Backstreet Boys singer Howie Dorough took to Instagram on Tuesday to marvel about climbing the famed Masada fortress with his band during their visit to Israel, where they will perform this week for the first time.

The group’s second day of sightseeing in the Jewish state included the Masada hike, and taking a mud bath at the Dead Sea. A picture from the band’s official Twitter page shows the five singers covered in mud.

While relaxing in the Dead Sea, Dorough said, “I even enjoyed reading a local tabloid newspaper with a glass of wine of course.” On Monday, the Backstreet Boys rode Segways through the northern port town of Jaffa and stopped by St. Peter’s Cathedral.

The band arrived in Israel on Sunday and is scheduled to give three performances at the Ra’anana Amphitheatre on May 19-21. Before arriving in Israel, Dorough said he was, “excited to get there as this is our first time to come and perform for our fans that have been patiently waiting over 20 years for us.”

The Backstreet Boys were previously set to perform in Israel last July but canceled their three sold-out concerts due to the raging Israel-Hamas conflict at the time.

    I waste my time looking at algemiener
    and this author shiryn.
    It goes from stupid to worse.
    Backstreet boys is not even in the ‘unimportant file’.
    I waste my time reading the other authors like ben starr and boteach not a rabbi.
    This is my own fault.
    I scan the few good ALGEMIENER writers to this.
    I guess this is the reason the picture of shiryn shows her looking DOWN AT THE DESK.
    She knows she is wasting our free time to read her stuff.
    Walmart is looking for summertime part time help shiryn…if you’re lucking maybe one of the backstreet boys will shop there

      I’ve never read her stuff, but thanks for pointing it out – she’s good. I would also recommend drinking less coffee and working out your severe severe severe internal issues before you get a heart attack.
