Donnie Wahlberg Discusses NKOTBSB Tour & Adding Boyz II Men [AUDIO]
Actor Donnie Wahlberg called into “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” Friday to dish on a brotherly collaborated burger joint called “Wahlburgers” and shares that the New Kids On The Block & The Backstreet Boys tour will continue, and may include Boyz II Men.
The “New Kids On The Block” member also shares that they will go back on tour with the Backstreet Boys saying, “We’re going back out with Backstreet Boys again. We have a few more parts of the world that we haven’t tackled with them.” Will we be able to see a solo NKOTB tour? “This making us guys and our fans long for the old days as well.” What about Boyz II Men? “Originally they were in talks to be on the NKOTBSB…We’ve wanted to work them for a long time.”
While we can see Donnie in the CBS series “Blue Bloods,” he tells us of his newly opened burger joint that he and Mark Wahlberg opened up with other brother Paul as the restaurant chef. Famously called “Wahlburgers,” he describes the story behind the store’s foundation: “We want to put our signature stuff in things we grew up with in it, and make the place and the environment and the experience for anyone who’s willing to come here and taste the food.”
He emphasizes how everything on the menu ties into their “family and life story,” who had grown up in a busy but loving family with 8 other siblings! As their more health conscious turkey burger goes to show, they use Mark’s favorite Stovetop brand stuffing and add ingredients that remind them of hearty leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner. Donnie reiterates that they are “keeping it honest to who we are.”
When asked whether he will expand the Massachusetts burger joint west, he states that he’d rather focus on making the store great with fine quality burgers than open a bunch of stores with low-quality products. “People have been calling us…from Canada,” he says, but states “we want fans to get the experience,” even if it means driving many hours to their joint!
Also, the “New Kids On The Block” member also shares that they will go back on tour with the Backstreet Boys! Donnie knows that after shooting a period of time on his TV show, he will reunite with his former bandmates to give a great show for boy band lovers around the world! They’re even trying to make a triple threat to include Boyz II Men, but they’re currently in the talk to make things work out! That would be one hit concert we wouldn’t want to miss!
