Nineties heart-throbs Backstreet Boys will return to the UK this spring as their new tour arrives in Manchester.
Named after their eighth studio album In a World Like This, the tour will see the pop legends return to the North West on Saturday, April 5.
It will be the group’s tenth concert tour, consisting of more than 90 dates across the USA, Asia and Europe.
Backstreet Boys, which is made up of AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell, first formed in Orlando, Florida, in 1993.
They shot to fame with their debut self-titled album Backstreet Boys, which was followed by Backstreet’s Back in 1997, Millennium in 1999 and Black and Blue in 2006.
The In a World Like This tour is also the band’s first tour as a quintet in seven years after Kevin rejoined in 2012 following a six-year break to pursue other interests.
The shows will feature hits such as All I Have to Give, Larger Than Life and Everybody (Backstreet’ s Back) as well as the UK number one single I Want It That Way.
In addition to Manchester, the band will also play gigs in London, Glasgow and Dublin as part of their UK tour leg and will be supported by girl group All Saints.
Similarly to Backstreet Boys, All Saints was formed in 1993 by sisters Nicole and Natalie Appleton, Melanie Blatt and Shaznay Lewis.
Best-known for their Brit award-winning single Never Ever, the group also sang Pure Shores which featured in the 2000 film The Beach starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tilda Swinton.
The show at the Manchester Phones4u Arena starts at 6pm.
