a year ago i bought tickets for gooch and i to attend a new kids on the block concert at radio city music hall. it was so much fun that i determined we needed to see it again - thank you cheap stub hub tickets. during this second concert in june of 2010 at radio city the boys from boston did a little impromptu backstreet boys i want it that way to turn the mid 30 aged crowd of women into a frenzy. suddenly and very surprising they raised the curtain behind them to reveal the backstreet boys were in the house. the stars then aligned and the two boy band groups joined together for the remainder of the song. gooch always reminds me that my face changed to one of pure glee and excitement when i saw the boys arrive.
fast forward to a year later and the tickets were purchased to NKOTBSB in new jersey on monday june 13th. zipcar was reserved and packed with late 20s/early 30s friends all ready to rock it out with the super group that was now from boston and orlando. the show was so much fun! i knew as soon as they did a mash up to coldplay's viva la vida that things were going in the right direction.
thank you NKOTBSB for reminding me how much fun it is to turn into my adolescent self who thought that joey mcintyre had the dreamest blue eyes. only thing that would have made it perfect was if gooch had been there with me. at least i knew she got to enjoy it in DC with her sister.
