Introducing New Kids on the Block Flashback


This is the site for all the current news and media about the New Kids on the Block, but I thought why not start a new blog dedicated to all the "old" stuff.  So check out http://nkotbflashback.blogspot.com/ and let me know what you think!

Boston Herald: Possible NKOTB and BSB show at Fenway

The Boston Herald is reporting a possible Fenway Park NKOTBSB show:

New Kids, Backstreet make play for Fenway show
Boy bands of summer
By Thomas Grillo

Reunited boy bands New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys hope to show off their choreographed dance moves and smooth harmonies at a Fenway Park [map] concert this summer, the Herald has learned.

The Boston Red Sox [team stats] applied for show permits for Saturday, June 11 and Sunday, June 12, when the team is out of town for a series in Toronto. But the bands would have to rearrange their schedules to play the storied ballpark.

The groups have already booked and sold tickets to perform at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y., on the 11th of June and the Izod Center in East Rutherford, N.J., on the 12th. A source close to the situation said the groups would reschedule one of those shows to make the Fenway date a reality.

“The New Kids really want to play Fenway,” said a second source familiar with the plan. “They grew up here going to shows at the Boston Garden and ballgames at Fenway. This is their heritage. They’re coming home. They are willing to reroute a bit to play Fenway.”

The Fenway show would come just days after the bands’ June 4 show at Boston’s TD Garden, which quickly sold out when tickets for the “NKOTBSB” tour went on sale Dec. 11.

The Sox’ permit application does not list what band will perform. A Red Sox spokeswoman referred calls to concert promoter Live Nation, which did not return a call seeking comment yesterday. Kristen Foster, a spokeswoman for the bands, declined to comment.

Ever since John Henry and company bought the Red Sox in 2002, they’ve been seeking ways to squeeze more revenue out of the 98-year-old park through non-baseball events.

Fenway’s summer concert series started in 2003, when Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band sold out two shows. Since then, Jimmy Buffett, the Rolling Stones, Dave Matthews Band, the Police, Neil Diamond, Phish, Paul McCartney and Aerosmith have performed at Fenway.

The New Kids, founded in the 1980s by producer Maurice Starr, broke up in 1994 but have been “Hangin’ Tough” since reuniting three years ago. The pop group’s members - brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood - hit their hometown of Boston during a 2008 tour.

The Backstreet Boys - A.J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter - formed in Orlando, Fla., in 1993 and have sold more than 130 million records.

People.com: Baby No. 3 on the Way for Joey McIntyre

Here is an article from people.com about a new baby on the way for Joey:

Baby No. 3 on the Way for Joey McIntyre
By Sarah Michaud


The block is filling up fast: Joey McIntyre and wife Barrett are expecting their third child.


The family will welcome their third child in May, his rep confirms to PEOPLE. The new addition joins big brothers Rhys Edward, 1, and Griffin Thomas, 3.


"Barrett and I are so blessed and grateful for the little one on the way," says McIntyre, 37. "We'll have our hands full. Three's the new nine!"


The New Kids on the Block singer, one of nine children himself, wed Barrett in Aug. 2003 at New York City's Plaza Hotel.

Donnie featured in audiobook of "The Town: A Novel"


Donnie is featured in audiobook of "The Town: A Novel".

Here is the summary from Amazon.com

Four masked men—thieves, rivals, and friends from the tough streets of Charlestown—take on a Boston bank at gunpoint. Holding bank manager Claire Keesey hostage and cleaning out the vault were simple. But career criminal Doug MacRay didn’t plan on one thing: falling hard for Claire. When he tracks her down without his mask and gun, their mutual attraction is undeniable. With a tenacious FBI agent following his every move, he imagines a life away from his gritty, dangerous work—a life centered around Claire. But before that can happen, Doug and his crew learn that there may be a way to rob Boston’s venerable baseball stadium, Fenway Park. Risky yet utterly irresistible, it would be the perfect heist to end his criminal career and begin a new life. But, as it turns out, pursuing Claire may be the most dangerous act of all.Racing to an explosive climax, The Town is a brash tale of robbery in all its forms—and an unforgettable odyssey of crime, love, ambition, and dreams.

