The Basics: All About The Backstreet Boys’ ‘DNA’ World Tour

We are officially in the Backstreet Boys DNA era! Can you believe it?

With every new era comes new questions, new things to figure out logistically, and, of course, a new show, setlist, wardrobe, memorable moments, etc.

Just like we did with BSB Vegas, we’ll be with you every step of the way. This post will be segmented and updated as needed with all the links to posts about tour, any new things you need to know and answers to the questions we get the most of. We won’t have all of the answers immediately, but we’ll find them for you when we don’t!

As always, if you have a question we didn’t answer, please feel free to CONTACT US!

**FYI: This particularly post will remain spoiler free. We’re not too into posting major details about shows, but if we do, we’ll do it here. Consider this a safe space.**

– The above listed packages are the **ONLY** verified ways to meet the Backstreet Boys on the DNA World Tour.

– The Wonderful Union Meet and Greet **DOES NOT INCLUDE** a concert ticket.

– All Meet and Greet packages and upgrades include ONE professional photo with the Backstreet Boys, taken by their photographer, that will be uploaded to their website usually 24-72 hours later. You can find the photos here.

– Your photo with the Backstreet Boys will be individual – not in a group – unless you have a friend / friends you want in your photo. In that case, each person still has to have purchased a meet and greet. It is up to you who you want in your photo basically.

– Cell phones / selfies are not permitted. We would not suggest bringing gifts, props, etc.

– There are some cities that have begun to sell the DNA Circle tickets and Meet and Greet passes separately through Ticketmaster (or the ticket vendor). This is to sell previously unsold tickets — not added numbers. In these cities, people have the option to buy DNA Circle concert tickets (also known as the General Admission / Pit area on previous tours) if they want the spot during the show but don’t care about M&G or to buy the M&G pass but would rather sit elsewhere. **Check your city’s ticket vendor to see what’s available**

– Check in information (time, location, etc.) will be emailed to VIPers 24-48 hours prior to the show. If you purchased Meet and Greet through Wonderful Union, here is your resource for help: help.wonderfulunion.com If you purchased through Ticketmaster, contact their Customer Care for your region.

– IMPORTANT: VIP Meet and Greets are NON-TRANSFERABLE! Do not purchase them from someone else and do not purchase if you are not 100% you can attend. If you think a ticket might be a scam, contact us and we can likely help you out!

– Wonderful Union M&G is not available in all cities. It looks like the cities that are offering separate Circle tickets and M&G through Ticketmaster are not selling through WU. You can find a list here. You have to click ON the city / country on the website to access the WU VIP.

– Once VIP is sold out, it is SOLD OUT.

– Please note that the select cities in which VIP M&G through Wonderful Union is on sale is not favoritism for some fans over others or intentionally giving more opportunities. It all has to do with logistics, contracts, capacity, etc. In most places where WU is not offering M&G, Ticketmaster is offering the separate package. If neither is offered, it’s likely because they have reached capacity and are trying to keep the number of people attending M&G manageable.

– The VIP package through Ticketmaster that includes SIDE SEATING tickets does **NOT** include Meet and Greet.

– The concerts for Japan and Southeast Asia have a different VIP provider. More can be found here and through the Japan BSB Fan Club.

– VIP Meet and Greet upgrades for Hawaii dates can be found by clicking here > the date > VIP.

– Baylee Littrell will be opening for the Boys in North America. You can now purchase a VIP upgrade to meet him here. This VIP experience will be before the Backstreet Boys and will not interfere.

– Howie D. is selling a VIP event for certain dates on his website. These events have not been added or confirmed for North America, but they will also not interfere with BSB VIP.

++ The Show ++

– The show is 32 songs — more can be found here about the details that we do know!

– The show runs 1 hour and 50 minutes.

– You can exit the DNA Circle throughout the show. The entrance / exit is built into the stage. Trust us.

– There is plenty of space inside the DNA Circle and interactions are similar to that, if not better than, in the pit of IAWLT tour and Vegas.

– All dates and tickets for the tour can be found here.

– Everything about the Japan + Southeast Asia dates and tickets can be found here.

– As questions are asked and the shows begin, we will have more updates here.

++ FAQ ++

All of the questions that you ask and we answer via tweets or email, we’ll also address here.

++ Odds and Ends ++

– Be flexible! This is a new era, new album, new tour, new everything and everyone is learning. Things will inevitably change as things are worked out – it has happened with every tour thus far and will continue to happen. Don’t sabotage your own time.

– BE CAREFUL! With a tour as large as this, there are scalpers and scammers who are looking to trick fans into “a deal”. If the tickets are far overpriced or offered at a low price, verify that they are actual, real tickets. Again, keep in mind that the only M&G options are through Ticketmaster and Wonderful Union — you can not purchase them anywhere else.

– Afterparties, so far, have included Nick and Howie only and are being announced by the city. Make sure to turn on notifications for their socials and check nickcarter.net for updates on announcements! VIP and GA have been available with VIP including admission, meet and greet and a professional photo. Venues and dates are subject to change.

– NEW DNA World Tour Merch can be found here and here.

To The Backstreet Boys On Their ‘DNA’ Album Release…Thank You

The time has come.

DNA is here! And we are speechless.

Before we post any type of review or other post about it, we wanted to first write a thank you letter of sorts to the artists themselves – the Backstreet Boys.

To The Backstreet Boys on the day of your album release…

Thank you. Thank you for sticking around this long. Thank you for working on this album for SIX YEARS to make it the perfection that it is. It is honestly the most perfect sampling of different vibes, showcasing of vocals, and current sound mixed with classic Backstreet.

Thank you for making us wait (even when we kept asking).

We are so proud of the five of you. We are so proud of this album and we will be telling everyone we know about it in coming days (weeks, months, years?). We are endlessly proud to call ourselves Backstreet Boys because albums like this. DNA is an additional soundtrack to our lives and it might be the best chapter yet.

Thank you for continuing to create, continuing to push yourselves and the boundaries of what the world defines as the Backstreet Boys, and always becoming better in every way.

We all appreciate this album more than you all could ever know.

To Kevin…

Your vocals on this album are absolutely flawless. You can hear the soul you put into every lyric you’re singing on DNA and we’re thrilled to hear even more of it this round. Thank you for always telling us to be patient because it certainly paid off. We’re still so happy that you’re back.

To Howie…

THOSE SOLOS THOUGH! You have more than delivered on DNA, absolutely nailing every solo verse and harmony from beginning to end. Wow! We always knew you had it in you – we hear you kicking off those songs! This is honestly the best you have ever sounded and we can’t wait to hear you live. Thank you for sharing your beautiful vocals with us.

To Brian…

From the highest of high notes to the gentle vocal vibes that only you could land, your voice has always made our ears feel cozy and DNA is no exception. We have been rooting for you as you have found a new sound and boy, have you found it. Your heart is in everything that you sing and it translates to anyone listening. Thank you for working so hard to be the best that you can be – so passionate.

To AJ…

As always, you bring so much incredible vocal prowess to DNA. Your voice is instantly recognizable and exactly everything a Backstreet song needs to be complete. You are a constant fountain of raw talent that adds a little zest to every song on the album. Thank you for being the AJ we all know and love.

To Nick…

Nick. Carter. Your voice on this album is unlike anything we’ve heard before. From the beginning of Backstreet to DNA, this is the best you have ever sounded. There are so many dynamics and your determination to produce such a great sound has not gone unnoticed. We have chills. Thank you for being the best version of yourself that you can be. We’re all enjoying it more than you could imagine.
