Backstreet Boys - Now And Then!
Long before One Direction
stepped into our lives, we were all about the famous boyband Backstreet Boys
! They've been in the spotlight for years, but they've changed a lot since the time they once got famous. But how did it all start and what are they up to nowadays? We've taken both a walk down memory lane, and found out what they're up to today! Click on the pics and read what we came across!
NOW: Now we're truly excited to see them as a complete five-piece again on August 31, in Central Park as a part of Good Morning Americas Summer Concert Series, were they will be performing. Are you just as thrilled as we are or do you think boy bands are one piece of joke?
THEN: BSB was formed in the year of 1993 in Orlando, Florida and the group is Howie Dorough
, Nick Carter
, Brian Littrell
, A.J McLean and Kevin Richardson
NOW AND THEN: No matter what, the boys know how to move! All of their dances are memorable and have influenced many people all over the world. Their shows offers not only good music, for sure!
THEN: Here they are, winning one of all the awards. They've sold over 130 million albums all over the world- how cool is that?! We can't even count the number of awards they have received throughout the years.
NOW: A couple of years back New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys
decided to do a summer tour together. They appeared on American Music Awards
were they did a song medley with songs from both of the groups. And yea, it was pure awesomeness!
NOW: The group during one of their concerts.
THEN: A young Nick Carter
back in 2000 when BSB had their glory days. Beside BSB he has also tried out the solo artist life. He released one album, but that was all! And did you know that when he and Paris Hilton
had a relationship, he made a Tattoo
of her name at his wrist. When they broke up he remade it to a skull and a text saying "Old habits die hard". Haha!NOW: And here's Nick today. He looks kinda the same, right!
THEN AND NOW: Many of you may already know that Kevin Richardson
left the group in 2006 but to our joy, they announced in April this year that he will be back. During his pause the group released two albums, "Unbreakable" and "This Is Us". What Kevin himself did is unclear but we know that he turned up a few times with the group even though he was no longer one of the members.
THEN: Kevin wasn't the only one in the group trying out a solo career, A.J McLean did too. He called himself "Johnny NoName" which was his alter ego, when he performed without the other guys from BSB. In 2008 he did his first solo tour with songs he had written himself. NOW: At the end of this year Kevin will release his second solo album while he still is a part of the BSB. Exciting!
THEN: Brian Littrell
first started off his singing career by joining a Baptist Church in his hometown Lexington. When he got the offer of being one of the members in BSB, he had plans of become a music minister. Wonder how his life has looked like now if he had turned the offer down?NOW: Today he is happily married to an actress named Leighanne Wallace. They have one son together and right at this moment, he is in the studio together with his band members recording their upcoming album.
THEN: Just as many of the others in BSB, Howie Dorough
also got a solo career. Not as a singer but as a songwriter together with a former 3deep member CJ Huyer. He and his brother also founded a company called Sweet D among some other similar things. NOW: Since 2010 he has beside being a Backstreet Boy, also managing a Canadian band Neverest.
