:: Spotlight :: Backstreet Boys are back - at Las Vegas

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

Fan-favourite boy band of the 2000s, The Backstreet Boys, are returning to the stage to entertain fans with a residency in Las Vegas. The show Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life, will feature heartthrobs Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson inside the AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino beginning March 1, 2017. Tickets will go on sale to the public on October 1.

“We're going to call the show Larger Than Life, and we're taking that theme and we're going to run with it,” Richardson said. “What can you expect?” Littrell asks, “If you've ever been to a Backstreet Boys show… it's going to be that on steroids.” Carter added, “We're excited to bring our experience from being a touring act with all of our hits to Vegas, so that it becomes something that you'll never forget.”

Fans have been on the edge of their seat when it came to BSB possibly going back on tour, especially when rumours claimed they'd be teaming up with—wait for it—The Spice Girls. Speculation surrounding a possible joint venture hit the Internet late last year.

Dates for Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life are as follows:

March 2017: 1, 3, 4, 8, 10, 11, 15, 17, 18
June 2017: 14, 16, 17, 21, 23, 24, 28, 30
July 2017: 1

General ticket prices begin at $US 39, plus applicable tax and fees, and VIP packages and Meet & Greets will also be available. All shows begin at 9.00pm. For more information for on the show and Meet & Greets, visit here
