CONCERT DETAILS ~
The New Kids on the Block shows have featured a varied set list including classics such as, “Hangin Tough,” “Step by Step,” and “Right Stuff,” mixed with the newer tunes like, “Single” and “Summertime” from their brand new album, THE BLOCK. As the New York Post described, “the encore of 1990's ‘Step By Step’ and the 1989 tune ‘Hangin' Tough’ were gasoline on the concert fire.” and the OC Register exclaimed, “they put on a stellar show that kept the crowd on its feet for two hours.” “Not only do the New Kids sound better than they ever did, they also look like they're having even more fun than they did 20 years ago,” lauded Newsday.
Established in 2003, the Jabbawockeez are America’s newest dance sensation. Known for creativity, unique choreography, athleticism and intricate synchronization, this group of talented entertainers are poised to change the way we see dance.
