Because I know you’re all DYING to buy tickets

…an ad on Washingtonpost.com alerts me that the New Kids on the Block Reunion Tour (otherwise known as the “Real estate market is in the toilet so Jon Knight finally agreed” tour) will be coming to our fair city on October 2.

The show will be at the Verizon Center, which seems like an ambitious choice for a flash-in-the-pan boy band that hasn’t toured in at least 15 years, but perhaps there are other 30-somethings out there who are not as embarrassed at their childhood love of Joey McIntyre as I am. They’ve already sold out in Atlantic City, I hear.

In any case, the presale starts on June 2 at LiveNation. If you’re willing to admit that you plan to see this show, chime in in the comments. We promise not to mock you. Much.

    They should do us all a favor and re-book them to the Nissan. Then there’ll be room for the Wiggles or something, which I would choose if my entire life depended on seeing a nightmare-inducing children’s show or NKOTB.

    I have no shame. I admit it – I’m excited. Perhaps if I’d been allowed to see them in my middle school glory days, I wouldn’t be quite so giddy.
