Backstreet Boys have added a massive gig in Manchester to their world tour this year.

The legendary 90s boyband will be performing at the AO Arena on their DNA World Tour.

An extra UK show in Manchester, as well as more dates in Paris and Antwerp, have been added after their London gig sold out.

The five-piece said they ‘can’t wait to see even more of you’ when they arrive in Europe in October.

Backstreet Boys were behind iconic songs such as Everybody (Backstreet’s Back), I Want It That Way, and Quit Playing Games.

The band is made up of Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, AJ McLean, and cousins Brian Littrell and Kevin Richardson, all of whom will be heading back to the live stage.

They’ve sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making them the best-selling boyband of all time.


The group also undertook a two-year residency in Las Vegas between 2017 and 2019.

They’ll be performing at the AO Arena Manchester on 8 November.
