BSB BACKGROUND

For more than 17 years, Backstreet Boys have delivered the very finest pop music has to offer � tightly crafted songs, floor-shaking rhythms, and unmistakable harmonies. One of the most successful groups in music history, with countless #1s, record-setting tours, and worldwide sales in excess of 100 million, Backstreet Boys are also among pops most influential. The band made history when all tickets for their greatly anticipated 11-week, 39-city Millennium North American Arena Tour sold out as soon as they went on sale- the vast majority within an hour. At the time the millennium tour set a ticket master record by selling 735,000 tickets in two hours. They are also among the few bands to have received the Diamond Award from the R.I.A.A. for sales of more than 10 million on both the Backstreet Boy's and Millennium albums. The band is currently wrapping up a worldwide tour in support of their recent album, This is Us. More information at www.backstreetboys.com
