THE Twin Towers @Live franchise is back for the third time and will host major local, international and K-Pop acts in conjunction with the PETRONAS Malaysia grand prix weekend.
Now in the lineup that already features pop star Demi Lovato and K-Pop artistes U-Kiss accompanied by local stars Atilia and K-Town Clan on March 22, are the Backstreet Boys, headlining the March 23 show with Korean sensation UI and Malaysians Mizz Nina and Caprice.
The Backstreet Boys, one of the biggest boy bands ever with more than 130 million albums sold worldwide are set to celebrate its 20th Anniversary as a band, this year.
With the band set to embark on its reunion tour across the US in May, the appearance in KL will be the perfect warmup and a special occasion for local fans.
The quintet, comprising AJ McLean, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson, Howie Dorough, and Nick Carter, has developed its music over the years — from the teen-inspired pop tunes that made them superstars to more adult contemporary undertones evident in their come-back albums — Never Gone in 2005 and Unbreakable, two years later.
The 2009 release of This Is Us featured big hook songs like PDA, Bye Bye Love and Straight Through My Heart featured tracks that reminded fans of the Backstreet Boys magic.
The album featured the group’s classic sound and vision while also placing it squarely in today’s music environment.
More recently, the Backstreet Boys released a Christmas single, It’s Christmas Time Again, last year. [Source]
