CHICAGO – It’s time for a certain generation to get their screams of adulation ready, as New Kids on the Block – also known as NKOTB – are back on the road and appearing in Chicagoland at Allstate Arena in nearby Rosemont, Ill., on June 15 & 16, 2017. Joey McIntyre is one of the band members, and he also had a new mock reality premiere in April of 2017 called “Return of the Mac” (Pop TV Channel). HollywoodChicago.com was there to capture some Exclusive Portraits of “The Mac,” when he appeared at Studio Xfinity in Chicago in March to promote the show.

NKOTB began in 1986, as a white boy band counterpart to New Edition. Joey McIntyre, at only 12 years of age, replaced original band member Mark Wahlberg before the band started recording, and has stayed with them through their self-titled debut album in 1986, “Hangin’ Tough” (1988), “Step by Step” (1990) – the peak of the band’s mega-popularity – and through to their reunion album in 2008, “The Block.” Despite not being “Kids” any more, NKOTB still fill large performance halls like the Allstate Arena.

“Return of the Mac” is a hilarious mock reality show which pre-supposes that Joey McIntyre needs a new show business job between NKOTB tours. It features his real-life wife Barrett and three children. It premiered on the Pop TV Channel in April, and is available for downlad. For more information on “Return of the Mac,” click here.

  • Monica Raymund on set for 'Tanya'

    CHICAGOTV fans know Monica Raymund as paramedic Gabby Dawson on the long-running “Chicago Fire.” But the talented actor is expanding her range, debuting her first film as director, “Tanya,” at the Midwest Independent Film Festival on Tuesday, August 1st, 2017. The short film – written by Sam Forman – will be part of “Female Filmmakers Night” at the Midwest Indie, and is part of Raymund’s involvement with Hidden Tears Project, an organization dedicated to raising consciousness by creating media on gender inequality, sexual abuse and human trafficking.

  • They're Playing Our Song

    CHICAGO – During the late disco era of the 1970s, an unusual musical opened on Broadway. Essentially a two person stage play, “They’re Playing Our Song” involved a songwriter and a lyricist who develop a stronger connection than just writing partners. The always passionate Brown Paper Box Co. of Chicago has unearthed this chestnut with a bright and fun revival at the Rivendell Theatre through August 20th, 2017.
