"The vibe is fantastic," Nick Carter told ABC's "Good Morning America." The Central Park summer show will be the '90s boy band's first performance together, with all five members, since 2006.

Backstreet is back alright, and fully reunited. With fellow member Kevin Richardson rejoining the '90s boy band since his departure in 2006, the Backstreet Boys will return with a performance in Central Park on August 31, their first show together in six years. The show will air live on ABC’s Good Morning America.
