Backstreet’s back? All right!
Iconic boy band The Backstreet Boys announced Friday the group’s largest arena tour in 18 years, coinciding with the release of its first studio album in six years.
The DNA World Tour will take the band all over North America and Europe with 70 shows, including a stop at Newark’s Prudential Center on Sept. 15, 2019 that promises to be larger than life.
Tickets can be purchased starting Nov. 14 at noon at Ticketmaster.com and by calling 1-800-745-3000. And the Prudential Center box office will start selling tickets on Nov. 15. Every ticket will include a copy of “DNA,” the band’s 10th studio album, which will be released on Jan. 25.
If you can’t make it to the Newark show, the Backstreet Boys can show you the shape of their heart at Barclays Center in Brooklyn Aug. 15 and Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia Aug. 17.
The Backstreet Boys released their latest single as part of the tour announcement, a song titled “Chances,” written by Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic and Shawn Mendes.
The Backstreet Boys’ 14-month Las Vegas residency “Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life” ends April 27, 2019 before the tour launches on May 11 in Portugal.
“Vegas has been amazing and these next set of dates are going to be a party,” band member Howie D. said in a press release. “Then it’s time for us to visit our fans all over the world.”
