BACKSTREET’S BACK, ALRIGHT!

Backstreet Boys

Oh my God, we’re back again
Brothers, sisters, everybody sing
Gonna bring the flavor, show you how
Gotta question for you better answer now, yeah

– Everybody

Hey Las Vegas! Rock your body, yeah / Everybody, yeah / Rock your body right…
the Backstreet Boys are back alright! I’ve marked my calendar for Wednesday, March 1st, 2017 and any BSB fan should too, because the countdown has already begun for their residency at ph (that’s Planet Hollywood to you non Las Vegans)!

I can hardly contain myself right now, just the mere thought of laying my eyes on any one of the “Boys” let alone AJ…just gives me the “goosies” (thanks JLo for that Idolism)! The Backstreet Boys’ residency titled: “Larger Than Life” has this 90’s girl smitten all over again. It was just this past season 21 of Dancing With the Stars that I began my obsession for the second time around for all things BSB. You see, Nick Carter was a not only a contestant, he was without question the only true star not to mention the season’s finest dancer. Whether he sambaed, waltzed, or jitterbugged, Nick sashayed on the dance floor like Fred Astaire dancing on air. He was…perfect…a perfect 10.  If I would have been DWTS judge Bruno Tonioli, my comment would have been, “Your rumba is so hot, I need an ice bucket!” But, Nick was robbed of the Mirror Ball Trophy. Blatantly robbed, and it was wrong…oh so wrong. Guess who’s laughing all the way to the bank now? That’s right, Nick Carter…my 2nd favorite Backstreet Boy.

You see, I have to be brutally frank and honest…I like the “Bad Boys!” It’s true, show me a young stud with 5 o’clock shadow, sinewy muscles, a tattoo sleeve with puppy dog eyes and I’m gone. GONE, GONE, GONE (like The Girl on the Train)! AJ McLean, as any true BSB fan knows is the “Bad Boy” of the group, and quite honestly gave the edge that the band has always needed to avoid the stereotypical Tiger Beat teen idol crap. AJ, is Fronzie to Nick’s Postsie. And as we all know, every girl wants to be with the “Fonz”, leather coat and all ya’ll!

Now throw your hands up in the air
Wave them around like you just don’t care
If you wanna party let me hear you yell
Cuz we got it goin’ on again
Yeah

Confirming rumors swirling for months, the best-selling boy band of all time, with over 130 million albums sold worldwide, is heading to the Las Vegas Strip. The pop juggernaut Backstreet Boys announced they will begin an exclusive Las Vegas headlining residency show, “Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life,” inside The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino beginning Wednesday, March 1, 2017. Audiences will be captivated as Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson take the stage with a one-of-a-kind, over-the-top production made exclusively for the Vegas stage.

For 22 years, the Backstreet Boys, one of the most successful groups in music history, has continually delivered the finest pop music one has to offer, making them one of pop’s most influential performers. With countless #1s, record-setting tours, countless awards and worldwide sales in excess of 130 million, BSB has been recognized as the best-selling boy band in history. Las Vegas event planners are preparing for an onslaught of conventioneers to descend upon “The Strip” like locust on the Nile.

Everybody
Yeah
Rock your body
Yeah
Everybody
Rock your body right
Backstreet’s back, alright
Alright

So, step aside Brit Brit. Because, the boys are back in town…LARGER THAN LIFE. All you people can’t you see, can’t you see / How these boy’s love’s affecting my reality / Every time I’m down / They can make it right / And that makes this Las Vegas DMC larger than life. Believe me when I say, I want it that way.

You are, my fire,

Belinda
