I Heart NKOTB

OMG.  After 15 yrs, the NKOTB hotties still managed to sell out Madison Square Garden!  Amazing, huh? And what was even better was that the opening acts were Lady Gaga followed by the amazing Natasha Bedingfield, who sounds great live!

I got to go with my co-worker, Winter Boots.  She and I very much enjoyed being amidst the crowd of late 20s, 30-something-year-olds who seemed to have forgotten all inhibition and fallen into the abyss of teeny-bopperness.  However, there were no signs of bra and undies throwing…at least not from the ghettoness of my far-away seats.

The crowd was loud and excited and there was a lot of dancing and singing along.  The only miserable people there were some of the husbands.  I had one right next to me, who had earplugs on during the entire show.  Another one seemed to enjoy bits and pieces of it since he would only cover up his ears every once in a while.  The original plan was to take Diesel with me, but I am SO glad I didn’t do it because he would be miserable, and honestly he would also be very ashamed of me.

By far, the highlight of the show came towards the end, when they finally sang Step by Step.  Watch it here.
