  1. New Kids on the Block is my favourite band of 90s. They had so many hits! The ones I remember are ‘Tonight’, ‘Baby, I Believe In You’ and, of course their hit ‘Step By Step’. These are real masterpieces, not garbage like today! And it is sooo good they have a tour in 2019! So I’m going to visit New Kids on the Block concert in 2019. The concert setlist is here: New Kids on the Block tour Everett. Open the page and maybe we can even visit one of the concerts together!
