Jonathan Knight Performs On ‘Today’ After In-Concert Anxiety

Just one day after Jonathan was forced to flee the stage because of anxiety issues, he and New Kids On The Block looked amazing and composed while performing on 'Today' on Apr. 5. New Kids On The Block looked like they were at the top of their game and Jonathan Knight didn't show any signs of anxiety when they took the stage on Today.

NKOTB Perform On The ‘Today’ Show

Singing “We Own Tonight” in matching slate suits, the New Kids nailed the performance and their choreography. And when the time came for Jonathan to sing his solo — a part that his bandmates had to sing for him last night — he performed gracefully, with brother Jordan Knight and bandmate Donnie Wahlberg putting their hands on his shoulders for support.

NKOTB seemed to be enjoying themselves on Today and they look ready to take the country by storm when “The Package Tour” begins with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men on May 31.

Jonathan Knight Battles Anxiety Issues

The performance should be a huge relief for NKOTB fans, who went into near panic last night, Apr. 4, when Jonathan walked off stage during a New Kids concert at the iHeartRadio Theater in New York City. Jonathan has a history of struggling with anxiety and it appeared to really be bothering him during the show, as he stayed in the background for a couple songs before retreating to the side of the stage for the majority of the concert.

But he looked confident on Today! We’re totally amazed that Jonathan can fight through his anxiety problems, which can obviously be crippling at times. He’s working through it for the fans and we love him for it!
