Backstreet Boys Back Together & 20 Year Anniversary
Fans were lined up at 9 p.m. last night to see all five members of the Backstreet Boys back together. It seems like just yesterday I got my first stereo system and my first two CD’s, Celine Dion’s Let’s Talk About Love and the Backstreet Boys’ self-titled debut album.
Seeing the mix of the young teens and grown women in the crowd you can see how Backstreet has stood the test of time. They not only beat out One Direction, they still induce the same ecstatic screams as Justin Bieber. They’ve only gotten better with age.
Backstreet Boys Juggle Family Life & Upcoming Tour
Nick Carter has ditched his bowl haircut in favor of a stylish flip and short look. Brian Littrell, thankfully, hasn’t changed a bit. A.J. McLean and Howie Dorough look younger and hotter than ever. Kevin Richardson is the only one that hasn’t gotten better with age, but he hasn’t changed much. The guys wore suave blazers and jumped around with all of the energy of Frankie Muniz on energy drinks.
Littrell called the craziness of their lives “a circus act.” You spend a long time as Backstreet, but then a long time as a family man. This summer is the 20th anniversary of The Backstreet Boys. They said they appreciate the fans and just finished their eighth studio album. It comes out July 30 and the boys that are now men hit the road in August.
Backstreet Boys “Permanent Stain” & “Everybody”
For the first time in too long, Backstreet is putting out new music. Their song “Permanent Stain” is off the new record. When you buy a ticket to their tour you get a download of the song. It’s a really fun song and throws you back to the early days of Backstreet.
They also performed the song they are best known for, “Everybody.” The performance really proved that Backstreet is back.
The best part, besides Nick Carter’s ridiculous dancing that made teenage me scream in joy, was a dad in the audience shaking his head. He had no clue how he got there. The only complaint about these performances is that the guys don’t sound completely together. Whether it’s because of the quality of the GMA sound system or their own mistakes, it’s hard to tell. Let’s hope they pull it all together before the tour!
