Orlando natives Backstreet Boys released their latest album in October of last year, entitled Unbreakable on Jive Records. It is their first as a foursome and their sixth studio album. It is the follow up to their Never Gone album, which came out three years ago and is the main focus of the 45-date world tour, which began this past February.
The North American leg of the tour begins on the 30th of July in St. John's, Newfoundland, and concludes on the 6th of September in Seattle, Washington. As early as next spring, the Backstreet Boys hope to start recording new material for their next LP, though A.J. Mclean will be making his solo album debut before that.
The band is now made up of Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and A.J. McLean since Kevin Richardson left the Backstreet Boys in 2006. Richard went on to pursue other interests and is currently working on the soundtrack of an animated motion picture called The Spirit Bear that is supposed to be released this year.
The 2008 "Unbreakable World Tour" will see the four remaining members of the Backstreet Boys come to North America in late summer of this year after finishing a few dates in Sun City, South Africa in June. The Canadian dates for the Backstreet Boys' "Unbreakable" tour are:
