AJ of “Backstreet Boys” hooked on his phone

Tokyo Midtown in Roppongi, Tokyo. A foreign man in a cap and sunglasses is sitting in the circle of the “Myomu” sculpture located in the center of the plaza, fiddling with his smartphone. He is AJ McLean, 45, of the Backstreet Boys (BSB).

BSB is a five-member group based in Florida, U.S.A., formed in 1993, and in 1999, their album “Millennium” became their first No. 1 album in the U.S., and it also reached No. 1 on the annual charts. Their albums have sold more than 140 million copies worldwide.

In Japan, “I Want It That Way,” released in 1999, reached No. 1 on the Western music charts. They have performed in Japan a total of six times, including three dome tours, and since their Tokyo concert was canceled in 2019 due to a major typhoon, this is their first concert in the Kanto area in 10 years” (music magazine editor).

The “DNA World Tour” took place over three days in February at the Ariake Arena in Tokyo, attracting a total audience of about 30,000 people, with AJ performing on the 15th.

Arigatoo gozaimasu, tokyo, seiyuu tomorrow,” he concluded.

AJ was spotted by a fan. Fans spotted AJ in the early afternoon of the last day of the concert, perhaps enjoying some shopping at Tokyo Midtown, with a huge paper bag with the NIKE logo on it next to him. Around him were three strong men dressed all in black, looking like bodyguards, keeping a close eye on him. Then, a man approached. He seemed to be a fan of AJ’s, but when he tried to talk to him, the bodyguards strongly stopped him and said, “No! When he tried to talk to them, his bodyguards strongly stopped him. AJ was so absorbed in his phone that he didn’t even notice the situation.

AJ is known as a kind-hearted person who is involved in various charitable activities, including the establishment of a foundation for music charities. (Editor)

BSB finished the final performance of the night without incident, and we can hardly wait for their next visit to Japan.
