New Kids On The Block Tickets The Band Won Two American Music Awards For Rock Band-mmc.exe

UnCategorized New Kids on the Block currently consists of brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, and Danny Wood. New Kids on the Block enjoyed success in the late 1980s and early 1990s and have sold 80 million records worldwide. They won two American Music Awards in 1990 for Favorite Pop/Rock Band, Duo, or Group and Favorite Pop/Rock Album. As the group began to take shape, Mark became disillusioned with its bubble gum direction, and opted to quit. Another one of Donnie’s neighborhood friends, Jamie Kelly, took his place. Kelly, though, would eventually be dismissed for lack of concentration and discipline after his father’s death. Seeking a Michael Jackson-esque singer to sing the high solos, Starr replaced him with 12-year-old Joey McIntyre whom the other guys initially resented for being the one to replace their friend. With the final line-up in place Starr rehearsed the boys diligently, after school and on weekends, and eventually secured the group a recording contract at Columbia Records. The label, however, demanded Starr change the name of the group. Subsequently they settled on New Kids on the Block, after a rap song that Donnie had written and arranged for their first album. In April 2008, after months of speculation, Donnie Wahlberg confirmed to CNN that the group had reunited with plans to record new material and to stage a tour.The following month, the group released their first single since reuniting, "Summertime".The cover of the single featured the name "New Kids on the Block", re-lengthened from the initials NKOTB. On August 12, 2008, they released their second single, "Single", featuring R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo, followed by the release of the group’s first studio album in fourteen years, The Block. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums Chart and #2 on the Billboard 200 in September 2008. It was certified Gold in October 2008, in Canada. The group’s reunion tour, New Kids on the Block: Live, began at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on September 18, 2008. They toured the US with Natasha Bedingfield and Lady Gaga as supporting acts. There are 48 total concerts scheduled for Canada and the United States, ten in the United Kingdom, one in France, one in Amsterdam, .herlands and two in Germany. A NKOTB-sponsored "theme" concert cruise (for their fans) departed from Miami, Florida and traveled to the Bahamas from May 15/18, 2009. The group also announced the Full Service Tour for 2009, featuring Jesse McCartney and Jabbawockeez. Group member Jordan Knight announced a new concert cruise for 2010. After the tour, each member took a break on doing other endeavors. Joey recorded a few songs written and produced by fellow musicians such as himself, Drew Ryan Scott from boy band Varsity Fanclub, Brent Paschke, and Gabe Lopez. Donnie worked on his own music as well, releasing a single called "I Got It" featuring Aubrey O’Day and "Rise and Grind" featuring Roscoe Umali. On Friday, August 13, 2010, tickets went on sale for the third annual NKOTB cruise which will take place aboard the Carnival Destiny, leaving from Miami, FL on Thursday, May 12, 2011 to Nassau and Half Moon Cay, Bahamas and returning to Miami, FL on Monday, May 16, 2011. Once again, the cruise sold out the same day it went on sale, with thousands of fans on a ‘waitlist’ standing by for any openings on the boat due to cancellations. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
