Talking about a 90’s throwback, the Backstreet Boys have just announced a trial residency in Vegas to launch their “Larger Than Life” show. The band has booked 18 shows telling their fans with their lyrics “Oh my God, We’re back again.”
The boy-band that made every teenager scream their lungs out on the 2000s is back in Vegas and even though they never left the scene, the band is promising a show like no other with all five members on stage, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter, A.J McLean, Kevin Richardson and Howie Dorough.
According to the “Boys,” the band will be playing for 18-shows in a row at The AXIS in Planet’s Hollywood Resort & Casino where the princess of pop Britney Spears and “Jenny from the block” also have a permanent show.
Backstreet’s back, alright
The Backstreet Boys have been in the pop-music industry for the past 22 years and with over 130 million albums sold they have been categorized as the biggest and bestselling boy band since The Beatles and who doesn’t remember them?
Now in their 30s the band continues to bring their fans a good show and the group, their music has grown to a more mature show. The Backstreet Boys went from top hits such as “I want it that way” “Quit playing games with my heart” and “Everybody” to more R&B and Pop Rock songs.
“We’ve grown up with our fans, all of our fans are older now, and they are bringing their kids to our shows now, so it’s a good feeling to still be around, I think that’s a testament to the music,” said Brian Littrell in a 2014 interview with The Times.
The band has remained relevant in the music industry with world tours, new hits and their documentary “Show’ Em What You’re Made Of,” however the news of a permanent show in the city that never sleeps marks a milestone.
Rumors of the Vegas show had been around the media for the past couple of months, as well as a reunion-concert between the boy band and the all-girl-favorite band from the 90s The Spice Girls.
The Boys announced through their website the new show and advised fans to be prepared for what they have to offer “We’re going to call the show Larger Than Life, and we’re taking that theme and going to run with it” said Richardson, while Littrell informed that it’s going to be a Backstreet Boys show “on steroids”.
The band couldn’t have chosen a better moment to announce their new show in Vegas, given that the 90’s era is suddenly running 2016, as Teen Vogue reports, Britney Spears is back in the music industry, Jennifer Lopez remains relevant, Justin Timberlake is on the top songs list and Full House is back.
The Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life show will begin to play in Las Vegas on March 1, 2017, but the tickets will start to sale as soon as October, starting at $39 plus fees and taxes on Ticketmaster.
