New Kids On The Block Very Serious About Loving You Forever

People is reporting that Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre, Jordan Knight, Jon Knight, and Danny Wood will announce a big old New Kids On The Block comeback within the next few weeks, despite all five members having aged far out of the “kid” demographic years ago. (The oldest member, Jon Knight, is now 40! And working as a real estate developer! Wonder if the market’s recent trials have contributed to his newfound willingness to return to performing.) The reunion coincides with the 20th anniversary of Hangin’ Tough, which went eight-times platinum and sold 20 million copies worldwide, and the group’s official Web site is now harvesting e-mail addresses and cell phone numbers from fans who are now presumably old enough to pay their own bills. (Perhaps they’re collecting the latter so as to announce one-off mall shows?) [People]
