    The Backstreet Boys on stage in Hong Kong

    The Backstreet Boys have performed their first concert in Hong Kong at the AsiaWorld-Expo.

    The show, part of the American pop quartet's 2008Unbreakable World Tour, follows the release of their sixth album Unbreakable last October.
    It is the group's first concert in Hong Kong. The four members Nick
    Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and AJ McLean talked at a press
    conference before the opening of the show:
    "I think hopefully we grew as individuals, we grew tighter as a
    group. We obviously got older, mature in away that only we really could
    have shared all these memories together. And I think look back on the
    past and everything happened with a reason, we're here today, you know
    because it's just meant to be. I think we would continue to get
    stronger hopefully, we have another 15 years together, but you know we
    always want it to be better musically, emotionally, physically. Touring
    get us back in shape and make us more ambitious, give us a drive, see
    our fans faces, make us stay out, tour forever." Brian Littrell told
    journalist before the concert
    The band has been away from the limelight for a long time, but they
    did not officially break up explained AJ McLean: "A lot of people in
    between Black And Blue and Never Gone thought we've
    broken up, thought we were done and we never really broke up, we've
    just taken a break, we had toured for nine years straight. And we had
    not taken a break, we probably going cuckoo, and probably wouldn't be
    here right now. So but I think the comradely, the honesty, the
    dedication we want to do this as well as having the best fans all over
    the world that keep us doing what we want to do that's why we are still
    in here. And it works down to music. We love doing music, we love
    making record for ourselves, for our fans. "
    Their first two albums Backstreet Boys and Millennium
    released in 1997 and 1999, both sold more than 10 million copies and
    top the chart in 25 countries. To date they have released 6 studio
    albums and have sold over 75 million copies worldwide.
    The boy band, now with Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, A.J. McLean
    and Nick Carter, has already performed in Malaysia, Australia, the
    Philippines and Indonesia. They will go on to perform in Tokyo, Seoul
    and Hangzhou, capital of east China's Zhejiang Province on March 4.
