Eighties boyband New Kids On The Block performed their first concert in 14 years to legions of screaming fans who camped outside for two days awaiting their comeback on Friday's (16May08) U.S. TV show TODAY.
The five-piece performed a medley of their 1990s hits on the show - announced during a reunion appearance on the morning TV programme last month (04Apr08).
They mused of their hiatus, "It's eerie. It's almost like the last 15 years didn't happen because it's so effortless. It's very humbling.
"We could get very weepy right now and sappy... The friendship is still there and it really made it worth all of us suspending what we were doing with the rest of our lives to come together and do this one more time."
But the bandmates - who are all now in their mid-to-late thirties - admit coming together since their teen stardom proved to be a challenge: "It's like riding a mountain bike. The recording was easier. Then we started dance rehearsals - that took a few days for all of us to get acclimated. We're being tested though, today is a test of our determination."
The NKOTB reunion comes 20 years after the release of the group's album Hangin' Tough, which became one of the biggest hits of the late 1980s and early 1990s, helping them to amass 70 million album sales during their career.
The pop group will begin their reunion tour in September (08) when it kicks off in Toronto, Canada. A new album is set for release this autumn (08).
