As New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys enjoy a career comeback with a joint concert tour, *NSYNC star Lance Bass is hoping to have a hit of his own. The singer is producing a new reality show that aims to find the ultimate boy band.
"It's going to be really fun," Bass tells Vulture. "It's a really great music show, starring all your favorite boy bands."
So what's the concept?

Just because McKinley High's done for the summer doesn't mean the talented "Glee" cast is taking a break. Fourteen of the show's cast members plus a couple of Warblers are staying busy with an international tour and plenty of other projects until the addicting show begins again in the fall.
Although Chris Colfer is joining the main crew in the "Glee Live! In Concert!" tour throughout the U.S., U.K. and Ireland until July, the 21-year-old recently announced he has signed a two-book deal with Little, Brown Books.
"When I was 10-years-old, I promised myself that if I ever had the opportunity to write this book, I would jump at the chance,” he said in a press release. “This book has been at the core of my imagination for a long time and I’m excited and nervous to share it.”

Break out the leg warmers, acid washed jeans and Ray-ban sunglasses because the '80s are coming back!
Well, maybe not the fashion (again), but some of the decade’s hottest musical artists are planning on touring this year. Janet Jackson has already announced several U.S. cities as stops on her world tour, and now Boy George has confirmed that Culture Club will be reuniting for a new album and hitting the road.
For U.S. fans willing to travel to the United Kingdom, they can check out the “Here and Now 10th Anniversary Tour" in June, which will feature George and other '80s acts, including Belinda Carlisle of The Go Go’s and A Flock of Seagulls.

Backstreet’s back, alright – and this time, they’re on a boat.
The boy band released news that they’re kicking off a four-day cruise at the end of the year, departing from South Florida on December 9.
The actual ports of call have yet to be described in more detail other than "exotic," but according to the band’s Web site, cruise participants will be treated to “an intimate” performance from Backstreet, a Q&A session, photo ops and a beach party.
Tickets for fan club members go on pre-sale March 15, with public sale beginning March 22. You have to buy your tickets through the official site, unless you want to run the risk of being left out of the “private” events.

Just as their album "This is Us" is about to drop (Tuesday October 6th), the Backstreet Boys are dropping out of several scheduled appearances. Brian Littrell has been diagnosed with H1N1 flu, also known as swine flu.
It's unfortunate timing – the band was scheduled to appear today for a signing at NYC PINKTOBER Hard Rock Café and Tuesday on the CBS "Early Show," performing their new single "Straight Through My Heart." Band members Nick Carter, Howie Dorough and AJ McLean apparently aren't showing any symptoms and have been prescribed Tamiflu as a preventative measure. The band just returned from touring in Tokyo.
Littrell released this statement via his record label: "We were really looking forward to spending time with our closest fans and friends in NYC and take part of PINKTOBER, an unbelievable and important program. I hope we can come back soon and do everything we can to help."
No word on the rest of their scheduled appearances.
