The Backstreet Boys are definitely back with an official residency at Las Vegas? The AXIS Theater at Planet Hollywood. The Grammy-nominated band announced that concerts are slated for March and June 2017.
With big plans for the production, the boy band promises a ?mind-blowing? show, which will feature the group?s greatest hits as Everybody (Backstreet?s Back) and I Want it That Way. Brian Litrell said in an interview with E! News, ?What can you expect? If you?ve ever been to a Backstreet Boys show?it?s going to be that on steroids.?
According to AJ McLean, Britney Spears influenced the band?s final decision. When McLean and Kevin Richardson went to see the pop star?s own Vegas Piece of Me show, they asked her a lot of questions. Spears shared that although it?s a lot of hard work, it?s easy than being on tour because she gets to be with her family.
?She literally said, ?This is the best job ever!?,? shared Mc Lean.
Larger than life
According to Mc Lean, the band will be incorporating the biggest elements from all of their biggest tours and shows. Since the city is all about live shows and being over-the-top, they are set to do the biggest show they?ve ever done in 24 years.
The show will be called Larger Than Life and will focus on their previous hits rather than music from the band?s forthcoming 10th album. It will be a throwback extravaganza.
Fans can also expect a little eye-candy as Mc Lean reveals that since he?s in the best shape he?s been, he might be performing shirtless.
Aside from Britney Spears, the Axis Theater in Planet Hollywood also plays host to Jennifer Lopez?s All I Have and Lionel Richie?s All The Hits. Tickets to the Backstreet Boys Larger Than Life show will go on sale beginning October 1. Get your tickets here.
