Backstreet Boys concert chronology

The Backstreet Boys' Unbreakable Tour was a 2008–2009 concert tour. This was the first Backstreet Boys tour without Kevin Richardson.[1] He did, however, join his band again at the end of the tour in Los Angeles.[2] The tour kicked off in Japan with two sold out concerts in the Tokyo Dome.

The show at London's O2 Arena on the May 14, 2008 was recorded. It was first shown in MSN "Music in Concert" at 2:00 PM ET/11:00AM PT on June 26, 2008.[3] It was also later shown on VH1 in the UK on October 31, 2008 at 9pm. However, all solo songs were cut from the aired program, showing only the songs performed by them as a group.

Background[edit]

The group is making the tour more like the one's they put on during the start of their career with more dancing than their previous tour. An interesting aspect of this tour is that each member will perform a solo number during the concert. The group is also going back to more of a matching and set wardrobe.

The group planned to make it a true world tour, hitting countries that they had not visited in years, along with visiting new countries, including their first stop ever on tour in Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Peru, along with South Africa dates. The Luxembourg date was suspended after a fire broke out at the venue the afternoon of the performance, no one was seriously injured, but there was damage to the group's wardrobe.[4]
