Delta Goodrem landed the gig of her life.
The Australian pop star announced on Saturday that she will be supporting legendary 90s boy band The Backstreet Boys on the North American leg of their DNA Word Tour.
‘OH MY GOD!! Joining the iconic @backstreetboys this summer on their #DNAWorldTour2022 in the US, kicking off tomorrow night @northislandamp in Chula Vista,” she wrote on Instagram, adding, “Beyond excited!!! Let’s go! We’ll see each other there.’
The news was also shared on The Backstreet Boys’ social media pages.
Delta recently completed her Australian Bridge Over Troubled Dreams Tour and received rave reviews for the set she performed at Bottle Rock Festival last week.
The Aussie hitmaker has previously opened for Andrea Bocelli and Michael Bolton in the US, but this will be the first time she’s toured the country in full.
Meanwhile, the Backstreet Boys will bring their DNA World Tour to Australia in February next year after delaying it twice due to the pandemic.

Her album Over Troubled Dreams reached number one on the ARIA charts in May last year.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph about the feat, the singer said when she heard the news: “I burst into tears, tears of joy”.
She added: “You’re not the new artist, you’ve been around for a while, but to see this record recognized and being a musician and an artist and then people logging on at work, it’s just awesome. .”
Delta, who played Nina Tucker on Neighbors, also paid tribute to her time on the popular TV show amid her shock.
“It really is the end of an era…the show has been a true school of the industry for so many people’s journeys including mine!” she wrote on Instagram.
She added, “The moment Nina first sang Born To Try stayed with me forever, the start of everything…”
