Backstreet’s back. Damn right.

And this time, the best-selling boy band in history is bringing their star-powered vocals to Vegas.

“We’re going to call the show Larger Than Life, and we’re taking that theme and we’re going to run with it,” raves Kevin Richardson.

“What can you expect from the show? If you’ve ever been to a Backstreet Boys show, it’s going to be that on steroids,” Brian Littrell boasts.

“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,” Nick Carter promises.

Still not persuaded by the boys to hit the “Buy Now” button when tickets go on sale October 1?

Let these five chart toppers hook you, move you and lead you — all the way into Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino for the latest Las Vegas show beginning March 1, 2017.


1. “Everybody” Will Be There

Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean, Kevin Richardson — your aunt, your hall monitor from 8th grade, your coworkers, your guidance counselor from 9th grade, your dentist, your crush from 10th grade — pretty much everybody will be there. Don’t be the only friend on Facebook without a #TBT, #FBF or #AboutLastNight post featuring the fan favorites who’ve been rocking their bodies since the nascent ’90s.


2. You Could Be Singing “Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely”

You’ll probably be singing along to all the songs. However, if you miss out on this 18-date residency ‘being lonely’ will have special meaning for you. It will mean you, alone, roaming the Las Vegas Strip, belting out “Tell me why I can’t be there where you are…” on a loop as the shape of your heart takes the shape of a teardrop. And this is all because you didn’t join the above everybodies when they reserved their seats well before they sold out. General ticket prices start at just $42. “Quit Playing Games (With Your Credit Card),” and get some.

3. You Have to Go When The Girls Say “I Want It That Way”

So your idea of the consummate boy band is the Ramones? You don’t want that pop life. You’d rather be sedated. Even though you’re all about that punk strife, take one for the swooning team anyway. Let the fan girls have some fun harmonizing with the five guys who have sold more than 130 million records worldwide. Because no matter your musical tastes, missing this once-in-a-lifetime performance ain’t nothin’ but a mistake.


4. A Sin City Visit Would Be “Incomplete” Without BSB

You may have just left us, but we’re sure you’ll BRB now that BSB has announced their anticipated arrival slated for 2017. The boy-band kings have joined the headlining queens Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey to ensure our pop-infused dynasty remains cemented center Strip. Now all you must do is make sure experiencing these nostalgic numbers from the early aughts reigns supreme on your Vegas-visit bucket list.


5. This Production Will Be “Larger Than Life”

You heard the heartthrobs — this sonic spectacle will be Larger. Than. Life. Yes, you read that right. The show “on steroids” will be so powerful you’ll be able to hear it through your eyes, see it with your ears and feel it pulsating from the phone you have held up to record every magnetic moment. Yet, the promise “something that you’ll never forget,” may mean the show will be forever emblazoned in your mind — no pics (or videos) needed.
