Backstreet Boys announce massive ‘DNA’ world tour, new album

Everybody, it’s time to rock your body because the Backstreet Boys are going on tour! On Friday (Nov. 9), the Florida-founded boy band announced plans to embark on a massive tour in 2019. Titled the DNA world tour, the trek will find the group dancing their way across two continents throughout the new year.

The upcoming excursion will begin right after the five-piece wrap up their yearlong “Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life” residency at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood in April of 2019. The United Kingdom/European leg of the tour will begin on May 11 at the Altice Arena in Portugal. After being on the road for a month and a half, the trek will conclude on June 25 at the Budapest Arena in Hungary.

Following a short breather, the group will jump-start the North American leg in mid-July. The North American portion will commence on July 12 at the Capital One Arena in Washington D.C. After performing their way across venues in the United States and Canada, the tour will come to an end on Sept. 15 at the Prudential Center in Newark.

If a massive world tour was not enough to bring out all the Backstreet Boys fans, then a brand new album may have done the trick. In addition to the 70-date jaunt across the world, the act also announced plans to release a new album in January. Titled DNA (like the tour), the album is due out Jan. 25. DNA will be the follow-up to 2013’s In a World Like This.

In conjunction with the new album news, the band also debuted the record’s lead single; a track titled “Chances.” The new tune was co-written by One Republic’s Ryan Tedder and pop star Shawn Mendes. Listen to “Chances” here.

Tickets for the Backstreet Boys’ upcoming tour will go on sale beginning Wednesday, Nov. 14. All tour tickets purchased will receive a physical copy of the group’s new album upon its January release.
