The reunion tour fondly known as NKOTBSB, delighted fans with a double dose of classic boy band dance moves and songs. The tour made a stop at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City over the weekend with the perfect mix of old and new as the bands sang their hits and hosted an old school dance party with some modern touches.

Lots of ladies cheered for their favorite band member along with a few guys sprinkled throughout the crowd. The hall was filled with an exciting vibe as the curtain lifted and there stood nine members of both bands, singing a mash up of “Single/”The One” with some of Coldplay’s hit “Viva La Vida.” Performing with NKOTB was Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Danny Wood, and Donnie Wahlberg While Backstreet Boys included Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell  and AJ McLean. The guys provided plenty of bare chests, crotch thrusting and genuine entertainment.

The stage included two main performance areas one in the middle of the venue connected to the main stage by a long runway. With their charming personalities on display, the guys sang on stage and even joined the audience singing to some very fortunate fans. The non-stop show featured sets by each band separately as they rotated on-stage followed combined performances which ignited even more energy in the arena for the already charged crowd.

The 41-date North American tour celebrates the bands’ funky moves, catchy tunes and trend setting fashions. Some crowd favorites included “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back),” “Bye Bye Love,”  “I Want It That Way,”  “Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely,” “Drowning,” “You Got It (The Right Stuff),” “Summertime,” “Please Don’t Go Girl,” “Step By Step”  and “Hangin’ Tough.”

After the concert Wahlberg and Knight made appearances at Dusk nightclub inside Caesars Atlantic City while Dorough and Carter hosted the after party at The Pool inside Harrahs Resort. For many in attendance it was a sentimental trip down memory lane as they sang along to the numerous number one hits from their favorite boy bands making for a very magical evening.

Coming Up: Next weekend Boardwalk Hall will continue to jam with the Britney Spears Femme Fatale Tour with Nicki Minaj making a stop in the seaside resort for their concert.
