Last night was soooo much fun at the New Kids On The Block concert! I remember going to see them at the Marriot Center in Provo. It was September 1990. Our tickets were $25. I was 15 years old. I was a Huge FAN!!! I still have posters, magazines, Videos, and a letter from being in the official fan club. They are somewhere in a box downstairs. Too bad I couldn't wear my old shirts. (I gave them to my neices years ago, and they wore them as jammies till they were covered with holes) :-)
Last night I was able to feel 15 again and screamed my heart out. This morning my voice was hoarse. I danced like a mad woman and screamed things (with Ted's permission) to Donnie and Joe a married woman should not be screaming. HEHEHE.
I went with my sister, 2 neices: Mandy and Kerra, Mindy, and Kim. The same people that were with me 18 years ago. Oh wait Kim was there too but with another group. We were on the floor and this large lady kept pushing my chair forward so she could have room to stand. She was about 300 lbs. So I would go out into the aisle and the security guard would come over and push my shoulder until I stepped back into the row. I felt bad for the security guard having to keep coming over but I kept being squished out!
At one point in the show we went over to the center floor where the guys performed on a revolving floor. We were super squished over there. My friend Mindy had a lady behind her that was jumping up and down the whole time hitting my friend on the head with her boobs. We were laughing so hard at that! There is no such thing as personal space at these kinds of concerts. Everything goes. Except my awesome posters I made the night before. They were taken away by security guards as soon as we walked in the building!!!
Anyway lets get to the pictures...

Opening act: Lady GA GA.

Also Natasha Bedingfield. Love her. She did great!

Hate how you never now how good concert pictures will turn out.

Some were really good others are not. oh well.

I still love Joe!!!

But Donnie was REALLY hot!

This was my favorite part. We were so close to the revolving stage! I could see the sweat dripping from their face. So dang AWESOME!!!!

The next two pictures Donnie is wearing a t-shirt someone threw up at them.

It reads, I love mormon girls!!!
After the song he told everyone how much this is true. Doubtful. But still funny.

He wanted to know how many wives he could have here.

LOOK! Joe is looking right at ME!!! hahaha

Second favorite part...

Whoa! Jordan still lookin good at 38.

I took a couple pics of this but they didn't turn out so this is from the internet

My neices having fun
Mindy using toilet paper in the most ingenious way. Ear plugs.
Not so genious... Just kidding Kim. luv ya
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Hangin' Tough
My posters I made but never got to hold up. :-( Face time is a meet and greet.

hahaha! I love your post about this, it looks like so much fun! I wish I could have been there. They are coming here, but I don't have anyone to go with me, doubt Wade would go for it. Sorry Ted is gong again, Wade talked to him last night. I don't know how you do it, I would hate it. Sure you don't want to drive up here for Thanksgiving?

Debbi said...

OH I don't know if they will be here at thanksgiving. I am just sad all the fun family things you keep posting. haha! I just wish we were there, someday!
