Maybe was because the world was seriously beginning to suffer the lack of quality boy bands in the music industry. Or maybe boy bands like The Wanted and One Direction have clearly paved the way for boy bands. We hear that 2013 is going to be the epic year of boy band comebacks – but not just the up and coming new ones.
Highly popular in the 90s, with slick choreography, matching (and sometimes a little cheesy) outfits, super good looks, and talent to boot, boy bands such as:
- New Kids on The Block (NKOTB)
- 98 Degrees
- Boyz II Men
- The Backstreet Boys (BSB)
..are coming right back into the spotlight. We know for a fact that NKTOB are launching their 2013 headline tour called, “The Package” with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men (sans Micheal McCary).
The North American tour kicks off next month in Connecticut.
On top of that, NKTOB recently released their sixth studio album titled, “10”. Plus, the multi-platnum selling 98 Degrees will soon be releasing “2.0”. BSB, on the other hand, officially announced at Twin Towers Alive 2013 that they’ll be releasing a new album and kicking off a world tour which starts in May 2013. Rumour has it that there’s also a BSB documentary film in the works!
Both new album and world tour are in conjunction with BSB’s 20th anniversary.
Oh man. The teenagers in us just suffered a few cardiac arrests.
