This year marks the 15-year anniversary of the New Kids reuniting with a curtain drop reveal on the Today Show on April 4, 2008 followed by ear-splitting cheers from the unsuspecting crowd. They would go on to release The Block, their first album in fourteen years since Face the Music.
The original The Block album was released on September 2, 2008, along with a deluxe edition that included four bonus tracks. It debuted at number one on the U.S. Top Pop Albums chart and at number two on the Billboard 200. Several artists collaborated on the album, such as Ne-Yo, Lady Gaga, The Pussycat Dolls, Akon, Teddy Riley and New Edition.
In the 15 years that have followed, New Kids have embarked on numerous sold-out world tours, selling over 4 million tickets worldwide. Touring and performing with numerous artists including Salt-N-Pepa, Boyz II Men, Paula Abdul, En Vogue, and many others, New Kids have continued to be a force with their finger on the pulse of the music scene. They have headlined the iconic Fenway Park three times and continue to represent their hometown of Boston with pride. They have traveled with their fans on NKOTB cruises, as well as held the first-ever NKOTB fan convention, BLOCKCON, which took place earlier this year.
“The Block Revisited is a celebration of the magical bond that we’ve built over the last 15 years,” Donnie said of the new release, highlighting the unbreakable connection between New Kids and their diehard fans.
