Backstreet Boys Join Line-Up At iHeartRadio's Wango Tango
iHeartRadio’s 2018 Wango Tango is officially going to be ‘Larger Than Life’ with the Backstreet Boys joining the already incredible lineup of superstars!
On June 2nd, the ‘90s boyband will share the stage with the previously announced 2018 iHeartRadio KIIS FM Wango Tango lineup of artists including Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Meghan Trainor, 5 Seconds of Summer, NF, Miguel, Sabrina Carpenter, Janelle Monáe, and Marshmello with a special guest performance by Logic, and more to be announced.
This will be the Backstreet Boys fourth time performing at Wango Tango (they previously performed in 2001, 2004, 2005 and 2017). “We have a residency now at Wango Tango,” Nick Carter told Wango Tango host Ryan Seacrest. “We cannot wait to be a part of this.”
“It’s kind of scaring me,” Nick joked. “We just celebrated our 25th anniversary… and now I’m sitting back going, ‘Oh my god!’ But I’m only 38-years-old so still the youngest guy in the group so I’m happy about that. But it’s incredible, it’s 2018 and the Backstreet Boys are still here doing music and getting ready to release the new single about a week from now.”
Carter also confirmed that the group will be performing their new single during their Wango Tango set! “Yes, we will be performing our new single. We can’t wait to rip up that stage.”
The event will kick off on June 2nd at the all-new Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, and broadcast live via iHeartMedia radio stations.
