The Package - NKOTB

This happened over the weekend:
Posing With New Kids On The Block Giant Heads
Tracie, Aimee, Lee, Giant NKOTB Heads
The Package Tour.
New Kids On The Block. Boyz II Men. 98 Degrees.

I have very little memory of 98 Degrees, outside of their General Hospital appearances. (Does anyone else remember those special episodes?) But New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men were my favorites.

Lee and I went to the NKOTBSB tour two years ago, when Boyz II Men made a surprise appearance (it was amazing - I did not have my camera with me, for which I will always kick myself), so this felt like a bit of a reunion to us. During the concert they talked about how that night inspired this tour.

I did bring my camera this time, and I have two pictures for you.

I have to share this one, because it was such a great moment - Boyz II Men are on the middle stage, with New Kids On The Block on the stage below them.

A 90's dream come true.
Yeah. My weekend pretty much rocked.

What was your favorite band from your childhood/teen years?

  1. Great photos! The concert was simply AMAZING! I touched Joey's hand and caught a rose from Boyz II Men, so I'm pretty much STILL on cloud 9!!

    1. Thanks! I saw a couple of yours on facebook, and they looked amazing (you were much closer than me).

      I'm totally jealous about that rose. When they started handing them out, Lee and I looked at each other and said, "I hope Jessica gets one!"

  5. Can I say, I am so dang jealous, I cant see straight. I wanted to go so badly to their concert - they were here Monday. I couldn't find anyone that wanted to go enough to pay that kind of money for tickets.... I can't believe I didn't see them. I love all 3 of the groups. sigh... I'm going to cry now...

    1. I'm so sorry you missed it!! The tickets were crazy expensive. I was blessed to have a free ticket, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to do it, either.

    1. I loved that Emily, too!! In fact, I loved all those teens.

      Those were the glory years of GH, and the time period when I really watched it regularly. Pulling up those old clips made it all come back to me.

  8. p.s. The GH peeps look like babies, but so does Nick Lachey!! HEE!!

  11. This looks like a blast. I love seeing bands that I was into when I was younger. My big fave from my tween/teeny bop years was Duran Duran. Oh, my heart - were they were in my world. I am actually blogging about them next week so it was great to read this today!

    1. OH Duran Duran. They are classic.

      I love that you are planning to blog about them next week. I can't wait to read it.

  12. How fun! Sounds like a wonderful time!
    Like Ilene, my favourite band growing up was Duran Duran. I never did get to see them perform - that would have been a dream-come-true! :)

    1. SO fun!

      I never went to concerts when I was a kid or teen, so it is great these old bands are getting back together and touring again.

  13. OMG - I didn't recognize their heads. I still picture Joey as a little kid. He's a MAN now! I loved Boyz II Men best. Man, they were good. All of their songs were hit-worthy. 8th grade dances will never be the same.

    1. Right!?! They are all grown up.

      Every single Boyz II Men song was a big deal. Every.Single.One.

      Oh 8th grade dances. The stories. The memories.
