Is this the end of the Backstreet Boys?! While we totally love that Nick Carter said a joint tour with the Spice Girls is a definite possibility during an interview on Oct. 9, we didn’t like that he said if it happened, it’d be the band’s ‘last hurrah.’ Watch the video here!
This is so bittersweet. Nick Carter responded to those rumors surrounding a possible joint tour with the Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls on Oct. 9, and while he got us excited, saying it’s a “cool idea” that he’s interested in, he also said he thinks it would be the band’s “last hurrah.” Say what?!
“I actually did a little Twitter shout-out to Mel B because we’re friends and I said, ‘Hey this could be a cool idea. What if we did a Backstreet Boys-Spice Girls tour?'” Nick told E! News. “And there were talks in the past about it and we had done the New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys tour in the past. I think this would be that last hurrah — the two big groups from the late ‘90s. Maybe do a world tour, stadiums, stuff like that and do a package together. It’s just an idea.”
We LOVE the idea of a joint tour, but we’re not thrilled about the Backstreet Boys retiring. That’s so not cool! But as far as the tour is concerned, most of the other guys seem on board with the idea, too.
AJ McLean recently told Rolling Stone magazine that BSB has been toying with the idea of touring with Spice Girls for a while. “The Spice Girls tour has been this idea bouncing around for the past year and a half, and it’s something we’re still talking about,” he said. Furthermore, in March 2014, Brian Littrell allegedly told The Sun that the band is in “early talks” to do a world tour with Spice Girls.
It sounds like this might actually happen! We’re so pumped.
