Jonathan checking in!

Tuesday morning here in LA. Heading off to rehearsal in a few minutes. Just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone that was able to attend our event this past weekend in LA. It was a great pleasure to meet so many people from all around the country and hear your questions. It was also a pleasure to see your reactions to our new music! The new album is something we are really proud of and will be our honor to share it with the world.
It has been the best of times in rehearsal with the guys everyday. I wish you all could be flies on the wall. I forgot what a bunch of comedians they are. I couldn’t have a better bunch of guys to be working with! The album cover artwork will be arriving today at the studio. Cant wait to see the final product!!!! See you all real soon! September 18th is approaching fast!

All the best,

Jonathan


Update, 3:10PM: Jonathan left anther message:

Jonathan update…
Ok, Los Angeles is officially a crazy place! I just went through my first earthquake. Makes me want to get out on tour all the more. Seems really strange to me that ten minutes after it ended life continued as normal for these people. I think ill park my car on the street from now on and not in the underground garage. I never get to rehearsal on time but believe me I couldn’t wait to leave my apartment this morning.

New Kids on the Block spotted in Miami


According to the Miami Herald, the New Kids were at the Tides Hotel in Miami this weekend. Here is the article:

Hangin' Tough on the terrace at The Tides

The recently reunited New Kids on the Block seemingly found all ''The Right Stuff'' this weekend at the Tides Hotel. While the ''kids'' may not exactly look the same in bathing suits as they did in ''91, the original boy band soaked up the sun from one of the hotel's swanky poolside cabanas. The hotel's terrace provided another spot for the boys to, uh, ``Hang Tough'' and squeeze in some much-needed relaxation before their international tour kicks off in September.

On Friday, NKOTB singer Jordan Knight was seen working out at the original South Beach Crunch. He was sporting a white T-shirt and black shorts, doing some serious ab work.

Donnie Wahlberg Speaks out about Life Insurance

Here is an article from Investment News

New Kid reaches out
In September, actor and former New Kids on the Block frontman Donnie Wahlberg will add another title to his résumé: national spokesman for the Life Foundation's annual Life Insurance Awareness Month.


The Arlington, Va.-based Life and Health Insurance Foundation for Education is educating the public on the benefits of life insurance and stressing the importance of consulting a financial professional when buying a policy. September marks the fifth year that the foundation has reached out to Americans to show them why they should purchase life insurance.

Mr. Wahlberg, who will also tour with his reunited band this fall, will conduct interviews on national television and radio, as well as in print media.


He will be featured in a video message, calling for industry support of Life Insurance Awareness Month. That message will be distributed to carriers and producers nationwide.

Mr. Wahlberg will also speak at the Falls Church, Va.-based National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors' annual convention Sept. 8 in San Diego.

The star's endorsement of life insurance is based on a personal story. Mr. Wahlberg's sister, Debbie, died at 44 without life coverage, leaving behind a 16-year-old son.

Although the extended Wahlberg family cared for the young man, the event showed Mr. Wahlberg firsthand why planning for the unforeseen is so important. The purchase of life insurance was a "no-brainer" once the celebrity sat down with his financial adviser, Mr. Wahlberg said in a statement.

"My sister was taken away from us too soon. She was a young woman who had her whole life ahead of her, but like so many people, she didn't think about the 'what-ifs,'" Mr. Wahlberg said.
"If something were to happen to me, I want to know that my loved ones will be taken care of financially," he said.

Before the entrance of the Kudamm Karrees a Groupie group behind a windowpane waited. They knew exactly that the NKOTB is in the city!

Danny and Donnie took the crush with joy to the knowledge and jumped into the waiting quantity. Then they let surround itself from the waiting mummies.

Donnie and Danny Interview with Faz.net

Donnie and Danny did an interview with FAZ.net. The original is in German, so here is the rough English translation

„The people do not ask nevertheless also different group for their names!” New Kids on the block in the evening sun
14. July 2008 you were the mother of all Boybands, which bestbezahlten entertainers of the world, her have eighty million plates drawn up. Now they are around the forty: Fourteen years after the separation is those new Kids on the block back. In the interview Donnie and Danny explain, why.

