Well Wednesday night was one of the best nights of my life!! When I was a teenager I was madly and completely in love with New Kids on the Block! Me and my friends, Nichole and Anne, used to spend weekends going through magazines ripping out pi cutes of them and hanging them on our walls. We would listen to their music for hours and hours. But they broke up... And I let them go. So fast forward to last year. They release a new album which I LOVE!! It really is a great CD. Nichole checks out their tour schedule and sees that they are coming to Maine... We are beyond excited!!
So Wednesday I get myself all primped up and kissed the girls good bye and headed to the concert. Well first we went to dinner. Let me just say it doesn't take much to get me a little tipsy anymore. It was really great being out with my girlfriend. We were silly and laughed all night. Then it was time to head to the Civic Center to see the concert.
The show started with the group Jabbawokee (sp?). They are a dance group. I guess they won some contest on MTV. Of coarse being out of the "what's cool" group, I had no idea who they were. They were pretty amazing. Around 8:30 the whole place got dark... I had butterflies in my stomach... I felt like I was 13 again... They came out. We screamed our heads off!! They were AWESOME!! They sounded awesome, they danced awesome but most importantly they looked AWESOME!! I have to say though, my favorite part of the whole concert was the last encore they did... They saved Hangin Tough for last. It was AMAZING!! They came out in Celtic jerseys and the place went NUTS!! It's so awesome that they are from MA!! Donnie wore a Red Sox hat for most of the night!! They did a nice mix of new and old stuff. At one point in the show they mentioned how it had been 21 years since they released their first single... That made me feel really old... It was such a great night. I really hope they tour again. If they come back I am soooo there!!
I took a ton of pictures. Here are some of my favs:)
