1. "Boyz II Men have not done an arena tour,"
2. "98 Degrees is doing their first show together in 12 years, so it's a big deal.
3. We're doing our first tour with just us [without Backstreet Boys] in three years, so we are going to put on our show, and they are going to put on theirs."

Perez Hilton posted an album teaser for NKOTB's upcoming album "10"! Check out the video below:

New NKOTB song debuts tonight!

Ryan Seacrest will be debuting the new song by the New Kids on the Block called "Remix (I Like The)" TONIGHT at 7pm PT/10pm ET on http://RyanSeacrest.com

Watch clips of NKOTB at Irving Plaza from Hollywood Life

Hollywood Life posted some footage from the event with NKOTB, Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees at Irving Plaza on Tuesday night. Jordan talks about performing new songs and dance moves on the tour and Donnie talks about the new album! Here is the clip:

OK Magazine's article about The Package Tour

OK Magazine posted an article with some quotes from the New Kids on the Block. Here is the article:

Not only will NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK, 98 DEGREES and Boyz II Men hit the road together this spring on The Package Tour, but the three supergroups will also show up at NKOTB’s signature WAFFLE HOUSE PARTY — and everyone is invited.

“The Waffle House is where we stop late at night because nobody’s there,” Donnie Wahlberg, 43, says Tuesday during their warmup event held Tuesday at NYC’s Irving Plaza. “I know ya’ll eat a lot of waffles and hash browns.”

He adds, “I promise you the first stop on the tour that has a Waffle House within 50 miles, we’re going. We’re going to hold up the parking lot, and it’s not going to stop until about 5 a.m. How’s that?”

During the warmup event, the twelve members of NKOTB, 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men stand together onstage for the first time.

Turns out, between the three acts, they claim to have 45 hit singles, which will make for a whopping 3 ½ hour show.

Although the tour doesn’t kick off until May 31, they are elated to perform. NKOTB sing If You Go Away as Donnie and Jon Knight joke around onstage, laughing, and JOE MCINTYRE stretches out the high note on Please Don’t Go Girl, saying “I know they love me because they haven’t walked off yet.”

Hm, why bring 98 Degrees on the road this year? After tagging JEFF TIMMONS as a “stud muffin” and Nick Lachey as an “international superstar,” they get real.

“They’re incredible,” Jordan Knight**, 42, says. “Seriously. They’re great guys, they haven’t performed together in ten years, they’re walking a similar path that we did in coming back together after a long time. We love these guys, we respect these guys, they’re great guys, and our fans love these guys, so why not 98 Degrees?”

With that, 98 Degrees head out to perform Invisible Man and The Hardest Thing. The guys express their sincere appreciation, and promise to give 100%. Next up, Boyz II Men roll through Water Runs Dry and I’ll Make Love To You. Wow, both 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men can really sing!

For The Package Tour, which runs through July 13, Donnie promises surprise guests but swears that Backstreet Boys won’t return. The guys, dubbed NKOTBSB, toured together in 2011.

Hm, will see [his brother] MARKY MARK [WAHLBERG]? After all, before he went Hollywood and became a big movie star, we knew him as the one-hit wonder who sang the 1991 hit Good Vibrations with his Funky Bunch.

“Who?” Donnie asks me, before moving on to the next question.

And will NKOTB, 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men perform a song together?

“I don’t know,” says Donnie. “How’s that?”

One thing is certain: There will be new music, not just classic tunes, from all three groups during the concerts.

“We worked so hard on this album,” Jordan says, referring to their new offering, 10, which hits stores April 2. “It’s going to take you on a journey — you’re going to feel joy, you’re going to feel pain, you’re going to feel a lot of stuff you experienced, and I’m sure you’ll be able to relate to it, because we’ve all been through a lot of stuff.”

Plus, as the guys won’t let eventgoers forget, “12 packages.”

Tickets for The Package Tour go on sale Feb. 2, and AMEX presale begins Jan. 25.

We are creating a fun new video project and are in need of photos from each of YOU. Basically we are looking for a "before and after" photo. We want to see your transformation, from the first picture to the second picture. 
Here are some examples (these are just examples so feel free to elaborate):
-A picture of you dressed down and then dressed up (i.e. before you get ready to go out and after you have gotten ready)
-A picture of you before you set an athletic goal and after you have achieved it
-A goofy photo of you from your youth (braces, funny hair style, etc..) and a nice photo that you're proud of (wedding day, prom, etc...)

Wahlburgers reality show begins filming this week

The Boston Globe reports that filming for the Wahlburgers reality show will begin on Tuesday. Here is the article:

In Hingham, Wahlburgers pilot to begin filming during movie party


By Jessica Bartlett, Town Correspondent

Filming for the pilot of a reality TV show about Wahlburgers restaurant in Hingham will begin after a private screening of Mark Wahlberg's new movie next week.

Walhberg will be joined in the endeavor by his brothers Donnie and Paul, who are co-owners of the restaurant. According to Paul, who is the chef at Wahlburgers, the show is still in the beginning stages.

'They are still piecing things together,' Paul said in a phone interview. 'It's a business. It will be fun, and I'll see more of my brothers, Mark and Donnie. It'll be good, and we're looking forward to it.'

The reality show has been rumored for months, but this will be the first filming to take place. According to Paul, the pilot will focus on Wahlburgers and what it takes to run the business.

Restaurant ownership has suited the family well, with Paul operating a successful restaurant, Alma Nove, right next to Wahlburgers at the Hingham Shipyard.

Producing is also a business Mark Wahlberg has found success in through 'Entourage,' 'In Treatment,' and 'Boardwalk Empire.'

