The closing ceremony of the American Music Awards in November 2010 saw two of the country’s biggest boy bands join forces on stage. The Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block performed a medley of their songs to a capacity crowd, as a taster of their forthcoming 2011 joint tour. New Kids on the Block are the badass boys of pop whilst their Southern cousins, the Backstreet Boys present the more soulful side of music. Not that they are not without their battle scars: They might have sold over 130 million records globally but it has not always been an easy ride for the band.

It all began in Florida in the early 1990s when music mogul Lou Pearlman decided to put together a boy-band with the intent of emulating the success of New Kids on the Block. A.J. McLean was the first member of the band and an extensive audition process saw Brian Littrell, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Howie Dorough join the fledgling group. All five shared a love of soul music but success did not come easily in their home country.

Their first single “We’ve Got It Goin’ On” barely made an impression on the Billboard charts although it did fare better overseas, particularly in European markets. Capitalising on this interest, the Backstreet Boys toured the continent over the summer of 1995 gaining fans wherever they went. They released their first album “Backstreet Boys” in May 1996, which became an instant success, particularly in Germany but was never released in the US. It would take the band another 12 months to conquer the US market and achieve the kind of success they were seeing elsewhere in the world.

Their second album, “Backstreet’s Back”, stormed the US market in mid-1997 eventually selling over a million copies. The debut single from the album, “Quit Playing Games With My Heart”, shot to number 2 on the Billboard 100 list and went on to sell over a million copies alone. The Backstreet Boys had come home.

However, success had its dark side. During 1997, the group became embroiled in a lawsuit against Lou Pearlman and the following year, band member Brian Littrell underwent open-heart surgery to correct a heart murmur.

The group bounced back from setbacks with the release of their next album, “Millennium” in May 1999. The single “I Want It That Way” had been released earlier that year and had topped the charts in multiple countries, although not in the US. However, that hardly matter for when “Millennium” was released, it went straight to the top of the US charts, selling over a million copies in the first week alone. It went on to become the best selling album of the year with over 9.4 million sold within 6 months and it remained on the charts for 93 weeks. The Boys ended the year by re-negotiating their contract with Jive Records in a deal worth $60 million.

To promote the release of their next album, “Black & Blue”, the Boys undertook a gruelling promotional campaign that saw them travel to Sweden, Japan, Australia, South Africa, Brazil and the US within 100 hours. The strategy worked and the album sold over 5 million copies in its first week, including over 1.6 million copies in the US. They were in esteemed company as the only other group to achieve sales of over a million for back-to-back albums was The Beatles. But despite amazing initial sales, “Black & Blue” never quite enjoyed the success of the band’s previous album and although the first single from the album “Shape of My Heart” made it into the top 5 throughout Europe, the best the group could do in US was number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The group undertook a global tour beginning in January 2001 although all was not well within the group with reports of A.J. McLean checking into rehab to battle multiple addictions. The group rounded off the year by releasing a greatest hits album that, like those before it, sold over a million copies in their home market.

The early part of the first decade of the 21st Century was a period of change and unrest for the band. They split with their management company, The Firm, although Nick Carter elected to remain with the company to manage his solo career. The Boys bought a lawsuit against Zomba Music Group who owned Jive Records for breach of contract, which was only settled when the band agreed to a revised royalty payment schedule for two more albums. The first of these albums, “Never Gone,” released in June 2005 but received less than generous praise from more established music magazines. However, lacklustre reviews did not affect their fan base that sent the album to number 3 on the US charts.

The final change during this time was probably the most traumatic for their fans was June 2006: Kevin Richardson announced he was leaving the band to pursue other interests. The remaining quartet were not held back and headed straight into the studio to record “Unbreakable,” their sixth album released in late 2007. Neither “Unbreakable” or it’s follow-up, “This Is Us” released two years later, matched the band’s earlier heady heights in the US charts although they did do stronger in overseas markets, particularly Japan. In January 2010, the boys released their second greatest hits album, “Playlist: The Very Best of Backstreet Boys” also turned out to be their final album for Jive Records.

Whilst their latter work has not been as commercially successful as their earlier releases, the Backstreet Boys are still popular with their fans, both in the US and overseas. They are one of the hardest working boy bands in the business and have a strong following around the world. Their 2011 supergroup tour with New Kids on the Block promises to offer fans a treat not to be missed.