Joey's latest blog

Joey posted a new blog on his website:

11/23/2010 - thankful for you
Here come the holidays...wow. I guess I can't say "where has the time gone?", because it has been a full year. Many many things have happened along the way. I feel though that I have grown a lot since the beginning of the year. Take for instance the 6 dates I did in January. I look back and it that feels like '99, which is nice in a way because that means I must have felt young, with something to prove. That little mini tour was alot- a lot of of fun, but a lot. I was fueled by my drive for independence after being with the "Kids" for the previous 2 years. I had something to say apart from what we were doing. I am thoroughly happy with what came out of that "drive". My CD Here We Go Again is something I love and love to catch up on from time to time. I hope you guys are still enjoying it. But after that independent streak ran its course, I was reinvigorated to get back with the guys and create another "moment". The cruise '10 and the CasiNO Tour are now part of New Kids lore. Another amazing chapter. Since then I have been working on a few things that I hope will see the light of day soon. I don't want to rush it though. Something I am working on- hurry and indecision. Staying centered and really listening to what works for me and what will bring me the most peace. Easier said than done, but "putting it out there."

Mixed in there is the pleasant surprise of me and Eman performing together again, which is a wild ride, but something we both take very seriously and of which we get so much. There is more to come from One Too Many for sure. Maybe sooner than we think.

And then we have the juggernaut that is NKOTBSB. Above all it is fun. I don't think any of us thought we, all 9 of us, would be enjoying it this much. But why shouldn't we. We are blessed. The AMA's were special. I felt very connected to you, our fans, in a way that felt different. As I mentioned in a tweet, its gotta feel good to see your boys and "Boys" up there after all these years of supporting us and have us received the way we were. The performance was fun. And objectively speaking, kind of spectacular- a sneak peak for sure. But now we have to top it. Now we have to back it up. I believe we will. We are just a bunch of guys singing songs and dancing, so I don't mean to sound more important than it is, but music, and art and dance and laughter are so very important in life and we are so very honored to play a role in that essential part of your life. This Thanksgiving I am once again thankful for you -jm

Boston.com: Joey McIntyre now an advocate for deaf

Here's an article from Boston.com. Thanks to Mary for the link.




A song of hope, dedicated to his son
Joey McIntyre now an advocate for deaf
By Mark Shanahan, Globe Staff | October 9, 2010

Joey McIntyre and his wife, Barrett, were in an office at UCLA Medical Center when a grim-faced technician walked in with the results of their son’s hearing test and told them that 10-day-old Rhys Edward McIntyre had severe hearing loss.

“She started talking about sign language and schools for the deaf,’’ said McIntyre, a member of the Boston-bred boy band New Kids on the Block who has been singing on stage since the third grade. “We were like, ‘Huh?’ We just wanted to get out of there and go home.’’

The irony of having a baby who might never hear him sing didn’t register right away with McIntyre. Instead, he and his wife were in shock, overwhelmed by what they didn’t know and their son’s prospects for a normal life.

Nine months later, that is changing. The couple understands that a diagnosis of deafness is not a disaster, and they’re learning about treatment options, which have improved greatly over the past 25 years. McIntyre and his wife have also made a commitment to help others facing the same uncertain future. The singer will be at a gala in New York for The Center for Hearing and Communication, and New Kids on the Block are performing Wednesday at a fund-raiser for Massachusetts Eye and Ear, which developed the test used to screen infants — including Rhys — for hearing loss. McIntyre says it is just the beginning of his efforts for the cause.

“It’s nice to be asked,’’ McIntyre, 38, said on the phone from Los Angeles. “I’m happy to be of service whatever way I can.’’

The invitation was extended by Wyc Grousbeck, the Celtics CEO who is chairman of the Mass. Eye and Ear board of directors. The father of a student at Perkins School for the Blind, Grousbeck has devoted years — and millions of dollars — to research related to blindness. He knows what McIntyre and his wife are grappling with, but he also knows there is reason for hope.

