The Backstreet Boys, who have sold more than 130 million albums worldwide, the most for a boy band, will receive the 2,495th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame April 22nd in connection with their 20th anniversary.
The star will be in front of the Live Nation Building at 7072 Hollywood Blvd., next to the star of another popular boy band Boyz II Men, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which administers the Walk of Fame, announced today.
Max Martin, who has produced and written some of the Backstreet Boys’ works, plus a special fan of the group will speak at the ceremony, according to Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies.
The ceremony will be streamed at walkoffame.com beginning at 11:30 a.m.
The ceremony will come two days after a fan celebration at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Hollywood.
The band — A.J. McLean, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, Kevin Richardson and Nick Carter — was formed in 1993 and released their self-titled first album in 1996, which received diamond certification from the Recording Industry Association of America. [Source]
