Recently, according to MTV News, the Backstreet Boys have announced that they will be going back on tour again as a group.

Personally, I am a huge teeny-bopper at heart and I am all in favor of the group reuniting. As a young teenager, I saw the group in concert several times, each time more exciting than the last. When my friend and fellow groupie heard the news, she was equally ecstatic. However, some valid points were made.

Would they make any money on this tour? Would they be too different that we wouldn’t enjoy their show? Would the performance be worth our while?

When the group went to press about this recent decision, they said that the tour would run from the last week in March to the first week in April. This also made the idea more conceivable, to actually attempt to get tickets, because the day they are in Philadelphia just happens to be March 25, a.k.a. Good Friday.

Because of this opportune chance that it fell on our day off, my friend and I decided that we would risk our $42 and try to snatch up some tickets for the reunion of the Backstreet Boys.

So we prevailed. We decided that we try and get tickets and go to the show. To our dismay, when we went on the Ticketmaster website we found out that the concert was completely sold out.

Whoever would have thought that the Backstreet Boys would sell out their reunion tour within three days of going on sale, maybe sooner than that.

We were so disappointed. If they were expecting, or even just hoping for a large turn out, why would they pick a venue such as the Electric Factory? It is only able to hold approximately 3,000 people. Wouldn’t you think they would at least go to somewhere such as the Liacoura Center at Temple University or the Spectrum?

I don’t know about the rest of the fans out there who couldn’t get tickets but I know that my friend and I will be a couple of the first people waiting to buy their new album and concert ticket once it all hits the market in July.
