Back on top
An officemate is looking forward to catching the Backstreet Boys concert on Oct. 28 at SM Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena.
Great to know that the group is back on top—its 2019 album “DNA” debuting at no. 1 on the Billboard charts.
Its original lineup—AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, and Brian Littrell—is still intact.
Said to have sold over 100 million records worldwide, the Backstreet Boys is acknowledged as the bestselling boy band of all time. It is also the first group since Led Zeppelin to have its first 10 albums reach the Top 10 on the Billboard 200, and the only boy band to do so.
The MOA Arena concert is part of its DNA World Tour, which kicked off May 11 and will end May 30, 2020, with a total of 109 dates.
