Big Time Rush might kick off this tour as a boy band, but by the time that rundown tour bus pulls into Portland on Sept. 18 these guys will be grizzled veterans of the road. The “summer” tour spills deep into the fall so hopefully they’ve been getting their rest. They should count themselves lucky if they all make it back in one piece. Boy bands are fragile. You can’t just throw them out into the world for months on end and expect everything to just work out. I’m sure Nickelodeon has some sort of contingency plan in place. My theory involves clones.
