Central Park had some major fandemonium going on this morning (July 13), as the Backstreet Boys took over for the Good Morning America Summer Concert Series.
The beloved boy band drew the show's biggest 2018 summer crowd yet, with fans of all ages coming out to Rumsey Playfield donning all sorts of BSB memorabilia. One fan even wore her wedding dress in hopes of getting Brian Littrell's attention. “Brian will you marry me?” her heart-shaped sign read on one side. The other? “My husband will understand.”
After kicking things off with “Everybody (Backstreet's Back),” the guys chatted with GMA's Robin Roberts about their new single, “Don't Go Breakin My Heart,” which they all agreed is their favorite song to perform live. “It's always nice to have some new music that resonates that people like, they're enjoying it,” Kevin Richardson said. “And you get to perform it live in front of a crowd like this — we love it.”
They also discussed their Larger Than Life Las Vegas residency, which they just announced will be coming to an end in April 2019. While some fans may be bummed about the news, AJ McLean reminded them of the wild ride BSB has had in Sin City: ”What was supposed to be 9 shows is now going to be like 90 shows.”
The Backstreet Boys continued their GMA performance with “Don't Go Breakin' My Heart” followed by their biggest hit (and Streets Talkin boy band favorite), “I Want It That Way.” But once cameras stopped rolling, the guys gave a little reward for those fans who got up bright and early to pack into Central Park by performing “As Long As You Love Me” — chair routine and all — and “Larger Than Life.”
Tickets for BSB's final Vegas shows will be available at 10 a.m. PT today on Ticketmaster. Watch clips of their GMA performance below.
