Spotlight Story: Anywhere For Backstreet

The Backstreet Boys once sang (and still do) that they would go "anywhere for you, anywhere you ask them to" and for the past 26 years, they've been traveling the globe, proving just that. 

But they're not the only ones traveling worldwide. There are thousands of BSB / Nick Carter fans that travel far and wide every year just to attend an event or a series of concerts. Even now, many fans are preparing to travel to multiple cities just to catch the Boys on the DNA World Tour. 

It only seemed appropriate that with tour currently making it's way through North America, that we asked -- what has been your best memory of traveling for Nick or the Backstreet Boys as a group?

We've chosen Claudia as our featured Spotlight Storyteller with her memory of traveling with her mom for the BSB Euro Cruise! 

"I must say that I always plan my vacation in a place where the Backstreet Boys or Nick are going to be performing, and I think my best trip has been the "BSB European Cruise". 

First, I traveled from Mexico to Madrid, I spent a few days there before going to Barcelona for the cruise. I had the best time of my life on that cruise, my mother accompanied me on this trip, it was really special because the cruise took place on May 10 and that day we celebrate mothers' day in Mexico, so it was my gift to her. After the cruise we were visiting a lot of places in Barcelona and then we went to London, it was wonderful, so we had the opportunity to know many amazing places thanks to that trip and the Backstreet Boys. 

It has been the furthest I have gone to see the boys, but I would definitely go anywhere for them. If you ask me, I would say that I never thought that one day I could go so far to see them, it was a dream come true, it was really worth it, it's been a journey that my mom and I continue talking about, it's one of the best memories I have!! 

 The Backstreet Boys have given me the best moments in my life, and I have been in so many beautiful places thanks to them, and now I can't stand my vacations without seeing the boys."

Feel free to drop your own travel memories in the comments below and read other fan stories here.

Check out your next opportunity to be the featured spotlight storyteller as we celebrate 10 years of the Nick Carter fanclub!

    I used to travel to the US from Japan to catch him solo in the early 2000’s. Now I’m based in Singapore and I flew for 24 hours to catch him in the last BSB Cruise. Not a single regret, I’d say!
    Now they’ll be coming to Asia for the next leg of the DNA tour, I am traveling to Macau, Thailand, Indonesia to see 3 additional shows on top of one in Singapore. Already so excited to see him in 2+ months time!!

    Dear Nick,

    First time reaching out, longggg time listener! I am writing to let you know about my serious love for the Backstreet Boys! There’s no better music to me than the perfected harmony’s of BSB. I listen all the time, all the old albums, while at work, cooking dinner, getting ready, you name it, they’ve accompanied me at some point! Before they dropped this new album, while all my friends just giggled and rolled their eyes at me when yet another BSB song comes on my playlists, I get instant joy when I hear them! Now all my girlfriends are back on the BSB Bandwagon since they’ve been dropping new music again. My very first AIM screen name was “LilBSBgurl09” *insert eyeroll emoji here*, but I tell you, there’s no other singer or band in music that I place above them.

    When I heard the news of them creating their DNA album, I immediately knew they would follow it up with a tour, and man oh man when a Detroit date was released, I was so pumped! My dad has always bought my tickets to all their other concerts I’ve attended, including my very first concert EVER, BSB, at the Palace for the Millennium tour, he even got us a suite to make my first time extra special! I’ve even sat third row when they toured with New Kids on the Block a few summers ago. Never understood why some fans cry at concerts, well, I joined in those ranks as they slowly made their way dancing down the stage, building major anticipation, until they were just an arm’s reach away. Felt ALL the emotions that night, and still one of my all time greatest summer nights of my 20’s, ever. My dad of course got me tickets for next Monday, with one condition, my boyfriend has to be my +1. Oh yeah, did I mention, HIS birthday is the day after the concert? In the 2 years of dating and cohabitating, I’ve taken a long time N*sync fan and completely converted him over to Team BSB! You should see his dance moves when they come on at a wedding or something, he’s really gotten down the whole point and fist clutch move!! Clearly this man is the right guy for me, because I know plenty of other men out there that would rather me turn the song when they come on- nope not my guy- he’s a real keeper like that!!

    So I got the email announcement from their website about Meet & Greets a couple weeks ago. I had this huge moment of excitement- like finally, here’s my chance to meet these guys-wrong! Detroit wasn’t an option on the list!! My heart broke into pieces, and chances slipped right out of my fingers, a quick as they came. I am 100% certain the VIP package was not on the original list on the BSB email. Im looking at the website today and NOW Detroit showed on the list!? What the heck!? I would have purchased when I got the email if Detroit was on there, but it wasnt even an option, and now the website says it is but its sold out!? Another MAJOR letdown, that is, until I was hanging out pool side yesterday and heard the announcement of a meet & greet give away by one of the local readio stations! I called my boyfriend and since he’s such an early bird, he has now been assigned to listen to that show all week long! He’s on radio watch while I’m listening on my laptop in the office at work.

    How can I get ahead?! Could you imagine if you were able to do your part in making this girls longtime dream come true!? Seems like you’re my only one true hope!!

    Hopeful & Fondly, JaLyn
