Backstreet Boys Extend World Tour, Avril Lavigne to Open
Backstreet's back, alright!
Nick Carter, AJ McLean, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson and Howie Dorough made an exciting announcement this morning on 'Good Morning America' -- the band is extending their world tour and coming back to North America this spring!
The additional dates will kick off on Saturday, May 3 in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada and will continue a string of dates across the country until coming to the U.S. on May 22 in Seattle, Washington. The Boys will then embark on a cross-country U.S. leg where they will hit up L.A., Chicago, New York and everywhere in between before concluding the tour in Wantagh, N.Y. at the iconic Jones Beach Theater on June 22. And even more dates will be added soon!
This extension of the 'In a World Like This' tour will be supported by Avril Lavigne, which the guys are super stoked about.
"We really wanted to put together a great show and do our best to give everyone their money's worth," Littrell stated. "Avril is an unbelievably talented artist who's a perfect fit to make these shows extra special for our fans."
