It's official people- New Kids on the Block have reunited and as their number 1 fan I couldn't be happier!
I remember in 6th Grade they came in concert to the Marriott Center and when tickets went on sale at Smith's my mom wouldn't let me sleep overnight to get them so my sweet sisters all took turns waiting in line that night and into the morning to make sure I got tickets to see my favorite band.
I remember getting dropped off in front of the building and just being so excited to see Jordan, Jonathan, Donny, Danny and Joey in person and to hear them sing songs like Hangin' Tough, Please Don't go Girl and The Right Stuff when before the only place I could see and hear it was MTV. It was my first concert but it is one I remember the most and have the best memories of.
I think I even cried when Joey Jo sang because I swear he was singing it just for me.
It will come as no surprise that when N'Sync came to Rice Eccles Stadium, I was there on the floor singing right along!! I was probably one of the oldest people there but I had just as much fun as everyone else. I don't think I cried but i'm pretty sure that during one of their slow songs Chris Kirkpatrick looked me right in the eye while he was singing!!
I'll be forever a boy band fan!
Here's the best part:
THEY'RE COMING TO DALLAS!!!
That's right- Oct. 19th baby. I'll be singing right along with them once again but this time it'll be all new songs- I sure hope they sing some of their old stuff too!
All I need to do now is go onto Ebay and try to find a t-shirt I can wear- I already have a towel so i'll make sure to bring that but I also need some buttons!
Surprisingly enough, i'm not alone in this- i've been able to find a group of us fans that are also excited about this reunion and will be standing right next to me and we are going to have so much fun!
LONG LIVE THE NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK!!!
