We had SO MUCH FUN at the New Kids on the Block concert last night. My dad said the other day "you're never going to outgrow them, are you" and my answer is definately "NO!"
My cousin Danica drove down from KC to go to the concert with me. She was a big fan along with me when we were growing up, but she didn't get to go to any of their concerts back then. I got to go to two of them with my friend Erin. I had just as much fun last night- maybe even more-- than I did at those concerts all those years ago.
Jabbawockeez opened for them...a great dance troupe from "America's Best Dance Crew." They were so entertaining.
Jesse McCartney performed as well, and I enjoyed the few songs of his that I knew...but thought that he should have gone first and Jabbawockeez second.
NKOTB came on the stage at 9 and performed till 11. It was AWESOME. They did a lot of the old stuff, a lot of their new stuff, and it was just fabulous. I screamed like a teenager. I am hoarse today with a sore throat. It was so much fun. Their stage was big and neat, they had pyrotechnics which were cool--or hot actually-- and our seats were fabulous. We were in the first row of the balcony-- so just a few inches above the "floor" and only about 15 rows back from the stage. So fun.
It was great to share the fun night with my cousin, and my BFF Debbi. She is so fun to be with. We had a rockin good time with all the other 30-something women in the arena. Once NKOTB came on, pretty much the whole arena was standing the entire rest of the show.
My bloggy friend Jodi (http://www.oliviaandlogan.blogspot.com/) was there with us with two of her friends, and my friend Crystal (www.freewebs.com/hansontriplets) was there with her sister. I spent most of my time looking at the stage to my right so didn't see a lot of what was happening to my left- which is the side they were seated on- but I'm going to assume they all had just as much fun as I did. I might have been the giddiest of the group though. And I bet I screamed more than Jodi. She seems a little quiet to be as loud and excited as me :)
Joey McIntyre--the other love of my life!
