Facetime with Donnie Wahlberg

See this here:


That is my big ol’ Snoopy Happy Dance! 

‘Cause guess what? 


This time I got to shake Donnie Wahlberg’s hand!  That’s right – I met the D-man!  Good ol’ Tony Spinelli in the flesh!


We arrived in London early for the New Kids On The Block (NKOTB) concert ’cause we wanted to catch a bite before the show.  As we were heading down the street we spot a ton of girls hanging over barricades and screaming!  “They’re here!  Get outta the car!” Tracy shouted.  Tracy stopped the traffic and I ran across the road to the barricades.  Not one for crowds I take up a spot at the end, right on the barricade. Just as I get myself in postion DW comes off his tour bus and comes straight to me – “Hey Donnie, how’s it going?  It’s momontherun*” I shouted over the screaming girls while I shook his hand.


Then he proceeded to greet all of the other screaming fans too – my moment was brief, but alas:


Here’s a few pics I took of him outside of the John Labatt Centre:



(Nice butt!)

The night was  a blur of excitement after that – I felt like I was totally 14 again!  We hung out after the show and caught a glimpse of Jordan and Danny leaving the JLC, but then we left ’cause we were freaking cold! 

With two concerts down and 2 new Kids met, I think it’ll take me 3 more concerts to meet the rest of them.  I’m totally ok with this, ’cause guess what?  They just announced their FULL SERVICE Tour and I’ll be there at the Molson Ampitheatre in Toronto on June 21st!

*momontherun is my handle on the NKOTB community site too.

  1. You lucky ducky! Donnie is the ONLY thing I like about NKOTB. Don’t let Rustann hear that “her” Donnie touched you – she might get jealous 😉

  2. Oh wow. I don’t get this, but I’m glad you were so happy to do it, what ever floats your boat and all that. You only live once, so have fun with it!
