This Week in History

On November 24th, 1999, the Backstreet Boys performed live during the inaugural year of Philips Arena. The “Into the Millennium” Tour occurred after the release of their hit album, “Millennium” that May. “Millennium” was the best selling album in the US in 1999 selling almost 9.5 million copies.

Last night on November 21st, at the American Music Awards, the show went back old school with performances by Bush with Carlos Santana, Bon Jovi, and New Kids on the Block along with the Backstreet Boys. The two bands performed for the first time with the name NKOTBSB. Together they performed a mash up of their hit songs which included, “Everybody,” “The Right Stuff,” “Step By Step,” and two songs form the “Millennium” album, “I Want It That Way” and “Larger Than Life.”

With NKOTBSB being 9 strong, they are working on their new tour now! They will stop in Atlanta at Philips Arena on June 22, 2011. Tickets will go one sale December 11th!
