The Backstreet Boys recently made a comeback to India after 13 years with their DNA World Tour concert on May 4 in Mumbai. The American boy band — Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, AJ McLean, Brian Littrell, and Kevin Richardson — received a warm welcome and cheers upon taking the stage at Mumbai’s Jio World Garden. While several pictures and videos of the band’s performance have been shared, one moment went viral — AJ and Kevin throwing their underwear at the crowd during their concert.
Kevin Richardson and AJ McLean’s Underwear Throwing Moment
A video of the now-famous moment shows Kevin and AJ changing behind a small dressing room on stage and throwing their underwear towards different sections of the audience while reminding them of a past practice. “Remember that time you would throw your bras and panties at us. Tonight, Kevin and I would like to return the favour, ladies,” AJ can be heard saying. The clip became a sensation on social media platforms.
This isn’t the first time that the Backstreet Boys have performed the underwear-throwing trick. The practice has been a staple of their concerts throughout their career, since the band’s formation in 1993.
