Donnie Wahlberg Interview with Vindy.com

Donnie did an interview with Vindy.com. He talks about the future of NKOTB, the NKOTBSB tour and more.

By John Benson

The fact that millions of adult women could be heard screaming this past New Year’s Eve shouldn’t be a surprise. However, what may have caught many onlookers off guard was that the screams — and more than likely tears — emanated from the joint performance of New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) and Backstreet Boys on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.”

That pandemonium now is carrying over to the boy bands’ combined “NKOTBSB Tour,” which comes to Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena on Wednesday.

The Vindicator talked to Donnie Wahlberg — who also is an accomplished actor appearing on the CBS-TV series “Blue Bloods” this fall — about the reunited New Kids on the Block, the fans and the future.

Q. Obviously, before the NKOTB reunion in 2008, you figured one day the act would reunite, but did you ever think it would lead to sold-out arenas?

A. I didn’t know for sure it would happen. I mean, somewhere inside I guess I suppose I knew it was always a possibility, but I wasn’t going to do it just to do it. It wasn’t really until I was going through a divorce that I just wanted to write songs and do something else to sort of have an outlet for what I was dealing with. I wanted to write music again, and that’s kind of what inspired it. I financed it and I got the guys on board to join in with me on that, so I guess in some ways, I knew it would be successful.
Q. Presumably, original fans of NKOTB are now in their mid-20s to mid-30s. Why are they still interested in the band?

A. I guess what really surprised me was the spirit of the fans. The way they’ve come back and the sort of level of emotion and energy they brought. It seemed like a lot of people really needed an outlet for whatever reason. The war is going on. I’ve met so many women whose husbands are fighting overseas, and they say, “My husband told me to come to the concert.” Or it’s women who went through a divorce or just simply people who grew up and stopped being kids and stopped being alive. They got jobs; they got kids of their own, responsibilities and mortgages, and the economy is crashing, and it’s like they needed an escape plan, and for whatever reason, we seemed to elicit something in them that reconnected us to them.

Q. How did the Backstreet Boys partnership come together?

A. There was a mention of them being our opening act at one point, and I scoffed at that personally. I thought it was underselling the Backstreet Boys, and NKOTB and Backstreet Boys. We invited them to our Radio City concert, and the reaction from the crowd when they came out on stage with us was so ... when you’ve been in this business for as long as I have, there are very few reactions that surprise you anymore. We’ve seen it all. And somehow, this reaction we’ve never seen before.

Q. Considering you are now divorced, it must be a different dynamic meeting your original prepubescent fans who now are grown women showing their affection?

A. I don’t do this to get women. I hate to sound corny about it, but I’d much rather stand outside of a venue after a concert and shake 2,000 hands and take pictures with as many people as possible then I would to be shacked up on my bus with some chick. It’s that kind of an experience for me.

Q. Does NKOTB material stand up for you?

A. We have to find ways to make it stand up. Some of it does and some doesn’t. Our song “I’ll Be Loving You” is a classic for our audience, and the only thing we can do to that song is mess it up. So we leave that as is, and then a song like “Cover Girl,” which I’ve never been a big fan of singing, I’ve had to sort of spice it up a little bit and make it more fun and grown-up. It would be hard to take the original version of that song seriously as a 41-year-old guy. “The Right Stuff,” I don’t like it. I don’t know if I ever liked that song, but when we perform it, it’s one of the biggest moments of the night, every night. The building shakes when that song starts, and it is what it is.

Q. Finally, what’s the future hold for NKOTB?

A. I don’t know. I think we just have to keep finding ways to make it fresh for us and the fans while maintaining the foundation of who we are. If we can do that, NKOTB can go on a little bit longer. And if we can’t, it’ll get stale and old real fast for everybody, and I’m not going to partake in that.

Jordan Knight Interview with the Calgary Herald

Here is an interview with Jordan from The Calgary Herald:

Knight Time: New Kid enjoying spotlight second time around


Jordan Knight notices a distinct difference in the reaction he and the New Kids on the Block are getting these days during their current tour with fellow veteran boy band the Backstreet Boys, when compared to their late ’80s heyday.

Sure, they’re still packing arenas with wild, vocal, mostly female audiences, but the sound of the crowd is, shall we say, slightly more mature.

“It’s a little less high-pitched,” he says and laughs. “It has a little more purr to it.”

That is just one of the many noticeable now vs. then comparisons Knight and his fellow bandmates are making. Not surprising, really, considering the time that has passed for everyone and all that has gone on since he and the other four New Kids — Donnie Wahlberg, Joe McIntyre, Danny Wood, and Jordan’s brother Jonathan — were chosen for the act during a Boston teen talent search. Millions of albums sold, tours around the world, insane marketing campaigns, a breakup in the mid-’90s, solo careers, acting careers and, finally, four years ago the members regrouped — it’s been nothing short of a long strange trip.

And while the singer is mindful of the transformations that have taken place in his fans, he’s also quick to point out how different he is these days.

