The Backstreet Boys Are Coming to Israel

As if summer in Israel wasn't already exciting enough - after all, Justin Timberlake, Rolling Stones, and Neil Young are all confirmed to play this summer, plus Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and Beyonce are all rumored - now the creme de la 90's creme have announced that they'll make a trip to the Holy Land this summer.

That's right, the Backstreet Boys are heading to Israel.

The world's most successful boy band EVER (sorry NSYNC) will perform at the Raanana Amphitheater on July 29th, in a once-in-a-lifetime performance, as part of the In A World Like This tour, named after their last album - yes they are still making music - which came out last year.

Since 1993, the likes of Nick Carter, AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and Kevin Richardson still enjoy fame, though admittedly, more in the United States than anywhere else.

Concerning record sales, the group's sold over 130 million albums which have included some of the finest pop songs known to the 90's, including "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)," "As long As You Love Me," "Get Down," and more.

Book your ticket to Israel today (unless you're already there). It's poised to be a great summer.
