Back for More

By washingtonpost.com

In the latest installment of a band that apparently didn't get the message the first time, the Backstreet Boys have decided that they will grace us with a reunion tour. Tickets go on sale Saturday at noon on tickets.com for the BB's show at the 9:30 on March 30. Even at $55 a ticket, this show is sure to sell out in minutes. After all, the 9:30 is only a 1,000-person venue and for a group that sold-out stadiums in its prime, it had better still be able to sell-out a relatively small club. Other than the camp factor though, just what is the point of this show? I can't imagine the 12-year-old girls who went to see them in their heyday are really jonesing to relive those wonder years. Maybe they're doing the shows just to fill the needs of the smug hipsters who need their monthly dose of irony. But the BB were fluff the first time around and that just makes them old fluff this time. I don't like it like that at all.

I'd so go but I'd never admit to it. Never I say! ;-)

Now it's out to be a hipster? Better stop pimping Wonderland and (what was) Kingpin then. Nice job writing a coming event report that's as much about the author as the coming event!

Seriously, we're very happy to learn that you think the BB stink. Why waste time discussing the point? You don't cover 1/2 of the great shows that come through the area. Why waste time panning shows that your core constituency wasn't even planning on going to?
