Following in the footsteps of popular single-instrument showcases like Banj-O-Rama, Accordi-O-Rama and Zing Go the Strings comes the inaugural Harp-O-Rama. This pan-cultural concert features legendary Celtic harpist Máire Ni Chathasaigh (who has been called “the greatest Celtic harper of our age”) and her partner, guitarist Chris Newman. They’ll perform alongside the likes of Brooklyn kora player Kane Mathis and Correo Aereo, featuring Abel Rocha and Madeleine Sosin playing traditional harp styles of Venezuela, Mexico and original compositions. Adding to the whimsy will be interstitial video performances by Harpo Marx -- yes, that Harpo Marx, who was not only a film star but also an extraordinary classical harpist -- and the namesake of this event.

This concert was a wonderful walk down memory lane. The stage was not as spectacular as it has been in their past concerts, but the concert was well constructed with great video interludes. BSB has aged well and are still great performers and dancers.

The Backstreet Boys are excited to announce a North American headlining tour coming to ShoWare Center. The tour comes in support of their album, This Is Us, the seventh studio album from the groundbreaking and chart topping group that redefined the modern musical landscape, ushering in a chapter of pop culture that commandeered the world’s radio airwaves and broke music and concert sales records globally.
It’s hard to believe that 18 years have passed since Backstreet Boys hit the scene. Their first two U.S. releases both received the Diamond Award for sales of more than 10 million: Backstreet Boys in 1997 and quintessential Millennium in 1999, which reached No. 1 in 25 countries. They have scored a dozen top 40 hits, including top 5 smashes “Quit Playing Games (with My Heart),” “As Long As You Love Me,” Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” and “All I Have To Give.”
A lot has changed since the band debuted. Today, like their fans, they have grown up and started families, recorded solo projects, and appeared on the Broadway stage, all while dealing with the trials and tribulations that accompany fame at an early age, including substance abuse, management snafus and even major health issues.
“To still be around feels amazing,” says Howie Dorough. “So many artists, boy bands and rappers that started when we did have disbanded.” Adds Brian Littrell, “The pop bands of yesteryear that don’t exist anymore were centered around one or two central vocalists. What has allowed us to keep going is that we were always a team of well-rounded singers, with a similar vision. We love the fact that we can still lift people’s spirits and make them smile with songs they can sing along to.”
And, notes AJ McLean, “We’ve been part of this group for half our lives—it’s crazy to think about. If you asked me in 1992 if I’d still be a Backstreet Boy in 2010, I’d have thought we’ll make some records together and have a good little run. But we continue because we love what we do. We thrive being onstage and seeing the faces of little girls and boys and couples and grandmothers, all cutting a jig in the front row.”
