Backstreet’s back all right! (in Israel)
The best boy band of the ’90s is set to tour the Holy Land this summer, Haaretz reports. Time to dust off your scrunchies and snap bracelets.
Nick, A.J., Kevin, Brian and Howie will be performing in front of an adoring crowd of 8,000 in Ra’anana on July 29. Tickets go on sale soon and are said to cost between 269 shekels ($78) and 995 shekels ($288).
If you miss out thought, you’ve still got options. Israel’s got quite a line-up this summer: The Rolling Stones and Justin Timberlake are also set to perform.
Time to dust off your scrunchies and bust out the body glitter.
