As 90s nostalgia rages on, it’s not a coincidence to see acts like Backstreet Boys hitting the arena circuit again with LiveNation. Today’s nostalgia really targets millennials because they are of that age where they’re just feeling the beginnings of a midlife crisis. However, if a midlife crisis is choreography and a plethora of catchy pop hits, count us in!
I Want It That Way
For 29 years the Backstreet Boys have delivered the finest pop music one has to offer, making them one of pop’s most influential performers. With countless #1s, record-setting tours, numerous awards and worldwide sales in excess of 130 million, BSB has been recognized as the best-selling boy band in history.
” BSB started singing “All I have to give “ and I was transported back to 1998 when I was 16 . Driving my 82 Oldsmobile, also known as “the couch “ since it was so roomy . Windows down , my girlfriends and I would sing this song at the top of our lungs . Any of our guy friends would yell as if they were being tortured but secretly knew all the words . Fresh air , freedom, and The Backstreet Boys.” – Autumn Neely
Back to the Future
In early 2019, BSB released their GRAMMY-nominated 10th studio album “DNA” on RCA Records. The album debuted at #1 and features the Top 10 hit “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.” The critically acclaimed and chart topping single was nominated for the “Pop Duo / Group Performance” 2019 GRAMMY, and was BSB’s first hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in 10 years. Upon its release, the single went straight to #1 on iTunes Top Songs and Global charts and charted in over 22 countries.
The DNA of BSB
The Backstreet Boys are thrilled to continue (delayed due to COVID) their biggest arena jaunt in 18 years along with the release of their new album DNA on RCA Records. BSB analyzed their individual DNA profiles to see what crucial element each member represents in the group’s DNA. Watch the video here http://bkstboys.co/DNAWorldTour2019 – to see how their individual strains, when brought together, create the unstoppable and legendary Backstreet Boys.
As Long As You Love Me
Over the years, the Backstreet Boys have continually captivated millions of people with their impressive catalog of hit songs and creative partnerships. Amid a break in the concert, Nick Carter announced to the crowd that his “band” was approaching 30 years of being the Backstreet Boys. A roar through Bridgestone Arena turned into a groan. Thirty years? No, not the Backstreet Boys, the ’90s boy band princes who charmed millions of teenyboppers clad in butterfly hair clips, bucket hats and low-rise jeans. And certainly not me and the thousands of similarly aged men. In conclusion, we are old, but Backstreet’s back and still having fun.
