Due to the overwhelming demand the Backstreet Boys have extended their "In A World Like This" US tour to reach additional cities and return to those markets that sold out so quickly in 2013. With last summer's crowds as big as 16,000 per night, the "In A World Like This" US tour amounted to what became the groups biggest tour in over 10 years, proving that Backstreet is truly back.

"This has been an amazing year!" says Nick Carter. "So much has happened and it just keeps on going. It's amazing for all five of us to see and feel this kind of response! How can we not come back and show our incredible fans this show?!"

Currently on a sold-out world-tour in support of their new album In A World Like This, and celebrating 20 years of record-breaking hits, BSB have added another two-month North American headlining Amphitheatre leg to this massive tour that continues on May 22nd in Seattle, WA. BSB are happy to be joined by Avril Lavigne on these tour dates, which you can find below.

"We really wanted to put together a great show and do our best to give everyone their money's worth," says Brian Littrell. "Avril is an unbelievably talented artist who's a perfect fit to make these shows extra special for our fans."

Its' been an exciting year of honors and accolades for AJ, Brian, Howie, Kevin and Nick. In A World Like This debuted in the Top 5, the group received a star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame, performed for the President of the United States, and made an unforgettable appearance in the Seth Rogen hit film This Is The End which earned the guys a "Best Musical Moment" award nomination at this year's MTV Movie Awards airing on April 13th.

"Being a part of This Is The End has been amazing from start to finish!" says AJ McLean. "Seth, James and everyone else in this crew are beyond talented and we were extremely lucky to be a part of this film."
