Indian bands like Swarathma and Five Little Indians entertained the audiences first. Post which, Jayce Lewis from the UK, and Prime Circle from South Africa rocked the crowd. While Jayce played his popular songs like Icon, Prime Circle played songs like She Always Gets What She Wants and Consider Me, Consider You.

Ballad king Richard Marx greeted the audiences with a sweet Namasteji and started with When You Are Gone, and went on to perform his hit song, Hazard. “This is a sad song about a little town in the state of Nebraska called Hazard,” he explained.
Richard dedicated Through The Veins to his father. “He was a wonderful, generous man and the best musician I’ve known,” he said.

He then played a song called Here And Now, for which he had collaborated with the band Lifehouse. Richard had obviously saved the best for last — Right Here Waiting For You.
The Backstreet Boys comprising Nick, Brian, AJ and Howie, took the stage soon after. Starting with Everybody, Backstreet’s Back, the guys performed PDA, Quit Playing Games and As Long As You Love Me. “We are honoured and privileged to be performing in India. If it wasn’t for beautiful and lovely people like you, the Backstreet Boys wouldn’t exist,” said Brian. 

Be it their all-time hits like Shape Of My Heart, The Call, Show Me The Meaning, or songs from the latest album This Is Us — She’s A Dream, Bigger, You Need Love  and Bye Bye Love, the band mesmerised everyone.
The robotic dance movements for Larger Than Life took everyone by storm and I’ll Never Break Your Heart, their classic love song was dedicated by AJ, to “all the sexy ladies present.”

The Boys even played spoofs  of Hollywood hits like The Matrix, The Fast and The Furious, Enchanted and Fight Club, in which they had starred. The band ended the show with their biggest hit I Want It That Way and current hit Straight Through My Heart.   
People of all age groups were spotted thoroughly enjoying themselves.

Said singer Jerusha Verghese, “I was so excited to see Backstreet Boys. We have grown up on their music, and I knew all the songs that they sang.” Amazed at the impeccable song and dance show presented by them, she said, “I have done musicals and I know how difficult it is to sing and dance at the same time. They must have practised a lot.”
Her mother Leila, a Richard Marx fan said, “Hazard and Right Here Waiting For You were my favourite performances,” she said. “Many of the Backstreet Boys’ performances were really nice too. The only thing that made me angry was the fact, that they weren’t allowing water or eatables inside. They should make an exception, at least for the elderly.”
