The Friday Five: Backstreet Boys’ Best Videos

This weekend marks the official start of summer, which means concert season is in full swing!  And we’re seeing the Backstreet Boys on Sunday!  It’s hard to believe BSB have been together for 21 years now, and after all this time they’re still going strong.  And they’re one of the few bands that have never let us down over the years.  We love that they brought back their original music video choreography for tour.  In honor of the In a World Like This Tour, here are our five favorite BSB videos!  (It was extremely hard to not make this a Friday Ten…)

1.  “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)”
This is probably the most iconic boy band video of ALL TIME.  Why are they monsters?  Nobody knows.  But seriously, you haven’t lived until you’ve seen Backstreet Boys perform “Everybody” live, with the entire crowd doing the choreography.   And have you caught the ending of “This Is The End?”  Apparently in heaven everyone knows the “Everybody” dance.

2. “Larger Than Life”
Budgets for music videos were much bigger in the 90s, like in this video when BSB went to outer space.   AJ is also probably the only man on earth who can pull off a mesh cropped top.  (He’s got the abs for it!)   We’re still not sure why they always insist on keeping Nick so under wraps in these videos (first he’s a mummy, now a robot?)

3. “I Want It That Way”
The video has over 98 million views on YouTube for a reason. Another iconic boy band video, which has been spoofed by Blink-182 and paid homage to by Big Time Rush.   We still get chills every time we hear Nick sing The Note.  (You know the one).   And that sad fangirl wave to Brian at the end?  We totally know your pain.

4. “Quit Playing Games With My Heart”
Otherwise known as that video where it starts raining and they dance around and get  their button down shirts and baggy pants soaking wet for no reason.   Howie D just totally takes it off.  Poor Brian had to keep his shirt buttoned because of his scar from heart surgery!  We are full of important 90s trivia facts like this, which we probably learned from TRL, Making the Video or Popup Video.

5. “As Long As You Love Me”
The CHAIR DANCE!  One of our fondest memories of middle school is when all the boys in our class blasted this song from their walkman, and attempted to recreate this chair dance during homeroom.  The key word being attempted.

Bonus. “We’ve Got It Goin’ On”
This might be the best song to dance to, ever.   And their wardrobe is on point.  Layered denim and leather?  Check.  This is also the song with the prayer dance.

Just do yourself a favor and head to the Backstreet Boys Vevo page and hit play all, it’s Friday.   We’ll be rehearsing our choreography for Sunday’s show.

The Friday Five: Summer Tours That We Are Super Excited For

1. Hunter Hayes – “We Are Not Invisible Tour” feat. Dan+Shay, and Danielle Bradbery
It’s no secret that we are completely obsessed with Hunter Hayes (and Dan+Shay for that matter) but this tour tops this week’s Friday Five. Even better, Hunter is trying to set a world record for most concerts played in 24 hours AND it’s all in the country music deprived Northeast!! Click HERE for dates and ticket info.

2. Backstreet Boys – “In A World Like This Tour”
This morning, BSB announced they will be touring North America with Avril Lavigne. We are totally hyped on that lineup because who didn’t love “Sk8r Boi” the first time around?!  Click HERE for dates and ticket info and visit BackstreetBoys.com for VIP packages, upgrades, and fan club pre-sales.

3. 5SOS – “Stars Stripes and Maple Syrup Tour” feat. Jackson Guthy
Aussie band 5 Seconds Of Summer announced their highly anticipated North American tour and it sold out in minutes and tickets keep popping up for $300 on StubHub for the shows! They don’t even have an album out yet and already selling out concerts? That’s crazy. For ticket info and all of the dates, click HERE!

4. Bruno Mars – “Moonshine Jungle Tour 2014”
We all love “The Lazy Song” and “When I Was Your Man”, and who DIDN’T love his halftime performance!?? Don’t miss your chance to have Bruno croon his way into your heart forever on his upcoming summer tour! Get all of the dates and ticket info HERE.

5. Goo Goo Dolls Summer Tour feat. Daughtry and The Plain White T’s
In keeping with the 90s-00s nostalgia, the Goo Goo Dolls decided to go on another summer tour! This time they’re bringing Daughtry out with them. (we tried to sing one of their songs but it turns out we kept singing Nickleback….hey! kinda the same thing, right?) Click HERE for all of the dates and for ticket information.

Backstreet Boys Announce Summer 2014 North American Tour on GMA

We’re so glad we made the switch from The Today Show to Good Morning America recently – GMA seems to get all of the important fangirl announcements.  Like this morning, when Backstreet Boys revealed they will be heading back out on a North American tour this summer!   We were getting majorly concerned that it was already March and we had no boyband tours to look forward to this year (We even made a list of forgotten bands who could reunite) so we are so excited that Backstreet’s Back in 2014!  This will be their second North American tour since Kevin Richardson rejoined the group last year, just in time for BSB’s 20th Anniversary.   Avril Lavigne will be joining the tour as well, so get ready for a night of early 2000s nostalgia.

Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, March 21st 2014 at 10am local time.  Be sure to visit BackstreetBoys.com for info about fan club pre-sales, VIP packages, upgrades and after parties!
