The American boy-band Backstreet Boys, who enjoyed soaring popularity in the 1990s, are far from gone. In fact, they are back on tour and coming to Israel's Ra'anana amphitheater.

The band's Howie Dorough, A.J. McLean, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter and Kevin Richardson may never have been "gone," having just sold 130 million albums world-wide.

The popular boy-band has continued to produce albums with their last album "In a world like this" released just last year.

The Backstreet Boys are now mounting their assault on competing boy-band star Justin Timberlake from 'N Sync with a new world tour, also called "In a world like this."

The band hopes to fill Ra'anana amphitheater's 8,000 seats on July 29, 2014.

But the date selected by the boy-band will not please everyone in Israel. July 29, 2014 falls during the nine days before the fast of Tisha B'Av when observant Jews do not listen to live music.

Tickets for the show are currently selling between 269 NIS and 995 NIS for seats in the grandstands and places on the grass. VIP ticket pre-sales will open on the band's fan site on Friday, May 9 starting at 2 p.m. Information on ticket sales is available to the public at *2207.
