New Kids On The Block – the group that forever defined what the modern boy band would look and sound like – are back together for the very first time in nearly 15 years with their hotly anticipated international concert tour stopping by Borgata’s Event Center for a second show on November 7th.

The band, comprised of Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood, are taking charge of their own destiny with new music that they found and funded themselves. The Kids’ new tour will include all the familiar hits such as “You Got It (The Right Stuff)”, “Cover Girl”, and “Step by Step”.

“I want it to be redemption for the fans,” Donnie Wahlberg explains. “I want them to feel entertained, to feel treated to something special. And I want them to be so satisfied by what they get that they’ll realize they weren’t crazy all those years ago – that they put their heart into the right place back then and that it was worth the wait to come back again.”
