[ NKOTBSB ] NKOTBSB interview: ‘One Direction need good songs for success’

With boybands fully re-instated in the pop charts, it’s never been a better time to take a trip down memory lane and remind yourself where it all began.

Following their highly successful North American tour last year, pop group pioneers New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys will offer UK fans the chance to catch their classic back catalogue of nostalgic ’80s and ’90s pop anthems.

Digital Spy caught up with NKOTB’s Joey McIntyre and BSB’s Howie Dorough to chat about the new generation of boybands, plans for future albums and whether they’d be up for a guest spot in Glee.

Congratulations on the success of the North American tour last year – how have you found the merge?
Joey: “It’s been great, we’ve hit it off pretty much from the get go and we get along great and that makes it all worthwhile. But then on the professional side we just wanted to make a great show and the two groups feed off of each other. It comes from a pure entertainment perspective. It’s fun to rock and to listen to music, but it’s much more interactive.”
