​Backstreet Boys Announce Their Biggest Arena Tour In Years

I don't know about you but after the Spice Girls reunion announcement this week, I feel like the 90s are well and truly back and I am 100 per cent behind it.

But there's even more 90s nostalgia to hit you with this week as the Backstreet Boys have just announced their biggest arena tour in 18 years.

That's right, Backstreets back, alright! Sorry I couldn't resist.

The five-piece boyband will be heading out on tour across the UK, Europe and North America with their 'DNA World Tour'.

AJ, Howie, Nick, Kevin, and Brian will be practising their air grabs and side steps before they take to the stage in Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and London next June.

They're touring around the same time as the Spice Girls so this really is a 90s babies dream.

We know you already have the lyrics from all their classics perfected by now but the 90s heart throbs will be releasing a brand new album, DNA, on the 25 January 2019 for you to enjoy.

The new album will feature songs written by songwriters who have also written for Charli XCX and J Balvin.

The Backstreet Boys have also released their new single, written by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder and Shawn Mendes, called 'Chances'.

Speaking about their new album on Good Morning Britain, Howie 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.

Kevin added: "That's what I love about this album.

"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."

Brian also added: "The journey is ongoing with us and there is so much left to do.

"We're living the next chapter that hasn't been told yet, and that's exciting."

The dates for tour include Manchester Arena on Monday 10th June, Dublin's 3 Arena on Tuesday 11th June, Glasgow's SSE Hydro on Friday 14th June, Birmingham Arena on Saturday 15th June, London's The O2 on Monday 17th June.
