Announcing the 2014 tour, the Band said:
“Our last shows were with NKOTB and we had a fantastic time - the reaction was out of this world. We can’t wait to come back and blow you away with our own full headline show. We’re really excited for our fans to see us again as a five-piece. The original Backstreet’s back!”
December 16th sees the release of the stunning new single 'Show'Em (What You're Made Of)'.
