CONCORD (CBS NEWS) – The members of the Backstreet Boys will be celebrating their 20th anniversary with a summer tour that gets under way in Chicago on Aug. 2 and continues through early September with a stop at the Sleep Train Pavilion in Concord on September 8. It’s hard to believe these guys have been around long enough to go on an anniversary tour. But the truth is, “Quit Playing Games (with My Heart)” was on the radio charts way back in 1996.
