NKOTB: When I Say Waffle, You Say House!

6/12/2009 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

After over 20 years in the business, New Kids on the Block have finally hit it big -- at the local Waffle House.



The group has a ritual of hitting up the 24 hour breakfast joint after their shows, and last night in Pittsburgh, party-cup carrying fans packed the place like they were giving away free patty melts.

Everyone involved with the whole crazy scene suddenly began screaming New Kids songs ... and judging the by the way the cook was dancing around in the kitchen -- the staff seemed to enjoy it.

I wished I was there. Who else hangs out with their fans before shows and after shows. No one NKOTB is the best. And their cd is hot and so is there tour.

Hey lost boy has anyone told your crazy and to get your facts together. Their concerts sell out in every city....the demand is there or they wouldnt be having a whole new summer tour. Don't be a hater....

And yes I am sooo jealous..that would be sooo awesome to be there when they showed up. I've seen them a couple of times already and they put on one hell of an amazing show.

When I say Waffle... you say HOUSE... lol If your not a nkotb fan, you just don't understand. The WH has kind of become a tradition for blockheads in the south... started by Donnie, when he was hungry after a show one night. Its yet another way these awesome guys thank their fans. How many other bands would invite their fans to dinner.. and pick up the tab? They really are the best group of guys, and they are so down to earth! This past year has been amazing... one party after another... and the new kid's definitely know how to party! They are amazing. To the non-fans out there who are talking **** ... don't knock it, till ya try it.... and also to each their own... TO DDUB: Remember there are lots of WH's in Texas... what do you think... after the Dallas show??? I hope to see ya there!

REALLY YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME W/ THE REMARK AFTER 20 YRS "THEY FINALLY MADE IT BIG!" NEWSFLASH NKOTB WAS HUGE IN THE IN THE LATE 80'S & EARLY 90'S AND BIGGER NEWSFLASH THEIR COMEBACK HAS BEEN JUST AS HUGE! ALL OF THEIR LONGTIME FANS ARE STILL LOYAL AND SUPPORT THEM WHOLEHEARTDLY! MAYBE YOUR TMZ STAFF SHOULD HAVE FOLLOWED THEM TO THE SHOW SO THEY COULD HAVE VIDEO OF THE PACKED HOUSE AT THE POST GAZETTE PAVILION! FUNNY THEY MADE IT ON TMZ SO I GUESS YOU CAN SAY U CERTIFIED THEM AS BEING PRETTY DANG IMPORTANT TO HAVE YOUR CREW FOLLOW THEM TO WAFFLE HOUSE AND TO EVEN POST ABOUT THEM!! HEY AS LONG AS YOU ALL ARE TALKING ABOUT THEM MEANS THEY HAVE SUCCEEDED CUZ WHY WOULD YOU BOTHER HAVING A STORY ON A NOBODY! RIGHT? LASTLY, HMMM SOMEONE MUST FOLLOW DONNIE WAHLBERG ON TWITTER BEING YA'LL KNEW WHERE THEY WERE AT! HOW AWESOME IS IT FOR A BAND TO GET THAT INTOUCH W/ THEIR FANS AND GO TO A PLACE JUST TO EAT & HANG W/ THE FANS! I CAN'T THINK OF TO MANY! HOW ABOUT POSTING SOMETHING POSITIVE YA KNOW MISERY LOVES COMPANY AND YA'LL TEND TO WANNA POINT OUT THE BAD OR MAKE BAD OUT OF GOOD! CRITIZING SOMEONE IS A MEAR FORM OF ONES OWN INSECURITIES AND MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER THAN TRULY U R DEEP DOWN! FYI THE ONE VIDEO U HAVE W/ JON AND THE INSANE GUY TRYING TO GET HIS AUTOGRAPH AND CALLING HIM THE A**HOLE OF THE GROUP - DO YOUR HOMEWORK AND MAYBE U WOULD HAVE UNDERSTOOD THE REASON JON WAS ACTING THE WAY HE WAS AND IT WAS NOT CUZ HE IS AN A**HOLE! STOP DOWNING PEOPLE! I HAVE LOVED THEM FOR 20 YEARS AND GONNA LOVE THEM UNTIL MY EXISTENCE ON EARTH IS NO LONGER NEEDED!

Finally hit it big, you must be kidding..Right? These guys have made a comeback and are better and hotter than ever!!!! What group would actually hang out with fans? Thats what I call great guys! Their concerts are kick a** and they put on a show better than anybody I have ever saw and the girls as well as guys now are still screaming for them! So stop being jealou and get a real writer that knows them to write instead of some hater looking for their own 15 minutes.
