Backstreet Boys

Fans Still Lining Up

AROUND THE BLOCK

Everybody, Backstreet's back ... like it's the year 2000 ... because this weekend, hordes of fans lined up around the block outside an L.A. theater just to catch a glimpse of the iconic boy band.

Sure, they were probably mostly women aged 30-40 ... but it still counts.

FYI, the Backstreet Boys were celebrating their 20th anniversary (yes, you're old) at the Fonda Theatre in Hollywood Saturday ... and fans were invited to attend for free ... which explains the shockingly huge line.

Fans were also invited to take photos with the band, but that privilege cost $150.

Impressive, but it's still nothing like the old days ...

The BS Boys whole career is not worth a quark of a molecule off of a Sinatra or Elvis corpse ball sack.

Watching their audience is just plain creepy. A bunch of 35-45 year old women acting like 16 year olds. Weird.

"Sure, they were probably mostly women aged 30-40"

Because as we all know, people only matter up until the age of 25!

Good for BSB, but if it was for the best boy band NKOTB, there wouldn't be BSB, Nysnc, 98 Degrees and the rest of them..
