Backstreet Boys Excited About Indian Cuisines
American boy band Backstreet Boys are coming to India for annual Rock 'N India music festival. But the band is not only excited for the tour but also for Indian cuisines.
The band members said, "Indian food is something that's definitely on our checklist. Nothing in particular, but by the end of our trip to India we should be able to name a few favourites."
The band, which has given hits like "Quit playing games", "Get down", "Show me the meaning of being lonely" among others, is all set to rub shoulders with legendary singer Richard Marx, South African alternative band Prime Circle & Jayce Lewis along with some Indian rock bands at the annual Rock 'N India music festival in Delhi and Bangalore on Feb 20 and Feb 21 respectively.
The band also has plans to meet some Indian musicians because so far they are only familiar with ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ music.
"Our exposure to Indian music so far is limited. Probably, only songs from 'Slumdog Millionaire', which we thought were great. So while we are in India, we are definitely looking forward to checking out the songs and dances and may be even meeting some musicians," the boy band explained.
The four-member band cited that they are excited about performing for Indian fans, and want to pick up some Hindi too.
Members of the band said, "We intend to pick up some Hindi while we are in India, This is our first time in India. We know we have a huge fan base here. We have run into many Indians at our shows, especially in Europe, who walk up to us and asked us to tour India. Now that we're finally getting the opportunity, we are looking forward to performing for our Indian fans."
