With a promise to be back soon, the four-member band not only sang their all time hits, they danced and play-acted too, all to the delight of their crazed fans.
"This is our first performance in India and we don't know what to expect. Our fans know us and our chart superhits well enough, we are looking forward to having a good show," said the band before going onstage.
The Backstreet Boys were in the capital last night to headline the Romanov Red Rock 'n India concert, which also featured artists like Richard Marx and Jayce Lewis.
Their show was divided into segments interspersed with funny videos which had each of the band members A J McLean, Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough super-imposed in some scenes from Hollywood movies including 'Matrix' and 'Enchanted'.
"Do you want us to come back soon? Its a pleasure and a privilege performing in New Delhi today," Brian told the screaming fans, as Nick added, "India, you have waited for so long, now stick around. We love you."
Dressed mainly in black, the pop group also put on the garb of aliens to dance to their hit track Larger Than Life alongwith four female back-up dancers. They also sung some new numbers from their latest album This Is Us.
