The newest Las Vegas residency is also the most anticipated headlining show of 2017. After months of rumors and waiting, the Backstreet Boys, the best-selling boy band of all-time with over 130 million albums sold worldwide, is on the Las Vegas Strip.
“Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life” debuted at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino last week and #BSBVegas has been the hottest ticket in town ever since. The group will perform just over a dozen times through July 1 and those lucky enough to get tickets will hear all the hits that made the Backstreet Boys one of the hottest pop groups of all-time.
Quit Playing Games with My Heart, All I Have to Give, As Long As You Love Me, Larger Than Life and nearly every other #1 hit from the Backstreet Boys’ 20 year career headline the over-the-top production made exclusively for the Vegas stage.
Because of the limited performances through the summer, prices are steep. Most tickets will run over $150 but for a nearly 100-minute show that wouldn’t disappoint us back when the Backstreet Boys were super popular and on TRL, and certainly doesn’t now, it could be worth it.
Sure, Backstreet might be a little older than they were back during the TRL days, Nick Carter is 37 and Kevin Richardson is 45. Nevertheless, Backstreet is back and I’m alright with that.
