New Kids On The Dock

James P emails to alert me to the forthcoming New Kids On The Block cruise liner gig:

The band seem quite defensive, saying "this is not a step back" and that a cruise ship concert is "not a cheesy thing". The cruise leaves Florida for the Bahamas in mid-May, and is open to all fans of songs heavily reliant on the word 'Oh'.

James somewhat cruelly suggests this is the band following the Jane McDonald career path. That's well unfair, seeing as Jane started on the ships and then came ashore, while the New Kids used to be quite famous and are now cast adrift.
