Backstreet Boys’ new album will be out in January, and they will go on a tour promoting it, with Budapest being among the destinations as well. They will perform in Papp László Budapest Sports Arena (or simply just Arena).
The band of five, who had their golden age during the 1990s, released their new single, Chances, on Friday, as the precursor of their new album, DNA, Origo reports. Among others, the new album features songs of artists like Lauv (Charlie XCX), Andy Gammer, Stuart Crichton (DNC) and Mike Sabbath (J Balvin).
Backstreet Boys will start touring with the album on DNA World Tour from May 2019 which will be
the biggest arena tour in the band’s last 20 years.
They will travel through Europe and North America in more than three months and will play in iconic venues like the O2 Arena in London, the AccorHotels Arena in Paris or the Mercedes Benz Arena in Berlin. Nick Carter, Howie Dorough Brian Littrel, AJ McClean and Kevin Richardson are the members of the 25-year-old band. Their first hit was We’ve Got It Going On, followed by Quit Playin’ Games (With My Heart), As long as You Love Me or I Want It That Way.
They sold more than 130 million LPs worldwide, landing among the 30 artists who have sold the most albums of all time. The greatest success was Millenium released in 1999 which was
sold in 30 million copies.
They were nominated for a Grammy seven times between 1999 and 2002. They received their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2013. The band started a show-series in Las Vegas that is breaking records. The Larger Than Life Series will end after fourteen months next April. The guys have already played two shows in Budapest, one in 1996 and one in 1997, both in the former Budapest Sports Arena.
We have already written that not only Backstreet Boys but many other musicians will come to Hungary to perform sooner or later. For example, Ed Sheeran, who will headline Sziget Festival in 2019 or Sting and Shaggy, who will play a free concert on Heroes’ Square next Saturday, on the 24th of November.
