Didn’t get a chance to see the New Kids on the Block on tour? Now you can have Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood and Jordan and Jonathan Knight in your living room when the group releases its concert DVD on Feb. 2.
From early rehearsals to inside the recording studio, NKOTB’s Coming Home DVD is “bringing you back to the very first moment of the reunion step by step until today,” Donnie Wahlberg tells PEOPLE. “It’s kind of like a yearbook – only from a 15 year high school reunion.”
The DVD includes the singers’ performance of classics like “Step by Step” – and unseen footage from the groups fan cruise to the Bahamas, where Wahlberg and Wood surprised fans in their cabins. Wahlberg has a soft spot for replaying the fan footage, saying, “the emotion from the fans, in every arena throughout the tour, was so intense,” he says. “It gives me chills every time I watch it.”
Get ready for more chills, Donnie. The reunion party will continue in 2010 when the boys hit the high seas again on a sold-cruise in May. And there will be ten golden keys hidden in the deluxe and super deluxe DVD box sets that will grant lucky fans two tickets to any future NKOTB concert.
Says Wahlberg: “We hope to find new ways to give our fans no less as we move forward.”
