Backstreet Boys announce NZ tour dates for 2020

In celebration of their latest studio album 'DNA', legendary pop superstars Backstreet Boys are heading back to New Zealand for a pair of concerts at Auckland's Spark Arena next year. After their NZ dates, they'll be travelling across the Tasman sea to play four shows happening in Australia, hitting Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena, Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena and Perth's RAC Arena.

Backstreet Boys (whose members are AJ McLean, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter, Howie Dorough and Kevin Richardson) have been enthralling their much-adoring fans for more than 20 years. Since breaking onto the scene in the early '90s, the group have become the biggest selling band of all time—reigning at music charts hit after hit. Their tenth studio album 'DNA' has owned Billboard's No. 1 spot upon its release (the band's first no. 1 in nearly 20 years). It features the Grammy Award-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).

"That's what I love about the DNA album," says Kevin. "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."

As they hit the road in 2020, Kiwi fans will experience BSB's harmony-laden vocal prowess—featuring an extensive lineup of mega-watt classics such as 'I Want It That Way', 'Everybody (Backstreet's Back)', 'As Long As You Love Me', as well as songs from their latest 'DNA' catalogue. Their live performance will also highlight their signature, flawless choreography, costume changes, trap doors and a pyramid-shaped stage of light. The 'DNA World Tour' is the band's largest tour to date—selling out venues throughout Europe and the United Kingdom and is currently trekking across North America.

"There are trap doors, giant V-shaped video screens, a pyramid-type stage of light, impeccable choreography, numerous outfit changes and a whopping 32 songs." - The Guardian (UK)

"Two hours of pop perfection were matched by impressive vocals, a perfectly pitched setlist and proper interaction with the crowd. An array of tracks from new album DNA slotted seamlessly into the repertoire, but never distracted from revelling in the riches of the past." - Express (UK)

We know you wouldn't want to miss a night of pure nostalgia and breathtaking entertainment, so secure your tickets fast and get amongst Backstreet Boys' exciting Kiwi shows in 2020!
