AJ McLean, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter, Howie Dorough and Kevin Richardson have been enthralling fans for more than 25 years and are expanding their massive world tour to New Zealand and Australia starting at Spark Arena in Auckland before visiting Brisbane Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

Featuring their signature, flawless choreography, costume changes, a pyramid-shaped stage of light, trap doors and giant video screens, New Zealand fans will experience their harmony-laden vocal prowess and arsenal of mega-watt hits such as; “I Want It That Way’, ‘Everybody (Backstreet’s Back) and ‘As Long As You Love Me’, plus songs from their tenth studio album, “DNA”.

Touring in support of their tenth studio album and Billboard No. 1, DNA (Sony Music), DNA features the Grammy-nominated single ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ from Stuart Crichton (DNCE) and Jamie Hartman; ‘Chances’ penned by Ryan Tedder and Shawn Mendes plus songs written by Lauv (Charli XCX), Andy Grammer, and Mike Sabbath (J Balvin).

BSB analysed their individual DNA profiles to see what crucial element each member represents in the group’s DNA. Watch the video here, to see how their individual strains, when brought together, create the unstoppable and legendary Backstreet Boys.

"That’s what I love about the DNA album,” says Kevin Richardson. “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.”

After 14 months of setting and breaking records in Las Vegas, BSB’s residency “Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life” ended on April 27 following 80 shows.

Produced by Live Nation, The Backstreet Boys DNA World Tour - their largest arena tour in 18 years - began on May 11 with sell-out performances throughout Europe and the United Kingdom and is currently trekking across North America.

“Vegas was amazing and the UK, European and US dates have been an absolute party,” says Howie D. “Now it’s time for us to visit our fans all over the world.”

“The journey is ongoing with us and there is so much left to do,” added Brian Littrell. “We’re living the next chapter that hasn’t been told yet, and that’s exciting.”

‘Backstreet Boys party like its 1999’ – Variety Magazine
‘The performance was a reminder of a time when pop music was at its finest’ – Daily Star
