The Backstreet Boys much-hyped reunion tour is in trouble before it has begun - the ageing boyband are struggling to sell tickets.

According to reports, concert promoters have scaled down the size of venues and are even giving away a free ticket with ever two bought, three weeks before they start the tour to promote their comeback album NEVER DIE.

A source tells PageSix.Com, "Tickets aren't selling. Nothing is sold out. It is starting to look like a Spinal Tap tour."
