Backstreet Boys to go on 20th anniversary tour

The Backstreet Boys get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on April 22, 2013, in Hollywood, Calif. Getty

The members of the Backstreet Boys will be celebrating their 20th anniversary with a summer tour that gets under way in Chicago on Aug. 2 and continues through early September. It's hard to believe these guys have been around long enough to go on an anniversary tour. But the truth is, "Quit Playing Games (with My Heart)" was on the radio charts way back in 1996.

Tour support will be provided by pop singer Jesse McCartney and DJ Pauly D of "Jersey Shore" fame. Go here for a complete list of tour dates. Tickets go on sale Friday.

The tour coincides with the boy band celebrating two decades in music. The guys recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and previewed a new album. There's also a documentary in the works about the band.
