NKOTB's New Year's Eve Concert Cancelled

The New Kids on the Block have cancelled their concert in New York on New Year's Eve. Here is the statement posted on the official website:

Wow what a year for all of us.

It started by ringing in the New Year with Ryan Seacrest and Dick Clark in Times Square and another sold out cruise that created memories that will last a lifetime. The US leg of the NKOTBSB tour played to a record 55 shows and over 600,000 people including the gig of our lives at Fenway Park that we got to share with all of you.

As you know, no New Kids event is complete without the chance to share it with our fans. On that note, after significant consideration, we have decided to cancel the New Years Eve event in New York City. The reason for this is while it’s apparent some of you could join us, a vast majority of you couldn’t due other obligations that you have on this holiday. We heard from so many of you that this date just couldn’t work. We’re sorry for any inconvience. It’s just so important to us that these events can be shared with all of you.

We’re so excited for the year ahead which will include our first trip back to Europe since 2009, additional NKOTBSB tour legs soon to be announced, another sold out cruise and additional NKOTB North American touring plans and very special events. We would be nothing without your love and support and appreciate your understanding on this needed change. Should anyone be unable to get out of any travel obligations, please send an email to and we will do our best to assist you.

We wish you the happiest of holidays. Spend it with your loved ones and we’ll see you in 2012!

So bummed! It would have been my sister and I's first Ultimate. It was sold out so I am sure many fans could go. I am sad I won't be ringing in the New Year in NYC, always has been a dream of mine. But it was also a dream of mine to see the New Kids again in my adulthood so I will hang on to those memories. Sorry it didn't work out. Your management should have waited until after Thanksgiving, it's sort of putting a sour spin on the holiday.

Maybe if people had more notice then they could have made it, unfortunately leaving it till the last minutes doesn't give people time to prepare.
