It’s the return of Marky Mark! Mark Wahlberg shocked ecstatic fans at Madison Square Garden on June 22, when he joined New Kids On The Block on stage for a surprise appearance. Watch it here!
Mark Wahlberg, 44, ended his music career with Marky Mark & The Funky Bunch 20 years ago, but we’ll NEVER forget “Good Vibrations!” And since it’s highly unlikely that we’ll ever see Mark perform the hit again, he did give the crowd quite a treat by making a quick appearance on stage at New Kids On The Block’s June 22 concert in NYC — and fans are going nuts over it!
The Ted 2 star was introduced to the stage by 50 Cent, another one of the band’s surprise guests, with “Good Vibrations” playing over the speakers. Unfortunately, Mark didn’t break out into his rap classic, but he did wave to the crowd and shake hands with the boy banders, including, of course, his brother, Donnie Wahlberg.
The whole thing was over pretty quickly, but the crowd’s roar was deafening after the A-list surprise. Almost immediately, news of Mark’s appearance went viral, and has been blowing up the Internet ever since, with fans freaking out about what went down.
Donnie even uploaded a photo of the special moment, in which he and his little bro embrace in a sweet hug. “Marky Mark retired 25 years ago, but I still loved sharing the staged w my brother @mark_wahlberg tonight,” he wrote. “Thanks 50!! #MainEvent.” The picture got nearly 25,000 likes, and fan comments confirm just how excited the public was about this.
