The Backstreet Boys are currently on the North American leg of their DNA World Tour. During their Los Angeles Hollywood Bowl show, the singers brought out their children to perform their song “No Place.”

Most recently at their Toronto concert, BSB surprised the crowd when Drake joined them onstage to sing “I Want It That Way.”

In April, Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, AJ McLean, Brian Littrell and Kevin Richardson spoke with TODAY about being the “soundtrack” to people’s lives for almost 30 years.

“It’s just been an absolute dream to still be doing this almost 30 years later. It’s a testament to the music and it’s a major nod to the best fans a band like us could ask for,” McLean expressed. “It really is awesome to know that our music has stood the test of time and that we’re coming up on the big 3-0, which is just amazing. So thank you to all of our fans. And thank you to everyone that has stuck with us for 30 years. Hats off to all of you.”
