While prebooking for the concerts are open, the ticket prices have yet to be announced. Users can prebook on the Live Nation website.

For 29 years, the Backstreet Boys remain staples of the pop music scene and one of its most influential bands. Hitting the charts at number one several times over, the Backstreet Boys have earned countless awards and broken countless records with their live performances. According to Live Nation, they have been recognized as the “best-selling boy band in history.”

Earlier in 2019, the band released its Grammy nominated 10th studio album “DNA” with RCA Records. Debuting at number one, it soon became a critically acclaimed and chart topping album with several hits, including the memorable single ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.’

‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ was also the band’s first hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in a decade, charting in over 22 countries worldwide.