“My son is 17, plays in a rock band, studies physics, and has a girlfriend. He’s amazing,’’ said Grousbeck. “I’m sure Joey and I will be talking father to father.’’

Advocate is a new role for McIntyre but one he’s well suited to: He knows how to get people’s attention.

With eight older siblings, he was rarely without an audience as a child growing up in Jamaica Plain. Encouraged by his mother, Katherine, he made his musical theater debut at the age of 8, singing “Gary, Indiana’’ from “The Music Man’’ at the Footlight Club in JP.

“When Joseph finished his little song, the audience wouldn’t stop clapping,’’ said his sister Carol Gallagher, who has performed at the venerable Footlight for years.

Less than a decade later, McIntyre was in New Kids on the Block, the youngest of five pinups who performed to stadiums of screaming girls. Between 1988 and 1994, the teen sensations — forbearers of Backstreet Boys, ‘N Sync, and 98 Degrees — sold more than 35 million records and even more tchotchkes, from beach towels to marbles.

Life after NKOTB included stints on and off-Broadway, TV appearances on “Boston Public’’ and “Dancing with the Stars,’’ a couple of movies, six solo CDs, and, in 2003, a wedding. McIntyre met his wife — a Princeton graduate who moved to Los Angeles with a vague plan of becoming a producer — while she was working as a real estate agent.

“Joe was my first client. They told me he was in New Kids on the Block, so I thought he was going to be, like, ‘Yo, let’s find a crib,’ ’’ said Barrett, laughing. “He wasn’t. Joe is really smart and funny and sweet, but he wasn’t my type. I kept telling my mom he’s the nicest guy. I knew if I didn’t go for it, I’d regret it.’’

The couple’s first child, Griffin, was born healthy three years ago. Then came Rhys. The results of a hearing test done the day after he was born raised red flags, so more tests were ordered. Last December, two days before Christmas, the couple was summoned to UCLA Medical Center.

“It was awful. I’ll go right out and say it,’’ Barrett said. “I was caught up in ‘What happened?’ I’d made him. He was in my belly. I was looking for reasons.’’

The couple didn’t tell their families immediately, taking a few days to digest the news. They quickly discovered that Rhys’s condition isn’t that uncommon — about 1 in 1,000 babies are born with hearing loss — and advances in technology have made it possible for even severely impaired children to hear. Cochlear implants, for example, a surgically implanted electronic device, can help profoundly deaf people to perceive sound.

“I think Joseph and Barrett realized, in the scheme of things, it could be much worse,’’ said Gallagher, McIntyre’s sister. “We also joked that our family is so loud it might not be an issue at all.’’

Because his hearing loss was detected early, Rhys began working with an audio verbal therapist when he was 2 months old. Today he has hearing aids and is making progress. Cochlear implants are an option but may not be necessary.

“What I do is guide and teach parents so they’re doing what they need to do with their child 24/7,’’ said Rhys’s therapist, Sylvia Rotfleisch. “His parents are proactive and delightful. They’re down on the floor playing with their son and they adore him. He’s making lovely, age-appropriate progress, and that’s very exciting.’’

McIntyre said it’s not easy raising a child with hearing loss, but it isn’t a tragedy either. He and his wife have a dance party at home every night, and Rhys is right there, moving to the music with his older brother.

“He’s the cutest, chubbiest 9-month-old baby you’ll ever see, the greatest kid in the world,’’ McIntyre said. “It’s, like, the more you know, the easier this becomes.’’

That’s why he’s happy to be speaking and performing at Wednesday’s event for Mass. Eye and Ear, the 186-year-old hospital and world-renowned research center. The sold-out event at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel is a fund-raiser for Mass. Eye and Ear’s new Cures for Kids Fund.

“Frankly, we have our hands full at the moment,’’ McIntyre said. “But look at Wyc [Grousbeck]. When your children are born with this kind of challenge, everything else is out the window.’’

