The Backstreets Boys announced their anticipated 20th anniversary summer tour, In A World Like This, on Ryan Seacrest’s morning radio show Monday.
“Backstreet Boys are going on tour this summer,” says Nick Carter. “That’s right, baby! All five of us are back together. It’s our 20th anniversary tour. We’ve got a brand new album coming out.”
The Jersey Shore‘s DJ Pauly D and Jesse McCartney are scheduled to join Nick, Howie, A.J., Brian and Kevin on the road.
The boy band have been working hard on recording their new album, the first since Kevin rejoined the band last year.
“It doesn’t sound like The Call or it doesn’t sound like the Millennium album,” Kevin told MTV News. “But it’s fresh; it’s new. We are trying to find where we are now sonically, and we are experimenting. It’s really exciting.”
The tour kicks off in Chicago on Aug. 2nd and ends in San Francisco Sept. 8.
