Jonathan Knight Walks Off Stage Mid-Concert

Last night in New York City, New Kids On The Block were in the middle of performing Survive You to a packed crowd when he suddenly just walked off the stage. I know Jonathan has had some issues in the past, but it apparently shocked all of the other members of the group who laughed it off by saying that Knight had to go to the bathroom. He never came back, but did Tweet early this morning that he was sorry. That is all anyone has said about it.

Amy in MI said...

ethorne said...

He was my favorite! Well, he and Jordan rotated.

dragon said...

I thought his name was Jordan knight

Meanie Reese said...

That must've been a helluva dookie bubble!!

Anyone know what the issues are?

LottaColada said...

@dragon- that's his brother

ethorne said...

@dragon-My 2 faves are brothers.

Karen said...

My friends and I are planning to get smashed and see them when they come to town in June! Hopefully I'll be too drunk to notice if he does it again.

Lisa said...

He's struggled with anxiety issues for years. I feel his pain.

Chloe Tyler said...

Wasn't he on Oprah years ago saying he suffered from crippling anxiety and panic attacks?

Christopher Cruz said...

I was more of a Milli Vanilli/Salt N Pepa kid.

Lucas said...

@ethorne - mmmmm hmmmm. I bet they did. ;)

LottaColada said...

@ethorne, you owe me a coke.

@Dragon, Jonathen is the one in the middle Jordan is the one next to him on the right.

Meanie Reese said...

Oh man, anxiety sucks. I feel his pain, too. As much of a ham as I can be, I cannot even imagine playing to crowds like this.

nevermindthat said...

Is it Jordon or Jonathan who suffers from real bad anxiety?

Im seeing them in concert in July; not by choice my friend's husband ( who is Black) said he would rather be caught at a KKK rally than a NKOTB concert.
So she convinced me to go. Boys to Men will be there also.

dragon said...

@Ethorne and Lottam I didn;t even know there were two knights in the group. All I hear is about Jordon

All about Eve said...

Hope he's ok

Laura said...

They were on WWHL this week and apperently Joey McIntyre has a huge "member". I'm fascinated by this fact, sorry OT.

Supermom said...

Lol @ Amy in mi

ethorne said...

@Lucas-I may have started young, but not that young, lol

Meanie Reese said...

@Laura. LOL That's an OT I can get behind. ;)

ethorne said...

Happy Birthday Lotta!

Anna Nonymous said...

Maybe he couldn't handle it emotionally and had to go have a good cry somewhere? Memories? Stage fright? illness?

@Karrots - you know you have to tell us how you know, right?

Alicia said...

Haha Laura

Anxiety sucks. I walked off a job because of it. I was 22 however. It's supposed to get better as you age right? I don't have anxiety or panic issues a quarter of what I used to. But I'm still scared as hell of bridges. Shudder. I still can't drive over at least half of them in my city ..
I take the long way lol

Prima Cornice said...

They were a lot of fun on WWHL, and you could tell that they really get along.

@ethorne - I keed, I keed.

SueRH said...

My anxiety has gotten worse. In my 40s now. :(

LottaColada said...

@Laura, OMG he's my favorite one!

Anna Nonymous said...

testing

LottaColada said...

Thank you darling ethorne!

Lucas said...

Good for you, Karrots. Everyone should get the chance to bed their teen fantasies.

So on that note: Alyssa, baby, call me. Mmmkay? I know FSP is going to tell you that he truly loves you and I only want you for your body. And, well, he's right. But we're getting older and good loving is hard to come by. So hit me up.

ethorne said...

Even though I'm a Pepsi girl, I'll have a Coke for you today Lotta! :)

YEEESSSS! U took the post right outta my head! LOL!

FSP said...

@Lucas- take my woman's name out yo mouth!

Sherry said...

Lucas and Karrots you guys are very entertaining this morning.

I'm too old to know any of these boy bands. I have had a panic attack and I so feel for him.

discoflux said...

Laura - That may be some of the best news I've heard all day.

Its just U said...

Oh FSP!! I love it!!!

Its just U said...

I love them!!! I still listen to their Superhits CD.
I saw them in 2009 and it was one of the best nights of my life, seriously.
I was always a Jordan girl but that night I left a Donnie girl (although I would happily be the meat in that sandwich).
Poor Jonathan. I hope he's ok.

Lucas said...

@FSP - Duet?

lalalalauren said...

Lauren + Donnie = LUV 4 EVA!!!!

Get well Jonathan :)

Lucas said...

Awwww @Karrots deleted comments. I hate that.

FS said...

If you are bored and want NKOTB gossip (and some mean girls, I guess) http://www.lipstickalley.com/f369/

FSP said...

@Lucas - unable to watch at work. If you mean what I think you mean, ewwwwww! No offense to you.

Lucas said...

@FSP - I dig you bro, but not like that. It's a link to The Jackson/McCartney classic "The Girl is Mine". And it ain't gay if it's in a three-way.

FSP said...

@Lucas - I prefer the SNL Ebony and Ivory duet.

Nothanksdarlin said...

Dang, what did Karotts dish? I was too late to the party :( On-topic the Jordan Knight played the venue where my husband works and he was a very nice girls brought him a zillion gifts and he gave them all to the people that work at the venue. Husband said he was very professional, Not a diva just knew how to get his money and his work done

curlyhairslacker said...

I know someone who went on 2 of the NKOTB cruises, she's a Donnie fan. I couldn't imagine all the crazy fan girls.

Also, happy birthday, Lotta! Hope you make a weekend if it! :)

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

I feel so bad for him, his anxiety has been well-publicized for a long time. Panic attacks, all of that. It's hell! He's actually done a lot of good, going on Oprah's show like he did, letting people know about these problems.

I just hope that everyone at the venue knows it's most likely his anxiety, and not just him being a jerk or drunk/high.

FS said...

I didnt see Karrott's posts but I suspect she confirmed that Joey M has a large penis and confessed that she's slept with him. I've seen a few other groupie reports saying the same thing, including one encounter that happened after he got married.

Hegg said...

I have managed a panic disorder for years as well and I am actually surprised he was able to tour. Good for him for having this courage. If it were me, I would be on the toilet all night before having to go onstage and then probably cold sweat profusely and pass out. Panic Disorder is a mental illness with very unanticipated physical symptoms.

Just a girl said...

@Laura I know from personal experience that is not true. He's 5'9 and proportioned normally. And yes, Jonathan has anxiety and that had a lot to do with why they originally broke up. Jordan would of course back his brother and it created a division.
