Summer Mixtape Festival:
98 Degrees will be reuniting for the first time in over a decade! “We’re very excited about the opportunity, and we’ve been toying around with the idea for a couple years of: ‘if we got back together, when would be the right scenario, and this music festival right here just kind of seemed like the right time to get back together and do a show and kick the tires and see how it feels,” Drew tells us.

Nick had this to say about his earlier tweet: “I didn’t say we weren’t going to do it, but there was some speculation about a full tour happening this summer and our fans have been kind of eager to see us get back together. I just wanted to make sure that they understood that a full tour wasn’t happening this summer, but obviously very excited to announce that we’re doing this big festival in Hershey in August. So, that will be our one and only appearance.”

98 Degrees will be performing at the Summer Mixtape Festival in Hershey, Pennsylvania on Saturday, August 18th. For additional information on tickets and festival packages please visit

NKOTB in Chile: "We feel like children again"

Three of the members of New Kids on the Block had a press conference where he admitted being very excited about his return to the country.

Just after 15:30 pm today, Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight and Joey McIntyre, members of New Kids on the Block, entered one of the halls of the Ritz Hotel to give a press conference prior to Wednesday's concert at Movistar Arena.

"It was really beautiful and we are pleasantly surprised," launched Donnie Wahlberg, brother of Mark Wahlberg, the actor. "It's been so long since we came the first time, we did not know what to expect. But our fans waited and we are very grateful."

"We are very excited to play tomorrow," he said teammate Jordan Knight, one of the main faces of the group.

And the wait has not been lower. His last and only visit to the country was made in October 1990, when NKOTB was presented at the event organized by Amnesty International "From Chile ... an embrace of hope, "where they shared stage with bands like Sting, Peter Gabriel, Sinead O'Connor, Inti Illimani, among others.

"Personally, I value our first performance in Chile and insurance is one of the highest points of my career," confessed Wahlberg. "We were very honored that Amnesty International has invited us and we were very proud to be part of it (...) It was very different in a country where things were changing and people were much more hopeful. Was wonderful and then return that makes it much better. "

"We were quickly informed of what happened in that time, so we knew what had happened," Wahlberg said, referring to the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet had recently. "We learned about the régimende Pinochet and all the atrocities that took place in the same stadium where we played. It was a wonderful learning experience."

On tomorrow's presentation, the artists forward their presentation is "a celebration of music and experience." "It was so fun back to this part of the world and you see the joy on all sides (...) We feel like children again and fans, but of course, we know that we are not, because we are all close to the 40 years now, "Wahlberg said, laughing.

"Obviously we will play our hits, and songs from our album of 2008 that of insurance known fanáticoas. Is a mixture of nostalgia ... but we are very young, like our fans, so at the end of the day is a party . People need to feel inspired and hope that our music makes you feel like that, "McIntyre admitted.

"We love the fans crazy!" Shouted excited Knight, while teammate Wahlberg said: "I think they are much better now. In addition, they can choose to go to see Jennifer Lopez tonight, or stay home on the Internet and despite all these years, they have elected to share your evening with us. It's great (...) The fans just want to feel joy and women of 35 years also need that joy, like the rest of the people " .

"We want to revive those feelings they had when young and have a good time," said Knight.

Joey McIntyre talks to Terra Peru

Here is a short interview with Joey from Terra Peru (translated into English):

The members of the most important boy band of all time, New Kids on the Block (NKOTB), confessed that they are very interested in visiting the most attractive places in the capital as part of their stay in our country. 
In telephone communication, Joey McIntyre said he looks forward to having time to explore our city. "I'll buy a bicycle to explore Lima, is the first time we go to Peru and we are very enthusiastic. When we were on tour in the United Kingdom bought a small bike and walked through the streets of cities, I hope to do the same in Lima." 
"I've heard wonderful things about Peru and will do the same, walk upon the streets and I'm sure the other kids will be encouraged, I just hope that time will allow. When you're on tour is hard to leave the hotel until the time of the show, but I really like going out and I hope to learn more about Lima," said Joey. 
He also said to be sorry for having taken so long to visit our country. "I ask the fans to apologize for delaying so are over 20 years, but only days left for this meeting, I hope you all join us, I promise it will be worth," he said. 
NKOTB will offer a spectacular concert on June 22 at the Jockey Club. Tickets for the show are still on sale in the Your Input modules Plaza Vea and Vivanda.

New song by Danny Wood called Shine

Danny has written a new song called "Shine" and according to the tweet he sent today, it sounds like he will be debuting the song on the cruise. Here are the lyrics he shared on the Remember Betty message board.


So hard to hear those words today
Fighting back the tears inside
Gonna hold my head up high
And now you’re staring at my face
I’m full of fear inside
Wondering who’s on my side
You got me and you got my love
You made me all I have become
And there is no way you’re done
Shine down on me tonight
You are my endless light
You’re forever shinning bright
Shine down on me today
Share your resting place
And your beautiful embrace
Shine down on me tonight
Shine down on me tonight
All of these years praying for a sign
Now I know you’re still alive
Buried deep inside
No need to wonder if you’re proud
You’re perfect and you’re loud
Like the sky that has no clouds
You and me building memories
You fill the emptiness in me
You’re everything I need
Shine down on me tonight
You are my endless light
You’re forever shinning bright
Shine down on me today
Share your resting place
And your beautiful embrace
Shine down on me tonight
Shine down on me tonight
All my life you only wanted one thing for me
To be happy
Shine down on me tonight
You are my endless light
You’re forever shinning bright
Shine down on me today
Share your resting place
And your beautiful embrace
Shine down on me tonight
Shine down on me tonight
