The Backstreet Boys have scheduled a second performance in Israel after tickets to their first show were sold out.

Eight thousand tickets offered earlier this month to the 1990s American boy band’s scheduled July 29 show, at the Ra’anana amphitheater, were snapped up in under two hours.

Organizers on Sunday announced a second performance on July 30 at the same venue.

Ticket prices for the second concert are to start at NIS 269 ($77), the same as the first show, and will go up to NIS 359-995 ($104-287).

The Boys, Howie Dorough, A.J. McLean, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter and Kevin Richardson, are celebrating 21 years together with a world tour, and recently released a new album, “In A World Like This.”

Pop star Avril Lavigne is also joining them during the North American part of the tour.

The Backstreet Boys began in performing in Flordia 1993 and went on to become one the biggest boy bands of the decade. From 2001 to 2003 the band went through a breakup but then got back together in 2005.
