NKOTB, Boyz II Men, 98º at the TU Center

nkotb boyzIImen 98degrees tourThrough some sort of wrinkle in time, New Kids on the Block, Boyz II Men, and 98º have been transported from the 90s to the present day and will be at the Times Union Center August 1 for a show. Tickets for this time travel event go on sale to the general public February 23 -- they're $29.50 and up.

Unfortunately -- and somewhat mysteriously given what little is known about time travel -- the transport from an earlier decade has aged the members of the three groups. When NKOTB emerged from the wormhole, reportedly it was as 40something men. And Nick Lachey was talking about how he excited he is to be dating Jessica Simpson.

Sadly, Marky Mark didn't make it through the wormhole. Please join the Funky Bunch and Donnie Wahlberg in a moment of silence.

Oh, and their fans? Haven't aged a day.

One of the guys from Boyz II Men didn't make it through, either -- they had four members in the '90s.

i WILL be first in line. i still love Donnie and Joey. I'll even admit to still having my Joey doll in its original box and I watch "Blue Bloods" because Donnie still does "it" for me.

There's a $52 Groupon for this today: http://www.groupon.com/deals/gl-times-union-center?utm_campaign=VisitorReferral&utm_medium=email&utm_source=anonymous

When it gets cold, anything warm and comforting hits the spot, but my favorite local food to turn to is the mac and cheese and avocado fries from Slidin' Dirty- nothing beats that!
