The pop band will release their tenth studio album, DNA, on Jan. 25, 2019. And the tour, which will kick off on May 11 that year, will be the band's biggest one in 18 years.

Throughout the three months, they will play all over Europe and North America - including London’s O2 Arena, Paris’s AccorHotels Arena, Berlin’s Mercedes-Benz Arena.

The Backstreet Boys will play Dublin's 3Arena on June 11, 2019.

Tickets for the gig will go on sale at 10am on Friday, November 16.

On the new album, Howie said:

"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."

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

He continued:

“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.”
