The soundtrack to his hit film Purple Rain was also popular as fans dashed to buy material to remember the late icon - it has re-entered the chart at two.

Danny Wood wants New Kids On The Block to have a Las Vegas residency.

The 45-year-old singer thinks the pop band - who are currently on their 'The Main Event' tour with Nelly and TLC - would be perfect for an extended run at one of Sin City's top hotels and is hoping they get an offer to create their own house show.

When asked if he'd be interested in a residency, Danny told the Las Vegas Sun newspaper: ''I would love it! When we're in Las Vegas, the people treat us so nice. And to go from your room to the elevator to do the show, it doesn't get much better than that.

Nelly's Concert Cancelled Following Arrest


Nelly

The Hot in Herre hitmaker was detained in Tennessee on Saturday (11Apr15) after a state trooper allegedly discovered a variety of illegal drugs and firearms onboard his tour bus during a traffic stop.

The hip-hop star was due to perform at Missouri State University on 23 April (15), but organisers have announced the gig was axed on Tuesday (14Apr15) without explanation.

Nelly's lawyer Scott Rosenblum is confident his client will not be charged over the incident because up to 20 others were using the bus at the time of the bust. Since his arrest, the rapper has promised to be "more aware of all the people I associate with".
