Backstreet’s Back…For Real

The Backstreet Boys are back with some major announcements for their fans.

ICYMI, the boy band that rose to fame in the ’90s announced yesterday they’re embarking on a world tour this spring and have a new album titled “DNA” dropping on January 25!

The tour begins May 11, 2019 in Lisbon, Portugal and will end on September 15, 2019 in Newark, New Jersey. But here’s the most exciting part–unless something changes, the tour’s very first show in America is right here in DC at Capital One Arena on July 12!

In a statement, Howie D. said, “When this group started 26 years ago — and through all the highs and lows of our career — we’ve had to learn it wasn’t about us as individuals but about what’s best for the group.” Brian Littrell echoed his bandmate’s excitement. “The journey is ongoing with us and there is so much left to do,” he said. “We’re living the next chapter that hasn’t been told yet, and that’s exciting.”

For the past 14 months the group has been hitting the stage for their Las Vegas residency “Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life.” That residency, however, will end in April…and then it’s off on the road.

But the tour and album–the group’s first since 2013–weren’t the only surprises. To hold fans over until the album drops, the band also released their latest single, “Chances,” along with its music video…
