As long as you love them, the Backstreet Boys are going to keep coming back for more. And after three straight sold-out shows in Israel in 2015, the ’90s boy-band know that Israeli fans have plenty of love for them. So they’ll be back, this time for one show in the Rishon Lezion Live Park in April.

The five members of the Backstreet Boys – Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson, A.J. Mclean and Howie Dorough – will be returning to Israel to perform their long list of hits to a crowd of adoring fans.

The band was first supposed to perform in the Holy Land in 2014, but was forced to cancel when the Gaza war broke out. But they promised to reschedule, and kept that vow, returning in 2015 for the same three shows in the same location, the Ra’anana Ampitheater.

This time they’ve only announced one show, for April 22, but in a much bigger venue. And there’s no doubt that thousands will turn out to hear the band’s biggest hits, including “Quit Playing Games (With My Heart),” “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back),” “I Want It That Way,” “Shape of My Heart,” “The Call” and more.

The stop in Israel is part of the band’s 25th anniversary “Larger Than Life” tour, which will see them visit cities around the world before returning to their Las Vegas residency at the end of July.

The band is joining an impressive and growing lineup of summer acts hitting Israel this year, including Ozzy Osbourne, Ringo Starr, Alt-J, A-ha, Foreigner and more.

Tickets for the Backstreet Boys go on sale Tuesday morning for Amerian Express and Leumi Card holders, and at 6 p.m. for the rest of the country. They will range in price from NIS 215 for a grass seat or NIS 595 for the Golden Ring at
