My sister and I waited 20 years to see New Kids On The Block in concert. It was worth it! We had a great time. Thankfully I threw a couple of sets of hearing protection in my bag as I was leaving work to go to the concert. We both wore our hearing protection and felt we heard the concert just great! When we went to the ladies room after, every one was screaming at each other. Obviously they did not wear their ear plugs!