In order to be honest, when I heard that there is a comeback that new Kids on the block, thought I, sound tragically.

Donnie Wahlberg: Why?

Well, you are any more new one, you are no more Kids….

Beach Boys are also no more Boys.

After fourteen years: What drives adults of men to demonstrate again too choreographies rehearsed fifth next to each other?

For me personally was it like that I had new Kids a mad career after the dissolution that. And for a few different one of the boys is valid also. I worked with some the best producers and actors of the world, I am a respected actor, I would not like to work, as if I indicate, but around your question to answer… why we again together are? I found a plate, with which we fell in love. I found the music, I liked her, I wanted her to sing….

How do you find to music?

I turned straight with Robert de Niro and Al Pacino in New York, and I had visited our old music attorney, so only, in order to say hello. And it gave me a CD, a demo Tape of a Canadian Singer Songwriter, and it announced, hör's you times, I hab's even not yet belonged. And it affected me immediately. Such a beautiful song.

The single „summer time “?

No, the song is called „Click Click Click “.

So far one was allowed to hear only the single.

I played the song Jordan, and he agreed to go through if I became the admission financiers. And Joe and Danny and John agreed also. And then it made for so much fun that we took up thereafter still another song. And then I decided that I a whole album before financiers, and we to have then a half year worked to. We alone. I organized and financed Fotoshootings, the flights, everything. It was a large risk.

Did you think briefly to change your names?

No. We are, who we are. We are not new, and we are not Kids, but which soll's? Green Day are not green also. That is only one name. And it is a name, which people recognize. And I do not want to criticize you, but the people ask nevertheless also different group not for their names. The people ask us whether we through-brought our whole money that we do not make again music… however why ask that anybody Rolling Stones? The people do not ask adults of group for it….

Rolling Stones play instruments. Rolling Stones do not dance rehearsed choreographies.

They play instruments? And which has with something to do? I wrote Nummer-1-Platten, I have Nummer-1-Platten produced….

Danny Wood: From where do you want to know that we do not play instruments?

, You do not play notion?

Yes, I play guitar.

As said, so far is only the first single well-known, and since you do not play an instrument.

Wahlberg: I do not understand, what to it be so important should to play an instrument. Frank Sinatra did not play an instrument, and it is one of the largest singer legends of all times. That I do not want to compare us with Frank Sinatra… I am even an instrument. I am an entertainer. I write song, I produce song, I hits wrote, I produced hits, sing I hits….

Did you have new Kids on the block after the dissolution that never the desire to make somewhat completely different one? To perhaps still study? They were so young, when your group dissolved, you were all beginning, center twenty.

Wood: Yes, but we made nevertheless completely different things. I have four children. A girl, I adopted one of them, in Russia. Them were eleven months old and eleven Pound weighed. I mean, the life consist nevertheless of more than music or that new Kids.

I ask, because I want to really understand it: Doesn't it feel like a step back to continue where you stopped before fourteen years?

That became it, if we would make it for the wrong reasons. So it is a step forward. If you hear the whole album, you will understand that.

Thus this mark goes around the music.

Absolutely. Otherwise we would not make it. It is like in former times, but with a much higher musical quality.

So far I know only the video to the first single. And there, you excuse, are nevertheless everything completely exactly like in former times. There they dance with naked torsos at the beach, it are pretty girls, you are brown, muskulös… and the music, now.

Wahlberg: Actually another song should have become the first single, a song, in which I process the failure of my marriage. But it did not seem correct for the group to acknowledge thereby. There it concerns my personal life, not around the group as a whole. „Summer time “was stop a good song for the summer, in order to be honest. One will only see with the next two Singles, where we stand today.

That will be interesting, because you were as it were the prototype for all the Boybands, which came to you, Take That, N Sync, Backstreet Boys… now could you the prototype for into the years Boybands come become. Does one say Menband?

Wahlberg: I can say the following: One never knows, how it goes correctly. One can only try to give its best. There are many people, which see the video of „summer time “and to say, okay, those are honestly. And others see it saying and, those make still the same Pop. And if we had made a darker album, it would have given people, which would have found the dumb. We can make it quite for not all. I would have uncoupled lunatically gladly another single than first.

