Canada Screws Over New Kids On The Block

Damn, Canada, get it together! First you give us Justin Bieber, then you think Dan Aykroyd killed someone, and now you’re depriving people of New Kids On The Block, surely breaking the hearts of at least dozens. Here’s what happened, from TMZ:

A rep for NKOTB’s “The Package Tour” tells TMZ, several gear trucks carrying production equipment — like lighting and other prop stuff — as well as key crew members were delayed at the Canadian border for such a long time … tour officials were forced to pull the plug on tonight’s show.

The rep wouldn’t specify why the trucks were held up — but did say the band members arrived in Canada safely … and on time.

We also spoke with someone at Canadian Border Patrol … who was also looking into the incident.

As for tonight’s show … it’s been postponed to tomorrow.

How do you live with yourself, Canada? Also, I had no idea they were touring, or that they were touring such huge venues, like the Staples center on July 5. According to Ticketmaster, there are still tickets; however the July 13 show at the Honda Center has the warning “NOT MANY LEFT” so get on it, everyone! This is such an exciting time to be alive.

In the words of LFO, “New Kids On The Block had a buncha hits.”

  • Sorry, America. For the record, we feel kind of bad about the whole thing. (For the record, we don’t affiliate ourselves with Justin Beiber. Or Nickelback, for that matter. Or Avril Lavigne. Or Prime Minister Harper.)

      • Bah! You’re right; I should have apologized for Celine, too. Now I’m apologizing for leaving her out of my apology. Not Anne Murray, though. That bitch is a national treasure!
