It's all happening —
 Backstreet is actually fucking back, alright?

Backstreet Boys have a new album (DNA, out in 2019) followed by a massive world tour, so we can finally avenge our trash ass parents for not camping outside of Harmony House in 1999 for tickets to both back-to-back BSB shows at the Palace of Auburn Hills for the Into The Millenium Tour. Because clearly, we're not over it.

While Nick, Brian, Howie, A.J., and Kevin aim to wrap a record-breaking Las Vegas residency, the three-month world tour will kick off in May of next year and will find the Backstreet Men at Little Caesars Arena on Aug. 12.

Tickets ($29+) go on sale Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased here.

To coincide with the announcement, of course, they released a new song and video. Just remember to not stare into Kev's eyes too long or you'll be lost forever and you'll never get to see BSB in concert. Watch "Chances" below.