I meant something else. They are now actually the opposite of what one introduces oneself under a Boyband. They are married or divorced, have children. Is expected by Boybands that they work, as if would be free it. They should be projection surfaces. One said certainly nevertheless in former times, you to you should your private life secret keep.

No, one does not have. See, in America gave it only Backstreet Boys and N Sync, here in Europe gave it much more Boybands. Therefore one thinks here, there would not be a formula, a blueprint that one would say to those, like her to give oneself would have… with us was that like that. Nobody said us at that time, how we have to be, because nobody knew, what one should have said us. Do they understand?

Wood: For us there was no blueprint, we was the blueprint. In each regard. The record company did not react to our success, it had a plan.

And which for a success: eighty million sold plates!

Wahlberg: That was rather coincidence. The marketing plan of the record company was wrong. The record company wanted us over the urban-radio stations marked out. Their plan was that we were white boys, who sounded like black boys - we should all fools, and which would like black public us, before it would find out that we would be white. The functioned not. The plan went inclined. And then a Popradiostation played us, and the reaction was upsetting. And in such a way the record company that it had to change the course, noticed it marketed us then as Pop, and all fell themselves like the vultures on us. Later Boybands was formed after us. There it was called, lets it us exactly the same make, we needs a cool one, a shy one, a good one, a strong one and so on. I should be probably with us the strong one. But I was simply only, who I was.

1990 was you the bestbezahlten entertainers of the world, you was times unbelievably famous. Which is more difficult to bear: If constantly fans besiege the house, or if no more fans besiege the house?

All part of the life, it is belonged to. Some people drink much, if they are young, make much party. If they stop thereby, is missing to them somewhat. One can ask oneself: what better, is a life with parties or one without? Keins of both is the correct answer. In the life it concerns other things.

But it must be nevertheless difficult to come down from the summit of the fame again. You played their last route 1994 in much smaller resounding than before. Everything totally all the same?

That will differently answer from that group to everyone. With me was it like that: I accepted. Clearly there are moments, there feels one as in a roller coaster. One evenly still was in the highest high, and then it goes down, and the wave of the energy is away, and you are suddenly alone and think, and now? Then one must remember that it did not concern fame. One must find then something else, with which one can go itself a roller coaster ride. Whether now as a plumber is, as a father, to find as actors… something new which binds one again in such a way, that is the challenge.

If you make photos now again as group, pose, dance - doesn't feel like a terrible Déjà vu?

Sometimes. But we stand there over it.

Did you have to adapt your dance style to your age, so that it does not work in a silly way? Or will you again exactly the same dance on the stage like in former times?

We are today better.

In dancing?

We are better. We are all in super form. None became fat.

They are today in better form than with beginning twenty?

Wood: I.

Wahlberg: Look at its muscles!

Wood: I am before three years the Miami marathon coagulated, I am a marathon as I still with that new Kids was run never. I am today better in form. We know today very exactly, what we do, in addition, know, how this juvenile energy is to be controlled. We are today all ripe.

Do you have to smoke all stopped, drinking like the remainder of the world?

Wood: I drank never much.

Thus were you never a wild juvenile Boygroup?

Wahlberg: We had our moments, oh. But it is never gotten out of control. We had luck.

Wasn't one of you once arrested, because he set a hotel carpet in fire?

Wahlberg: I. But I set no carpet in fire.

Wood: It squirted with the fire extinguisher. It should become a caper. There I was. There was no fire.

Wahlberg: There so much fire was in the area, as is in this area here straight fires, and one threatened me to put me for twenty years into the prison. It was complete horse muck. That was a sad time.

Was that the only arrest?

Oh, which I know.

Okay, we speak over something else. Is correct, what in the Internet to read actual you becomes with Michael Jackson into the studio to go?

Michael Jackson?

They would have met, it are said it last week.

No. I should it on 4 July in read Vegas to meet, but did not come off, and it would have had also nothing do with our plate. One of our producers works with it, and I made any joke over it on our press conference. It is to be seen merry, be said now like one again everything can or not, and it goes around. I read, we with Madonna would also work.

