Backstreet Boys Work on Solo Records

Published: 2008-07-28
Just before the start of the North American leg of their Unbreakable tour a couple of the Backstreet Boys are working on solo projects. A.J. McLean is nearly finished with his first solo effort, in fact he has already begun touring behind the new material doing a few club dates in Europe and North America in tandem with the Backstreet Boys tour. Howie Dorough is exploring his Latin roots on his upcoming solo release working with Jon Secada and George Noriega. Neither record has a release date as of yet.

The other two Backstreet Boys have already tested the solo waters, Nick Carter released his pop rock solo record, Now or Never in 2003 while Brian Littrell released the contemporary Christian record Welcome Home in 2006.

Though the boys are branching out there is no break up in the works, in fact the quartet already began recording new material while they were touring in Europe earlier this year and they plan to hit the studio again once this leg of the tour has wrapped up. Their upcoming North American tour is made up of nearly half Canadian and half American dates. Here are the details of the shows on this side of the border:
