The worldâ€™s top-selling boy band, the Backstreet Boys (BSB), will be heading to Malaysian shores as part of their â€œIn A World Like Thisâ€ tour on May 3.
Organized by The Livescape Group, their one-night only show aims to attract more than 6,000 screaming fans toÂ Stadium Negara.
â€œWe are thrilled to be working with Livenation to bring the Backstreet Boys back to Malaysia. As one of the worldâ€™s largest and foremost boy bands, we are sure that their appearance in Kuala Lumpur will be highly anticipatedâ€, said The Livescape Groupâ€™s director of live events Rahul Kukreja to the New Straits Times.
The five-member American pop vocal group was formed in 1993 and consists of AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell.
The band shot to fame with their self-titled debut album, Backstreet Boys in 1996.
They had since released a hugely successful follow-up album, Backstreet’s Back in 1997, before risingÂ to greater heights and superstardom with their third album Millennium in 1999.
BSB released their fourth studio albumÂ Black And Blue in 2000 andÂ took a two-year break before releasing a comeback album Never Gone in 2005.
Kevin Richardson then left the group to pursue a solo career, and the four existing members continued on and released two albums, Unbreakable in 2007 and This Is Us in 2009.
In 2012, Richardson rejoined the Backstreet Boys and a year later, the band celebrated their 20th anniversary by releasing their first independent album, In A World Like This.
Together, they have sold over 130 million copies of their albums worldwide.
Those who want to relive the memories of the BSB mania can purchase tickets, that are priced between RM208 and RM688.MYNEWSHUB.CC
