It promises to be a very emotive Games after the world has waited an extra year to experience what promises to be a spectacular event.

We’re waiting with bated breath for more vocal harmonies from the 90s pop gods Backstreet Boys, who are back on tour in 2021. Tens of thousands of fans missed out on a chance to see them in the DNA World Tour in 2019, so next year marks the perfect opportunity for 30-somethings to catch a glimpse of Nick Carter and co. once more.
