The Backstreet Boys rocked Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Tuesday night with a show that featured a special surprise for Pacers fans. The iconic boy band is celebrating 26 years of music with their millions of devoted fans while on their DNA World Tour.

The quintet of Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean, and Kevin Richardson had the capacity crowd at The Fieldhouse on its feet throughout Tuesday's concert, performing classic hits like "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)" and "I Want It That Way" along with new songs off their latest studio album, "DNA."

After finishing their main setlist, the group returned to the stage for an encore wearing custom Pacers jerseys with the number 19 and each respective band member's last name on the back. They then closed out the night with recent single "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" and classic hit "Larger Than Life."

As Richardson noted earlier in Tuesday's show, the Backstreet Boys have a history at The Fieldhouse. They originally visited the venue for two shows on their Into the Millenium Tour on March 10 and 11, 2000. Footage from those shows was used to make a special VHS tape from the tour as well as the music video for the song "The One," which actually opens with a time-lapse of The Fieldhouse being transformed from the Pacers court to the Backstreet Boys' stage.

The group also visited Bankers Life Fieldhouse in 2017 for Jingle Jam.
