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.
