In May, The Backstreet Boys will perform for the first time in Abu Dhabi.
On May 7, the well-known US boyband, which has been active for 30 years, will perform at Etihad Arena.
They last performed in the region in Saudi Arabia in 2019 following the release of their well-received album DNA, and this concert will mark their comeback. Their initial venture into the kingdom.
There have been triumphs and tragedies throughout the transitional period.
The group reached the top of the US charts in 2021 with the holiday album A Very Backstreet Christmas, and they lamented Aaron Carter’s passing last year. Aaron Carter was a singer and the brother of group member Nick Carter.
The Backstreet Boys paid tribute to Carter at a concert in London a few days following his passing.
“Tonight, we’ve got a little bit of heavy hearts cause we lost one of our family members yesterday and we just wanted to find a moment in our show to recognise him,” said singer Kevin Richardson on stage.
The five-piece, which was formed in 1993, is still one of the greatest boybands on earth and has a devoted following throughout the Arab world.
The band’s sold-out performance at the Blended festival on their previous visit to the UAE had over 10,000 fans singing along to songs like “Larger than Life” and “Everybody.”
