BACKSTREET BOYS star A.J. McLEAN is set to take a break from the ageing boyband
for a series of solo shows.
The edgy pop star has just released tickets for two low-key concerts in
California on Sunday (23Mar08) and Monday (24Mar08).
A statement from McLean’s manager, Eric Podwall, reads, “After 13 years with
the Backstreet Boys, and 75 million records sold worldwide, A.J.’s excited to
take a step out on his own and present his music, in his style.”
McLean is also planning shows in Europe to preview a solo album he hopes to
release later this year (08).
But Backstreet Boys fans need not fret as McLean has no plans to follow
ex-bandmate Kevin Richardson and quit the group for good – he’s planning to
record another album with the group next year (09).
