You may recall that I confessed my love for The Backstreet Boys last year when their newest album came out. They were my first concert!! They are my ‘I-know-every-word-to-this-song’ and my ‘drive-Pricer-super-crazy-by-playing-all-their-CD’s-on-repeat’ band. So when I heard talks of a tour with New Kids on the Block I was tweeking out a bit. what? NKOTB AND BSB?!?!?!! One year my camp councilor woke us up every morning by BLASTING a NKOTB song. You will def wake up to ‘Hang Tough’ blasting and wake up happy. When the ‘boys’ ended the American Music Awards with a mashup I sat glued to the TV and watched it over and over again.
Fast forward a few months to their tickets going on sale and Amanda sending out a tweet about getting some American Express presale tickets. Sign me up!! After counting down the months, weeks, days we finally made our way to Fenway to see NKOTBSB!!!!
Every aspect of the show was fantastic!!
Jordin Sparks opened for the bands. It was the second time I had seen her as an opener
Mayor Menio named June 11th 2011 NKOTBSB day (actually it might just be NKOTB day but you can’t understand a word that man really says)
Mark Wahlberg, aka Marky Mark, came out to introduce the bands
The bands ran out on the field from the Red Sox dug out for intros
It poured rain but we were under the upper deck so remained dry
Even though it poured and was so cold the boys kept performing and even had fun in the rain splashing around and using the stage as a slip and slide
Oh and let’s not forget the abs, lots and lots of abs. umm Donnie is 41… Those Wahlbergs have amazing genes and must work out 24/7.
Naughty By Nature came out and performed a song. Holy 90’s night!!
Joey Mac brought out his son at the end. so sweet!
Intro from Mark and first performance from the bands
BSB’s “I want it that way”
Naughty By Nature’s “O.P.P”
Many more photos and videos to come…
