The New Kids are definitely not alright



The New Kids on the Block are so happy with the results of their recent reunion tour -- okay, brace yourself -- that they're DOING IT AGAIN! Cue the sound of atomic explosions, old women weeping, small woodland animals dying and thousands of 30-something-year-old women screeching at the sight of these music pretenders taking the stage again. (Because they all sound approximately the same.)

"We have put everything we have into the making of this summer tour," Donnie Wahlberg says in's announcement. "We have strategized and we are on a mission to THANK OUR FANS IN A BIG WAY! This tour is going to be a party like no other! Wet, hot, wild, fun! We owe it to our fans."

Pollstar says it turns out that while ticket sales were better than expected, the real moneymaker from a New Kids show was bar profits! Yes, drunken female fans! It's just like a Bon Jovi concert, only the music is far worse.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, and the tour includes a Tampa stop May 30 at the Ford Amphitheatre. Click here for full dates. And click here if you want to relive our New Kids podcast, which is mostly funny and features a short interview with one of the boys, whose name totally escapes me (and for that, I'm very proud).
