Yes, we have a hard time believing the New Kids on the Block who, were they real kids on real blocks would be neither new nor kids nor living on any blocks of ours are still getting mobbed outside of their hotels these days. But apparently the boys are still being greeted with screaming fans wherever they go and to be fair, they warned us about all of this many years ago in their song "Hangin' Tough": "and if you try to keep us down were gonna come right back." Yes, they came right back.
These are tough times we are living in today. Wall Street is in the shitter. Big corporations are asking for billion-dollar bailouts. Layoffs are increasing. The 2009 Arena Football league has been suspended. The Queen is even cutting back on her expenditures.
And we are currently living in a world where New Kids On The Block has been successfully resuscitated enough to play a gig on New Year's Eve in Las Vegas at JET inside The Mirage. Actually, it's just Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood but that's like almost worse. All you need is just two members of NKOTB to host a New Year's Eve party? Damn. Times are hard.
Granted, we were fans of NKOTB back in the day. We also confess that Joey was the first boy who ever kissed us in our dreams. But this is 1990 we are talking about. Nothing from that year can be that good so as to showcase it again on New Year's Eve nearly 20 years later. Still, if you must, tickets are $150 a person. Table reservations start at $200 per person with a minimum of six people per table. Doors open at 10pm.
