Los Angeles, CA – JANUARY 22, 2019 - BBMAK, Mark Barry, Christian Burns and Stephen McNally who reunited in 2018 after a 15-year hiatus have announced they will tour North America beginning in May in support of their as-yet-untitled brand new album. The tour, dubbed “Back Here” after their massive 1999 worldwide hit, will travel through the northeast into the midwest with dates in Boston, New York, Nashville & Austin, TX.

All tour dates go on-sale Friday, January 25 -

We are very busy in the studio putting the finishing touches to our third studio album. We are so thrilled to be hitting the road for a full tour in May since we absolutely loved our first few shows in November, and were blown away seeing all the fans come out after all those years away. We’re excited to get back on stage and play, as we have a special set of shows planned, which will include brand new BBMAK music. Our fans have really stood with us and we can’t wait for them to hear it!” said Ste, Mark & Christian

The multi-platinum selling English pop group has sold more than three million albums, and had hit singles worldwide between 1999 and 2003, when they disbanded.

Best known for their self-penned infectious guitar driven hits “Back Here,” “Out of My Heart“ and “The Ghost of You and Me,” BBMAK was one of the few bands from that genre to play their own instruments. Billboard Magazine recently named “Back Here” the 9th Greatest Boy Band Song of All Time.  See here:
