Backstreet Boys have delivered the finest pop music for 29 years, making them one of pop’s most influential performers.

With countless record-setting tours, numerous awards and worldwide sales in excess of 130 million, the band has been recognised as the best-selling boy band in history.

In early 2019, Backstreet Boys released a Grammy-nominated 10th studio album “DNA” on RCA Records.

The album debuted at number one and featured the Top 10 hit “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”.

The critically acclaimed and chart topping single was nominated for the Pop Duo/Group Performance Grammy, and was their first hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in 10 years.

Upon its release, the single went straight to number one on iTunes Top Songs and Global charts and charted in more than 22 countries.

In May 2019, the Backstreet Boys kicked off the “DNA World Tour” – the group’s biggest arena tour in 18 years thanks to the global success of their number one new album. “The DNA World Tour” has seen the group sell out arenas all over North America, Europe, Asia and South America.

The “DNA World Tour” kicks off in Cape Town on May 16 at Grand Arena, GrandWest, and on May 19 at SunBet Arena, Time Square in Pretoria.

The band released the first episode of their new documentary series “Making Of The DNA Tour”, giving fans an inside look of the preparation for their highly anticipated world tour.

Additional episodes will be available on “The Backstreet Boys YouTube” channel.

Over the years, the Backstreet Boys continually captivated millions of people with their impressive catalogue of hit songs and creative partnerships.

Tickets are only available exclusively via Ticketmaster from 9am Friday, February 24.
