Backstreet Boys Performing on February 25 in Lima, Peru

leave a comment »

As El Comercio reports, the Backstreet Boys announced they will be performing on February 25, 2009 in Lima, Peru to promote their latest album “Unbreakable” as part of their South American tour. The concert is scheduled to start at 8:00 pm local time at the Estadio Monumental (Monumental Stadium).

The four members of the band — Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and AJ McLean — will also be making a stop in Argentina, Venezuela, Chile and Brazil as part of their South American tour.

If you are a BSB fan, you might have heard about Brian Littrell’s son recently diagnosis with A-Typical Kawasaki Syndrome, a disease that causes swollen blood vessels and can result in aneurisms and cardiac arrest, as ABC News reported on December 23. This could be a good opportunity to support the singer in this tough personal journey.

Tickets for their South American “Unbreakable” tour are available via their website by clicking here.

leave a comment »

Cindy Lauper just finished her stop by Lima, Peru presenting her “Bring Ya to Brink” South American tour. Today Saturday Nov 29 she will be in Venezuela. Other countries her tour includes are Chile and Argentina. More than 6,000 fans convened at the National Stadium (Estadio Nacional) in Lima where she performed her 80’s hits “Time after Time” and “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”, as the newspaper El Comercio reports.

LivinginPeru.com includes a brief press statement by Lauper:

“I’m tired, but happy. People have been telling me about Machu Picchu but I won’t be able to go. I’ve also been told about Peruvian food and I’m going to try it.”

Hopefully on her way to the airport she got some chicken from Pardo’s, and a good pisco sour…at least!
