The boy-band Black Album: Hear teen pop group members' best solo work

Boy band members go through multiple rites of passage: Finding bras at their feet onstage, rejecting overeager fans, and, for the more confident ones, trying out a solo career.

Justin Timberlake stands out as the most successful boy band member-turned-solo artist, but there are many more where he comes from—his ‘NSync bandmate JC Chasez released Schizophrenic in 2004, and Jesse McCartney went on to have a mildly successful solo career following his Dream Street days. Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter and New Kids on the Block’s Jordan Knight are still trying and teamed up for an album that drops Tuesday. READ FULL STORY

Nick Carter and Jordan Knight combine for 'Nick & Knight'

An album from just one aging boy bander would feel, well, incomplete. But two? That would be larger than life.

That’s right: Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and New Kid on the Block Jordan Knight have partnered for a new album, Nick & Knight. (Name grade: A+.) Fans who couldn’t possibly forget the NKOTBSB tour know the two have worked together before, but this will mark the first time the two have broken off on their own together.

Check out a clip of the duo’s new song “Just The Two of Us” — as well as all the upcoming tour information — below: READ FULL STORY

On the scene: NKOTB, 98 Degrees, and Boyz II Men show Brooklyn their package (tour)

Yesterday may have been Father’s Day, but EW’s social media all-star Nika Vagner and I were the ones who received the greatest gift of all — a triple bill of boy-band hotness, courtesy of New Kids on the Block’s cheekily named The Package Tour, featuring 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men.

We posted to EW’s Instagram and Vine accounts last night from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Now I’m here to deliver the in-depth report: READ FULL STORY

Boston Marathon benefit show lineup includes Aerosmith, New Kids on the Block

Aerosmith, James Taylor and Jimmy Buffett are among the scheduled performers for a Boston Marathon benefit concert on May 30.

The show, at the TD Garden, will benefit One Fund — the collection of donations that will be distributed to the survivors of the April 15 bombings and the families of those killed in the attack.

Other confirmed acts include Jason Aldean, Boston, Extreme, Godsmack, The J. Geils Band, Carole King and New Kids on the Block. Donnie Wahlberg of New Kids on the Block said that like other native Bostonians, he and his bandmates are honored to do their part.

Comedians Dane Cook and Steven Wright also are included in the lineup.
Tickets range from $35 to $285. They go on sale Monday.

Jonathan Knight exits New Kids on the Block performance in the middle of the show

New Kids on the Block have a lot going on in 2013: They just dropped a brand new album called 10, booked a big-ticket cruise, and are headed out on tour with Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees.

But their long road already hit its first speedbump. Last night, during a performance at New York City’s iHeartRadio Theater, Jonathan Knight left the stage suddenly without explanation.

Later on Twitter, he apologized to fans who were there to see the classic boy band perform.

The remainder of the group rolled with it, making jokes about Knight needing to use the bathroom and lending words of support to their comrade. “We love Jonathan and he loves us,” Joey McIntyre told the crowd.

Knight has notably struggled with anxiety throughout his life—he famously went on Oprah to talk about his experiences with anxiety disorder.

It’s unclear how his latest incident will affect NKOTB’s schedule moving forward. They will play the Sutter Home Winery in Saint Helena, CA this Sunday, April 7; the next opportunity you’ll have to see them is when their cruise sets sail from Miami on May 18.

New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees, and Boyz II Men touring together this summer: 'Ladies, we're coming for you'


NKOTBSB was only the beginning.

New Men Kids on the Block Jordan, Jonathan, Joey, Donnie, and Danny revealed on The View today that they’ll release a new album, 10, this April. The boys also announced that they’re planning a national tour this summer with a few very special guests — newly reunited boy band 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men, the R&B group single-handedly responsible for 87 percent of babies born in 1995. They’re calling the event “The Package Tour,” because “NKOTB98DB2M” would look weird on a t-shirt. Here’s an actual quote from the press release:

“Ladies, we’re coming for you,” said NKOTB member Donnie Wahlberg. “This is going to be the craziest year yet — the single, the album, the tour with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men … We can’t wait to give fans ‘The Package!’”


NKOTBSB at IZOD center: Crotch grabbing, happy fans, and...Naughty by Nature?

“It took us 14 years but we did it,” a girl said to her friend, as waves of women filed out of the IZOD center in East Rutherford, NJ, last night after nearly three hours of musical time travel (two stops: 1989 and 1999) courtesy of NKOTBSB, a.k.a. New Kids on the Block + Backstreet Boys.

It hadn’t been long since I last indulged my inner teen; I attended my fourth Backstreet Boys concert at Hammerstein Ballroom last year. But last night’s supergroup affair was, frankly, super. And though the crowd was comprised of more New Kids fans than Backstreet, it didn’t damper the show.

I had heard of some tour stops turning sour because of fan wars, but there was no such pettiness last night—thanks mostly, I believe, to the concert’s structure. After a intro with both groups, New Kids came on stage with “Summertime,” and Backstreet followed with “The Call.” Then New Kids returned with “Dirty Dancing” and so on. The tag-team performances were jarring at first, but if in doing so their intention was to bridge the gap, then mission accomplished. This Backstreet fan left the show a little bit more of a New Kids fan than I was when I walked in. READ FULL STORY

NKOTBSB album track listing released: Which songs made the cut?

The track listing for the upcoming collabo-album from NKOTBSB was released today, but something about this fan-picked lineup has me wondering whether this album, out May 24, has the right stuff.  [Pause for pun applause…and flying tomatoes.]

In all seriousness, fans had no shortage of hits to choose from when they voted for the tracklisting. (They did so last month in a ten-day online voting spree.) But did they pick the right ones? Here’s a look at the full line-up: READ FULL STORY
