Backstreet Boys are Back with New Album and a New World Tour in 2019

13th November 2018 | Category: Concerts

Great news for all of you who had all your walls covered up in Backstreet posters twenty to twenty-five years ago because they are back, big style.

The famous pop boy band has announced a new album and a world tour for 2019 and we simply couldn’t believe it.  Arena dates are already there so don’t waste any time and purchase your tickets right now, just pick the city closest to you.

Backstreet’s back, alright.

The band announced Friday morning their long-anticipated album DNA will be released on 25 January. They also dropped a new single “Chances”, written by One Republic frontman Ryan Tedder and pop singer Shawn Mendes.

The lead single for the album “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” was released back in May and the band has recently completed their Las Vegas residency called “Larger Than Life” and managed to wrap up their album.

In addition to that, they have announced a 70-date tour, not just in support of their upcoming DNA album but also to celebrate their twenty-sixth anniversary. This extensive tour will hit UK, Europe, Australia and North America.

“The journey is ongoing with us and there is so much left to do,” said member Brian Littrell in a statement. “We’re living the next chapter that hasn’t been told yet, and that’s exciting.” Bandmate Howie D added, “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.”

The DNA World Tour opens in Europe in May before heading to North America in July.

The North American 43-date leg opens on 12 July in Washington, D.C. and currently concludes on 15 September at Newark, New Jersey’s Prudential Center.BSB has sold over 100 million records world-wide, had their first 9 albums at the Top 10 on Billboard and the only boy band who did so till today. They are the best-selling boy band of all time so they still have a lot to offer.

This will be BSB’s biggest arena trek in 18 years and the album DNA is their first LP in six years so it will be interesting to see how their music has evolved over the time.

“That’s what I love about this album,” BSB’s Kevin Richardson said in a statement. “We were able to bring all of our influences and styles into one coherent piece of work. These songs are a great representation of who we are as individuals and who we are as a group. It’s our DNA. We’re really proud of that.”

Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, A. J. McLean and Kevin Richardson can’t wait for the album to be out and for the tour to kick off.

Buy your tickets in time and enjoy their DNA music.
