Boston Strong – This show had the potential to be one for the ages with predominately Boston based musical acts all coming together to help aid our own in the wake of one the most heinous acts of terror we have seen on U.S. soil.  Huge bands, legendary solo performers, some stellar Boston based comics and throw in a few Boston sports legends how can it go wrong?  Trust me there were moments of boredom, bewilderment, and bedlam but there also very touching moments and heartfelt speeches and even a poem prior to the first band playing!  So the biggest question of the night was, WHY was this concert not broadcast on any local channels?  It’s so obvious to me that so much more money could have been raised for the victims if a phone number had been scrolled down the bottom of the screen during the roughly five hour concert.  It’s done all the time..on occasion even helping to aid international tragic events let alone one that hits so close to home as the Boston Marathon bombings.  Whatever the reason it’s just a shame some of the more moving tributes and meaningful gestures were not seen by the millions that were not at the event but only by the thousands of us lucky enough to be there  in person, but could have been very easily.  All in all a very moving event with a few surprises and a “smoking gun” so to speak that occurred in my section.  More on that later.

Tomorrow the boy band extravaganza billed at NKOTBSB (a shiny, dancing amalgam of New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys) will descent upon Fenway Park in Boston, MA (home of the Boston Red Sox and also the hometown of the New Kids) tomorrow for one show only! The tour showcases the two bands joining forces to deliver pop hits they made famous in the 80s, 90s, and beyond and with Fenway as the backdrop it should be one special day.

The two bands have been on tour together since the end of May and will continue to tour North America throughout the summer wrapping it up at the end of July. Check out our gallery from their June 2nd show at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT below.

Joey McIntyre

joeymac1When you think of New Kids On The Block, it’s hard to get past the visions of screaming mobs of fans and sugary pop goodness, but what happens when the madness fades? For some child stars, it’s tough to handle, but for others, it’s merely the beginning of a long, bright, career. After shedding his boyband cocoon Joey McIntyre was free to fly, and fly he fact, he’s still soaring high. He’s jumped right from teen heartthrob to releasing solo albums, to Broadway star, to television actor, to reality show favorite. I guess you could say he likes to try new things, it’s hard to imagine what could possibly be next!

He’s gearing up to hit the road promoting his fifth solo album “Talk To Me”.  This album is a compilation of old classics that he enjoyed throughout his life.  He’s recreated them and recorded them in his own unique way.  The songs span from “Come Dance With Me” to “The Way You Look Tonight”.  Joey was kind enough to take some time to talk to TWRY about the past, the future, and all things Joey Mac.

Even with all of that success and talent under his belt, it’s hard not to fall back into a screaming teen when talking to him. Let’s face it, he may have grown up, but we never said we did!!
