Travel back to the 2000s with a Backstreet Boy and a *NSYNC member this weekend.

By the time fans leave Mershon Auditorium Friday night, AJ McLean hopes their faces hurt.

Whether smiling, laughing, singing or shouting, McLean said he hopes fans who come to see him and Joey Fatone perform will have two hours to forget the world.

“I want their bodies to just be invigorated. I want them to leave on cloud nine,” McLean said.

McLean, 46, and Fatone, 47, members of the Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC, respectively, are touring together, stopping at Mershon Auditorium, 1871 N. High St., Friday night for their “A Legendary Night” tour.

The show includes songs from both iconic bands’ discographies, as well as several solo songs from McLean’s upcoming solo album.
