Backstreet Boys Announce New Album 'DNA,' Reveal World Tour
They're also back with the single "Chances"
Published Nov 09, 2018No one could have predicted that the year 2019 would boast tours from the Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys alike — but here we are. Following the Spice Girls' reunion plans, the famed '90s boyband will embark on another world tour of their own next year in support of their newly announced album DNA.
On January 25, the new DNA full-length will arrive via RCA Records. The record, which marks their 10th studio album, features songs written by Lauv (Charli XCX), Andy Grammer, Stuart Crichton (DNCE) and Mike Sabbath (J Balvin).
For a taste of the new album, Backstreet Boys have shared its first single "Chances," which has arrived as a new music video that you can watch below.
In support of the record, the "DNA World Tour" will see the boys leaving their Las Vegas residency and going on a European jaunt, before hitting North America for shows throughout the summer.
The North American leg of the tour starts in Washington, DC, on July 12, before heading north to Canada for a run of concerts. They'll perform in Ottawa on July 14, Montreal on July 15, Toronto on July 17, Winnipeg on July 22, Calgary on July 24, Edmonton on July 25 and Vancouver on July 27.
BSB will return stateside after that, eventually bringing the tour to a close in Newark, NJ, on September 15.
Tickets go on sale November 14, and each ticket includes a physical copy of Backstreet Boys' upcoming album DNA.
See the full list of North American dates listed below, where you'll also find a video trailer for the tour.
"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," said the group's Howie D in a statement.
BSB's Kevin Richardson 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."
