Pauly D To Warm Up Tween-Turned-Adult Masses This Summer On Backstreet Boys Tour

Backstreet's back, alright, and they're bringing a few friends along for the ride. BSB are toasting to 20 years together (let's just forget Kevin's temporary departure in 2006 ever happened) in a world where relationships rarely make it past the 72-day mark, and have decided to celebrate the two-decade partnership with a summer tour, along with Jesse McCartney and our very own Pauly D!

Earlier today, Pauly shared the good news that the Boys offered our fave DJ one of the opener slots in an effort to bring a little "Jersey Shore" flavor to audiences. And with hits like "Back to Love," we know Pauly is going to rock everyone's socks off. "Excited to officially announce to you guys first.....I will be going on tour with @backstreetboys & @jessemccartney," he wrote to his Twitter followers. No word yet on whether Jay Sean will be joining them, but we can always dream!

The 24-city U.S. leg of the "In a World Like This" tour starts on August 2 in Chicago, so cross your fingers for a house remix of "Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)," and be sure to snag some tix when they go on sale this Friday!
