Knight’s caption began, “Tonight I leave my family behind, but will forever cherish the memories and friendships formed!” He praised the crew, “who slept only a few hours each night but brought this show to the stage daily hat!!” along with the supporting acts who toured with them. Knight also gushed about his fellow NKOTBs, thanking them for how they “picked me up when I was feeling drained and kept me through our most aggressive touring schedule ever!”
Knight praised his “Farmhouse Fixer family,” referring to his HGTV show, and thanked everyone for “dealing with a very tired and grumpy self!!!” The entertainer also thanked the NKOTB fans and admitted that now that he was almost home he “can’t wait to get a few days of sleep to catch up and get back to normal life”.

As Bure’s fans may recall, NKOTB was featured in a Season 2 episode of Fuller House.

Before the performance, Bure and her co-stars Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber chatted to Ellen DeGeneres about NKOTB. They revealed the boys would be in an upcoming episode, and Bure admitted they were her “personal favorite” guest star appearance. Apparently they were Barber’s favorite too.
Sweetin teased that her co-stars were “like giggling schoolgirls all week” while filming that performance, although the ladies had met them before. Bure countered by gushed, “It was amazing,” and “My 13-year dreams came true.” Bure and some friends, including some “Fuller House” co-stars, attended an NKOTB concert in May 2019, and theirs Love for Knight and the band as a whole has been documented many times over the years.
