After seven years on hiatus, Big Time Rush is making a big time comeback.

The boy band, who launched to fame on their 2009 to 2013 Nickelodeon show of the same name, announced on its official Twitter account Monday that the band will perform two upcoming shows.

"WE ARE BACK!" the tweet read. "It’s been a minute, but we couldn’t be more excited to see you! Lets make up for lost time."

The band will play a show on Dec. 15 at the Chicago Theater and on Dec. 18 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York. Fans can sign up for first access to pre-sale tickets on Big Time Rush's website.

Along with the tour dates, the band tweeted a video offering playful updates on what each of its four members have been up to.

"It's 2021," says a voiceover. "The people of the world are ready for a comeback of epic proportions."
