I went to the NKOTBSB concert on Juy 1, 2011 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA. The concert was amazing. I had great seats. I had floor seats in section 6 row 5. I’m short so I couldn’t see too much when they were performing all the way to the stage but when they were in the catwalk-like area I saw them a little. When they were in the circle area right in front of my section I could see them all clearly. The opening acts were Ashlynne Huff and Jordin Sparks. Backstreet Boys each brought someone on stage during a song and serenaded them. They all brought a girl up except AJ McLean who decided to bring a guy up on stage. New Kids on the Block came to the floor area to shake hands with some of the fans. I went up to Jonathan Knight and grabbed two of his fingers because I didn’t know if he was gonna come down by me. When I got back to my seats he came towards my side and I reached out my hand and he shook it. It was so great since I’m a huge New Kids on the Block fan. Backstreet Boys were in the level right above the floor seats shaking fans’ hands. AS AJ McLean was walking back towards the circle that’s in front of my section I tried to shake his hand but he didn’t reach his hand out and the security were all around him rushing him to the stage so I couldn’t touch him. Donnie Wahlberg ripped off his t-shirt and threw it to my section but a girl on the other side of my row got it. What a lucky girl! I wish that was me. I would have loved to have gotten that shirt. The concert had lots of special effects and lighting. It was just amazing. Before the concert I bought a New Kids on the Block t-shirt and the NKOTBSB program book. I absolutely loved my seats and this concert was the best one I’ve been to. I wouldn’t change a thing except to maybe get Donnie’s t-shirt. I would highly recommend all to go if you are a fan of either or both. I just wished I had brought a camera and took some pictures but I didn’t know they allowed cameras. I’ve been to 4 other concerts before (including a New Kids on the Block one) and cameras were not allowed. They wouldn’t even let you take pictures with your cellphone. I don’t have picture-capable phone.

I forgot to mention that Kevin Richardson of the Backstreet Boys made a surprise appearance at the concert. He appeared at the circle area wearing a suit and started singing then all of Backstreet Boys joined him at the circle area and sang with him. It was great. I was reading somewhere online that he did not appear at every concert. He only appeared at some. I was lucky that he appeared at the concert I was at. All the Backstreet Boys fans were screaming and so excited. No one knew he was going to be at the concert.
