Backstreet’s Back – and the 90s pop “boy band” is coming to the Fraze.

The Backstreet Boys will be appearing at Kettering’s Fraze Pavilion on August 9.

It’s hard to believe that 15 years have passed since the Backstreet Boys redefined the modern musical landscape, ushering in a chapter of pop culture that commandeered the world’s radio airwaves, broke music and concert sales records, and launched a new generation of teen idols for millions of youth.

In all, the group has sold more than 75 millions albums worldwide. Their first two U.S. releases both received the Diamond Award for sales of more than 10 million: Backstreet Boys in 1997 and quintessential Millenium in 1999, which reached No. 1 in 25 countries. They have scored a dozen top 40 hits, including top five smashes “Quit Playing Games (with My Heart),” “As Long As You Love Me,” “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” and “All I Have to Give.” A lot has changed since 1997, when the fans first got to know the original five singers.

After returning to the music scene in 2005, their sound changed dramatically, incorporating only live instruments (some of which they play themselves) and a more guitar and piano driven pop rock sound. The four-member group consists of Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, and A. J. McLean.

The Backstreet Boys’ sixth album, Unbreakable, incorporates various music styles, combining their earlier mid-90s R&B sound with their newer guitar driven pop/rock sound. Hits include “Inconsolable,” “Helpless When She Smiles,” “Any Other Way” and “Unmistakable.”

Tickets go on sale April 19. The cost of tickets is $50 for pavilion and orchestra, and $30 for lawn and terrace tickets. There is a limit of four tickets per person on the first dale of sale.
