What’s Happening On The Backstreet: December 2018

What a month, right?

One would think after the Backstreet Boys announced their album release and upcoming tour, they would take the rest of the year off and a well deserved break. As we all know though, we’re fans of the five hardest working men in the music industry and this month was full of a few more year-end successes!

If you think you’ve missed anything (or even if you haven’t), we’ve recapped it all below for an end of the year catch-up.

  • AJ and Howie attended Wales Comic Con at the beginning of the month. Our friend Janneke shared their Q&A panel with us — watch below!
  • Baylee Littrell released a single on country music radio, “Don’t Knock It”. If you haven’t bought it yet, you can do so here. Check out the release party festivities and all of Brian’s proudest dad moments here.
  • There’s a ton of new merch! Whether it’s a holiday or your birthday, you can find a gift guide here.
  • Shawn Mendes spoke about co-writing the Backstreet Boys’ new single, “Chances”. Watch him talk about not being able “to wrap his head around it” here.
  • The Boys were nominated for a GRAMMY! We’re still not over that sentence. We’re so so proud and will be watching excitedly in February.
  • Pentatonix had the Backstreet Boys on their annual Christmas special for a eargasmic “Winter Wonderland” duetWe *need* them to record this for a studio version.
  • Under The Tree With BSB in Boston was an entirely acoustic concert that fans had to win their way into. Listen here to hear the Mix 104.1 DJs discuss behind the scene with the “delightful” Backstreet Boys, here for a brief portion of the BSB Q&A, and see photos here. Oh, and you **MIGHT** want to hear this beautiful performance of “Chances”.
  • The Boys headed to Connecticut to take part in 96.5 TIC’s All Star Christmas. Listen to their pre-show interview here.
  • In their last performance of the year, the Backstreet Boys headed to Texas for the Merry Mix Show in Austin. Find Meet and Greet photos here and watch their backstage interview and game here.

Now you’re all caught up!

This will likely be our last post before Christmas. We’d like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday – wherever and whoever you are. ❤

Everything You Need To Know About The 2017 Backstreet Boys Christmas Shows

Although we’ve been updating the 2017 appearances post regularly, we know that not everyone pays attention (duh, we weren’t born yesterday). Honestly though, there is SO much Backstreet going on, a few extra posts can’t hurt, right?

Mainly, this post is because we so desperately don’t want anyone to miss the Backstreet Boys on the East coast! There are so many of you who have expressed to us how much you hate that you can’t make it to Las Vegas, so perhaps this is your chance. Scan the list below to see who, what and where you can catch your Boys during the holiday season.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • We will continue to update both this post with Christmas shows and the 2017 appearances so you don’t miss a THING!
  • All tickets are on sale now (11/1) with the exception of New York City. Presale for NY starts tomorrow (11/2). The presale code is 1027.
  • It is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY that there will be VIP sold through the BSB FC or Wonderful Union at all. Historically, radio hosted shows (which these are) have only allowed meet and greets that have been won through the station. We will tweet any opportunities we find (and try to remember to post here).
