In true NKOTB fashion, the guys just dropped some HUGE surpise news on us that got us really excited for summertime (as if we weren’t already!) Danny, Donnie, Jordan, Jonathan, and Joey announced that they’ll be headlining a very special show at the brand new Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk this August just before Mixtape Festival. While they had insisted Mixtape would be their only show of the year, they couldn’t resist throwing a “warmup” gig in NYC a couple of days before. Of course we’re going to both shows!
Like any true Blockhead knows, Coney Island is a special place for NKOTB – it’s where they filmed their first music video for “Please Don’t Go Girl.” It’s also the home of Wahlburgers, with its rooftop overlooking the Wonder Wheel and the rest of the iconic beach park.
Be sure to get your tickets because this will sell out fast and maybe you’ll get to ride a roller coaster with your favorite New Kid just like in all of your fangirl dreams! Pre-sales for Block Nation members start on Tuesday, June 7th at 10am. General tickets are on sale Friday, June 10th! Beach + Boy Band + Burgers + Roller Coasters .. what more could you ask for in a Summer concert? And as you know, NKOTB always BRING. IT.

We will only watch reality shows that star current or former boy band members, and this series certainly fits the bill. The show follows the adventures of the Wahlberg family business, Wahlburgers, run by brothers Donnie, Mark and Paul. And we can’t forget the original entourage – the real Johnny Drama and Nacho.
Watch the trailer for season 2 below!
Donnie is one of our favorite boy banders, and we love his wisecracks. And did you ever hear of the time he saved Marky Mark from two guys that jumped him in a bar? Surely you’ve heard the Michael Jackson jacket story. We can’t wait to see more of the Wahlberg family adventures, and hopefully some more cameos from the rest of the New Kids!
Tune into A&E at 10:00PM to watch the premiere!

We generally stay away from reality shows, but if they involve a current or former boyband member, you can bet we will be tuning in (shoutout to “House of Carters!”). So naturally we were thrilled to see that one of our favorite members of New Kids on the Block, Donnie Wahlberg, is part of a new show on A&E this January. The show is called “The Wahlburgers,” and it revolves around the Walberg clan’s hamburger restaurant they opened in (where else) Boston, MA.
The show stars Donnie, brother Mark (how nice of Marky Mark to take time from his busy pants dropping schedule to film this show!), and brother Paul, the restaurant’s executive chef. According to the press release, the show will focus on the struggles of running a restaurant with the family name. We hope co-owner Donnie will be making lots of appearances, as he’s become one of our all time favorite boybanders (if you’ve ever been to a NKOTB show, you will know why). We’re hoping Aaron Carter, who was apparently jumped in Boston earlier this year for “being on NKOTB turf,” will stop by for a bite to eat.
The show premieres on A&E January 22nd at 10:30pm. Check out the promo below!
