The Backstreet Boys, whose songs include the worldwide hit single "I Want It That Way," will be performing in Israel in July, the Ra'anana municipality announced this week.

The concert by the U.S. boy band that rose to fame in the mid-1990s is scheduled to take place at Ra'anana's 8,000-seat amphitheater on July 29, said municipal spokesman Yaoz Sever.

Tickets will go on sale in the coming days, and will cost between 269 shekels ($78) and 995 shekels ($288).

They 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.
