Used to be on the edge of glory, most of these bands shared a common situation. One/ few members of the band exited and the rest had to go on tours without a missing piece. Some of them finally broke up amicably, a few luckily got reunited. Anyway, the show must go on and all of them tried their best and not to make disappointed fans. Check out the list below for classic examples of musical chairs in the industry.


Fifth Harmony

After Camila Cabello left the group in 2016 to head into her solo career, Fifth Harmony remained their activities and tours as a four-member band for 9 more months. Their PSA tour took place in 2017 is the last time we saw them together before the whole band spat up.


One Direction

The same situation happened to the boy band when Zayn Malik decided to quit in the middle of their On the Road Again tour. They continued finishing the tour before breaking up. Fortunately, we still see them here and there on the media as all of them are doing good with their solo career.



Backstreet Boys

With 5 members, this American boy group used to be a craze in the late ’90s and early 2000s. There was a time they only worked with 4 members as Kevin Richardson split away in 2007 to be a solo singer. After that, the band went on their This Is Us and Unbreakable and tours with only 4 members. However, they finally teamed up 5 years later in 2012 and continued as a quintet again until now.
