The Backstreet Boys announced today that they will play WaMu Theater in Seattle with Avril Lavigne on May 22. It's part of their In A World Like This tour. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on March 21.
The stop, and several others announced today, represent a tour extension for BSB. They are proving that 2013 was more than just a fluke. Some of their concerts last summer reached 16,000 per night.
BSB played the Tacoma Dome in July, 2011 with New Kids on the Block.
