As expected, the Wells Fargo Center was rocking Thursday night when New Kids on the Block took the stage for the latest stop of its #Mixtape Tour.
What wasn't expected, however, was a surprise appearance from the Eagles Cheerleaders on stage, who joined the group as they performed their latest single, Boys in the Band, which was released back in March to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the group's Hangin' Tough album.
"The fact that New Kids on the Block, 30 years after the release of their first album, has the ability to go on a national tour in sold out arenas, illustrates that great music and artists with transcendent talent will never go out of style," said Eagles Cheerleader Ally Hanna. "I could feel the electricity of the audience while I was onstage with them. It was a rock star moment! An unforgettable experience."
The party didn't end there, as the Eagles Cheerleaders stayed onstage to perform alongside New Kids on the Block for multiple songs, providing a treat for fans that saw their love of the Eagles and the Grammy-nominated group collide in one unforgettable performance.
"NKOTB is such an iconic band and they really paved the road for the boy bands that came after them," said Eagles Cheerleader Anna-Marie Matthews. "To be able to share the stage with this legendary group, was beyond memorable…and it was remarkable to dance beside renowned superstars Donnie Wahlberg and Jordan Knight."
If Thursday night's performance was any indication, the Eagles Cheerleaders look primed and ready to perform on Sundays at Lincoln Financial Field.
