Backing tracks are fine, especially for popular music where you want to reproduce the sound of the original. Appropriate backing tracks can let you do proper cover versions without needing a full band. Done well, it can be very effective, and will probably get a better response from your audience than a solo performance accompanying yourself on an acoustic guitar.
The mistake is to think that it is an easy option. It needs thorough practice and rehearsal, because if anything goes wrong there is no way back.
