LOS ANGELES (March 6, 2019) — The Backstreet Boys have proven to be one of the most successful groups in music history during their nearly three decade career, making them one of pop's most influential performers. To celebrate the group’s career, the GRAMMY Museum® proudly presents Backstreet Boys: The Experience, a one-of-a-kind fan experience that opens to the public on Wednesday, April 10 and runs until Sept. 2, 2019.
Backstreet Boys: The Experience captures the spirit of the Backstreet Boys through authentic personal memorabilia, wardrobe, artwork and photography. It will also feature immersive photo and video interactive experiences that will allow their legion of fans to engage with the group’s music and history like never before, including a fan confessional booth that will allow fans to record a message directly to the group.
“From the beginning of our career, we have always made it a priority to interact with our fans,” says AJ McLean. “This exhibition is a perfect way to share our favorite memories with the people who made our dreams a reality.”
"The Backstreet Boys re-defined pop music as we know it creating a dedicated fan phenomenon that still exists almost 30 years later," says the Museum's Executive Director Michael Sticka. "We're thrilled to celebrate the group's unique commitment to their fans and vice versa while producing a one-of-a-kind immersive interactive environment."
On April 8, Backstreet Boys will take part in the Museum's intimate Public Program series, where they will share never before heard stories from the past 25 years. JoJo Wright from KIIS-FM will be moderating the Program taking place at the Museum's Clive Davis Theater, and PEOPLE will exclusively live stream the event on Facebook.”.
