NKOTB Special to Broadcast From Boston

The return of the New Kids on the Block will get the VH1 "Behind The Music" treatment - only this time, the gossipy rise-and- fallfest will be broadcast live from Boston!

According to Perez Hilton, the music channel is planning to air a 90-minute special called "New Kids On The Block: A Behind The Music Special Event" at 8 p.m. Sept. 28 as Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre, Danny Wood and Jordan and Jonathan Knight take the stage at the TD Banknorth Garden.

It will be VH1's first "Behind the Music" live event and will combo the regular BTM biographical stuff with live shots of the first three songs of the group's sold-out hometown concert.

The show also will feature current clips and footage shot by the NKOTB members.

The show will follow the Boston boys from their days as unknown local teens to their stratospheric success in the 1990s, their split in 1994 and finally, their reunion 14 years later.

Must-see TV!
