NKOTB BACKGROUND

New Kids on the Block sold more than 80 million albums worldwide -- including back-to-back international No.1 songs, 1988's "Hangin' Tough" and 1990's "Step By Step" -- and a series of crossover smash R&B, pop hits like "You Got It (The Right Stuff)," "Cover Girl," "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)," "Hangin' Tough," "I'll Be Loving You," "Step By Step" and "Tonight." The group shattered concert box office records playing an estimated 200 concerts a year in sold-out stadiums throughout the world. They still hold many of these records to date. They were Forbes' highest-paid entertainers of 1990, beating out Michael Jackson and Madonna. The band boasted an extensive and highly profitable merchandise line which included everything from lunch boxes and sleeping bags to comic books, marbles and dolls.

BSB BACKGROUND

For more than 17 years, Backstreet Boys have delivered the 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 No.1 songs, record-setting tours, and worldwide sales in excess of $100 million, Backstreet Boys are also among pop's most influential groups. 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 TicketMaster 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 Boys and Millennium albums. The band is currently wrapping up a worldwide tour in support of their recent album, This is Us.
