Be a NKOTBSB press Photographer!

Be a press Photographer for the Day with New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to get real close to New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys?

John Gonzalez has a contest just for you!

You can be a NKOTBSB "Press Photographer for the Day" on May 26 when the guys perform at 7:30 p.m. at Van Andel Arena, 130 W. Fulton St.

The winner gets two tickets to the show, a chance to shoot all the photos they want near the stage (first two songs, that's all we typically get) and John Gonzalez was told a meet-and-greet with the band is a great possibility.

They'll even post one (or more) of your photos on And possibly in the newspaper. (That depends on deadlines.)

Want to win? Here is how to enter:
  • Email Tell me why you want to win, and tell me your favorite song by either band.
  • Put "NKOTBSB Photographer" in the subject field.
  • Be sure to include your name, address and cell phone number.
  • The deadline is 9 a.m. Tuesday. I will randomly select our grand prize winner and notify them Tuesday by e-mail.
  • Along with the main winner, I have an additional 10 pair of tickets and will randomly select those winners and also notify them on Tuesday.
