The Backstreet Boys stopped by KTUphoria to perform and hang out with Cubby and Carolina. Kevin, Brian, AJ, Howie, and Nick spoke about how amazin their fans are, even after all this time. The connection with their fans is unlike anything else, with AJ saying they have the "best fans in the world." Howie jumped in, adding that it's been "24 years going strong and they're still with us."
Despite being together for so many years, the guys revealed they still get nervous before their shows. "That makes the show better," AJ said. "You’re into the show. Nerves are good." They've put out plenty of songs over they years, as well, joking that they haven't forgotten their own lyrics just yet. They're going to hold off on investing in a teleprompter for now.
They Backstreet Boys have been keeping super busy recently. Not only are they back in the studio working on new music, but they've been killing it at their Las Vegas residency "Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life" at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. The first single from their upcoming ninth studio album will drop in either the late summer or early fall.
In addition to their music evolving over the years, the boys have also evolved personally. They all have kids now, so it's been really fun for all of them. They even talked about who is the most fun "uncle" to each other's kids, saying it's definitely Kevin.
It's always a fun time when we get a chance to catch up with Nick, Howie, AJ, Kevin and Brian. We can't wait to hear the new music!
