Backstreet’s back and they’re hangin’ tough with NKOTB!
By popular demand, the leading boy band of the ’90s is teaming up with the boys from Beantown for a concert tour that will invade arenas and thrill pop aficionados in the Summer of 2011. Fans have been clamoring for such a collaboration ever since last June, when the Backstreet Boys surprised NKOTB fans at Radio City Music Hall in New York City by performing “I Want it That Way” live.
Ahead of next year’s trek across North America, the Backstreet Boys (Brian, AJ, Howie, and Nick) and New Kids on the Block (Donnie, Joey, Jordan, Jonathan, and Danny) will take the stage together for a live performance at the 2010 American Music Awards later this month.
This year’s AMA will be presented Nov. 21 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles and broadcast live on ABC. Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Ke$ha, and Christina Aguilera will also perform.