Mark is also starting filming on a 'docu-series' set in Boston this month. Tentatively titled 'Breaking Boston', the show will follow six young women from the metro area who embody the real world.

The celebrity is also staying busy with other projects, among them a show called 'Teamsters,' focused on Boston's Teamsters Local 25.

The filming for the reality show will be an interesting accompaniment to a third screening event of a Wahlberg movie at the Hingham Shipyard. 'Broken City', costarring Russell Crowe, will be shown at the Hingham Shipyward Cinema next Tuesday, in advance of its national opening on Jan. 18.

The private screening is a fund-raiser for the Mark Wahlburg Youth Foundation, and according to PR spokespeople, Mark; his mother, Alma; and brother Jimmy Wahlberg will attend the screening.

Previously, the shipyard hosted screenings for two other Wahlberg movies, 'The Fighter' and 'The Other Guys." The after-screening parties for those movies were hosted at Alma Nove. This time around Wahlburgers will cater the event.

'It's going to be the Wahlburgers menu; sliders and a lot of the food that's there,' Paul said. 'It will be simple, but it will definitely be the representation of the menu.'

Also a part of this event is an opportunity for two members of the public to attend the after party and get an opportunity to get a photo with Mark.

A raffle is ongoing through Celebrities For Charity, with all proceeds to go to the youth foundation.

Overall, Paul said, the event will be good for Wahlburgers and for the foundation, which offers funding to youth service and enrichment programs.

'It's good because it's to benefit the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation. We do that. And for the buzz everyone is excited, but it's good for the restaurants and it's good for the business' Paul said.

Update on NKOTB's new album and 2013 tour

The Boston Globe posted an article with some exciting news about NKOTB's new album and 2013 tour!
The highlights are:
Tour announcement: January 22
First single release: By end of the month
New album release: March
The article also mentions "Boston's Finest" and says there are still plans to make reality show about Wahlburgers, and they will probably tape a pilot for that in January. Here is the full article:
Donnie Wahlberg on Friday was talking up “Boston’s Finest,” the reality TV show he’s producing for TNT about the Boston Police Department. Chatting with members of the Television Critics Association in Pasadena, Wahlberg said he knows something about cops, having played one or two over the course of his acting career. “I’ve worked with cops for the last 15 years,” said Wahlberg, who currently plays a New York detective on the CBS series “Blue Bloods. “When I was on ‘Boomtown’ I worked with LA cops. On ‘Blue Bloods,’ I work with the New York cops. I know a lot about what their lives are like.” He said the eight-episode series, which premieres Feb. 27, will pay homage to the sort of people he grew up with in Dorchester, “quality human beings who do heroic things in a very dangerous environment.” The show, on which Wahlberg’s brother Bob serves as co-producer, follows members of the BPD’s gang unit, fugitive task force, and SWAT team, as well as patrol officers. It’s one of several projects Wahlberg is working on. Chatting with the Globe after Friday’s panel, he said he and brothers Mark and Paul are producing a reality show about Wahlburgers, the family’s restaurant in Hingham. “We’re probably going to shoot a pilot in January.” And then there’s the New Kids on the Block, Wahlberg’s not-so-new boy band with Joey McIntyre, Danny Wood, and Jordan and Jonathan Knight. NKOTB will release their latest single by the end of the month — from a new CD that’s likely to drop in March — and a tour will be announced Jan. 22. Asked about a local date, Wahlberg said, “We’re going to try to play in and around Boston more than once.”

Donnie Wahlberg talks about "Boston's Finest"

Donnie talks about the new tv show, "Boston's Finest" in an article from Zap 2 It:

It seems there are a few places that reality television cameras shouldn't be -- but given today's audience, and our voyeuristic hunger for access, it's no surprise that those places are few and far between. Donnie Wahlberg's new TNT reality series "Boston's Finest" allows viewers unprecedented access into the personal and professional lives of real police officers in Boston.

At the Television Critics Association Press Tour on Friday, Wahlberg told reporters that the show hits particularly close to home for him -- literally, some of the cops that the show follows live on his older brother's street. Wahlberg had a few reservations about bringing a reality TV show to Boston, because he didn't want it to seem like he wanted to make the city look bad. He joked that reality producers are swarming his hometown. "'We want a bunch of drunk ladies like 'Jersey Shore' but they all say clam chowda!'" he jokes. "I'm from Boston. I can't do a show that exploits Boston."

Don't expect a show like "Cops," which sensationalizes people in their lowest moments. "I would not be allowed back in the city if I simply tried to make a Boston version of 'Cops,'" he says, noting that while he respects that series, this is a different kind of show. "'Cops' is a long-running, successful show, but I can't make 'Cops' in the city that I live in."

"Boston's Finest" examines the lives of beat officers, detectives, SWAT, fugitive and special task forces, and the highly decorated Gang Unit in the Boston Police Department.

Unlike "Cops," "Boston's Finest" will also follow the officers -- who live in the same neighborhoods that they serve and protect -- home. We'll meet their families and loved ones. Wahlberg describes the officers as "quality human beings who do heroic things in a very heroic environment."

"They grew up in neighborhoods where they could easily be a bad guy or a good guy," he adds. He chose to produce this show -- his first as producer -- in the interest of highlighting good people who made the right choices.

Wahlberg's brother, Mark Wahlberg, is a prolific producer, but he was aware that he had to be a bit more discerning. "Mark has a little more latitude as a producer than I do. I have to be a little more careful with the stuff I do," he says. "The story that I want to tell is about the people that I know."

The series will be paired with scripted drama "Southland," and is set to premiere Wednesday, Feb. 27, at 9 p.m. EST.