Yes, and with Timbaland.

Timbaland is correct.

How much do you have to pay to Timbaland, so that it works with you?

Wood: We do not know yet.

Wahlberg: I know it, but I do not say it to you.

What has to happen, so that you rate the comeback as success?

Wood: That already happened.

Wahlberg: The US route is already nearly sells off, it is unbelievable. We made a great plate, found we a record company, which wanted this plate. All further one is a gift. Let me the still following say, simply because of the direction, into which this interview went: The prices for our concert maps are as low as possible. We do not want to use anybody, we want at nobody to enrich itself. One often used us. We were successful, we much money made, as had hits, but - one acted often not in our interest. We want to now make that differently: We want to make something, which is exactly the same in our interest as in that of the public. So. Thank you.

Danny Blog - July 17th

Danny posted this blog today

Hi everyone,
We are back from Germany and it was amazing. Through out this experience I never know what to expect. The German fans are more than ready for THE BLOCK just like everyone here and in Canada. The support was unbelievable and it was awesome. Every where we went people where there to support us. We are looking forward to the European tour next year.
I want to rundown our week for you so maybe you will get an idea of what it was like.
We arrived Monday July 7th to Germany. We took the day to recuperate from jet lag, see the movie set, and have a fitting for our crazy medieval outfits.
Tuesday we filmed, as ourselves in medieval times, with the amazing German director/actor Til Schweiger. It was a fun day aside from the black soot we all inhaled during the filming. After we finished we where blowing out black boogers. There where flames being blown thru the air through out our performance. It was a pleasure working with Til and we look forward to the release of the movie in December.
Wednesday was the big international press conference. It was amazing to see over 200 European journalists in the room. I always feel like we are just those 5 guys from Boston and how did we end up here. It was a very humbling experience. The rest of the day was spent doing tons of European press and we didn’t finish until nighttime.
Thursday and Friday NKOTB was split into 2 groups so we could cover more ground. We went to Frankfurt, Munich, Cologne, Hamburg, Kiel, Hannover, Magdeburg and then all got back together in Berlin. We visited radio stations, TV stations, did print interviews and Internet outlets. It was great and felt really good to be so productive.
I need to personally thank Sven Kilthau-Lander, Jurgen Grebner, and the whole Universal Records staff for the amazing job they did in Germany. We are looking forward to all our future endeavors in Europe.
We are back in L.A. for tour rehearsals. September 18th is coming soon and we are so excited.

Love Danny

New Blog from Joey McIntyre

Joey posted a new blog at nkotb.com today

“Alle funf!!!!”
Means “all 5″ in German.
That’s all I can say in German so far.
We had a blast… a lot of work but having our fans show up
everywhere we go made it a lot easier.

The schnitzel was on point. And we couldn’t believe how tall
everyone was- men and women. Damn! I felt like Ryan Seacrest over there.

So its back to rehearsal and putting together the greatest show on earth
by the “5 hardest working kids in show business”.

Let’s get this!

HitRadio interview

Rumor: New Kids on the Block want to work with Madonna

This is from the same source that told us that the New Kids would be working with Michael Jackson (which Joey denied yesterday), but here's an article from The Mirror saying they want to work with Madonna:

New Kids On The Block want to work with Madonna
By 3am 11/07/2008

Not content with having Michael Jackson lined up for their big comeback, soon Madonna could be part of New Kids On The Block's return, too.

The band - who had hits in the late 80s with Hangin' Tough and You Got It (The Right Stuff) - are all set to work with Timbaland next week and hope the superproducer will pull some strings to get the Queen of Pop on board for their album, out in September.

NKOTB's Joey McIntyre revealed: "It's so exciting. We loved what Timbaland did with Madonna's 4 Minutes and can't wait to see what he has in store for us."

Jordan Knight added: "I know he's putting in a good word for us to have Madonna on the album. It's looking good. Fingers crossed!"

With Jacko and Madge both 50 next month, perhaps "New Kids" should seriously consider a name change...

