Boy bands: they've been around in one form or another since the '60s, and they've often been the music of our childhoods and/or teen years. For some of us, they were our first crushes. For others, they taught us what the word "rivalry" means (Backstreet Boys versus *NSYNC, anyone?). Boy bands have been "in", they've been "out," and now they're back in thanks to the likes of One Direction and, more recently, BTS.
They're so "in," in fact, that some boy bands of yore are reuniting. After seven years on hiatus, Big Time Rush is officially returning to the stage. They'll only be returning for a small tour, with shows in Chicago and New York, but all four original members—Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Logan Henderson, and Carlos Pena Jr.—will be in attendance.
