Do you ever think to yourself, “Did that just happen?” Well, for the past two weeks that’s exactly how I felt about seeing you and NKOTBSB.
It all still feels so surreal. I’ve seen big arena shows and I’ve seen intimate local shows… but overall you guys took the cake… and I cannot express how glad I am that I got to see you. Especially since I almost didn’t.
My best friend invited me in January, but I was extremely hesitant about going. I felt that even though I grew up with Backstreet Boys and thankfully gotten to discover more about New Kids on The Block in my latter years, I felt like someone who was a bigger die hard fan than myself deserved to go not me.
However, with that said… I’m beyond overjoyed that I got to see you. You guys were literally a extremely marvelous surprise! By the second chorus of “Rockstar Lover,” you had me going “YOU’RE A ROCKSTAR LOVER! ROCKSTAR LOVER! YOU’RE A ROCKSTAR LOVER!” I didn’t even know you guys before then! I was dancing hardcore, and it was only a 3 song set! I’ve NEVER seen an opening act like yours!
I don’t have to tell you how hard it is to be an opening act, or even how hard it is to be in the music industry… believe me I know from the local artists I’ve seen. But what I can tell you is that I know –as well as you know — this is certainly not the end. It’s only the beginning.
I only wish that I haven’t discovered you guys so late. However, like I said… coming to the concert not knowing what to expect made it one of the most unforgettable events of my life. YOU GUYS were a part of that unforgettable night.
In conclusion… I want you to wrap your head around this… You toured with two of the biggest pop acts in music history. One of your predecessors of an opening act is Lady Gaga. Her producer is also YOUR producer… you’ve performed in front of thousands night after night for nearly three months. YOU MADE FRICKIN’ NATIONAL TV! All in a short span of time–shorter than most artists.
Cherish the memories you made… Enjoy the moments that you met people–famous or not– Thank you for being so sweet, and I look forward to seeing the BIG AMAZING THINGS TO COME. Keep taking the world over! One Club at a Time! 😉
Steph–aka Your Rockstar Lover! 😉 (P.S. Yes, I do wanna party with you! 😉 AND WE WILL! 😉 )
