It’s been five long years since the Backstreet Boys last performed in Israel — and for local fans, it’s been a long wait.
This will be the third time in Israel for the beloved nineties band, which staged shows in Ra’anana in 2015 and in Rishon Lezion in 2018.
The boy-turned-man band will perform one show only in Israel, on May 13, returning to Rishon Lezion’s Live Park as part of its upcoming “#DNAWorldTour” that will bring it to Iceland, Africa, Southeast Asia and the Middle East, as well as Europe.
Shabbat-observant fans of the Backstreet Boys Israel Facebook page were concerned that the concert is starting at 7 p.m., the time listed on the ticket sales page, which is an hour before the end of the Sabbath, making it difficult to get to the concert in time.
But a public relations representative for the concert promoters, Live Nation Israel, responded that the doors will open at 7 p.m., and the concert will begin at 9:30 p.m., allowing Sabbath observers to make it to the concert on time.
The band’s 2018 Israel show sold out in four days. Tickets are on sale through Ticketmaster.
