It’s all happening, and if you miss it, you’ll be inconsolable. The Backstreet Boys just announced their Las Vegas residency at The Axis at Planet Hollywood resort & Casino. It will kick off on March 1. Get all the new details here.
After all those rumors, we can confirm — it’s actually happening! The Backstreet Boys officially announced they will begin an exclusive Las Vegas headlining residency show, “Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life,” at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino kicking off on March 1! Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson are back and we all know it’s going to be huge in Vegas.
“We’re going to call the show Larger Than Life, and we’re taking that theme and we’re going to run with it,” Kevin Richardson said in the press release. “What can you expect?” Brian Littrell added. “If you’ve ever been to a Backstreet Boys show… it’s going to be that on steroids.” New dad, Nick Carter, also added that they can’t wait to make the show “something you’ll never forget.” (Isn’t every show?)
“If it does really well, then I think that’ll open that door and then in future we’ll do it. So that’s definitely going to happen but we’re going to do a trial run first,” Nick told Entertainment Tonight in April, adding to expect “a very big and spectacular show.” Kevin also said that since they’re all fathers, it’ll be nice to be on a tour without the travel. “A Vegas residency, now that we’re all fathers, could be very convenient for us! We won’t have to travel so much.”
