Backstreet Boys Announce GMA Reunion Concert
The Backstreet Boys have announced today that all five members of the group will reunite for a performance on ABC's GOOD MORNING AMERICA as part of the morning show's Summer Concert Series on August 31. Kevin Richardson, who left the band in 2006, announced three months ago that he will officially return as a band member.
The Backstreet Boys are currently working on an album which is scheduled to be released next spring. They will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles this summer.
