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 ...

TMZ clearly doesn't know much about Backstreet Boys' heyday which was pretty much 1996-2000. Majority of their fans are in their 20s early 30s.

and you only saw the line from the left side, you missed the line of the right side :)))....

They are not old yet, they begun the band since Nick Carter had 13 years old !!!. thats why sound 20 years as if they were old but its not like that :))
