Linkin’ Bridge to open for Backstreet Boys at KFC Yum! Center

UPDATE – Sept. 12

Louisville’s very own Linkin’ Bridge will be opening at the long-awaited Backstreet Boys concert Friday at the KFC Yum! Center.

The a capella group confirmed the news to WAVE 3 News on Thursday.


Backstreet’s Back! After rocking their way through Europe the Backstreet Boys are bringing their DNA World Tour straight to Louisville.

The Backstreet Boys will perform at the KFC Yum! Center on Friday, September 13th at 7 PM. Will you answer “The Call”?

It’s been 26 years since they formed in Orlando, Florida and they promised that this will be their biggest tour in 18 years.

DNA, which was released in January, is the Backstreet Boys ninth US studio album. It debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200.

“This is our 10th album and we’re very proud of it,” Kevin Richardson said in a People interview. “There are five of us and we all have various musical influences and tastes, and this album is a representation of that. There [are] different sonic sounds on here. You’ll hear Nashville inspiration, you’ll hear electronica, EDM, rock, pop, and hip-hop and R&B. And that kinda makes up our group DNA.”

Fans may be “Inconsolable” when hearing them perform not just songs from their new album, DNA, but their classics as well.

“Obviously, we are going to do all the hits, sprinkle in some of the new songs from the album as well as a couple of surprises and quite a few of our personal favorites,” AJ McLean told OK Magazine. “It’s about an hour and forty-five-minute show. It’s going to be non stop partying and we cannot wait to bring it around the entire world!”

Tickets start at $29 and are on sale now.
