Backstreet Boy to open for Britney Spears

Britney Spears has snagged Backstreet Boy Howie Dorough to open shows on the upcoming South American leg of her “Femme Fatale” tour.

"I'm so excited that I'm going [to be] joining @britneyspears on several dates of the Femme Fatale tour!" Dorough tweeted on Monday. "Can't wait to see all my lovelies in Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia, and Venezuela!! VIP info will be coming next week."

The 5-date tour starts November 20 in La Plata, Argentina and wraps up in Caracas, Venezuela on November 28.

The hook-up is perfect timing for Howie, as he releases his first-ever solo album, “Back to Me,” on November 9 (Japan) and November 15 (worldwide).

Next year, Howie reconnects with the Backstreet Boys as they’ll tour Europe with NKOTB, with shows starting in April 2012.
