How are the Backstreet Boys going to let Valetine’s Day week pass without showing you guys a little love?

The grown-up boy band has announced a new batch of North American tour dates, and it’s coming to the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa on Sept. 27. Tickets start at $39 and go on sale Friday, and as the Boys’ website puts it, “what better Valentine’s Day gift could you ask for?”

This will be the Backstreet Boys’ first Tampa concert since 2013, but they certainly have history here. They were founded in Orlando, but one of their members, Nick Carter, hails from the Tampa Bay area. At their peak, they headlined multiple nights at the old Ice Palace and even a show at Tropicana Field back in 2000. And in 2001, they sang the national anthem at the Super Bowl at Raymond James Stadium.

So while this is one of three tour dates they have coming up in Florida (the other two are in Jacksonville and West Palm Beach), it might feel just a little more special than the others. (Or maybe that’s just the Valentine’s love in the air.)
