“I’ve known AJ as long as I’ve known my own band members. We’ve worked together in the past on one-off projects here and there but never had the opportunity to create something together,” Fatone said in a press release. “This tour gives us the chance to combine the best of both musical worlds.”

“I hope our fans are ready for a show that’ll take them on a journey through the magic of ‘NSync, Backstreet Boys, and everything-in-between,” Fatone added. “This show is all about fun and reminiscing, and we can’t wait to share this moment with audiences across the country.”

McLean also shared that he can’t wait to perform with Fatone.

“I’m so excited to head out for this round of dates with my friend Joey,” he said. “The perfect chance to listen to old favorites and share some special new songs that our loyal fans will be the first to hear.”
