New Kids On the Block – Columbus Concert

Last night I made the trip down to Columbus from Canton to see the New Kids On the Block. Yes, AGAIN! Due to good luck and juju, I ended up with second row seats on the floor in the center section. It was awesome! In Cleveland I had 6th row, but I must admit, 2nd row did kick my 6th row’s little booty! It was yet another fun night with a great mix of old and new songs. The show had been changed up a bit so it wasn’t boring if you’d seen it before. I hear that the summer one will be entirely different (which is said to be their final go-around of the shows). I had a great time last night and I hope you enjoy the pics!

For those that email me asking for my settings (I get a ton of these!!) I will be posting a “Corey Talks” in the next day or so on how to get good concert images even with a crappy point and shoot! These were ALL taken with a Sony Cybershot that’s about 3 years old now. Not the newest technology and it doesn’t even have the “anti-shakey-thingie” either! It’s possible if you have an idea of what you need to get the shot. You will still get some blurry ones… but that’s the nature of shooting a concert with a point and shoot and no flash 🙂 Yes, none of these have flash either.

Me and my friend Jen, whom have been friends since the 4th grade and used to fight over Joe back in the day. She thought he was hers because SHE had the pillowcase AND the t-shirt. I thought I was better because I had the doll AND the topless hat. It was fun to go with someone that 20 years ago was just as much of a fan as you were.

The entrance onto the stage.

Dancing to My Favorite Girl.. oh oh oh oh she’s my favorite girl! Jordan came down in front of us and sung his solo for this and it’s really neat to hear him sing in front of you without the mike. That boy has a set of lungs!

NKOTB The Right Stuff
Oh-oh-oh oh oh-oh-oh-ooooohhhh-oh! I really want to know how Joe dances in pants that tight and if that’s the secret to his high voice 😉

I think this is my favorite shot from the night, I think it is the rim lighting. I’m such a photographer!

Joe McIntyre
Joe McIntyre crooning to some song (yeah I’m totally blanking!). I think it’s Didn’t I (Blow Your Mind).

Joe singing again….

For part of the evening, the New Kids go back to a second stage further back on the floor and do a few songs there. In Cleveland I could barely make them out but the arena in Columbus was much smaller and it was nice to see what was going on back there this time!

I apologize to anyone else that may have these, but I had to post this shot and say these are the ugliest tennis shoes I think I’ve ever seen. However it is nice to see Joe’s obsession with gold has not diminished.

Jordan Knight
Jordan singing Baby I Believe in You with his shirt off, this is totally for Heidi whom was a Jordan girl.

Donnie Wahlberg
Donnie looking awed at the crowed in Columbus. They were pretty loud, not sure if it was moreso than Cleveland though.

Jordan giving Danny a hug after he stood on his head for the Click, Click, Click Pose Off they do every night (they always do a different pose). He was trying to be an I for OHIO.

Step By Step – the first of two encores.

My battery died after that so the ending pics aren’t that great!

    I cannot believe you just used a regular point and shoot for those pics. I’m looking forward to tips on how to do this.

    Also, NKOTB is a cute obsession. 😀ReplyCancel

    Love shirtless shots (esp. shirtless Jordan!). I went to see them in Cleveland this past fall, but we were in the nosebleeds.

    I had to *sneak* my camera (in a hidden area of my body that I won’t disclose ;D) I have a feeling they didn’t know about yours either…ReplyCancel

    Yep – and an old one at that! I wish I had one of those super de duper new ones but my old one is fine and I LOVE Sony!

    The tips are written, I just need to post them 🙂

    Awww thanks!!ReplyCancel

    I had good seats in Cleveland but 2nd row was WAY better lol.

    They permitted point and shoots but didn’t allow SLRs. I just had it in my purse and they didn’t say a word. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • CoreyApril 5, 2009 - 11:45 AM

    They will be up shortly 🙂 I wish you could have gone too!ReplyCancel

  • CoreyApril 5, 2009 - 11:46 AM

    Oh I’m NOTHING compared to what I used to be on the “fanatic” scale. However I am still a fan, just not on the level of putting up posters on my wall and listening to the tape on repeat. LOLReplyCancel

  • CoreyApril 6, 2009 - 12:41 PM

    Thanks Lisa!!!! The tips are up!ReplyCancel

  • CoreyJuly 9, 2009 - 4:53 PM

    You should be able to get a normal small camera in. No SLRs though.ReplyCancel
