Jonathan Knight Apologizes For Walking Off Stage, Should Fans Forgive Him?
When fans attend a New Kids On The Block show, they expect to see dancing, singing, banter and maybe even some shenanigans. What they donít plan for, however, is one of the guys randomly walking off stage in the middle of the set without any kind of explanation. Unfortunately for fans in New York City last night, thatís exactly what they got last night during the reunited boy bandís gig at the iHeartRadio Theater.
According to The New York Daily News, Jonathan Knight walked off mid-set, leaving his fellow group members to dispel the tension by making some heís-using-the-bathroom jokes. When he never returned to the stage, it became pretty clear that something serious was wrong, but as for what that something might be, no one seems to have any idea.
Hereís Knightís only comment about the incidentÖ
Since coming back together five years ago, the guys have toured extensively. Thus, any nerves or professional rust should have been well taken care of by the time they took the stage last night. Unfortunately, it seems Knightís head just wasnít in the game for whatever reason.
The majority of fans seem willing to be supportive in this instance, but given how much money concertgoers paid, thereís something about what happened that feels a bit selfish and inexcusable.
