BACKSTREET’S BACK Friday night in Milwaukee saw the Backstreet Boys playing their first gig in the two months since AJ McLean‘s stint in rehab sidelined their tour. Many dates were postponed as McLean spent several weeks being treated for alcoholism and depression. On stage Friday, the other four members of the band welcomed him back by spraying him with Silly String.
