Are you tough enough?

I guess you don't have the right stuff.

But it's okay, just take it step by step and you'll be fine.

Get back to me when one of the Funky Bunch ends up in court for something high-larry-ous.

"concert walkouts"

"I'm Feeling Lucky"

...well, that works. It's the fans walking out, and a slideshow, but that works.

It's going to be difficult to continue to keep a group member who suffers from debilitating anxiety. They should just replace him with an exact lookalike and pretend as if it's the same Jonathan, similar to what The Beatles did after the original Paul died.
 
2013-04-06 01:40:34 PM
Wait, wait, wait...

...they walked?  They didn't hobble or wheel?
 
2013-04-06 01:54:13 PM
HollywoodLife.com's Emily Longeretta was in the front row, and wrote on the celebrity website that Knight "seemed out of it. While the men started their choreographed dances, Jonathan stood uncomfortably in the background -- actually just standing and texting on his phone during the performance."

"Okay Knight is coming out"

Can you really still call them a boy band if they are in their 30's?
 
2013-04-06 02:04:26 PM
Must have been a pretty intense show where someone on stage has the opportunity to text on his phone.

Pretty sure the bulk of them (if not all of them) are in their 40s.

Well, they are still males in a band.

He knows he has an anxiety problem but tours anyways?
 
2013-04-06 02:21:54 PM
Was their fan pissed?
 
2013-04-06 02:36:10 PM

skinink: He knows he has an anxiety problem but tours anyways?


He went through the same issues 20+ years ago.  There were plenty of media appearances (including a spot on the Arsenio Hall Show) back then where he wouldn't even show up due to an anxiety attack.  Since he rarely (if ever) solo'd he wasn't missed.
 
2013-04-06 02:57:42 PM
My cousin is their tour manager. I'm gonna have to call him and find out what happened.

Wow.

I now feel lucky for having been out of the pop culture loop back in elementary school.

/Not really.

that was a very sad article. makes me wonder why he ever was a performer, and who pushed him into doing something that must have been terribly painful for him.
 
2013-04-06 04:58:00 PM
I figured it was him before I even clicked the article. Poor guy. A reunion tour was probably his worst nightmare and if I remember this is their 3rd time out since getting back together.

As someone who has social anxiety I sympathize. Nothing is worse than trying to suck it up and push through only to have to admit defeat. Although I've never done in front of an audience and then had the internets talk about it. Poor little lamb.

Saw them the first tour after the reunion and then when they toured with Backstreet Boys and had a blast both times. They put on a great show considering none of them are kids or boys anymore. Decided to skip this tour because, well, 98 Degrees. Ew.

Anxiety my ass. It suddenly hit him that it is 2013 and he is performing at a New Kids on the Block show. shiat he was embarrassed. Probably figured that no amount of money was worth his dignity.

"Jonathan stood uncomfortably in the background -- actually just standing and texting on his phone during the performance"

What a class act. Moving out of everyone else's way when texting during a concert.

Beach Boys, Kids In The Hall, Sonic Youth... it happens.

What's the audience for 40 year old boy band dudes? Is Justin Bieber still going to have a draw when he looks like Ellen Degeneres?
 
2013-04-06 07:44:21 PM
Maybe he suddenly realized how bad NKOTB's music sucks.
 
2013-04-06 08:27:49 PM
Wait til their second reunion tour. They' change the name of the group to "Old Dudes In The Home"

MILFs.

It would be awesome if their reunion show was just them doing covers of black metal songs with no explanation.

"Hi, we're the New Kids on the Block, and we're gonna do something a little different tonight...."

Try mid-40s...

FTFA "Knight "seemed out of it...visibly out of sync"

Seems like a natural reaction to a live performance of "Hanging Tough" in the 21st century.
