Best Known For: Being 2 of the most prolific pop acts of the 80’s and 90’s. The New Kids were the beginning of the boy band generation, the Backstreet Boys defined it.
This epic boy band union came about in November 2010, when the groups closed out the American Music Awards. Each of the groups’ 9 members performed each others songs together. The songs included “Everybody”, “I Want It That Way”, “Larger Than Life”, “Hangin’ Tough”, “Step by Step”, and “The Right Stuff”
If you’re a fan of pop music, good times and the epic voices of the guys then this is a must see event! Each of the groups has been back in the studio over the past few years, recording hits, dropping albums and working with the best in the business.
Backstreet Boys released a 2009 album entitled ‘This is Us’ and worked on the project with Max Martin, Ryan Tedder (One Republic), RedOne (writer for Lady Gaga and pretty much everyone that’s hot right now), Ne-Yo, Brian Kennedy, Alex James, Pitbull, Claude Kelly, Jim Jonsin, Eddie Galan, T-Pain, Rami Yacoub, Kristian Lundin and more! The Latin American leg of the ‘This is Us World Tour’ begins in late 2011.
New Kids on the Block reunited in 2008, dropping the singles ‘Summertime’ and Single feat. Ne-Yo.’ The Block, their first album in 14 years debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums Chart and #2 on the Billboard 200. Since then they have worked on solo projects and gone on a world tour. After closing the American Music Awards with Backstreet the rest became history!
