Arriving from Iceland's leg of their tour, the Backstreet Boys will make a stop in Egypt on 1 May, before continuing to India, UAE, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

The tour promoting their ninth studio album, DNA (2019), includes a total of 150 shows in the Americas, Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia and Australia.

It was first announced in 2019; but due to COVID-19 pandemic many of its segments were, however, modified.

In February 2023, the Backstreet Boys embarked on the second of the tour's eight legs, and one that will continue until the end of May.

The concert in Egypt will take place at ZED East, one of the luxury compounds located in New Cairo.

ORA, the company organising the event, announced the news, mentioning that "tickets will be released soon" via the event's partner Ticketsmarche.

For the time being, the American band's fans can make a pre-booking on the Ticketsmarche's website

Formed in 1993, the Backstreet Boys became the highest selling boy band of all time with 130 million records sold.

They reached the peak of their popularity during the 1990s and 2000s. Their last album from that period -- and their eighth studio album -- entitled In a World Like This was released in 2013.

Their latest album, entitled DNA, was released in 2019.
