New Kids On The Block to Announce Reunion on 'Today'

April 1, 2008 (3:47 am) GMT
A source told People that '80s band New Kids On The Block will appear on Today Show this week to announce a reunion.

Despite the release of denials and little information about their reunion, it has been confirmed that will give an appearance on U.S. TV show "Today" this Friday, April 4. All the five original members - , Joey McIntyre, Danny Wood, Jordan and Jonathan Knight- are expected to give announcement on their reunion.

No further details have been released regarding the stint but the appearance will coincide with the 20th anniversary of their mega-selling album "Hangin' Tough". The boy band who made it big in the late '80s have also updated their official site giving an "Are You Ready?".

Talks of their reunion erupted in January this year after the site that has gone obsolete was revived and a new song was uploaded. The band allegedly is recording a new album but chooses to remain secretive about it. Wood had denied the reunion at one point but said that if there's ever a reliable source regarding them, then it would be the official site.

The band disbanded in 1994 but McIntyre, Wood and Jordan Knight have continued to work on music separately. Jonathan Knight became a real estate developer in Boston while Wahlberg continues his acting roles.
