Backstreet Boys mark a quarter-century: “Who’s ready for another 25 years?”

Denise TruscelloCan they still call themselves boys? The Backstreet Boys celebrate their 25th anniversary today.

“On April 20th, 1993 we became the Backstreet Boys,” the band tweeted. “If you would have told us that 25 years later we would still be making music together, we would have never believed you.”

They added, “Thank you #BSBArmy Who’s ready for another 25 years?”

Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean, and Kevin Richardson are currently playing shows in Dubai before heading back to Las Vegas for more of their Larger Than Life residency shows in the summer.  They’re also working on a new album.

The Backstreet Boys are the top-selling boy band in history, with 130 million records sold worldwide.

Meanwhile, rival boy band *NSYNC celebrated the 20th anniversary of their debut album last month.
