These days Mark Wahlberg is one of Hollywood’s biggest box office draws, whose filmography includes roles as a championship boxer, foul-mouthed Boston cop, and the best friend of a talking bear. Years prior, however, Wahlberg cut his teeth alongside ’90s boy band New Kids on the Block as frontman of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch.
NKOTB reunited in 2008 and have been touring the globe ever since. Last night, they played the second of two shows at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The evening also featured performances by TLC and Nelly along with special guests 50 Cent and Biz Markie. The real highlight, however, came when Wahlberg himself stepped on to the stage, marking his first live appearance with NKOTB in 20 years.
The band has shared footage of their reunion with Wahlberg, which you can watch below.
