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.

The long-awaited confirmation of Iron Maiden stopping by Peru as part of their Latin American tour is finally here! If you are a fan, they will be at the National Stadium (Estadio Nacional) on March 26.

According to an article from Peru’s largest print publication El Comercio, the show will be similar to those the band does in Europe, including 5 Eddies (the group’s pet), fireworks, and 12 tons of equipment they will bring in the Ed Force One, the plane that will be flown by Bruce Dickinson himself.
