    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?

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

    random Says:

    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 Says:

    # 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 …

  26. 26
    eme Says:

    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 Says:

    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 Says:

    yeah they are older but aren’t we all?

  29. 29
    Tdani Says:

    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.

    niki Says:

    They’re older and all of their old(er) fans are soooooo excited. The die hards never go away. Young kids today have absolutely no one that compares to their success. It’s sad that things are so different now. Every body sounds the same with less than enough talent. And they’re wannabees too. Justin Timberlake went successfully solo: Hello, Jordan is hotter and sings and dances better!

    carcar Says:

    the people who are being rude and are not fans, why even bother leaving a message? they were a big deal and had tons of fans. so what if they are older now, so are the fans .hey if they are willing to get together and sing , well then the true fans are willing to go to the concerts. when i was in school, i love them and i know i’m not alone.

    It’s too bad all you negative people just don’t get the fact that everything in history repeats itself…And I’ve been waiting so patiently for this! Donnie is Hotter than ever! All of them are Hot!
    keep on singing to your die hard fans! We will never stop listening.

    Billie grant Says:

    I think that everyone deserves to “live their own dream”…this said, maybe their comeback isn’t a “bad” thing. I am 27 and still love them. My kids are 6 and 8 and love them now. It really is something that I can share with my children. They love hearing stories of concerts I got to go to as a child!! I support what they are doing 100%!!!

    missy250 Says:

    You people that can do nothing but critizse these gorgeous men, must be balding, fat, working for minimum wage, and living with your mother and a bunch of cats, because you sure are jealous of these guys who are in their late 30s and look just as good as they did back then, so quit critisizing them you pitiful excuse of a human being

    PS: I’ll love every guy in The New Kids On The Block forever especially Jordan Knight

  69. 69
    Jennifer Says:

    The negative comments are simply jealousy. Pay no attention boys! I agree with several people who said they are older, but so are their fans :P They rock and their music is WOW! And I am sorry, but there is proably not a single guy posting here that is even half as HOT as Jordan!! Who can sing and dance the way that man can. Even those of you who took the time to post a negative comment spent the time to do so didn’t you. HA.

    I have been a New Kids fan since they first got together a million years ago-ok not that long ago but it’s been awhile…I went to there concert back in 1992 when I was 16 and had the time of my life…back then I was totally obsessed with Jordan, but now that they have grown into men, I’m sorry Jordan-you’re still hot-but Donnie is OMG fine as hell. I was a new kids fan, still am a new kids fan, and always will be a a new kids fan. If for some reason they read this, I just want to say congratulations on your comeback…hugs and kisses.

  72. 72
    Melissa Says:

    Oh and one more thing…just ignore the stupid, negative people they have no idea what real talent is anyway.

  73. 73
    Amy Says:

    I used to like the new kids on the block until I heard some of there interviews…all donnie can talk about is how many fans he wants to sleep with while on tour. I don’t know about you but I would like to be thought of as more than a piece of ass.

  74. 74
    Ann Says:

    I agree with #71..and for all of the people that put them down GFY!! I went to the first concert of the tour on Sept 18th and it was AMAZING!!! The new stuff is awesome too! Too all you losers that put them are all jealous that people could love them for 20 years and you can’t find anyone to love you like that..really sad.
    Let me ask you “Do people talk smack about the bands or groups or whomever it is that you all listen too?” Probably not, so a suggestion would be to keep you mouth shut.
    To all the NKOTB fans out rock
    To all you non-fans, jealousy is an ugly thing!

    shygirl Says:

    oh great! i really loved the nkotb bands. i used to listen almost everyday to their greatest hits songs on the tape that i had with me when i was high school until college. and even up to now i still reminisce all their songs and their bands. looking forward to their reuion concert. hey guys, you rock! :)
