Unfinished business for NKOTB front man:
( New York, NY) — Jordan Knight, lead singer of mega boy band New Kids on the Block, has just announced new U.S. tour dates in support of his newest solo album, “Unfinished.”
Jordan Knight states, “I am very proud and excited to tell you that Jordan Knight Live & Unfinished will be hitting hand picked cities across North America for an intimate evening of Music, Fun, and More! After the amazing NKOTBSB Arena Tour this past year, I feel truly blessed that I now have the time to get up close and personal with you, my fans, and sing these songs that mean so much to me! You’ve all played such a big part in making this album a success so I can’t think of a better way of saying THANK YOU, than to give you what you have asked for – Jordan Knight: Live & Unfinished!!”
“Unfinished” features the infectious, up-tempo pop hit “Let’s Go Higher” written by songwriter Colby O’Douis (Lady Gaga, Akon), and co-produced/arranged by Knight and Marcus Siskind. Also on the album is the second single, “Stingy,” featuring fellow NKOTB New Kids member Donnie Wahlberg.
Most recognized as the lead singer of New Kids on The Block, Knight was first introduced to fans through the group’s self-titled, debut album release in 1986. As a songwriter, he wrote his first Billboard Hot 100 #1 hit song “I’ll Be Your Everything” at the age of 17 for singer Tommy Page, which remained on the charts for 14 weeks and became RIAA certified gold. After selling over 80 million albums worldwide through the release of 6 group albums, Knight broke from NKOTB to embark on a successful solo career, which produced 4 Top 40 singles. His critically acclaimed debut self-titled album release in 1999 became RIAA certified gold and produced the Billboard Top 10 single “Give It To You,” which sold over a million copies and was nominated for Best Dance Video at the MTV Video Music Awards. Much to the delight of their loyal fans, Knight and NKOTB reunited in 2007, returning to the charts once again with “The Block,” the group’s first studio album in 14 years. With the album debuting at #1 on the Billboard Pop Album chart and #2 on the overall Top 200 chart, the group promoted their new release through a sold-out, 48-city worldwide tour.
