    Updated:

    ATLANTA - The Backstreet Boys are back again! 

    The band announced its biggest arena tour in 18 years and it includes a stop in Atlanta. They'll play State Farm Arena on Wed. Aug. 21. 

    The Backstreet Boys also announced the release of their new album DNA. It comes out Jan. 25.

    Beginning on May 11, the band will perform all over Europe and North America over the course of three months, headlining venues including Capital One Arena in Washington DC,  United Center in Chicago, the O2 Arena in London, and many more.

    Tickets will go on sale Nov. 14 at LiveNation.com. Every ticket purchased to the North American headlining tour will include one copy of their 10th studio album DNA. 

    “When this group started 26 years ago – and through all the highs and lows of our career – we’ve had to learn it wasn’t about us as individuals but about what’s best for the group,” says Howie D.

    “That’s what I love about this album,” adds 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.”

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

    After 14 months of setting and breaking records in Las Vegas, BSB’s residency “Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life” will come to an end on April 27, 2019.

    "Vegas has been amazing and these next set of dates are going to be a party,” says Howie D. “Then it’s time for us to visit our fans all over the world.”
