Backstreet Boys just gave their fans a very important update about touring.

The pop group, who is currently performing on the European leg of their DNA World Tour, said they will continue touring until they “physically can’t do it anymore,” according to a recent conversation with PEOPLE.

“The music combined with the dancing and the singing live, we’re the last of our kind, in a sense,” BSB member Nick Carter told the outlet. “So it’s important that every single time we hit that stage, we leave people happy, with a feeling of nostalgia.”

“There’s definitely certain moves that we’ve taken out of the show, where we drop on our knees or we do kip-ups, or any kind of gymnast type things that you physically can’t do anymore,” BSB member AJ McLean added. “Because we’re showmen, because we’re performers first, and singers, we love to put on a great show. And we’re going to continue to dance and do what we do until we physically can’t do it anymore.”

In addition to touring, the band, which formed in 1993, plans to keep making music. The Backstreet Boys just released their latest album, A Very Backstreet Christmas on Oct. 14, also according to PEOPLE. The album features 13 tracks, including a variety of familiar favorites as well as three original songs co-written by the band.

“We love what we do, and hopefully this Christmas album stands the test of time,” McLean said of BSB’s latest release.

As for other exciting plans, the band doesn’t rule out a Las Vegas residency, putting out another full-length album, or even releasing a few singles.

“The sky’s the limit,” McLean told PEOPLE.

The Backstreet Boys kicked off their DNA World Tour on Jul. 14 in New Jersey. The band’s 32-song setlist included their most notable hits, such as “I Want It That Way,” “As Long As You Love Me,” “Incomplete,” “The Call,” “Quit Playing Games (With My Heart),” and others. The band also performed songs from their latest album, DNA.

The tour which features support from Australian singer, Delta Goodrem, continues through March 2023, with stops in Brazil and Australia.