Article from Spiegel.de

Spiegel.de posted an article about the New Kids. Click here to read in German. Below is the article in English translated with an internet translator.

Promi summit in Munich: The News kids on the block introduced its new album, and Til Schweiger passed by, around its clothe "1 1/2 knight" to rented per - then the elderly Boyband plays therein with. A single question remained at the same time openly: Who helps here whom?

Finally one was able to get yes the impression, would search Til Schweiger not for the occupation for a new film, but rather after guests for "bets that. ..?“. Again and again its production firm in the past weeks had announced prominent, that in its new film "1 1/2 knight - appear in search of the carrying away Herzelinde" : Fatih Akin, Johannes Heesters, Helmut mark word. Moreover Dieter Hallervorden, Roberto Blanco and - naturally - Thomas Gottschalk. In this unequal row, the inclined reader asked himself the same question, that also in every "bets, that. ..?“ -shipment arises: What connects these people actually – seen there from that they are prominent all?

In Munich, further guest stars imagined today now for Schweigers film: the New kids on the block, that mother of all Boybands, who 14 years ago actually had gone apart. Approximately 140 journalists had registered to the press conference in the cellar of the Sofitel Bayerpost hotels, and because it concerned the first press conference of the group in Europe, came round one-third of the journalists from foreign countries.

That Til Schweiger let see itself also at the organization and wanted to speak over its new film, provided at least at some German medium representatives for confusion. "Is the now one press conference over the New kids on the block or Til Schweiger", whispered a journalist. Or differently asked: Who supports here actually whom in the graduation? The New kids on the block Til Schweiger? Reversed or?

With waiter shirt, but without necktie

When the group finally appeared after a half hour delay, some journalists answered this question on its type: with a loud circle. What delivered at once also a certainty: The reflections of at that time function also 20 years later yet. To be sure Jonathan Knight, 39, Joey McIntyre, 35, Jordan Knight, 37, Donnie Wahlberg, 38 are, and Danny Wood, 38 in which years come, the eye they impress apparently yet always, also if its clothing style is declaration of war gaudily colored no more.

Up to Danny Wood and Jordan Knight, that gave the Jungspunde with hood sweater and T Shirt, the remaining group members in the style Jogi Löws appeared: sportingly elegantly with waiter shirt, but without necktie. One could say also: timely. The question is only whether the prototype of all Boygroups did not miss this time the correct moment. Take That and the cheek street Boys brought its comeback namely already behind itself.

Just as Til Schweiger. Its last film of "no ear rabbit", in which it led the administration that wrote script, and played the leading role, saw more than six million cinemagoers. The film is therewith the cash register success largest German of the last three years. Moreover Schweiger is established meanwhile so well in the film economy that he even can afford it not to allow missliebige journalists in press demonstrations and to threaten therewith, to call an against price to the German film price into life because the academy had not considered its film in this year's award of the Lolas – where Schweiger this connection even speaking challenges.

Such arguments should play no role in Munich today however. The record company universally announced proudly that the concerts of the NKOTB in the United States were sold out already after four minutes. And if the euphoria does not transfer itself to Germany, still the guest appearance remains in "1 1/2 knight", the Schweiger just in Saxony-Anhalt turns – that did not say the universally-PR-brigade naturally.

Nice music for little girl

Who helps here therefore whom? NKOTB have one in any case Schweiger ahead: They come from the United States, the longing country of all German Showstars. Also Gottschalk invites yes into each show an English language star guest, who sings, so that one doesn't have to interview it. And how Gottschalk also Schweiger lived a time long in Malibu whereby Schweiger retracted again to Germany, when the offers were limited from Hollywood.

Also NKOTB more calm with criticism concern than the German filmmaker. The "Mad" published itself 1991, on the height of its renown, -magazine once a cover, on that Alfred E. new man, the drawn Coverboy of the satire periodical that keeps closed ears with Klostampfern, because behind it the Boyband trällert. And a T Shirt that one was able to buy at that time showed a drawing with eight feet, who look forth under a block. Inscription: "New kids under the block".