The New Kids on the Block Love Women's Breasts. Gabby Reese Has Strong Words for Obama

By Jo Piazza Monday, June 21, 2010 2:30 PM ET

In a surprise to this Anti-Gossip writer, the New Kids on the Block prove that like a fine wine, they get better with age. Gabby Reese Calls on President Obama to Be a Big Bad Mama Jamma!!

Women in their 30s Love NKOTB More than Ever

It was hard to imagine the crowd at the New Kids on the Block concert at Radio City Music Hall on Friday night getting any more emotional than they already were as the five former boy banders (now man banders?) crooned "Please Don't Go Girl." But they did. There wasn't a dry eye in the house as the guys brought out a $110,000 check made out to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Band member Danny Wood lost his mother, Betty, to breast cancer in September 1999. Since then, the band has sold special NKOTB tank tops and donated portions of ticket sales to breast cancer charities in Betty's honor.

"Through all of this, I wish my mother were here to see it, but I know in my heart that she sees it every night," Danny told the crowd of wildly emotional women (and three men).

Danny's declaration ended up in a group hug that felt so genuine that I want to rename these now-approaching-middle-aged crooners, The Brotherhood of the Traveling Pants.

While talking to Joey McIntyre before the show, he told me brotherhood is actually pretty accurate.

"We are more like brothers than buddies. We're not each others only best friends. We have lives outside the group and we're not brothers, but we are somewhere in between," Joey said. "We have this unique and cool relationship and you know I think it is a kick that we all still want to do this together. These guys wanting to do it, just makes me want to do it more."

If their fans have anything to say about it, the guys will be doing it for a lot longer than they ever anticipated when they shot to fame as the sexiest 18-year-olds in America (yeah Bieber you weren't the first).

Joey told me they will happily keep performing after they collect their AARP cards.

"If our fans want to see us and someone asks us then of course we will be doing it."

Jordan and Snooki article from People.com

Jordan was mentioned briefly on people.com:

Snooki's Main Squeeze: A New Kid on the Block?

He may be from Boston, but that doesn't mean New Kid on the Block Jordan Knight doesn't have a favorite girl in Jersey!

After Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi Tweeted to Knight, "Wanna meet up since your [sic] in town? We can finally fist pump together," Knight replied, "I'd love to Snooks.... Lemme know. I'm all yours."

Knight, who is in the area to perform at New York's Radio City Music Hall, continued Tweeting for love: "Just so you all know .... I'm yours forever not just a few fist pumps."

Say what? Knight then Tweeted, "Wow .... that sounded very dirty and very sweet all at the same time."

But it looks like Snooki's bravado isn't as big as her poof: The reality star hasn't replied to Knight.

Donnie's new TV Show "Blue Bloods" to air this Friday's this fall

Donnie's new TV Show "Blue Bloods" to air on Friday evenings this fall on CBS.

Here is a review from Zap2It.com:

"Blue Bloods"

Out of all the dramas presented by CBS, this is the one we find most intriguing. Today's cop show tends to focus on the workplace, only giving us glimpses of our characters' families when they're relevant to the case. "Blue Bloods," however, seeks to show viewers the police force through the unique perspective of a multi-generational family of dedicated NYPD officers. Tom Selleck is as compelling as ever in the glimpse we got, but we couldn't help but focus on Donnie Wahlberg's character, a detective, and Selleck's son. Wahlberg's character was unapologetically violent, to the point where we wanted to turn our heads as he smashed a perp's face into a toilet seat. This is definitely where it belongs in the Friday night 10 p.m. timeslot. We'll definitely be tuning into this one, because while the brutality makes us squeamish, we're interested to see if it can maintain a balance between a character-driven show and a typical cop procedural.

Exclusive: Donnie Wahlberg bosses around Angie Harmon in TNT drama
by Michael Ausiello
Categories: Scoop

Donnie Wahlberg has booked a two-episode arc on Rizzoli & Isles, TNT’s forthcoming drama series starring Law & Order’s Angie Harmon and NCIS‘ Sasha Alexander.

