Backstreet Boys to go on tour
Backstreet's back. Again. Backstreet Boys, the boy band who demanded I Want It That Way, have announced a set of tour dates starting March 21 in New York.
They won't play Madison Square Garden this time around ¡ª or any of their previous gigantic arena hotspots.
The Boys' 13-city tour is a club-only affair, stopping at such intimate venues as the State Theater in Detroit and the 9:30 Club in Washington.
According to their label, Jive Records, they will perform all their hits plus a few songs from their upcoming CD.
The Backstreet Boys, who debuted in 1997, are putting the finishing touches on a forthcoming as-yet-untitled album, their first original outing since 2000's Black and Blue.
Over the past few years, the group's members have mostly stayed out of the spotlight except for a few benefit performances.
In 2002, Nick Carter released a solo album. Last December, Brian Littrell
signed a deal with Christian record label Reunion