“I am having a lot of fun and I’m getting a lot of satisfaction, because it’s kind of like we have a second chance to do it right, or at least do things different, to learn from our mistakes and do it again,” he says before expanding. “Such as mostly to soak it in more to experience more to give more, actually. In the past, when we first hit stardom 20 years ago, I was kind of shell-shocked and in my own little bubble. And this time around I’m out of the bubble. I’m able to experience people more and how we are actually touching people’s lives and helping them relive memories.

“I think I’m a little more selfless now.”

He’s also, he says, perhaps a little less cynical this time around. Knight admits that at their peak and, of course, on their way down NKOTB were something of a critical target — hammered because of their fabricated nature and even their good looks, they were seen as the epitome of style over substance. Much of that ire, he admits, has subsided, but even if it hadn’t he’s in a much better place to deal with it

“Now, I think people are a lot more accepting of us. We’re more coasting along,” he says. “I don’t resent it, not at all. I don’t resent it. Even if I did resent it and I thought it was unfair I’m way past that and beyond it.”

As for the current tour, which sees the band teaming up with its supposed boy band rivals — despite the fact the Backstreet Boys came almost a decade after the Kids’ height — the shows are also going along, according to most parties, quite smoothly. The idea for the dreamy team actually grew out of a NKOTB show at Radio City Music Hall, which they invited the Boys to, and then offered to share the stage with them for one song.

“People’s jaws just dropped,” says Knight about the immediate response from their fans. “The reaction was crazy and we got so much press from that particular show and that particular moment that all of our wheels started spinning, like, ‘Wow, this could be a cool tour.’ . . .

“We all love what we do, so it was an easy sell for both groups.”

Logistics aside — of getting all of the members schedules in order, as well as putting a cohesive show together for a 41-city North American NKOTBSB tour — Knight says things came together surprisingly easy, including between all of the various personalities.

“To do this tour, we all needed to check our egos at the door. And I think we’re doing a good job. The good thing also (about) doing it 20 years later, is that . . . the older you get the more you’re able to tame your ego and see the big picture,” he says.

“What so sweet about this time around is that everybody’s older and wiser. We know why this tour sold, it’s because both groups joined together and teamed up. And it’s because of that team that we’re doing this.

“Of course we want equal billing, equal time on stage all that kind of stuff, and we work all that out and everybody knows that’s only fair.”

One thing that unfortunately fans of Knight won’t get the opportunity to hear during the show is some of his own solo material. The singer just released a slick new album, Unfinished, which is his first solo effort in five years and features collaborations with writers and producers who’ve worked with Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.

It’s been a little bit of a hectic time for Knight, trying to balance his New Kids duties with promoting his new project — which was released on his own music imprint and has already sent a pair of singles, Let’s Go Higher and Stingy, up the Canadian radio charts — but he’s certainly not about to complain. “Days off are days on for me, but it’s the fans and the excitement and the love of what I do that gets me through it.”

Besides, he notes, there will be plenty of time to focus on the solo career once the NKOTBSB tour wraps up in August.

Although, that said, Knight admits that just because this round of dates with the Kids may be coming to a close, it doesn’t mean that the band itself will call it quits — not if he has anything to do with it.

“Well, I’m definitely a New Kid on the Block for life, I know that,” he laughs.

“I know that much.

“So we might as well just keep it rolling forever. As long as the fans want it, we’ll be there.”
The NKOTBSB Tour hits the Saddledome on Wednesday.

Donnie talks about season 2 of Blue Bloods

Donnie talks about the second season of Blue Bloods in an article from Entertainment Weekly:

The season premiere kicks off with a bang. Upon returning, one member of the family will find themselves with a close connection to a high-profile murder and another member will hand in a letter of resignation! But not to worry, Donnie Wahlberg fans; it’s definitely not Danny. In fact, at the premiere of Zookeeper last night, the actor — and currently touring New Kid on the Block — told us he’s working hard to make sure he can finish out his work with the NKOTBSB tour and make it to work every day on set. “I will be chartering back-and-forth from the tour to the set of Blue Bloods. We still have a ton of dates after I have to go back to work on Blue Bloods. Tom Selleck has loaned me the use of his plane. It’s great to be busy, honestly. It has been really great to be able to film a movie, do the tour, do the show, and everyone has been more than accommodating. The best part is that everyone from Blue Bloods has come to see the NKOTBSB show now live. They were like, ‘Who knew?’ And I was like, ‘How could you not know? All I do is dance around the set in between takes,’” he said. Wahlberg also dished that last year’s secret society/murder plot is gone for good. And he couldn’t be happier about it. “I think this will allow us to focus more on what makes this different from all the other cop shows. We are going to focus on the family aspect … I think there is enough there with the family, the police work, and New York City itself to keep the fans interested and keep the show going. I think that is what the audience is drawn to. I think it will be more individualized episodes and cases this year as opposed to one giant arc like last season. It is hard to do serialized stuff on broadcast networks. There are too many pre-emptions for holidays and sporting events and awards shows. On cable, you can go 10 weeks and it is one every Thursday for 10 weeks. We are on 22 out of 40, and I think that makes serialization more difficult in my opinion. I think you start to lose people.”
