Back in June of last year, the Backstreet Boys surprised an NYC audience at a New Kids on the Block concert by jumping up on stage to perform … thus was born NKOTBSB. Since that time, the megaboyband recorded an album together and went on tour. I honestly never considered seeing the show but I kept hearing such great things … and NKOTB is a group I never saw in concert back in the 90s so I thought … what the Hell. I managed to score a couple of sweet tix for David and me and we went to the Anaheim, CA show last night. I was expecting a fun concert but I was not expecting to LOVE it as much as I did. I gotta say … NKOTB blew me away!
The show was amazingly fun … over the top … and LOUD! And not just the music, but the screams … oh, the screams. As you may recall, AJ Mclean from BSB checked himself into rehab back in January so I was happy to see him looking so well last night. Here are a couple of videos to give you a taste. First up, New Kids on the Block perform You Got It (The Right Stuff):
Here is video of Backstreet Boys performing Larger Than Life:
Whoever came up with the idea to put these two groups together for one big show is a freakin’ genius. Even if you’re not a big fan of either group, like me, this show will WOW the pants off you. I’m really glad we went last night … it was a blast.
Thus far, no plans for today … but the weekend approacheth so I might need to rest up before it hits ;) Happy Thursday!