Also on the press conference in Munich fell an around the other time that badly word of the retort group, but instead of throwing out the journalists, declared the group that the money would not have brought together, but rather the beautiful memories it again. And as Schweiger - schweigerlässig grinning - after an hour the stage entered, heard itself the group members quietly on, what the German end held the eighties of its group. "That was nice music for little girl. I heard HipHop and House", said it. So much to the criticism capacity.

The question remains collaborates, why Schweiger generally with the group – or NKOTB with Schweiger. "The record company has us joined", said Donnie Wahlberg, and Til Schweiger nodded good and emphasized turn out to be would become that the collaboration was super, the new Single very certainly a Nummer-1-Hit and would be it generally meanwhile an absolute fan.

A business on mutuality therefore: One knows also that yes of "bets that. ..?“.

N-Joy Interview with Jordan, Joey and Jonathan

I heard some of the radio interviews didn't air when they were scheduled... I'm not sure what happened, but maybe they just recorded them at those times, and they'll air them later.

Anyway, here is one of the radio interivews from N-Joy: http://nkotbsummertime.muxtape.com/ in which they deny the rumor about working with Michael Jackson

Article from the Daily Star Says New Kids will be at O2 Arena in London

Here is an article from the Daily Star

KID'S STUFF: BOYS BACK FOR BLOCK BUSTER
10th July 2008

BOYBAND legends New Kids On The Block have unveiled plans for a full UK tour and comeback album.

I was one of a handful of journalists granted a private chat with the pop dons at their comeback press conference in the German city of Munich.

And I am pleased to report that Donnie Wahlberg, 38, Danny Wood, 39, Joey McIntyre, 35, Jordan, 37, and brother Jon Knight, 38, are sounding brilliant, musically.

And personality-wise they are as charming, funny and sweet as my childhood dreams led me to believe.

Donnie revealed that the reunion came about after he heard a demo of the song Click, Click, Click – now on the lads’ new album.

It prompted him to get in touch with his old bandmates about returning to the studio.

He said: “It’s not like we fell off the face of the earth.

“We just collectively decided to stop working together, so coming back is a very natural thing. We experienced something magic together.”

The lads are now gearing up to release their first single Summertime on September 1, with an album of entirely new material following a week later.

In addition, they will tour America this autumn before reaching the UK, including London’s 02 Arena, in January.

The single will be their first since 1994, but despite the time lapse the gang were adamant they wouldn’t change the “Kids” to “Men”.

Joey told me: “We’re kids at heart. What’s in a name?”

Collaborations with Ne-Yo, 26, and Pussycat Dolls have given their sound a modern twist, but they say they’re not trying to break the mould with their new tunes.

Jordan explained: “We don’t feel we have to do a ground-breaking piece of art for everybody to say: ‘Whoa, they’re deep.’

“We are a boyband, and we do have girl fans and we like showing off and having fun. If it’s not
broke...”

And they are not back on the block because of Take That.

Jon insisted: “I couldn’t tell you what song they sang, or what they look like.”

Manbands at dawn: can’t wait.

New Kids on the Block to record with Michael Jackson?

Will the New Kids on the Block to record a song with Michael Jackson? Well, according to this article from the Mirror, it may happen.

Update: 9:17AM - Joey denied this rumor on a German radio station this morning.

New Kids & the Jack
EXCLUSIVE Boyband veterans join King of Pop
By Sarah Tetteh 10/07/2008

Michael Jackson is set to make a comeback with golden oldie boyband New Kids On The Block.
The King of Pop had secret talks about the link-up with the band's stars at his home in Nevada last week.

New Kids singer Donny Wahlberg, 38, said: "It's very exciting. It's one big party and everyone wants to join us." The pop veterans announced the plan as they celebrated the launch of their first reunion tour in 20 years which starts in September.

New Kids were the original US boyband and sold 80 million records with hits including Hanging Tough and Right Stuff.

And they are just some of the artists collaborating with Jacko, 49, as he attempts to revive his career following his acquittal three years ago of child abuse charges.

The Bad singer was due to release his much anticipated album this year to coincide with his 50th birthday.

But a source said: "He has been in the studio for months. He wants to create an amazing album and won't release anything until he is totally satisfied.

