LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Backstreet Boys are returning to Kentucky this summer for the DNA World Tour.

The group is making a stop at Rupp Arena July 27 before going to Ruoff Music Center in Noblesville, Indiana July 31.

 Last year, the Backstreet Boys surprised Down Syndrome of Louisville with a backstage meet and greet at their KFC Yum! Center stop after the group submitted a lip-sync video in hopes of meeting them.

Tickets for the shows go on sale beginning Feb. 14 at LiveNation.com or Ticketmaster.com.
