Then who is it that would do such a thing?!
We had mentioned that a curfew partially caused problems, but that wasn't all!
"As has always been the case, the Backstreet Boys production is unlike anything else on the road. Getting this new, state of the art show ready, however, caused the doors to be delayed and the beginning of the show to be pushed back. FirstMerit Bank Pavilion has a strict curfew of 11:00 PM. Given the artist was running behind on setting their production up, the show had to end before the set could be finished … The venue on Northerly Island is bound to an ordinance that requires all performances to conclude prior to 11:00 pm. Venue management worked with the artist to complete their show within the allotted time and, when the show exceeded the curfew, the artist was asked to conclude the show."
Even though this makes sense, we bet the BSB fans in Chicago aren't feeling it!
At least they didn't riot like the Directioners at the This Is Us screening…
…those kiddos could learn a lesson or two. LOLz!
