Don't judge me...

25 years later, they still have my inner tween screaming... although now it may be my ovaries that are screaming, not my inner tween.

Yay!

That brings back teenage memories. I saw them in concert when I was 14 at the local fair.

I had a white plastic watch with a flip up top that had their picture on it. I loved that watch. Also, had the huge button I wore on my jean jacket. Those were the days.

DD33 was a huge fan. They do bring back sweet memories for me, but more so because of my DD33's fanaticism and her little friends, too. What good innocent times. DD33 had much NKOTB's memorabilia, such as a sleeping bag and some kind of cards, I think. I just came across not to long ago a New Kid's pin, too, whilst cleaning out some of our hoarded stuff.

Anyway, DD33 and some friends went to a concert of theirs a couple of years ago, too. Hhhmmm, I am thinking I have some cassette tapes still, or I gave them to GoodWill recently. I'll have to look.

They were my first concert when I was 8 years old... been to about a dozen or so since they "reunited" in 2008, plus 3 of their cruises to the Bahamas. Totally been a blast, and takes me back to a simpler time. I've met/chatted with them on many occasions in the past few years, and they are really nice, down to earth guys. Very classy and very good to their fans.

Too late...I judged you. I determined you have good taste.

I just gave my niece a bunch of One Direction stuff for her birthday and it reminded me of all the NKOTB stuff I got my younger sister. Sis looked like all of south Boston had puked on her walls!

OMG. Another fan here.

I LOVED LOVED LOVED them. My mother would never take me to one of their shows, and I wasn't allowed to go with my friends with no parental supervision.

I'm a GROWN UP NOW, so I might have to see if they're coming anywhere near here!!!!!! Wait...are they touring again? It would make my summer.

Belle and Xena saw them last week. I got to babysit my grandchildren while my adult kids relived their childhood.

What a pic! You either had some damn good seats, or a camera with an amazing zoom!

Marriages that start this way, stepping over the bodies of loved ones as the giddy couple walks down the aisle, are not likely to last.
