Initialized as NKOTB, New Kids on the Block is an all American boy band originating from Boston, Massachusetts. The band was originally called Nynuk, and consists of 5 members. They are the Knight brothers, Jonathan and Jordan, Joey Mclntyre, Danny Wood, and Donnie Wahlberg. The band was formed in 1984 and received great response from the get-go. The boy from the mid 80’s till the early 90’s enjoyed a lot of success. They sold over 80 million copies in that timeframe alone. This achievement got the NKOTB the title of being the ‘World’s Best-Selling Groups of all Time’. KNOTB even won two American Music Awards for favorite rock/pop band in 1990 and favorite pop/rock album. Although the band seemed to be enjoying every minute of fame and glory, the band disbanded in 1994. They did make several attempts to form back together but none of the attempts were successful unfortunately. Thus, the members of the group parted their ways.
In 2007, they made a comeback after being reunited. They even recorded a new album during a tour in 2008. New Kids on the Block have recently been listed as number 16 on the Rolling Stone’s Top 25 Teen Idol Breakout Moments. The band went on tour with the Backstreet Boys in 2011-2012 as NKOTBSB. In 2014, the group achieved yet another marvelous achievement of receiving their very own star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for New Kids on the Block tickets!
