THE KIDS STAY IN THE PICTURE

As this photo from their recent sold-out Fenway Park show illustrates, New Kids on the Block continue to be a Blockbuster live attraction. The veteran lads' recent Total Package Tour—with NKOTB headlining and special guests Paula Abdul and Boyz II Men—played to a staggering 500k fans over the course of 48 shows. Highlights of the TPT included a sold-out stop at the Hollywood Bowl, a three-night NYC engagement, two dates in Chicago and the aforementioned Fenway sellout (their second since 2008). Live Nation's Brad Wavra promoted the tour; manager Jared Paul would have commented but he was busy meeting with Rob Goldstone about exciting tour opportunities in Vladivostok.
