This Week in History

10 years ago this week, pop sensation N'Sync took the stage for two sold out performances at Philips Arena on their no Strings Attached Tour. This show featured hits such as Bye, Bye, Bye, It's Gona Be Me, and Just Got Paid. This was N'Sync's second album together including members Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick. This group was not just a singing group but also a marketing machine creating merchandise around the album and tour including board games, microphones, lip balm, marionettes, books, key chains, bedding, clothing, and video games...not to mention a video about the making of the tour. Check out this clip from that video here-

The police performed together for 6 years releasing 5 chart topping albums together. Their best selling album, and their last, titled Synchronicity, included their most successful song "Every Breath You Take."
