It has been a busy couple of years for Jordan Knight. As member of The New Kids On The Block, heâ€™s toured the world on a giant penis, selling out arenas on the NKOTBSB tour, released a solo album, and judged last yearâ€™s Cover Me Canada. Many people would take a break at this point, but Knight had some unfinished business with Canada.
“It is a lot of fun, I love to tour and be on the road. I had a really nice relaxing summer for two and a half months. You kind of get the itch and want that excitement. I didnâ€™t do Canada on my solo tour so I feel like I left them out. Canada is one of New Kids and my solo musicâ€™s supporters so I felt it necessary to come up there. A lot of fans wanted me there, there were a lot of different reasons.”
Knight chatted with GayCalgary Magazine in advance of his Live & Unfinished tour which hits Edmontonâ€™s Citadel Theatre October 16th and Macewan Hall in Calgary October 18th. Knight is excited to bring the intimate solo tour to Canadian fans.
“When you do a solo tour you can really showcase yourself and your talents. During the show I do a whole piano set. It is really cool because the audiences are smaller so you can joke around with them, take some requests, and I can take my time and sing songs I wouldnâ€™t sing on a New Kids tour. I can sing more obscure songs that diehard fans know, which is good for me and for the fans that know every single recording. It is really gratifying. I love to tour by myself but I also love to do the New Kids On The Block, it really balances out my career as a singer. I donâ€™t do New Kids stuff, all solo stuff. Some of it sounds like New Kids because I am one of them.”
