Target Field in Minneapolis is one of only three venues in the country to host a stadium tour headlined by Florida Georgia Line this summer.

The country favorites will be joined by none other than the Backstreet Boys on the tour, as well as rapper/singer Nelly and country artist Chris Lane, as they take to the stage at the home of the Twins on July 29.

The visit to Minneapolis is sandwiched between two performances at Boston's Fenway Park and Chicago's Wrigley Field.

The tour was announced on Good Morning America and later confirmed by the Twins.

Ticket information is expected to be released later on Tuesday, and we'll update this story once it's been released.

The Pioneer Press reports both Nelly and the Backstreet Boys have appeared as guests on Florida Georgia Line songs, with Nelly a guest on the remix of the group's 2012 single "Cruise," while the Backstreet Boys collaborated with them on their recent hit, "God, Your Mama and Me."

FGL appeared in the Twin Cities in June 2015, when they opened for Luke Bryan at TCF Bank Stadium, the newspaper notes.

The Backstreet Boys were one of the biggest groups in the world in the mid-to-late '90s, setting the charts afire with singles including "Everybody," "I Want It That Way" and "Larger Than Life."

They recently started a residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, which Bustle called "so '90s-tastic it hurts."

Nelly meanwhile had a string of hits in the early 2000s, including "Ride Wit Me," "Hot in Herre" and "Dilemma" with Kelly Rowland, while Chris Lane has enjoyed recent success in the U.S. Country charts with "Fix" and "For Her."
