Concert Review: Backstreet Boys Revive Nostalgic Hits In Singapore

By  October 23, 2017

It’s not everyday that you get to experience flashbacks of your childhood together with 20,000 people in a stadium, all screaming in unison for the best-selling boy band in history.

But the 21st of October proved to be an evening filled with nostalgia as the Backstreet Boys (BSB) played a one-night show in Singapore.

Camouflaging amongst a crowd of fangirls in their 30s and 40s, I found myself unconsciously joining their piercing squeals as AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, and Brian Littrell opened with the banging hit, Larger Than Life.

“Somebody should’ve warned the Backstreet Boys that it was this hot here in Singapore. We are sweating up here!” Carter exclaimed succeeding the first few numbers, which were already filled with their much-anticipated synchronized dance choreography that boy bands nowadays are devoid of.

The youngest member of the band then showed his expertise in triggering immediate screams from the audience, “But you guys like to see the Backstreet Boys sweat, don’t you?”

It was an evening not deprived of audience interaction, but also pseudo-karaoke sessions with performances of songs like Drowning, Quit Playing Games (With My Heart), and As Long As You Love Me – all reminiscent of everyone’s innocent days.

Jam-packed with astounding visuals comprising of blinding laser lights and pyrotechnics, BSB delighted us with their flawless harmonies accompanied by matching sequined suits that undoubtedly made every performance more “swoon-worthy.” These are all in addition to their signature boy band pose that concluded every song.

Being the only stop in Asia, you would expect the rest of the Singapore crowd to at least reverberate the same energy as fans in the floor section. But to my disappointment, it seemed like the band’s energy only reached the first half of the stadium, leaving barely a handful of people on their feet at the grandstand.

Perhaps it was the distance from the stage that explains the lack of enthusiasm or the tiny screens that the rest of us were left with. But the sight of a minuscule Kevin Richardson aggressively headbanging during Get Down was enough for me.

Finally unable to contain themselves, the rest of the crowd got up for the fan-favorite I Want It That Way and the encore Everybody (Backstreet’s Back) that manifested the band’s undying fervor.

Swooning over cheesy love songs was cathartic in itself, but being serenaded by one of the world’s most popular boy bands made the moment even more special.

It might have been almost 25 years since BSB formed, but the quintet’s nostalgic hits are definitely going to be repeatedly played by generations of fangirls for a long time.
