After a soft opening with local bands on Friday, Sunday night marked the first official concert at the Downtown Raleigh Amphitheater.
Fans were so excited to see the Backstreet Boys that they even sat through rain to finish the concert.
Hours before the group took to the stage to become the first Live Nation act at the new venue, the Boys held a soundcheck for some of their fan club members.
Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, and A.J. McLean braved Sunday’s heat to perform a few songs for their fans.
The guys also took time to speak with NBC-17 before hitting the stage. The boys talked about what it’s like to be in a band for 17 years and their thoughts about the new concert venue.
