Backstreet's Back.. Dubai!

Last night was EPIC! It was a DREAM COME TRUE!

I got to see my favorite band of all time...Backstreet Boys...perform live in concert in Dubai!
What made it even more special was that last night was their 25th anniversary as a band!

Ever since I was really young, the first music video I remember seeing was Get Down...and since then, I have been a huge fan of Backstreet Boys...My room was decorated from floor to ceiling with BSB posters, I had every album ever released (still do), I had a necklace with letters that spelled 'Backstreet Boys', T-shirts...you name it, I had it.

I even once dreamt that they came to my birthday party.... this will have to remain a dream though...(sigh)

I never thought I would be lucky enough to see my favorite band perform live in concert...

On Feb 19th I was in the tram on my way home...scrolling down Facebook as I usually do...I came across a post that said "Backstreet Boys Live in Dubai"...I had to read that several times to make sure I wasn't hallucinating. The inner teenager in me started screaming...I was trying my best not to scream in the middle of the tram. I couldn't wait until I got home to buy my ticket. That seemed like to longest tram ride of my life...

Fast forward to last night...April 20th, 2018...

The doors to the music festival opened at 4pm...I was there standing in line hoping to catch a spot by the stage. Backstreet Boys were performing at 9:30pm...with 4 opening acts that included Lemar and Melanie C from Spice Girls. I made sure not to drink anything to avoid needing to use the restroom and lose my spot.

Luckily, the venue was somewhat empty...most of the people were coming in late to see the main show...so I found a spot right next to the stage...the only thing separating me from the stage was a metal barricade. Time flew by so quickly...all of a sudden it was 9:30pm and BSB were coming on stage...

The concert started...I was sining along loudly to every song...the guys were standing right in front of me up on stage...at one point, both AJ and Kevin were looking right at me...It was a dream come true. I couldn't believe I was standing front row, looking at Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, Kevin Richardson and AJ McLean perform live a few feet from me! If I were a teenager back in 2000's I would have fainted right then and there....

I still feel it was all a dream...but I have the pictures and videos to remind myself that it was real! I even woke up this morning, scrolled through my pics to make sure that it was all real...that I wasn't dreaming...

Here are some pics from this epic night!
