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 ...

Aww. I remember the bsb days. When they called us "teeny boppers". Those were some really good days. MTV was still about music. Spring break was still broadcasted with music. It was the bsb, nsync, britney, Christina, eminem, kid rock, limp bizket, linkin park fun days. I loved my childhood!

I take it Max wrote this -- like 30 to 40 is old? What is his problem lately?

Nice to see you believe women as old as 30 to 40 "still count" TMZ, but sorry - you're all in time out and should report for sensitivity training ASAP.

You too, Harvey. Get your walker in gear and go set your depends-covered tushie over in the corner.

oh the good days of the early 2000s!! How I miss my childhood - Britney Spears (pre-meltdown), Backstreet boys, 98 Degrees, Blink 182, Green Day (before they got all politcal) MTV was still playing music, no one had ever heard of Kim Kardashian. Glorious days...

For folks who think Hollyweird is all glamor, The Fonda Theater aka The Music Box has hosted porno parties and is also a late night bum's nest that reeks of the stench of urine. Right across the street near Bronson is the Museum of Death. This part of East Hollywood is starting to look like a set out of the sci-fi movie, Blade Runner. For the Backstreet Boys to play there is a jump the shark joke. If Fonda were alive today, he'd have the dump leveled.

Tell me they aren't charging $150 for pictures. Talk about ripping off their fans. I wouldn't pay that kind of money to have my picture taken with the Queen of England.

It amazes me how untalented you have to be to be famous anymore. Gone are the days when famous people had true talent
