Backstreet Boys concert chronology

The Never Gone Tour is the sixth headlining concert tour by American boy band, the Backstreet Boys. The tour was launched in support of their fifth studio album, Never Gone (2005). It is the last BSB tour with all five members of the group, as Kevin Richardson left the band shortly after the tour concluded in June the following year, until his return in 2012 (for the In a World Like This Tour 2013).[1]

The tour grossed an estimated $49.5 million within 79 tour dates.[citation needed]
