Formed in 1993, the pop band was made up of A.J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter and Kevin Richardson. Later in 2006, Richardson left the group to pursue other interests.
During their performance, McLean kept clicking pictures of the audience and told them to check their website to have a look at them.
