The Main Event Tour With NKOTB & TLC Hits Long Island, NY

There ain’t no party like a Block Party!  New Kids On The Block’s Summer Tour, aptly titled, “The Main Event,” stopped at Nassau Coliseum in Long Island over the weekend.  As with any NKOTB event, it was a nonstop party from start to finish!  It was everything we expected from this tour, and more.  NKOTB know how to BRING IT each and every night on stage.  Our review started as a fangirl keysmash but we managed to recover enough to write actual words.

Round 1:  Nelly
Nelly got the party started with hits like “Country Grammar,” “Ride Wit Me” and “Hot in Herre,” making everyone feel like they were back in high school.

Round 2: TLC
T-Boz and Chilli win for best outfits of the night.  Their holographic jumpsuits and their dancers’ “TLC” printed overalls made us feel like we were back in 1999.  The highlight of the set was a singalong to their hit “Waterfalls,” as the crowd held up lights in memory of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes.

Round 3: New Kids On The Block
The New Kids just get better and better with age.  NKOTB know how to put on a SHOW.  They also know how to make every fan in the arena feel like a part of the action.  Their stage setup is one of the coolest we’ve ever seen, with moving risers and multiple runways, so everyone has a chance to be close to the band.  And they know exactly what the fangirls want.  Change cam?  Check. Tuxedos?  Check.  Dance Moves?  Check.

Their set was a mix of old favorites and recent ones, and the year of each song’s release was written on the big screen – from 1984 to 2013.  After singing “Please Don’t Go Girl,” Joey McIntyre said he’d been singing that song for 27 years, and asked the crowd if he could sing for 27 more, generating lots of screams from the audience (YES, PLEASE!)

Jordan Knight came out for a solo segment, his white shirt billowing open thanks to a couple of wind machines.  Joey McIntyre followed, but decided to take things one step further and abandoned his shirt entirely.   Donnie Wahlberg, once known for his tank top ripping and getting extremely um, close to fans in the front row, is happily married now to Jenny McCarthy, who was also in attendance.   Instead of his old antics, Donnie led the crowd in a singalong of “Lean On Me,” while hundreds of #SelfiesForDonnie rotated on the big screen.

P1230797

A highlight of the show was when the band dispersed into the crowd during “Tonight,” getting even closer to some lucky fans.  Joey’s adorable son Griffin kicked off the song,  singing from on top of the piano.  He even did a spinning headstand.  Trust us, this kid is going to be playing arenas with (we hope) his own boyband one day!

NKOTB are kicking off the 1st of 2 nights at Madison Square Garden tonight.  There’s just a few more stops left on The Main Event Tour, but if you can get to a show, it’s a MUST.

The Friday Five: The Main Event Playlist

In case you haven’t noticed, we are insanely excited about The Main Event Tour happening this summer.   NKOTB, TLC, and Nelly performing together on one stage?  It’s guaranteed to be a nonstop party.   Not sure about you, but we’ll be attending at least two shows.  Check out all of the tour dates HERE!  Here are some of the songs we can’t wait to hear this summer!

1. NKOTB – “Block Party”
The ultimate opening song, and NKOTB says it best:  “Leave your troubles all behind only good times here tonight.”  We still know all the choreography from The Package Tour.

2. TLC – “No Scrubs”
One of our favorite songs of the late 90s – we can’t wait for an arena-wide singalong.

3. Nelly – “Hot In Herre”
We’re imagining some sort of onstage collab between NKOTB & Nelly for this song, especially since NKOTB have done some “Dirty Dancing” to this song in the past.

4. NKOTB – “Cover Girl”
If you’ve seen NKOTB on tour before, then you might also know this song as “that song when Donnie rips off his tank top.”

5. TLC – Waterfalls
Throwing it way back to the days when we had to record songs off of the radio to cassette tapes on our boom boxes so we could listen on our Walkmen.  (Kids, if you have no idea what we’re taking about, watch this.  You have no idea how easy you have it now)

Mixtape Festival To Return to Hershey in 2015 with NKOTB, TLC, Sugar Ray & More!

Mixtape Festival, the ultimate fangirl fest, is returning to Hersheypark Stadium this June after a one year hiatus.  We’re not “festival people,” but we will make an exception for Mixtape, which brings together the best in 90s pop for an unforgettable weekend.  We went to the inaugural fest in 2012 and saw NKOTBSB, LL Cool J, and 98 Degrees’ first show post- reunion.  Needless to say, it was AMAZING, and we’re thrilled that Mixtape Festival is back in 2015!  Check out the lineup below – tickets go on sale Saturday, January 31st.

Mixtape Festival is great because all of the artist play full sets, not abbreviated festival sets.  There are usually fun activities to go along with the concert, like boyband vs. boyband dodgeball games and VIP afterparties.  Visit MixtapeFestival.com for more info on tickets and VIP packages!
