Saturday, May 16 –
New Kids on the Block (NKOTB), made up of Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood, were ahead of the ‘90s boy band craze when forming in 1984, almost 10 years ahead of NSYNC and Backstreet Boys, selling more than 80 million records through the early 90’s. NKOTB landed at No. 16 on the Rolling Stone’s list of Top 25 Teen Idol Breakout Moments. Early hits include “Step By Step” (1986), “Got It Right” and “I’ll Be Loving You” (1988). In 1994, the band broke apart but would reunite in 2007 and record The Block, which would release in 2008 and include “Summertime,” “Dirty Dancing” and “Stare At You.” In 2011 they went on tour with the Backstreet Boys and in 2014 they received their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. On Saturday, May 16, NKOTB will arrive at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City on their most recent tour, The Main Event, featuring special guests TLC and Nelly.
