'Joey Fatone & AJ McLean: A Legendary Night' Announces August Tour Stop at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH — May 30, 2024 — Big news for boy band fanatics in the Burgh: Worlds will collide at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh when *NSYNC’s Joey Fatone teams up with AJ McLean of the Backstreet Boys for a historic joint concert on Friday, August 23, at 7 p.m.

Tickets to see “Joey Fatone & AJ McLean: A Legendary Night” at The Event Center at Rivers on the North Shore are on sale now, starting at $39.

Joey Fatone

Joey Fatone first rose to fame as a member of the record-shattering multiplatinum boy band *NSYNC, but his career as a global pop icon was just the beginning. Over the past decade, he has gone on to find success as an actor, host, Broadway star, voiceover artist, dancer and media personality with a number of hit television shows under his belt.

Following *NSYNC’s incredible success with albums that sold over 10 million copies and countless awards, Joey proved to be a prominent performer and personality in his own right. With projects spanning television, film and Broadway, his talent has no boundaries.

In November 2019, during Epcot's Food and Wine Festival Eat to the Beat series, Joey performed three days of successful shows titled “Joey Fatone and Friends.” Fans packed the theater and were entertained by Joey along with Chris Kirkpatrick, Ryan Cabrera, Nathan Morris of Boyz II Men, MC Search and more. He continues to do this concept currently at Epcot, Tampa and other cities in the U.S.

In August 2021, Joey Fatone brought together some of the biggest pop superstars for a perfect, intimate evening of pop culture classics and fun for a sold-out residency in Las Vegas. “The AFTR PRTY” featured Joey Fatone, Wanya Morris, Nick Carter and AJ McLean.

At this year's MTV VMAs, Fatone reunited with *NSYNC as presenters, causing the reunion to go viral. The buzz created by the iconic boy band perfectly segued into their first song release in 22 years, “Better Place,” which is featured on the “Trolls Band Together” soundtrack. Fatone also makes a surprise appearance as the voice of Ablaze alongside his *NSYNC bandmates in “Trolls Band Together.”

AJ McLean

You already know AJ McLean as one-fifth of the Backstreet Boys, one of the most successful groups in music history. With countless No. 1s, record-setting tours, numerous awards and worldwide sales exceeding $130 million, the Backstreet Boys have been recognized as the bestselling boy band in history.

A multiple award-winning and Grammy-nominated performer, AJ has delivered the finest pop music one has to offer — tightly crafted songs, floor-shaking rhythms and unmistakable harmonies — making him one of pop’s most influential performers.

“The ’90s brought us some of the greatest boy bands of all time,” said Shannon Redmond, vice president of marketing at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh. “Joey Fatone and AJ McLean are pop culture icons in their own right. We couldn’t be more excited for guests to experience their combined talents in one incredible performance.”

Tickets to see Joey Fatone and AJ McLean’s performance at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh’s Event Center can be purchased at RiversCasino.com/Pittsburgh.
