Two weeks from today, Nickelodeon boy band Big Time Rush will launch its Better With U tour in Las Vegas, and starting one week after that (in Chicago on February 24), they will be joined by some very special guests: One Direction.
Are boy bands officially back in style? Ever since the age of the Backstreet Boys and N’Sync, there have been countless attempts to launch new super-groups (Anyone remember Youngstown? Just me? Okay…), though none have really panned out.
But with Big Time Rush on a sold-out tour (and with their single “Music Sounds Better With U” out now), One Direction garnering deafening buzz, and fellow Brit-imports The Wanted racing up the pop charts with their Guetta-esque “Glad You Came,” it looks like the Beliebers and Lovatics might have some new tween fanbases to reckon with.
