Jeff Spevak of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reviewed the Backstreet Boys concert before a slim crowd of maybe 7,000 people Thursday night at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center. Spevak writes, “It’s a wonder the guys didn’t slip on the testosterone that had to be all over the stage after Saturday’s Clay Aiken show, but the Backstreet Boys are real pros. A full decade into their careers, A.J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson and Nick Carter – who sometimes treat singing in tune as though it were optional – are actually quite charming.”
