South Africa has gone Backstreet Boys mad, well on 30-years since one of the world’s most recognised boy bands hit the scene with some of the most memorable anthems of the 1990’s. For 29 years the Backstreet Boys have delivered the hottest pop music, making them one of the genre’s most influential performers. With countless #1s, record-setting tours, numerous awards and worldwide sales in excess of 130-million, BSB has been recognized as the best-selling boy band in history.


In early 2019, BSB released their GRAMMY nominated 10th studio album ‘DNA’ on RCA Records. The album debuted at #1 and features the Top 10 hit DON’T GO BREAKING MY HEART. The critically acclaimed and chart topping single was nominated for the ‘Pop Duo / Group Performance’ 2019 GRAMMY, and was BSB’s first hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in 10 years. Upon its release, the single went straight to #1 on iTunes Top Songs and Global charts and charted in over 22 countries.


In May 2019 the Backstreet Boys kicked off THE DNA WORLD TOUR – the group’s biggest arena tour in 18 years thanks to the global success of their #1 new album. The DNA WORLD TOUR has seen the group sell out arenas all over North America, Europe, Asia and South America.
