They've already made their return with their first studio album in five years, Never Gone, and the Backstreet Boys are now ready to revisit the place where they truly shine: stadiums. The '90s boy band will make twenty-something women turn readily back into teenagers with a full-fledged tour across North America, and BSB haven't forgotten those up in Canada.
According to House of Blues (hob.ca), the Backstreet Boys have already pencilled in one Toronto date in early August and three other Ontario stops for early September. Kitchener, London, and Ottawa are all on the map, and it can be expected that more Canadian dates will be getting the confirmation stamp in a short time.
Although not technically "official," pollstar.com is listing five other stops north of the 49th parallel for the Boys: two in British Columbia, and one each in Alberta, Manitoba, and Quebec. Once the Backstreet Boys wrap up their tour of North America at the end of September, they'll be heading back to the place where it all began for them: Europe.
