You're too late Joey, I married Jason

Back when I was 9 years old, I was in love with New Kids on the Block. I was pretty sure that I was going to marry Joey McIntyre, and think I still have a note that I wrote to him informing him of that. (The fact that I still have it could explain why he never wrote back.) When I heard that they were coming back out with a new cd and touring, it was like Christmas. I never went to a concert back then, so I was SO excited to go now! It was in Chicago last Friday and my mom went with me.

It was fantastic!!! I'd say the audience was 95% female, and the average age was probably 30. So many woman had on their old New Kids tshirts, hats, buttons - it was great! I screamed and squealed just like a little girl.

Mom and I:

Did I mention that our seats were great?? :) Not too close, but not too far away.

Joey! Sigh ...


More Joey :) I cheated a bit on this one - it was taken of the big screen right next to us.


All the boys, singing "I'll be loving you forever"

Towards the end of the night - I think this was before their encore.

We also took tons of video on my mom's camera and I couldn't pick just one to post. So down below you'll find 10 of the best ones. Enjoy!!!

If it's easier to just go to youtube, you can find them here: New Kids on the Block

I'm definitely envious!! I would've loved to see them in concert, but everything was too far away and too expensive right now...looks like you and your mom had a great time! I'm glad you were able to make it--thanks for sharing! Definitely brings back memories. :)
