Backstreet Boys

Praying For Both Sides and Vowing

To Return to Middle East

7/30/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

AJ McLean Backstreet Boys Cancelled ConcertsThe Backstreet Boys love their fans in Israel, but they love their families more -- which is why they regretfully cancelled a bunch of concerts there, according to A.J. McLean ... who's standing firm on NOT choosing a side in the conflict.

We saw McLean in Malibu Tuesday and he explained that if the cease fires had held, BSB might have gone through with what would've been their first shows ever in Israel this week. 

A.J. reveals when they're planning to reschedule, and adds he's praying for both sides, because ... "You can't pick a side." 

Not all boy banders agree with A.J. on that.

I wish everyone was this intelligent. Both sides are murderers and civilians are dying due to violence from both countries. Just because one death toll is higher doesnt make it deserved. Idiots. Love AJ <3 A celebrity with a brain

The middle east is probably the only place these morons can actually sell tickets to a show

I mean, yeah, it's a hard choice. Terrorists, or the only democracy in the Middle East who is our decades long ally. That's a tough one. Especially for a vapid himbo.

If I was pushing 40 or over it I would be super conscious about referring to myself as a "boy"

ok, how old are these guys now? late 30's
they definitely need the money because if they had any self respect, they'd be better off cleaning toilets with their tongues for a living than still doing this crap!

Of course you can pick a side, dummy. What kind of an idiot won't condemn Hamas? That's like saying you don't know if you can condemn Hitler!
