The Backstreet Boys, one of the world’s most popular boy bands, drew a massive crowd of fans at Jio Gardens, BKC, on Thursday evening for their DNA World Tour 2023. Thousands of fans turned up to listen to their favourite boy band, singing and dancing along to their hit numbers.
The band started the nearly two-hour gig with the hit song “I Wanna Be With You,” and the crowd went into a frenzy, singing along to hit after hit, including “The Call” and “Don’t Want You Back.”
Brian Littrell greeted the fans with a traditional “Namaste Mumbai” and tried to interact with the audience in Hindi. He even pulled out a paper and quipped, “Kaise hain aap,” and concluded that Namaste was the best.
Formed in Florida in 1993, the Backstreet Boys rose to fame with their debut album, “Backstreet Boys.” The band consists of Nick Carter, AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, and cousins Brian Littrell and Kevin Richardson.
The group arrived in India on Wednesday, thirteen years after their last visit, for the DNA World Tour 2023, produced by Book My Show. After their gig in Mumbai, the Backstreet Boys will be performing in Delhi on May 5.
