For the first time in 10 years all five of Backstreet Boys are back together and you can see them on their ‘In A World Like This’ tour when they tour the UK and Ireland. Support comes from one of the biggest and best loved UK girl bands of all time, All Saints, who are reforming especially for this tour.
The boys will kick off the tour on March 26 at Birmingham’s LG Arena and will also be performing dates in Dublin, Glasgow and London with a final show in Manchester April 5.
Last in the UK for the triumphant ‘NKOTBSB’ 2011 tour, the band now return with Kevin Richardson – marking these dates as the first they have done with all original members in nearly 10 years.
The band said: “Last time we were in the UK we were living in a house together recording our album, which was incredible. Our last UK shows were with NKOTB and we had a fantastic time – the reaction was out of this world. We can’t wait to come back and blow you away with our own full headline show. We’re really excited for our UK fans to see us again as a five-piece. The original Backstreet’s back!”
