NKOTB is back
The New Kids on the Block are getting back together. The mega-selling boy band will make their comeback official with an announcement Friday on the "Today" show. According to the Boston Globe, all five original New Kids - Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood, and Jordan and Jonathan Knight - have committed to the reunion, which comes on the 20th anniversary of the Boston band's biggest-selling LP, "Hangin' Tough." A tour is planned, the details of which will be announced soon on the group's newly redesigned website nkotb.com. Before breaking up in 1994, NKOTB was a worldwide phenomenon, selling more than 50 million albums.
