What a day! We’ve been preparing for this since Alexa gave us a hint; the plan was to turn social media into a Block Party, exchange love and gifts, but so much more happened!
In case you missed it, here’s our journal.
That One First Hint
The guys started the celebrations with a notepad for us to fill our story, saying, “How long have you been a #Blockhead! Show us how long you’ve been rocking your #BHLove. We’ve been winning these GAMES since 1984!”
Little we knew, “Games” in caps was a hint for an upcoming surprise…
At 11PM ET, NKOTB gave us the first surprise: gifts with NKOTB merchandise every two hours.
An hour later, Donnie Wahlberg let us know #NKOTBday was trending on Twitter.
Games! Live From Fenway Park
At 2PM ET, NKOTB unveiled the hint the posted on their first tweet of the day: they had publish their performance of “Games” at Fenway Park, on their YouTube Channel.

New Kids, Live!
Joey McIntyre From the Paper Mill Playhouse
Since Joey needed to work on NKOTB’s tour between shows, he hesitated about greeting the fans between shows; but then, he made up his mind.
