Joey McIntyre is THE KID, the youngest member of New Kids on the Block, the biggest "boy band" in history. In this inspiring, entertaining and deeply personal coming-of-age story, Joey takes the audience from his hometown of Boston to sold-out stadium tours, when three generations of family drama becomes three decades of stage dreams. With music from his childhood, music he helped make famous and music that inspires him, THE KID is about the power of family--the family we're born to, the families we make-- and how sometimes finding your own voice starts with learning how to listen. THE KID shows us that every stage is different-and you may have to play them all before you find your stage.
"Denver Center Attractions is proud to be working with this talented group on their new project. Pay attention Denver, Mr. Joey McIntyre is an extremely talented young man."- Randy Weeks, Executive Director, Denver Center Attractions
