  • Ha

    Dag, they look like the Rolling Stones.

    I guess the bank accounts are drying up.

  • Bre

    Wow, my sister is gonna be happy about this! o_O Danny looks SOOO different!

  • Nando

    Donnie’s a successful actor. The rest are… I don’t know.

    Hey Jordan got skinny again.

  • bella

    Why in good grief would they put themselves through this? And why would Donnie stoop to this level, I thought he wanted to be considered a serious actor?

  • shoops

    WOO HOO!!!!!!! Man, I remember getting that….CASSETTE. And learning all the words. and thinking i would marry Joe. Sad or what?

  • ?

    Jonathan knight looks better than jordan now.

  • jordan

    Step by step !!!!

    Well, we were young…now we grow up !!!!

  • Kada

    This sooooo sad.

  • Lauren

    omg! i LOVED nkotb back in 3rd & 4th grade! i remember rocking out to hangin’ tough on tape. i used to kiss the tv screen whenever i would see jordan. haha! it was my dream to see them in concert but my mom wouldn’t take me. :(

  • what what

    Never did like those dudes, I always thought they were a New Edition rip off.

  • emily☆

    umm who are these freaks?????????
    they look OLD!!!!!!!!!

  • VT


  • blahblahblah

    i am soooo looking forward to this!!! Donnie still looks amazing!!! And Joey , Danny, and Jordan can all still sing so great! I have heard some of Danny’s solo acoustic stuff and its great! Joey sang on the DWTS tour and sounds amazing! Jordan released a CD about a year ago and still has the voice!

  • Ivana

    My only outfit in 8th grade, was a shirt with Donnie’s face and jeans… LOL.

  • Kanuck

    new kids rock man, bring back the 80′s

  • mitcha


    I really hope they come to Brazil !!!!!!

    PLEASE LORD!!!!!!!!

    The best boy band EVER!

  • Michelle

    Thanks for the great article :)

  • Lola

    they all look better but donnie

  • ME!


  • fly

    NKOTB ROCKS!!! Loved them then, LOVE them now, hotter than ever, BABY!!!!!!!!!

  • Jina

    Two of them not even airbrushing can help.

  • Jina

    And I think they’d look better without Zippy (the one on the far right).

  • random

    do they really think they’re going to have a bunch of young girls chasing after them like back in the day? to their dismay it’ll be a bunch of late thirty-something housewives pulling out their old NKOTB t-shirts.

  • Samara

    # 24, i agree with u. is this a JOKe? I mean, leave the past alone..I can see if they were still performing over a long period of time and then stop and then wanted to do it all again but they be away as a group forever, its a new time …

  • eme

    WOW, sort of creepy… their all grown men. Why would they want to sing and dance to their old teenage hits? It just doesn’t work… unlike the Spice Girls reunion tour… this is a JOKE.

  • Tdani

    These guys were sooooo cute to me as an 11- and 12-year-old in the early 90s, Jordan being the cutest. I had a t-shirt of them. The hottest now would be Joey.

  • goldend

    yeah they are older but aren’t we all?

  • Tdani

    LOL, Random!! I’m a wife and I’m 26! But who knows, they might be able to sway those thirty-somethings. They just need to mature their style—-and their name—-from the teenage days.

  • rolling eyes

    This is so wrong on so many levels….

    hahaha I can’t stop the hysterics

  • Izzy

    There are a lot of undercover “Blockheads” who are so excited about this!! Even Me…. They were the boy band of my time.. and of course not everyone is going to like this so let me gloat and sing… PLEASE DON”T GO GIRL……

  • ed


  • Hangin’ low

  • handbag love

    I feel so old!

    FREE sunglasses with any handbag purchase.

  • don’t even…

    You all know this is a get rich quick scheme… it has nothing to do with reliving old times… most of those guys know they sucked balls back then and they will stink now….

    ppl in that messed up town just don’t know when to quit

    WHEN ITS OVER ITS OVER… make a song of that

  • LUIz

    They were very successful here in Brazil, and as we say: “Who is alive, always appears…”


    I’m very happy. I’m sure they have beautiful songs and a lot of energy on stage.
    I guess they look prettier than ever and Joey is SO cute. (like alwaysO)
    Hope to see them here in Brazil!

    Joey Mclntyre’s a nice guy. I’m just a bit curious.The Magazine HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP reported his profiles were found on the famous rich women seeking affairs site myinterracialmatch.c o m last week and he was seeking his sugar Mum there now!

  • Zobiana

    Great to see an article about the reunion. For those saying rude things about them: I feel very sorry for you. Must be awful to spend so much of your life being so negative.

  • lana

    I used to have a huge crush on Johnny. They all look great.

  • sam

    Joey’s looking hot. =)

  • ewoi
