BACKSTREET BOYS, SHAGGY, KRYSTAL! -- Backstreet's back, all right, although they had to downsize their current tour to play arenas rather than stadiums, suggesting that perhaps as their fan base ages, it's also developing different tastes. Or even just taste. The Boys are joined by reformed dance hall artist Shaggy, who's been caught red-handed stealing hooks from old songs to get on Top 40 radio. Opener KRYStAL!'s syrupy sweet voice should go over well with the young audience; she sounds a lot like Britney or Christina, but she actually has musical talent -- on the piano. Philips Arena (Whitaker/Keel)
