I'm really excited and I'm hoping they come here because I would love to do what I never got a chance to do back in the day and that's see them in concert . My sister Vicky, my friends and I were all major fans of theirs and I can remember in the summer we would sit outside with the radio on loud and sing their songs and even dance to their music. Sure, some may think they are corny now but I bet these are the same people who loved them back then but would never admit to it but THEY KNOW WHO THEY ARE, THEY KNOW....

Yeah, I am going to have to keep an eye out for information of their tour in this area. Yeah, Donniw Whalberg is a great actor too. I hated that they took off his show Runaway because I thought it was an awesome show. He has aged well for sure. Jordan, the last time I saw on him on the Surreal Life looked like he gained a few pounds but for the most part he looed the same. And Joey has gotten really good looking. He still has those amazing blue eyes of course. I can't wait for their tour!

I agree! Im really excited that they are back and hope I get the chance to go see them in concert as well. I did go see them one time when I was about 7 or 8. After we were outside and their limo went by me and I took off running after it and my mother had to chase me down. I actually got to see them in the window. It was pretty cool. Anyways, they were pretty big back then and im sure they will do pretty well now.

I find this amusing beyond belief. I saw something about this a few weeks ago and at the time I figured it had to be some publicity stunt. As it turns out I was semi-right. It is a publicity stunt, but they really are getting back together. I was a little too young for the first round, I was about 7 in 1989 during their heyday. I'll be interested to see how much(or how little rather) of an impact they will make now. I find this absolutely ridiculous. They weren't all that impressive to begin with. I bet Ron Pearlman is dancing in his shoes. He will still get a cut of everything they make this go-round too, since he owns the license to the NKOTB logo and name. I'll admit to liking one of their songs. I never really did like Step by Step, but I loved Cover Girl(sung almost entirely by Donny Wahlberg). I'm not sure what I was totally obsessed by that song, but I could have listened to it for hours when I was like 10. I think I've totally embarrassed myself now...onto another topic...

Ron Perlman used to own the n*sync name....I think they went to court and won it though. Maurice Starr was the manager of New Kids. And actully Most of their concerts this summer sold out.

I was born in 84 and I was absolutely obsessed with them! I mean I had everything from the whole bedding set to dolls to lamps etc! I think they will do well. They already sound better then they used to. Of course back then that was the thing. But I think they will do great and hope they do. I love their new song summertime.

I actually can't believe they are trying to stage a comeback...at any price, I'm sure. I used to love NKOTB, but that doesn't mean I will be excited about anything they come out with. I'm sure they're doing it for the new kids in 4th and 5th grade. We'll see how that pans out.

AS "dorky" as everyone thinks it is I am so excited they are back. I don't think I will be able to afford to see them live though :(
