Reportedly, none other than actor/musician Donnie Wahlberg was in attendance for Periphery's House Of Blues gig in Chicago on Sunday. Wahlberg, of course, is best known as a member of O.G. boy band New Kids On The Block, brother to actor Mark Wahlberg and current husband of Jenny McCarthy.

Check out Wahlberg's thankful tweet to the band (and Periphery guitarist Mark Holcomb's gracious response) below!

According to Metal Injection, Donnie's people even contacted Periphery. Apparently, Wahlberg's son Elijah is a big fan of the band's progressive metal.

This seems a lot like Forest Whitaker watching Bring Me The Horizon!
