CINCINNATI - Thousands of nostalgic teeny boppers and fans of 90's pop music converged upon Cincinnati Friday evening for a concert headlined by an iconic boy band.
The sequined lotharios came equipped with all the pyrotechnics, throwback dance moves and pop hits that made them the collective object of desire for an entire generation of young women (and their mothers).
Donning matching white suits, Nick, Kevin, Howie, Brian and A.J. belted out hits such as "I Want It That Way," "As Long As You Love Me" and "Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)" to a sold-out crowd of adoring fans who oft travel the country to watch them perform.
For the band, this tour stop was a homecoming of sorts. Band members Brian (Thomas Littrell) and Kevin (Scott Richardson) hail from Lexington, Ky. Their stay in the Queen City is the closest they'll be to their hometown during their multi-month world tour.
It was second of three scheduled tour stops in Ohio for the Backstreet Boys. They previously performed in Toledo and will move on to Cleveland for a performance at Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica Music Center on Saturday.
The concert was also a chance for pop-culture aficionados to find out answers to the question "Where are they now?" for several other former pop superstars.
If after Saturday night's performance you're still telling yourself, "As long as there'll be music, we'll be comin' back again," you can find out complete tour information at the following link: http://ow.ly/nNMYb
