I Want My “Girls Night Out” With Debbie (& Joey)!

While I’m not Catholic, I have many friends that are and I want to confess!

That was my last time in a church, in October 2018, at the Notre Dame de Lourdes Catholic Church in Casablanca, Morocco!

My apologies for digressing!

Back to my confession: I’ve had a gay boy crush on Debbie Gibson since 1987 when “Only in My Dreams” became a worldwide hit!

Not only do I love her new song and I’m excited about the new album, but Debbie is performing a series of shows in Las Vegas this summer!

She and Joey McIntryre are doing a residency at the Sands Showroom in the Venetian!

The first four shows in August sold out immediately and four more shows were added in September. The last show on Sunday, September 19th, is on the day I arrive in Las Vegas!

Here’s where my disappointment comes in!

I arrive at 3 p.m. and the show is at 7:30 p.m. I so want to buy a ticket to see Debbie and Joey, but I don’t have much of a safety net with time if my flight is delayed!

I’ve never seen Debbie in concert and I’ve wanted to since 1987. I did see Joey with New Kids three times from 1988-1990!

Now, about Debbie’s new music — the new album, “The Body Remembers” arrives August 20, 2021. This is her first new album in twenty years!!!

It features her new song and video, “One Step Closer”, which is a total banger!

So, I’m in total fanboy mode and I’m sharing my seven favorite Debbie Gibson songs!

Why 7? It’s Vegas, baby!

Kick it off, Debbie!

“FOOLISH BEAT”

“ELECTRIC YOUTH”

“GIRLS NIGHT OUT” (TRACY YOUNG #VEGASVIBE REMIX)

“OUT OF THE BLUE”

“STAYING TOGETHER”

“SHAKE YOUR LOVE”

“ONLY IN MY DREAMS”

And, in full equality, here are my seven favorite Joey McIntyre songs, which does include six from New Kids on the Block!

“STAY THE SAME”

“COVER GIRL”

“HANGIN’ TOUGH”

“TONIGHT”

“STEP BY STEP”

“CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT”

“YOU GOT IT (THE RIGHT STUFF)”

Debbie’s new album also features a duet with McIntryre, “Lost in Your Eyes”, a remake of her 1989 #1 hit.

Here’s to me seeing Debbie and Joey on Sunday, September 19th!

P.S. If you’re still reading, here are a couple of bonus thoughts.

I saw New Kids in concert three times — in Du Quoin (IL), Cincinnati (Ohio), and East Troy (WI) and Jordan was my favorite.

And, I’ve seen Debbie’s friend (not enemy as the trash rags try to make it out to be), Tiffany, twice — in Du Quion (IL) opening for New Kids in 1988 and I saw her in Chicago at Gay Pride in 2010.

One final thought: if you ever get a chance, check out Debbie and Tiffany making the most of those rumors in 2011’s “Mega Python vs. Gatoroid” movie! πŸ™‚
