Backstreet’s back, alright…

Nope, we’re not playing games with your heart… Nineties pop icons The Backstreet Boys are back again, and this time, they’ll be performing in Riyadh for the 2024 Diriyah E-Prix.

The famed boyband will headline the after-race concert on Saturday January 27, and completing the line-up on the final day of the sporting event are Egyptian rock band Cairokee and Dutch DJ and music producer Afrojack.

It’s not the first time the Backstreet Boys have performed in Saudi Arabia; they enthralled fans in Jeddah with their popular numbers and signature shtick in May last year as part of their DNA World Tour.

The Backstreet Boys rose to fame in 1996 with the release of their first album, and sold over 130 million records. The five-piece, comprising AJ McLean, Howie D, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell, has enjoyed worldwide success for over 25 years and is widely regarded as the most successful boyband ever.

Their back catalogue includes nostalgia-jarring tracks, such as “I Want It That Way”, “Everybody”, “Larger than Life” and “Shape Of My Heart”. The band may not be topping charts at the moment, but if history is anything to go by, the after-race concert looks set to be a hot ticket.

Meanwhile, One Republic, DJ Alesso, and the Queen of Arab Music, Nancy Ajram, will light up the stage on Friday January 26.
