New Kids On The Block Opening Act

Posted (edited)

hello again, monsters! so, today i came across a gaga interview from 2008 while i was watching some performances:

she brought up the fact that she was the opener for NKOTB, so i looked for recordings of the performance. i came across this video that recorded the set up until the end of Paparazzi, from the audience view:

and then i also came across this video, which i’m guessing was reference for the cameramen during the performances :

she was so electric here, it’s no wonder that she caught so much attention early on! does anyone know where the rest of the set might be found? links would be appreciated :kara:

Not only that, but in most cities she opened for the NKOTB, she was doing a separate solo show at smaller venues and using most of the money to pay for act with NKOTB since what she wanted was way over budget.  

EDIT:  OK, I'm a flop, she actually talks about it in the video you posted. :flop:

her performing at so many venues so frequently is probably what helped her a lot with getting big so quickly as well, before it got easier to spread your name online the way we can nowadays!

Yeah, I attended their 2008 reunion tour...and the opening act we got was Natasha Bedingfield. To think it could've been Gaga :bradley:

She was only 22, but the way she acts, her level of artistry, her confidence... and this was just a beginning of her career! :firega:

Then the hair just split in two, the sound created stars like Ava Max

I remember the MB 2.0 show in Sacramento she mentioned those three little screens and said she was told it would make lessen her area to dance (or something like that). To which she replied “well I’m used to dancing on bar counter tops so that’s more space than I’m used to.”

They played Just Dance in the news here in Spain like "this is the new Madonna, a new bonde girl in the pop scene" and then I came across her acoustic version of Poker Face at the Cherrytree house and I just fell in love. I was like "hey, a blonde bitch that can sing and also play the piano? This is new". She was what I always wanted to be during that era
