Backstreet’s back — and going to Las Vegas! HollywoodLife.com told you EXCLUSIVELY that the boy band was ‘exploring’ the idea of a residency, and now Nick confirmed the boys are headed to Vegas!
You might as well book your tickets to Las Vegas now! Nick Carter, 36, has confirmed the Backstreet Boys have signed on for a 9-show residency. It’s just a “trial run,” but the boys are definitely open to a more permanent stay in Vegas! Nick told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the band was ready to “shake things up” in Sin City, and now it’s really going to happen!
The Backstreet Boys have signed a 9-show deal with Live Nation as a trial run for a long-term residency, ET reports. “If it does really well, then I think that’ll open that door and then in future we’ll do it,” he told the outlet. “So that’s definitely going to happen but we’re going to do a trial run first.”
Nick also revealed that fans can expect “a very big and spectacular show.” The shows will include all five band members, and Kevin Richardson has loved the idea of a residency from the very beginning. “A Vegas residency, now that we’re all fathers, could be very convenient for us,” he told ET. “We won’t have to travel so much.”
Before the news was confirmed, we talked to Nick about a Vegas residency. “I think it’d be a lot of fun to have one place for us to go and shake things up out in Vegas!” he told us. “Not saying anything, but if anyone’s been to a BSB show, they know we bring the fire — and we have a lot of energy! It’d be awesome to light up Vegas!”
Nick is gearing up to welcome his first child with actress Lauren Kitt. The Backstreet Boys recently teamed up with other ’90s boy bands for the Syfy flick Dead 7. Stream the music of Backstreet Boys now!
