Time Out says

Backstreet's back – complete with slick dance moves, stadium-filling pop and the original line-up

Not all boy bands are created equal, and Backstreet Boys are a cut above the rest. They've amassed more than 100 million album sales since their epnoymous debut album in 1996, and have continued touring to sold-out arenas. What's more, unlike most other bands of their ilk, they've still got the original line-up: AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell.

The Backstreet Boys – well men, really – are returning to Australia for the first time in five years with their DNA tour, a veritable pop spectacular. The tour is in support of their new album, DNA, so the setlist is peppered with new material. But fans of vintage Backstreet Boys needn't fear: they're still happy to pull out their biggest hits more than two decades later and execute them with the kind of pop precision you expect.

They'll be dropping into Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena on May 26, and have also got dates elsewhere. Tickets for all dates are on sale through Ticketek on September 23 at noon.
