Let’s Go To Prison with the New Kids On The Block

Remember that time the New Kids On The Block smuggled cigarettes into a prison? They do. And so, we assume, do those lucky gentlemen who requested – and received – a visit from the now classic boy band during the peak of their popularity in the late ’80s/early ’90s. There’s no telling what stories and favors were shared over the gifts received from Danny, Donny, Jordan, Jonathan and Joey. If only the bars could talk.

When the New Kids sat down with Kim Berk at Fresh 102.7/NYC, they told their story about the strangest place they’ve ever been asked to perform.

“Prison,” said Donny Wahlberg confidently. “Mens,” he clarified.

“We turned it out too.. we rocked it out,” said Joey McIntyre. “Back in the day when we first got together… you kind of take whatever you can get. But we honestly always had a good spirit about it, and the prisons were… there were two!”

“Three shows in two prisons,” Donny joined in.

“We smuggled cigarettes in on one of them and threw them out into the crowd,” continued Joey. “That’s how we won that crowd over. Nowadays we would have never been able to do that.”