The ex-Boomtown thesp will play Sgt. Joey Grant, a childhood friend of Harmon’s Boston homicide detective who’s now working as her boss. “Their relationship is equal parts attraction and loathing,” says a TNT source.

Slated to premiere in July, Rizzoli & Isles centers on the friendship between crime-solving friends Jane Rizzoli (Harmon) and medical examiner Maura Isles (Alexander).

Sopranos vet Lorraine Bracco costars as Harmon’s mother.

04/06/2010 - The Great One We have just announced that we are playing the Fillmore in Miami on the Thursday before the cruise. First of all we haven't played Miami in a long long time- yes the Miami area-ish, but not Miami. So that is special. Second, The Fillmore is in South Beach... ah, my youth on South Beach- good times...nice to relive it in a safe way :) Third, The Fillmore is a very cool brand (as they say in the industry) so you know the vibe is gonna be right. Fourth, the Fillmore used to be called the Jackie Gleason Theatre. You know what they used to call him? "The Great One". I spent a lot of time in Miami when I would go down with my dad to business conventions and then it was the natch spot to get away from the Boston winters. As a young man, I pulled a few "almost" all-nighters down there. And during the day, I would often pass the Jackie Gleason Theatre and think, "Some day." I mean he was/is the Great One and I just always loved the locale of that theatre, so once again the New Kids check another one off the list of Joey McIntyre's Show Biz Wish List. Thanks, guys... 5 brothers and a million sisters- it gets you in.

Donnie has been in New York filming his TV pilot for "Reagan's Law". He was mentioned in the Boston Globe recently.

Wahlberg Protection Program: BostonHerald.com

Here is a recent article (and photo) from BostonHerald.com


Wahlberg Protection Program
Guest-starring on USA’s ‘In Plain Slight,’ ex-New Kid Donnie joins up
By Gayle Fee and Laura Raposa Sunday, March 28, 2010 http://www.bostonherald.com The Inside Track


Photo by USA Network
When the writers of USA Network’s “In Plain Sight” needed a Boston guy to throw into the Witness Protection Program, they needed to look no further than Donnie Wahlberg.

The Dorchester homey guest stars on Wednesday’s season premiere as a Hub truck hijacker who is hiding out in New Mexico with his teenage son and new family.

“There are certain times when fame and success have become challenging and hiding out has seemed really appealing to me,” said Wahlberg, who spent last week in Toronto filming the CBS cop show “Reagan’s Law” with Tom Brady [stats]’s baby mama No. 1, Bridget Moynahan.

“I’ve traveled to some real obscure towns and thought what it would be like to set up shop here and disappear. But I’d eventually go stir crazy and miss all that I take for granted.”

Like Twitter, we assume!

Usually, when Donnie’s in a new town, he sends out Tweets to meet his obsessively devoted New Kids fans - whom he calls “soldiers” - to get a feel for the locals.

But to get into character for his witness protection gig, Donnie said he flew to New Mexico - where the Mary McCormack-Frederick Weller drama films - a week early and “laid low.”

“Living life on the run and living with a false identity is a hard thing to do,” he said. “Fugitives sometimes turn themselves in because they can’t live with the pressure.”

As for playing a Boston underworld figure, that wasn’t too hard to master.

“There’s always someone to draw on, someone you pluck off the street - a friend, a cousin, an uncle,” said Wahlberg. “It’s the worst thing in the world to get it wrong because there’s that added pressure to get it right. If you stink it up as a Boston guy, I will get a lot of flack when I come home!”

BTW, Wahlberg’s Charlestown cop drama, “Bunker Hill,” which also starred Moynahan, “turned out great,” he said.

“It just sort of didn’t fit timing-wise for TNT,” said Donnie. “So it was rebuild it or try something else.” Hence, “Reagan’s Law.”

So now that Donnie’s spending lots of time on the tube, what programs does he TiVo?

