Ky. native Richardson will juggle return to group with acting career

Let’s take a look at Kevin Richardson’s Facebook page and see what the Backstreet Boy and native Kentuckian is up to.

At the top of the page is a photo about BSB’s huge new honor: a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which the group learned last week it will receive in 2013, along with musicians such as Janis Joplin and Luther Vandross.

Lights dimmed for the third time and the crowd was not excited for another front act. Around 10,000 fans, some of them having lined up as early as 4 p.m. under unstable weather for the supposed-to-be 8 p.m. concert on Sunday, June 3, were anxious for the show they paid thousands of pesos for.

But when nine images flashed on-screen and nine shadows emerged at 9 p.m., the audience erupted with deafening cheer.

The 80’s and 90’s collided at SM MOA’s The Arena earlier this week as iconic boy bands from those two generations brought nostalgia onstage with old but familiar beats.

BACKSTREET’S back all right, as were thousands of boy band fans who turned back the clock to reminisce about the good ol’ days at the Entertainment Centre on Monday night.

Two of the biggest pop groups of the 1990s – the Backstreet Boys and New Kids On The Block – may have been older and greyer (albeit in some cases, a lot more buff) but then so were most of us in the audience.

It meant the moves were a little slower. But it was made up for with enthusiasm, as the foursome and quintet known for their slick dance moves gave it their all to slide, jump, thrust and strut along the stage.

BACKSTREET’S back. All right?

It’s been tentatively announced that millennium-era boy band the Backstreet Boys, who visited Shanghai not long ago, are getting the call to come back to perform in June.

This time with their current touring mates, New Kids on the Block.

And touring mates isn’t exactly accurate either, as more than just sharing the same stage, they’ll be doing so concurrently, singing their respective greatest hits together. It’s the kind of spectacle that barely can be contained by its very own acronym, “N.K.O.T.B.S.B.”

FOR Backstreet Boys’ Howie Dorough, being 38 and in a boy band isn’t weird at all.

“When we started, a boy band was just a group of boys singing together,” he explains.

“And we still get called that, but you know what? We’ve learned to accept it. It’s great to be called anything these days and to still be going strong.”

Performing tonight in Adelaide, Howie says the band, including Brian Littrell, Nick Carter, AJ McLean and Dorough pictured below, couldn’t wait to return Down Under.

THEY may be older, hiding bald patches with hats and some physiques may not be quite what they once were, but Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block were back with bang last night.

In an unashamed feast for every teen of the Nineties, the boy bands unleashed a cavalcade of ballads, hip thrusts and fist pumps at Rod Laver Arena.

You could have been forgiven for walking in on a Chippendales show to begin with.

Howie Dorough isn’t the most popular Backstreet Boy, and he knows it.

He doesn’t have the youthful charisma of Nick Carter, the blond-bombshell looks of either Carter or Brian Littrell, or the bad-boy appeal of A.J. McLean. All the same, Dorough considers himself “the glue within the guys” — a solid, steady and comforting face for the Backstreet Boys.

He isn’t the only one who thinks so. Carter once called Dorough “the man in the Backstreet Boys,” and more than one observer has noted that, when the Boys walk into the audience to take female fans onstage, Dorough’s choice is likely to be the least attractive.

With that kind of team spirit, then, it’s not surprising that, when Dorough’s first solo album — Back to Me — came out in November, it had been five years in the making.

Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean and his wife Rochelle DeAnna Karidis announced that they are expecting their first child, People reports. The couple took a modern route of telling the world — they posted a video on YouTube to share the news.

“Because we love you all so much, we wanted to share with you — for the first time — something very special. We’re having a baby!” McLean says in the video.

McLean and Karidis were married in December 2011.

After leaving the group in 2006, Kevin Richardson – the fifth and oldest member of the Backstreet Boys – has finally confirmed that he will rejoin the popular 90s boy band, which is set to record another album this year.

“Hello beau-ti-ful people. Yes, the cat is OFFICIALLY out of the bag. It’s on and cracking!” the singer tweeted earlier this week.

Richardson was referring to the announcement made by other Backstreet Boys members Brian Littrell, Nick Carter, Howie Dorough and AJ McLean in the group’s official Twitter account.

A.J. McLean from the Backstreet Boys has gone into rehab again … TMZ has learned.

One source tells TMZ McLean has been “out of control” in the last few months because of substance abuse, and it was interfering with plans for the Backstreet Boys’ upcoming tour with New Kids on the Block.

Sources say on a Backstreet Boys cruise last month … A.J. appeared under the influence much of the time.

McLean has battled addiction for years. He was in rehab in both 2001 and 2002 for alcohol and cocaine abuse.

The Backstreet Boys are back in Atlantic City for a weekend performance at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort

The Backstreet Boys find themselves at a career crossroads. Part of the wave of early ’90s boy bands, they have recently parted ways with Jive Records, their label of 17 years, and are exploring what comes next.

The group, although never a critical favorite for its brand of dance-pop, nonetheless has sold 130 million records and tallied seven Top 10 albums, including last year’s “This Is Us.”

For now, the show goes on for the four remaining Boys – Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and A.J. McLean – who are performing this weekend at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort. (The fifth member, Kevin Richardson, left in 2006.) [Read More]

You don’t have to be a teenager to scream like one.

Last night an overwhelmingly female audience partied like it was 1999 with the Backstreet Boys, the last boy band standing from an era when today’s 20- and 30-somethings were screaming teens.

“Who saw us for the first time when you were, like, 10?” Brian Littrell asked midway through the 100-minute set. Apparently, pretty much everyone.

From the opening salvo of “Oh my God, were back again!” on “Everybody,” the Boys gave a nearly sold-out crowd exactly what it wanted: All of the biggest hits, and a minimum of lesser-known filler. [Read More]

Don’t be surprised if you see a second-generation Backstreet Boy at the supergroup’s upcoming concert.

At a recent concert in Raleigh, N.C., the 7-year old son of a member introduced his dad’s band, according to the News & Observer.

“It’s a great time for us,” member Howie Dorough said. “Each of us is [also] working on individual solo projects and still really enjoying working with the group. I have a new chapter in my life with my family and helping others.”

When the Backstreet Boys formed in Orlando during 1993, it quickly gained fans and hits starting with its self-titled 1996 debut. As fans know, the band has sold more than 130 million albums, making it one of the most successful groups in history, according to Billboard. [Read More]

Backstreet’s back! Oh wait, they never left.

So says Brian Littrell, 35, a founding member of the mega-successful boy band, the Backstreet Boys.

“There’s so many people out there who don’t know we’re still around,” Littrell said during an interview last week from Orlando, Fla., the birthplace of the band. “People say we’ve been out of the loop — no, actually, we’ve been busting our butts.”

Indeed, BSB didn’t stop (it didn’t break up, either) after 1999’s smash hit, “Black & Blue.” The remaining members — Littrell, Nick Carter, A.J. McLean and Howie Dorough — kept touring and releasing platinum-selling records, even as the band slipped from the mainstream eye. [Read More]
