and they’ve reunited! This was beyond exciting! Then they announced a tour! We never went to a concert as kids so this time we were going. No matter what we weren’t missing this.
Full Service Tour 2009
The concert was on June 25th 2009 and I was 7 months pregnant. Nothing was stopping me from going though. I was going to see Jordan….I mean….The new kids! When we were pulling into the parking lot the radio was announcing that Michael Jackson had died. They did an amazing tribute to him during the concert and it was great how they added that part in at the last minute.
This one was so much fun! When I was 12 The Backstreet Boys were my favorite so to see these two together was amazing! Andrea had so much fun at this one she was drunk before the concert even started off one drink, and the rest of mine, haha!
The Package Tour 2013
We bought tickets to this one a few weeks before the show. Every year we wonder if it will be the last tour so we know we have to go. For buying tickets so late, we had amazing seats!! The Package Tour had Boys II Men and 98 Degrees with the New Kids On The Block. I’ve never seen Boys II Men and they put on an amazing show.
The Main Event 2015
The Main Events special Guests were TLC and Nelly!
Total Package Tour 2017
The Total Package Tour had Boys II Men and Paula Abdul as special guests. I think these concerts get better every time we go. One thing is for sure, as long as they are touring, we will be there.
Tonight is the Mix Tape Tour at Little Caesars Arena and I am taking Kevin with us for his first concert! I’m so excited that his first concert gets to be New Kids. I wouldn’t have it any other way!
