Backstreet Boys return, celebrating their 20th anniversary with their In A World Like This UK arena tour in 2014. The band will be performing all their hits, as well as songs from their new album 'In A World Like This'.

The band said: “Last time we were in the UK we were living in a house together recording our album, which was incredible. Our last UK 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 UK fans to see us again as a five-piece. The original Backstreet’s back!”
