No dates anytime soon. My husband was texting Jordan's manager just this morning and said they are still 'shopping' a lot of markets. Meaning, they're trying to get arenas and pavilions to bring the tour to. Because of my area he said they are trying to bring the tour to both Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA. Because Atlanta is a major market and Charlotte is considered a secondary market sometimes, there maybe 2 legs to this tour. So major cities first then secondary markets later one. Have to wait and see. Keep you posted!

You know I just realized I said I didn't want it to fall the same day as the U2 concert. I didn't mention anything about Kris's birthday in June. Clearly you can see where my priorities are lol.

I wonder how much these all access packages are gonna cost being that it's both groups. And what is this about a ramp??
Of course! I spent my 10th wedding anniversary this past June with Melody in Chicago at a New Kids concert. (disclaimer:with my dh's complete cooperation and blessing!)

I re-arranged the Radio City concert for his 30th birthday. 31st isn't a big deal. I can miss that.

I got up this morning, checked my Twitter and find out that the NKOTB website is redesigned..cool. Then I read that there are now fan club memberships and they are required for pre-sales, etc. Seriously?? I'm annoyed to say the least! Some of us are working on little play $$ here and it was bad enough that we can't afford the ILAA packages for awesome seats! Now we need to buy a fan club membership to get a chance at decent seats? And access to the forums (that I rarely read anyway, but it just bugs me) I loved that they weren't nickle and diming us....so I'm just annoyed. LOL

Anyone else joining the fan club? Think I will pass. I always just wait for ticketmaster to release better tix or buy them on stubhub. I know a lot of people who have bought in to various fan clubs for presales and then were dispappointed with their seats. $80 is another concert ticket. No thanks, no Blockhead Nation for me!

$80 is pretty steep.......I bought into the Miley Cyrus fan club last year when we took Braelynn and her bff to her concert and got 3rd row and only paid $20 for the fan club, so for me that was worth it. I'm sure that there are going to be a lot of crazy fans out there that will do it though. As for me I think I will pass.

Was this their big announcement? Lame. I could care less about a fan club. I'll buy good seats via stubhub, thanks.

Oh and I guess those dates that are leaking are correct because Z100 was giving away tickets already this morning. If you won, you had your choice of the IZOD Center on June 4 or Nassau Coliseum on June 5. Just come out with it already guys.

Leaked cities were right, dates were wrong. See nkotbsb.com for correct dates. ILAA info is up without prices. Can't wait to see the rest of the dates and cities!

Yeah, I think it's pretty lame of them to do that. They seem to be getting more and more greedy and that is something that really irks me!

Thanks! I agree, hey seem to be getting greedy. DH and I just had the same conversation. I said they're getting too big for their britches. It's losing some of the fun.

Shelby - planning on going to the U2 concert at the Meadowlands. If my sister is crazy enough, she may purchase tickets to the Philly show as well. I'll let you know.

I said this on my facebook and I'll say it again. I feel that when NKOTB first reunited, they did it for the fans and seemed to genuinely enjoy it. Now I feel as if they're more motivated by the money than anything else. It was a blast back in 2008 and 2009 but these CasiNO shows were short for the money you paid. (Even though I had a blast with Shelby!) It felt half-assed, other than the RCMH show. I'm sure I'll go to a NKOTBSB show to check it out but I'm beginning to lose interest.

I'm going to try to go to a show. The thing that stinks is now that they are touring together they're going to go back to arenas. I really liked the smaller venues. I didn't mind seeing them at Boston Garden the first time because there was so much initial excitement, but now a lot of that has worn off. I don't want to be clear across the arena and watch it on the screen.

Being on the other side of the music industry I see a lot of stuff that goes on. With that being said, when the fan club prices were set up, more than likely, most if not all the guys were either mis-informed or not told at all. They almost never know what goes on, on that side of the spectrum. I recently just saw a band I promote almost sue Artist Arena for not disclosing to them in the 32 page long contract that their membership had increased from $30 to $50 a year. Artist Arena just let go of the whole project and the fan club became immediately defunct and refunds issued so they wouldn't get sued. AND, some artists just sign whatever and don't care until it's too late. Each guy has their own manager, it's the managers responsibility to inform and get approval on things like this. Other instances are pay back situations. Say on the last tour, they used xxx money for bus rentals. But it ended up being xxxxx. So on this go around, so they don't pay out of pocket right then, they hike prices in other areas to cover cots that may incur. So basically they're covering their ***. And from a record company aspect, if you aren't moving units, or selling lots of iTunes singles, your label is only going to foot so much of the bill in the beginning, and it's what you make that will pay back the label and then pay for the rest later on. And fyi, the NKOTB album didn't do so hot. Plus, when the second leg of the '08 tour in MAY/JUNE where a lot of shows were cancelled due to *production issues* BS! It was poor ticket sales and the venues forced a cancel.

So, don't immediately say they've gotten greedy or get pissed at them personally. 95% of the whole sha-bang is out of their hands. They're told when to rehearse, when to eat, when to be on stage, when to be on the bus, and in some instances when to take a sh*t. Sad, but true. Hope this helps my fellow blockettes understand. Here's pixie dust to us all in getting great seats to whatever show you can make it to!!!

Exactly. In the end it is a business and the goal of a business is to make money. It isn't like the $$$ from fan club memberships are going into the guys pockets, they are covering costs to operate the business. As for the prices, they are a little high but those prices are based on what the management team knows the fans will pay for it. Supply and demand. And I doubt anyone... management, band, fans... thought this reunion would still be going strong nearly 3 years later. Especially since, like 1rockinmama said, it wasn't hugely successful. The guys are still in it for the fans. The management team has to do what they have to do to make it happen.

As for me, I am just excited that I might be able to see a show again. After seeing 5 in 08/09, I haven't been to one since April 09. Dates and locations have not worked. Hoping this time it does!
