New Kids on the Block cancel concert

It's been a warm, sunny morning at Rockefeller Plaza in New York, perfect weather for a New Kids on the Block concert, but the show had to be postponed because of Hurricane Gustav, some 1,300 miles away.

New Kid Danny Wood says it wouldn't have been right to perform when New Orleans was in the middle of what could be a "pretty devastating" storm. He says the band is "praying for the people of New Orleans."

Fans had been camped out since Friday to see the show. The New Kids mingled with them, signing autographs, taking pictures and promising that they'd be first in line when the concert finally does take place.
