Rewind twenty years ago and you’d see my bright pink New Kids On The Block comforter fixed neatly on my twin water bed, a pile of YM magazines, and cassette tapes displayed by a tiny Walkman blaring “The Right Stuff”.  As a baby of the 80’s and a pre-teen of the 90’s, I would swoon over Joey McIntyre (oh those blue eyes and wavy hair), awkwardly slow dance with my first real crush to Backstreet Boys’ “I’ll Never Break Your Heart”, and watch *NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” video daily on TRL.

On Monday night, my childhood self was in heaven at the New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys concert (NKOTBSB).  This reunion tour left thousands of twenty and thirty-something ladies singing, dancing, and screaming to their favorite boy band ballads and pop hits.  These boys are finally men (mostly married fathers), who can still sexily croon and nail choreography to give Justin Bieber a run for his money.  With wine in hand, tickets from Gilt City, and some of my favorite Manhattan girlfriends, this concert was one of my all-time favorite music filled evenings.  We even bought tshirts, because this concert series was obviously a once in a lifetime experience.

What reunion tour from your childhood would you like to see? xo
