SAN JOSE, CALIF. – Group sensation, Big Time Rush, had a big comeback in 2022 by going on a reunion tour after disbanding over nine years ago. Back in 2021, Big Time Rush would tease fans about coming back together. Throughout that year, all four boys would post on their social media and make jokes about having a reunion until one day, they posted a video announcing that fans should keep an eye out for updates. One of the members, Kendall Schmidt, even said on Instagram “It’s a new era! gotta live it big time.” when they started to announce their revival.
Schmidt, James Maslow, Logan Henderson and Carlos Pena Vega are not the same people they were when they first started. The band started when they were in their late teens and now they are in their early thirties. They are rebranding themselves and the band as a whole; they went from overnight teen sensations to a new modern-age pop band. Their big-time comeback is a whole new era and fans are here for it! They are creating new music, making new merch and even planning more tour dates.
The four boys truly missed what life was like on tour but they did it differently this time. They sang old songs like “Boyfriend” from 2010 and some new songs like “Call It Like I See It” from 2021. Along with their original songs, they sang well-renowned songs made by other people ranging from “I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys to “Hot in Herre” by Nelly. On top of that, fans were surprised to hear them singing the “Turd Song” from their hit show, Big Time Rush, at concerts. This provided a bunch of nostalgia to those who have been there since day one. Maslow has even stated that the “Turd Song” is the massive hit song they always have to play.
Now that the tour has ended, the past teenage sensations are now drafting more extensive plans for the future. Keely Nguyen, a student from Silver Creek High School said “I was so excited when I found out that they came back together. I saw a lot of videos of their concerts on TikTok and it seemed like so much fun.” Fans are now waiting to hear what is next for Big Time Rush. What will the band do next?