"He's a musical genius and record bosses want to leave him to develop his magic. It will be down to him when it is released."

Donnie Wahlberg explained at a news conference that "we reallybelieved in the music we were making and it was about the musicfirst."

The four new titles, "Two in The Morning", "click click click", "Single" and "Dirty Dancing" are in the Pop-R'n'B to establish.

For the first time the representatives present in Munich were able to see the accompanying video. The title "Dirty Dancing" will be featured in the new Til-Schweiger-film "1 1/2 knight - in search of the carrying away Herzelinde". In the film, the News Kids On The block will guest star and will perform the song in a medieval club. The actor and director Til Schweiger, was also at on the press conference, said the song "Dirty Dancing" is a "next Smash hit" with an "incredible Hook".

The five group members Danny Wood, Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre and both brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight, famous during the eighties and nineties with hits such as "Step By Step" on the international charts. The News Kids On The block were a prototype of the Boyband and paved the way for acts such as Take That, the Backstreet Boys and *Nsync. The News Kids On The block sold more than 80 million albums worldwide and were one of the most successful pop groups.

Meanwhile the five "New kids are kids", although some have kids of their own and are in their mid to late 30's. McIntyre: "We are however still kids, somehow." On the question, what the poor husbands should know, because its women are again in the NKOTB fever, answers Wahlberg: It "with to the concert (?)."

The group wants to address mostly fans in the age between 23 and 38 years. Numerous fans that were too young to go to concerts, could make up this now. From middle January 2009 the group will be on tour in Great Britain, Germany and the remainder of Europe is should follow. As of the end of September the Boygroup will be in the USA and Canada for their first concert tour.

Here is another one from dernewsticker.de (again just used an internet translator, so the grammer won't be perfect...)

Boygroup in the end thirties

Munich (ddp bay). Medium assembly, flashbulb thunderstorm and excited feminine fans: When New kids will announce on the block in Munich on Wednesday its comeback, all is almost like earlier - only the circle is missing. The reason: Before the door, no 14-year-olds with tooth clasp stand more, but rather beginning thirties with perm. "Today have I a little more discipline than earlier", says Sandra edge hook. Against the weak feeling in the stomach, however also its control can align nothing. The 29-year-old kneads hectically its hands and waits for its idols. "I feel me like 14", says the Duisburgerin.

Sandra and its friend Nicole shunned no effort in order to see its heros. Around 2.00 clock at night they rose, sat an hour later it in the train in order to be timely in Munich. "We want only a photo", says Sandra. "And that it us once see", pushes it afterwards. Next to it, Nicole pluck itself at the blond hairs. "I am quick and foxi", kalauert the 32-Jährige. Out of the pocket, it rummages a pink T Shirt, "Mrs. McIntyre" stands on that. Nicole grins. Joey McIntyre is its favorite in New kids on the block. His wife became not it, for that however Mrs. Yilam. Your husband has understanding for its Faible, says it.

In the 80ern and 90ern, News made kids on the block not only Sandra and Nicole weakly. In sold out halls all around the world girls tipped over in masses over. The US American group applies as a forerunner to other Boybands such as Take That or the cheek street Boys and sold Music according to its record company universally worldwide over 80 million disks. 1994 broke up is the group, it again there now - with new Single, new album and a world tour.

The hairs are shorter, the voices deeper: The past 14 years did not go past also Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre, Danny Wood and the brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight without a trace. In jeans, gym shoes and jacket, they sit in a citizen of Munich hotel in order to introduce for the first time its new Single "sum in Europe Time". The end of August is published it, follows in September a new album. Let it be a "magnificent" feeling to be back, says Wahlberg. Let the consistency in the volume be like earlier - and the reactions of the fans "overpowering". "It is almost so, as would be we never away been", means McIntyre.

Simply so do not continue want how early the five nevertheless. "We are more ripe become", says Wahlberg. Out of the Teenie age, they are long out. The oldest volume members are Danny Wood and Jonathan Knight at 39 years of age. Jordan Knight and Donnie Wahlberg are have meanwhile 38, McIntyre 35th four of them in the mean time children. Wahlberg and McIntyre worked in the past years as an actor, Wood and Jordan Knight as a maker and musician. Jonathan Knight earned its money in between as a real estate agent.

