Why BHs are family!

"I also attended the Seattle screening, and I was blown away at how good this DVD is. Of course the experience of watching it with the guys was something I will never forget. What band watches a movie WITH their fans? I can't think of one. That's why we BHs are family. This DVD is not a typical concert DVD. If you're expecting something similar to Hangin Tough live, this isn't it. We get to see the reunion from before the Today show in April 08 through to the Houston concert in July 09. And, it's from the guys' point of view -- how they prepared, how they felt, which concerts were their favorites, and where they're going next. If you consider yourself a fan of NKOTB, regardless of how insane a fan you are, this DVD is a must see! And for the current price of $9.99, I think almost anyone can afford it!"
A Welcome Return!

""Coming Home" is an enjoyable documentary about the welcome return of NKOTB. The guys take turns talking about what it was like to get back together 14 years after their much-too-early disbandment in 1994. In between interviews, rehearsal footage, and other various behind-the-scenes video, we are treated to some live performances from their past 2 years of touring.
The disc clocks in at about 85 minutes and the live performances have major replay value. Their stages of the past 2 years have been nothing short of spectacular with huge bursts of colorful lights, flashy big screeen graphics, and eye-pleasing fx. Add to that the vocal talents of the boys from Boston and a large assortment of unforgettable tunes and you have a winning ticket.
It would have been nice to see the music videos for "Summertime," "Single," and "Dirty Dancing" added to this collection, as their music-videos were always included in their past home video releases. I would also have liked to see more live performances such as their most amazing ballad "If You Go Away" as well as some others. Hopefully a full-concert DVD will be available at some point. And by the way, a live rendition of "Since You Walked Into My Life" is LONG Overdue! Add that to the next touring roster!
This disc is a must-have for all the long time fans and will hopefully just be the beginning of more to come. They've always been Far superior to the follow up acts like "Backstreet Boys" and "Nsync," and it's about time that the NKOTB have finally come home to the studio and the stage, where they belong. Hopefully this time they're here to stay."
Saw this at the Seattle DVD screening

"If you are a NKOTB fan, you *NEED* to buy this dvd. Saw it in Seattle (with all 5 New Kids watching with us!) and it is absolutely amazing. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll get up and dance (or throw popcorn around like Donnie Wahlberg) and you'll want to watch it over and over. Absolutely loved the whole thing!"
I was expecting more.

"I have attended two concerts from this tour and it is nice to have some of these live performances on DVD. But I was hoping for more behind the scenes, more of a documentary style video and in that sense - this just was not what it could have been. I am a long time and dedicated fan with high expectations that were not met. Their concerts are amazing, but this DVD is not."
