The band also announced their biggest arena tours in 18 years! They’ll perform all over the world over the course of three months.
“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,” Dorough, 45, said in a statement on Friday. Littrell, 43, 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.”
Biggest Boy Bands of All Time
The group is currently still playing in Las Vegas, where they’re finishing out their residency “Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life,” which wraps on April 27, 2019. Their 70-stop tour will begin exactly two weeks later on May 11. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday, November 14.
