- New Kids to celebrate New Year’s in Vegas (12-1-2008)
Beyond the Sun
They may not be kids anymore, but the grown-up and reunited sensation that is still known as the New Kids on the Block are heading back to Vegas.
The group, which shot to fame in 1988 with its hit, “Hangin’ Tough,” announced plans for a summer show in Vegas earlier today.
While the former boy band super group is all grown up (members currently range in age from 36 to 40-years-old), Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood, Joey McIntyre, Jordan Knight, and Jonathan Knight are still known as the New Kids to legions of similarly grown-up fans.
The group reunited last year after a decade-long hiatus. No strangers to Vegas, the reunion tour first passed through Vegas in November.
A month after their sold-out show at the Mandalay Bay, Wahlberg and Wood returned to town to host a New Year’s Eve party at Jet.
The latest NKOTB appearance has been scheduled for July 11 at the Pearl Concert Theater at the Palms.
Passes for the 8 p.m. performance are priced at $110 and $135 (plus service fees) and will go on sale this Saturday at 2 p.m. Tickets will be available through Ticketmaster, LiveNation and the Palms box office.
