Local fan – ‘Hangin’ Tough’ with NKOTB! :)

Spread the love
They are still a sensation after all these years! New Kids on the Block aren’t exactly new – man, they’ve been around for decades, but they still manage to fill an arena!
Susan Swiatkoswi is a fan. No doubt about it. Her affection goes way back, too.
But, unlike most of us – she’s met the guys. More than once.
I asked Susan to give us the scoop – what the guys are like, “Donnie is the most animated. My friend Michelle Jaros was pregnant in the pic from 2 years ago. He suggested she name the baby Donnie, of course. In the Darien Lake pic, he was holding a Diet Coke and said that he thought he spilled it in my hair.”
It’s nice when celebs are real and sweet. Susan is looking forward to ‘reuniting’ with the guys tonight,  “In any case, it is awesome to meet your childhood idols and it is wonderful that they are doing so well. The meet and greets go by very quickly, but even after all these years, the guys are very gracious in meeting their fans.”
New Kids on the Block enjoyed success in the late 1980s and early 1990s and have sold more than 80 million records worldwide. They’ve managed to pass the test of time, still popular after all this time! If you’re going to the concert – have a blast!
