NKOTBSB London Concert to Hit Theaters
Fans who can't make it to the big NKOTBSB concert at London's O2 arena later this month will have a chance to witness the show live throughout theaters across Europe. The Backstreet Boys announced the arrangement in a post on their website.
BSB's Howie D said in the release, "It's so exciting to know that even though we weren't able to bring our show to certain places in Europe, our fans will still have the opportunity to experience it like they were there. We can't wait for everyone to see the show!”
The April 29 concert will utilize HD cameras and surround sound to give theater attendees the most realistic experience possible. Frank Volpe, coordinator of the unique cinema, said his goal is to "highlight this groundbreaking development as a route all bands and artists will have the opportunity to embrace in the next 10 years.”
For now, it looks as though the concert will only appear in European theaters. Theater tickets are available at www.myscreenevent.com/NKOTBSB. The members of the Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block toured together for three months last summer and will begin a month-long European tour on April 20. The joint album 'NKOTBSB' entered the U.S. charts at No. 7 last year.
