Group cancels CBS Early Show performance and Hard Rock Cafe NYC Pinktober signing

Other three members and traveling party taking preventive measures

The Backstreet Boys are sad to announce they have cancelled their NYC PINKTOBER Hard Rock Café signing due to member, Brian Litrell having been diagnosed with the Swine Flu.

The other 3 members, Nick Carter, Howie Dorough and AJ McLean have seen a doctor and are not showing any symptoms. As a preventive measure, the doctor has prescribed Tamiflu to the group and their touring party, who had just returned to the states from Tokyo.

This unfortunate occurrence will also result in the cancelling of the group's CBS Early Show performance Tuesday October 6th. BSB was scheduled to perform their new single "Straight Through My Heart." The intimate performance at PC Richards (downtown) has also been cancelled and rescheduled for a later date.

"We were really looking forward to spending time with our closest fans and friends in NYC and take part of PINKTOBER, an unbelievable and important program" Litrell says. "I hope we can come back soon and do everything we can to help."

The Backstreet Boys are in New York in support of their new album THIS IS US, out October 6th on Jive Records. The rest of the band's promotional schedule for this week has not been determined. Details to come.