“I’m a big reality TV guy,” he laughed. “I don’t know why I like trainwreck TV - ‘Bad Girls Club,’ ‘Tool Academy’ and ‘Jersey Shore.’ But I also like ‘The Dog Whisperer,’ ‘Iron Chef’ and ‘Chopped.’ ”

(Coincidentally, in his ‘In Plain Sight’ episode, his character owns a diner that is known for its popovers.)

“I tend to gravitate to reality TV to turn off my brain,” he told the Track. “I work a lot - you know I work 22 or 23 hours a day - and I need to be able to tune out with ‘Tool Academy.’ ”

Donnie said he was also a fan of “The Shield,” which starred Andover homey Michael Chiklis as a cop working on the edge, and “The Sopranos” cast because they weren’t “typical Hollywood leading men. They were regular guys.”

File Under: “Sight” Seeing.

New Blog From Joey

Joey posted a new blog on his site in responce to the recent People magazine article, which by the way is now available online (w/ extra pics) here.

First, let me say how overwhelmed we are by the tons of well wishes we got from so many people. Every message went directly to our hearts. We thank you so much for your love and support.

A lot of the feedback from the People magazine piece was just simple good wishes, but there was a lot of fascinating, heart-felt, informed discussion about the different paths for deaf and hard of hearing people. As you can imagine (although maybe not until you are touched by something like this) the views are many and varied.

We heard from people who have loved ones, children, siblings, fathers, mothers, with hearing loss and heard their stories. Every story is enlightening and again we are so grateful to those who have shared.

As the spectrum of hearing loss is great, so too are the points of view on how to treat it. There are some who say that we should do nothing as far as hearing aids or implants with Rhys. The theory being he is perfect the way he is, God meant him to be that way and he is blessed to be that way. I can totally appreciate that choice. I believe that this is a gift. That his hearing loss will lead him down a path of great things. He will have a special perspective in life that he would never have if he was a fully hearing person. I can not wait to watch that perspective grow and learn from his life.

Some have said that we should wait until Rhys is old enough to chose for himself, whether or not he wants the coclear implant. That operation is irreversable, so I can appreciate that arguement as well.


We do not know where he stands as far as being a candidate for cochear implants. It will take sometime. He is not deaf. He has alot of usable hearing and so he could be able to hear enough with "regular" hearing aids. I do know that all the people and families we have talked to have raved about the coclear implants and consider them a miracle. But like I said there are so many different paths and every person with hearing loss is different. One thing is for certain, the more information the better. My wife and I were pouring over the responses to the article on People.com and your feedback will serve us well. We do not know what our decision will be right now. We are learning more everyday. We are strong and we are blessed and everyday is a gift, but there are some tough, frustrating moments. We will forever consider your feedback as a treasure trove to open whenever we need a little lift. I cant wait for when People Magazine does a 10 year check-in with Rhys and he and Griffin can pick their own outfits! What will they wear??

All our love,

The McIntyres

Donnie to guest-star on "In Plain Sight"

According to fancast.com Donnie to guest-star on "In Plain Sight" Season 3 premiere on March 31 (on USA Network). It sounds like this show tapes in New Mexico, so this is probably what he was working on a few weeks back...

‘In Plain Sight’ Sets Sights on Wahlberg, Others
by Matt Webb Mitovich

Donnie Wahlberg will be the new kid on the block when he guest-stars on ‘In Plain Sight’s Season 3 premiere.

OK, technically he’ll be the new grown man on the block as he plays the relocated witness-of-the-week on the March 31 season opener.

Wahlberg represents the first of many guest stars in ‘In Plain Sight’s sights this season.

Four-time Emmy winner Allison Janney (’The West Wing’) will appear in multiple episodes as a U.S Marshal who butts heads with Mary, while Steven Weber (’Studio 60,’ ABC’s upcoming ‘Happy Town’) will play a charming FBI agent.

Also, Tess Harper (’No Country for Old Men’) will guest as a take-no-prisoners federal prosecutor, Josh Cooke (’Four Kings’) will play the very first witness Mary and Marshall handled, and Oscar/Emmy/Grammy winner Rita Moreno is heading for some wedding planning, as Raph’s (Cristian de la Fuente) Aunt Rita.