From immediately, they are again full time singer. In the autumn goes comes the group on world tour, from middle January it also to Europe. Your choreographies not obviously forgot the five during the years-long recess. In the new video to "sum Time" the obligatory dance enclosure is not missing.

Sandra and Nicole are enthused. At the end, they press with the remaining feminine fans on its idols to in order to manage to grab an autograph. The 14 years are wiped off for both how. "The five were always in our heart", says Nicole. Now they are also again in its disk shelf.

New article from sueddeutsche.de

Sueddeutsche.de posted a new article about the press conference. Unfortunately, it's in German. So if you know German, go here to read the article. Otherwise, here is the article in English using an internet translator. Funny note: apparently "Wahlberg" is German for "Choice Mountain":)

With Til Schweiger around the block oh, oh, yeah: The Boyband veterans of New kids on the block strive on the pop mount Olympus back. Can whether Til Schweiger help? On the press conference in Munich, the "kids" caused bored above all. Of Marita canes "And now my ladies and gentlemen, have the opportunity unique worldwide to hear" the first songs of the new New-Kids-on-the-Block-CD: The enthusiastic PR adviser skips himself almost while the present journalists view only irritated.

A half hour they wait is in the citizen of Munich five-star-hotel already for the Boyband, but of that far and to see extend no trace. Already the first tact of the song "Two in the Morning" resound out of the loudspeakers, and on a blow, one feels moves back into the early nineties.

With funky electro rhythms, the high song is lower puts, the voices easily are distorted and clearly digitally processed after. The question imposes itself whether Joey McIntyre, Jonathan Knight, Donnie wahlberg, Jordan Knight and Danny Wood renovated for its yet nameless new album, that appears in September, if possible simply a couple of song old.

Since the separation the group 14 years passed, want to try now it yet once and can serve with little new. Not only the melodies sound trusted, also the texts come one well known before. "Girl, I' ll be your boyfriend. Oh, oh, oh, yeah", butter it in tested manner.

When the video is played back to the first Single "summertime", calls of the Verzückung are to be heard out of the journalist rows softly. The PR adviser, who must find the music by profession because of super, groovt in addition on its place back and forth.

"How does it feel itself to be back?", asks it when the five Bostoner sit finally on the platform. "Magnificently", finds Joey McIntyre, but a more exact answer remains from. The boys seem to amuse themselves best about that.

New hypes around old acquaintance you are happening sympathetic and, yes, it look still well, but one becomes the impression not, the five would have already now no more desire on the entire Trubel. They are in the mean time almost 40, emphasize to be sure a little too often how ripe and adult they would be now.

Your music in any case sticks still in the childrens' shoe. Can whether they enthuse new fans therewith? The old fans at least seem activated to be. The first concerts of the tour, that will start in the autumn 2008 in Canada and the USA, were sold out within four minutes.

No hinge, no points that "New kids on the block are a group out of friends, we are us as near as brothers" to be assured Donnie wahlberg, that is responsible not only for the consolidation, but rather also the declared spokesman the group seems. Next to it, only Joey McIntyre answers hear sometimes others on the questions of the journalists, that three to, smile and cause absently.

Knight of the chalkboard round first as after a tight hour Til Schweiger the platform enters, thaw it up. The director of "barefoot" and "no ear rabbit" the group in its new film "1 ½ knight - gave a guest roll in search of the carrying away Herzelinde" as a medieval Castingband. Now he wants to interrogate let himself over the cooperation. That no questions at it has.

And then Schweiger also yet must admit that it was able to begin earlier with the News kids nothing and would have belonged to dear Snoop Dogg and Techno. Nevertheless: He makes himself well in its row, has approximately the same age, carries also still jeans and T Shirt and belongs also to the category of former woman swarm.

Almost one wishes for would have encountered the five men, it all in Boston with its families to the Barbecue, Til Schweiger invited, a little the good old times thought and rest let music business and film business exceptionally once.
