New Kids on the Block performing at Mixtape Festival in Hershey

The New Kids on the Block still have the right stuff. Baby.

They are performing at the Mixtape Festival at Hersheypark Stadium this weekend. The event features other popular artists like Kelly Clarkson, Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees and LL Cool J.

The New Kids are playing both Friday and Saturday night at the event, which is their only appearance in North America this year.

“Hershey’s a great place…it’s a no brainer,” singer Donnie Wahlberg said of returning to Hershey to perform.

During an interview with abc27 Daybreak anchor Ali Lanyon, the band revealed exclusive news that they are working on a new album, which is set to drop in 2013.

Throngs of women of all ages donned New Kids on the Block t-shirts and screamed at the sight of the five band members backstage.

The New Kids now range in age from 39 to 43.

“Instead of going through a mid-life crisis, you become a pop star,” singer Jordan Knight said. “It feels great.”

The Mixtape Festival will continue Saturday in Hershey. Tickets are still available at the door, which open at 3:30.

Organizers expect 15,000 people will attend the two-day event.

The New Kids on the Block will also challenge the Backstreet Boys to a softball game at Metro Bank Park on City Island on Sunday morning. Doors to that event will open at 9:30 a.m.
