Massive music news for 90s boy band fans…

Backstreet’s back, alright?! Nineties pop icons The Backstreet Boys are set to perform in Jeddah in May as part of their DNA World Tour.

Are they original? Yeahhhh. Are they the only ones? Well if your question is specifically referring to ‘the only 90s and 00s boyband playing at Jeddah’s F1 Concert Zone on the Jeddah Corniche Circuit on Thursday May 11, 2023″ then, sure, yeahhhh.

Tickets prices and the all-important on-sale date are yet to be confirmed, but we’ll update you as soon as we know more.

Alongside their gig in Jeddah, The Backstreet Boys will also perform in Abu Dhabi on May 7.

All you people can’t you see, can’t you see

The Backstreet Boys rose to fame in 1996 with the release of their first album, and went on to sell over 130 million records. The five-piece, comprising of AJ McLean, Howie D, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell have enjoyed worldwide success for more than 25 years, and are widely regarded as the most successful boyband of all time.

Their back catalogue includes such 90s nostalgia-jarring tracks as  ‘I Want It That Way’, ‘Everybody’, ‘Larger than Life’ and ‘Shape Of My Heart’. We hope to hear them all when the band land in Jeddah in May.
