So, you want to know what the Backstreet Boys are made of? They’ll tell you yourself. At the end of January or February, in your local movie theatre.
To be honest: Timing couldn’t be more perfect for this documentary about the band. It (as we have to believe the scarce information about it out there) takes us from on a trip down memory lane to their last tour, and everything that happened in between. Obviously I heard a lot about these stories and their development from their fans. If I were to tell this story (and someday I will shoot this documentary or write a book), I could easily fill a documentary about their loyal fans who stuck with them trough all these years… So I’m super curious to see the band’s story, but also the fans’ reactions: and for those of you reading along here, what do you expect from it?
I expect a lot of drama, but I hope to find out more about some of their choices & perception: how do they feel they have emerged into a man band? ‘We’re all older now, so much has happened’.. I think Kevin (or Aj?) says this, which sounds promising. Or as Brian says at the beginning of the movie’s trailer: What do you do as a full-grown man in a boy band?
Then, I want to know: What do they think of their fans who continue to be committed to them? Who also grew up from teens to full-grown women and men and still appreciate that boy band. I hope the documentary will reveal a little about this, otherwise there’s already a few reasons to create a second movie (ego: based on my study of course!)!
And if anyone has tips on how to reach out to the guys, let me know, I would love to tell them more about how their fans experienced these 20 years!
