BACKSTREET BOYS: @t 33 On Billboard Top 40 Top Money Makers Of 2011

Ranking a few notches above tour mates New Kids on the Block (No. 36), Backstreet Boys grossed $15.8 million last year, mostly from the combination NKOTBSB tour. The show, which features BSB and New Kids performing their hits together, kicked off in May with more than 50 North American dates, and continues with overseas dates through this spring. The Boys came off their own tour just a few months before hitting the road with NKOTB, which could explain their higher rank on the Money Makers list. In 2011 the two groups released a compilation of their combined greatest hits, two new joint recordings and a mashup. Total album sales for BSB came in at 120,000 units for the year.
