The Backstreet Boys, one of the biggest boy bands ever with over 130 million albums sold worldwide are set to celebrate their 20th Anniversary as a band this year. With the band set to embark on its 20th Anniversary reunion tour across North America starting in May 2013, the appearance in Kuala Lumpur serves as a prelude and a special occasion for its Malaysian fans with the band performing together prior to kicking off their big tour.
The quintet made up of AJ McLean, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson, Howie Dorough, and Nick Carter have developed their music over the years from teen-inspired pop tunes that made them superstars to evolve to more adult contemporary undertones evident in their come-back albums in 2005 – Never Gone and in their 2007 follow up - Unbreakable.
The 2009 release of This is Us featured big hook songs like “PDA”, “Bye Bye Love” and “Straight Through My Heart” featured tracks that reminded fans of the Backstreet Boys magic. The album featured the group’s classic sound and vision while also placing it squarely in today’s music environment.
