After all the tickets to the Backstreet Boys' concert for the Ra'anana Amphitheater on July 29 sold out in under 45 minutes, the concert's producers announced that they were organizing a second concert the next day at the same venue.

The announcement by the production company was accompanied by an impromptu video by the band. "We are so excited to play in your country for the very first time," band member Kevin Richardson said in the video. "And you guys were so excited that you sold out our first show in 45 minutes. So we're putting a second show up for sale."

The Backstreet Boys, the U.S. boy band that rose to fame in the mid-1990s with hits such as "I Want It That Way," will hold two concerts in the 8,000-seat venue. Tickets cost between 269 shekels ($78) and 995 shekels ($288).

The ticket sale for the second concert will begin at 10 A.M. this Tuesday.

The Backstreet Boys aren't the only big names set to put a smile on the faces of Israeli fans this summer. The Rolling Stones and Justin Timberlake are among the rock and pop icons also headed to the Holy Land.
