Backstreet’s Back, all right (even though they never really left). The beloved Backstreet Boys have been going strong for over 22 years, and they’ve just booked one of their biggest gigs to date: a Las Vegas residency.
The beloved boy band (man band?) will hit the Strip for a “trial residency” starting on March 1, 2017. They’ve booked 18 shows at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, which is also home to Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez’s respective, nostalgia-fueled residency shows. All five members of the group — Brian Littrell, Nick Carter, A.J. McLean, Kevin Richardson, and Howie Dorough — will be on hand for the spectacle, dubbed Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life, after their hit Millennium single.
In a statement on the band’s website, Littrell said, “If you’ve ever been to a Backstreet Boys show... it’s going to be that on steroids.” Richardson added, “We’re going to call the show Larger Than Life, and we’re taking that theme and we’re going to run with it.”
Tickets for the shows will start at $39, plus fees and taxes, and go on sale at 10 a.m. on October 1 through Ticketmaster. For more BSB goodness, check out our recent snack-focused chat with the guys.
