"There was a time when there were a lot of groups like us -- you had the Britneys, you had the 'N Syncs, us, 98 Degrees -- and the objective was to blow up as many things as you could onstage," says Brian Littrell. "But this tour, it's going to be about the music. The fans are going to see us five -- there won't be twenty-five dancers."

The five -- Littrell, Kevin Richardson, Howie Dorough, A.J. McLean and Nick Carter -- will perform ten songs off Never Gone, as well as their entire Chapter 1 greatest hits compilation.

That's not to say there'll be no frills. "We might have a little bit of pyro here and there," says Littrell.

"And we're going to break out the sequin blazers," Richardson jokes.

"We are grateful to his legal team, the court and district attorney. His required fulfillment of the alcohol program will not interfere with Backstreet Boy's current touring and promotions of the new album," said Carter's publicist, Juliette Harris, who is also quick to point out that "alcohol program" does not equal rehab.

The statement continues to say that "Carter regrets his mistake and looks forward to fulfilling his requirements and putting this incident behind him. As always he is thankful to his fans for standing by him and the Backstreet Boys."

Carter was slapped with the two misdemeanor charges after getting pulled over for erratic driving Mar. 5 in Huntington Beach and flubbing a field sobriety test.

At the time, his rep denied Carter was under the influence.

"Nick Carter deeply regrets the current situation. He is on doctor-prescribed medication and was unaware of its interaction possibilities," Harris said in March.

Okay, BSB's insistence to put themselves apart from other boybanders and pop princesses is beginning to irk. They weren't the first - NKOTB were. Sure, Boys were first in *that* wave of pop uprising but they weren't the first boyband and they wouldn't be the last. Suck it up, already.

Re: Nick. Are mouthpieces really taught that denydenydeny, if it's lying, is better than admitting the truth? After denydenydeny, 99% of the time, they have to eat their words!

true... and before that there were the monkees, and the beatles, and all those 60s boy bands with one hit wonders... anyone who had a pretty face and an ok voice... i guess my cynical definition of boyband is any singer/group that relies on appearance and entertainment value more than vocals/playing instruments/writing own songs to sell records. though i guess kevin would say they're a "vocal harmony group" or something, heh.

on nick, i thought his publicist's statements were extremely interesting... i was trying to search for juicier information on the whole incident but this hash from the mouthpiece was the only thing i could find. sadly. so to publicize they deny nick's problem and inflate the "redemption" theme of aj's past problem... v. v. interesting.

sorry for ranting away! i find myself being very cynical these days, unfortunately. :(
