On the Season 9 Wahlburgers episode “Pittsburgher Meets Wahlburger,” chef Paul Wahlberg and his brother, Blue Bloods actor Donnie Wahlberg travel to The City of Bridges to visit the new Wahlburgers location. At the grand opening, where hundreds of people waited in line for hours, Donnie spoke to the press about the Wahlburgers employees having a say in the menu. He says they created a Pirogi burger and a new ranch for the tater tots. But food wasn’t the only thing on Donnie’s mind.
Donnie took advantage of the publicity event to announce that New Kids on the Block are “definitely” going to tour in 2019, and yes, Pittsburgh will be on the tour map. The last time New Kids on the Block toured was in 2017. The “Total Package Tour” also featured Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul. It was Abdul’s first tour in 25 years. The Total Package Tour, which included 47 shows, grossed more than $38 million in revenue. Donnie said he isn’t sure who New Kids on the Block is going to tour with, yet. Wahlburgers airs Wednesdays at 10pm on A&E.
