Backstreet Boys Make Concert Announcement on 'GMA'

The Backstreet Boys are back, alright.

The boy band announced on " Good Morning America" today that it will be bringing its world tour back to North America in May.

The band will kick off the U.S. and Canada leg of its "In a World Like This" tour May 3 in Moncton, New Brunswick, and will make its first appearance in the U.S. on May 22 in Seattle.

It will also be making several stops in California May 24 through 29, hitting Vegas at the end of the month on May 30 and 31 and then hopping all over in June, making stops across the country from Albuquerque, N.M., on June 2 to Chicago on June 11 and everywhere in between.

The shows will feature not only the five original band members - Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson - but also a special guest, singer Avril Lavigne.

The band members said in a taped segment from Norway, where they are currently on tour, that they decided to add the additional North American tour dates because of "overwhelming demand on Facebook and Twitter."

The band released its most recent album, "In a World Like This," in July.

The North American leg of the tour will end June 22 in Wantagh, N.Y.

Tickets go on sale Friday, March 21.

More information and the full list of tour dates are available at the band's website,
