New Kids On The Block Bring ‘Total Package’ to Brooklyn: Photos
The Kids, along with their fellow friends in nostalgia, made their way to Brooklyn on Tuesday night (June 27) to supply the Barclays Center with grooves, moves...and fire.
Before they could take the stage decked out in their black jackets, tank tops and tight jeans, NKOTB kicked off their Total Package show with tour partners, Boyz II Men: Wanya Morris, Shawn Stockman and Nathan Morris got the party started with their soulful sound that sent everyone jumping.
Next up on stage was pop princess and former American Idol judge, Paula Abdul/. After 25 years off the road, the pop icon showed the crowd why she is still a dancing queen of sorts with dazzling displays alongside her dancers — and she even brought her cartoon bud, MC Skat Kat, for "Opposites Attract." Abdul offered words of wisdom to the predominantly female-filled audience, offering inspirational truths about never giving up on ambitions in life.
Danny, Donnie, Joey, Jon and Jordan then rushed the stage to do more than just flex their biceps: a few pelvic thrusts in, NKOTB danced the night away with smashes including “One More Night,” “My Favorite Girl,” “Dirty Dancing” and “Be My Girl.” The boys pulled all the stops with hydraulic lifts, blazing pyrotechnics and glimmering stage lights. It was sensory overload, as they danced through hit after infectious hit and a few wardrobe changes, before Donnie closed out the evening with his breakdance routine.
