Backstreet Boys Finally Announce Las Vegas Residency for 2017
By Sophie Schillaci
Backstreet's back... again!
Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson are officially headed to Planet Hollywood's The Axis Theater in Las Vegas for a residency, kicking off in March and June of 2017.
"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 in a statement issued Friday.
"If you’ve ever been to a Backstreet Boys show," Littrell added, "it’s going to be that on steroids."
Tickets for Larger Than Life go on sale beginning Oct. 1, with the first shows slated for March and June 2017. You can see a complete list of dates here.
"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," Carter also said in the statement.
The hitmakers are in good company! The Axis Theater currently plays host to Britney Spears' hit Piece of Me show. In fact, Richardson recently told ET that all of BSB had the chance to take in one of Spears' performances at the venue and chat with their longtime colleague about the experience.
"It seemed really convenient for the family!" he said in April. "A Vegas residency, now that we're all fathers, could be very convenient for us… We won't have to travel so much."
