Time flies when you are world-wide super-stars like the Backstreet Boys, with 26-years of success under your belt, and still delivering radio-ready hits: their “No Place” is currently top 25 on the Adult Top 40 radio chart.
“No Place” is a warm and gooey song, as is the video… a happy man singing about his happy home and family life, and even though it’s a pop song through and through, there is a Country undercurrent and flavor which runs through the melody that is kin to Bobby Bare’s 1963 “Detroit City;” both songs value home, one is upbeat, filled with gratitude, and the other sad, filled with longing.
The band wrapped their Planet Hollywood/Las Vegas residency and are kicking off their world tour this weekend, in Portugal. In several markets, fans fought for tickets to the sold out shows.
Earlier last month, “Backstreet Boys The Experience” debuted at The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, featuring memorabilia and an interactive 3-D mini-hologram of the group. The exhibit ends September 2nd.
