[ Joey McIntyre ] NKOTB’s Joey McIntyre Running Boston Marathon For His Mom (Video)

BOSTON (CBS) – A boy band heartthrob is hoping to take on Heartbreak Hill this year.

Joey McIntyre of the New Kids On The Block will be on the starting block in Hopkinton on Marathon Monday. He’s running for his mom.

“I’m not nervous for Monday because I feel like I’m prepared. I’ve done the work,” said McIntyre.

Though he’s no longer “new” or a “kid”, NKOTB’s McIntyre is determined to conquer Boston.

“It is my first marathon and I figure I’m going to do Boston because I might not ever want to do it again,” he said.

The 40-year-old pop star has a powerful motivator.

“I’m running, number one, for my mom. My mom suffers from Alzheimer’s. I just feel like there’s a lot of energy, a lot of momentum in finding a cure. And the more awareness, and of course the more funds we can raise, the better,” he said.

[ New Kids on the Block ] Germany – Antenne 1 Album der Woche: “10”

“Lady’s, we’re coming for you!” Aus den jungen, kreischenden Mädels von damals sind jung gebliebene, kreischende Frauen geworden. Und aus den fünf coolen Typen von damals sind fünf gestandene Männer geworden. Manchmal ist es doch ganz schön erschreckend, wie die Zeit vergeht…

1988 waren sie es,…

… die den Mädels den Kopf verdrehten. Als Mitbegründer der Boygroup- Ära waren die Jungs von New Kids On The Block die erste große Liebe vieler junger Damen. Und dieses Jahr steht wir alle vor einem großen Wiedersehen: Unsere Jungendliebe ist endlich wieder da!

Gut, hier waren NKOTB, wie sie liebevoll genannt werden, eigentlich schon 2011. 14 Jahre nach der großen Trennung, bei der viele Herzen gebrochen wurden, gingen die Jungs zusammen mit den Backstreet Boys auf große Welttournee und performten ihre alten Hits. Mitglied Donnie Wahlberg begründete das gemeinsame Projekt damals so:

„Ich sehe die Reunion als Widergutmachung, aber nicht für uns, sondern für unsere Fans. Am wichtigsten ist, dass sie zufrieden sind, was sie heute bekommen. Sie sollen wissen, dass sie damals ihr Herz an die richtigen verloren haben und es sich für sie gelohnt hat, auf das Konzert zu warten.“

Das neue Album: „10“

Nachdem sich die „Mutter“ aller Boygroups 2011 bei ihren Fans um Wiedergutmachung gebeten hat, wollen die Jungs aus Boston dieses Jahr wieder an die alten Erfolge anknüpfen. Da wurden Songs geschrieben, aufgenommen und produziert- und jetzt ist es endlich soweit: Das neue Album „10“ ist fertig! Wie kaum eine andere Band schafften New Kids On The Block den Sprung von den 90er Hochzeiten der Boygroup- Musik zu der heutigen Zeit, in der eigentlich eher Dancebeats dominieren. Bestes Beispiel ist da der Titel „Take My Breath Away“, eine Ballade, die in Refrain plötzlich zum Dancetitel wird. Und auch die aktuelle Single „Remix (I Like It) ist durchaus tanzbar. „10“ ist nicht nur für die Fans von damals ein muss im CD- Schrank- Jungs, die Wiedergutmachung ist euch definitiv gelungen!

[ New Kids on the Block ] Win Us Over With Wine At First Live Acoustic Set

“Here’s your tagline, we’re drunk!” New Kids On The Block‘s Joey McIntyre ad-libbed toward the end of the group’s classic “Hangin’ Tough.” Why? Because amazing things happened when NKOTB performed their first ever acoustic set at Live In The Vineyard last weekend.

The fab five worked the crowd with so much energy, though, you’d think they had more than just a keyboard and guitar accompaniment backing them for their seven-song set that mixed old favorites like “Step By Step” and their latest single “Remix (I Like The).” They even showed off some vintage choreography. Still holds up.

Right now the guys are promoting their latest studio album 10 and this summer’s The Package Tour with Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees. With what’s bound to be such the adrenaline-pumping madness fans have come to expect from NKOTB on the horizon, it was refreshing to see them in a stripped down atmosphere.

[ New Kids on the Block ] No longer new or kids, but still having fun

New Kids on the Block may have made headlines last week over Jonathan Knight’s curious exit in the middle of the group’s intimate iHeartRadio performance in New York. But watching the New Kids’ sound check before that very same gig, one word came to mind: fun.

Throughout the group’s rehearsal, the five former teen heartthrobs appeared to have the energy of teenagers despite having come off back-to-back TV appearances that week. The guys were smiling, laughing and goofing off. They truly seemed to be enjoying one another’s company — even after all of these years. Jonathan Knight was actually the first to crack a joke during an interview with before the show, and his brother, Jordan Knight, talked about how NKOTB simply loves performing for fans.

“It’s all about the fun. It’s all about making people smile and making people happy,” Jordan Knight said prior to the show at the iHeartRadio Theater Presented by P.C. Richard and Son, which streamed live at
