Return of the Backstreet Boys for concerts in Vegas

The Backstreet Boys resume their DNA World Tour where they left off in 2020, starting with a four-show Colosseum reset that leads to the 29th anniversary of cousins ​​Brian Littrell and Kevin Richardson joining the vocal group. Howie Dorough, who co-founded BSB with AJ McLean in 1993, dubbed the Caesars Palace dates “Backstreet Boys 2.0” with “all the greatest hits and a bunch of bells and whistles” during a February interview with entertainment tonight.

The most pivotal act in boy band history has the daunting task of reinventing a Vegas headlining residency experience born in 2017. Backstreet Boys: larger than life the shows helped demonstrate that the era of Britney, Christina, NSYNC and Boyz II Men had become a dominant facet of Las Vegas entertainment.

The current buzz is about who will show up at which residence. Nick Carter, who cited having had to work on a few pandemic books before this engagement, teased to HEY that Spears would be a welcome guest, and made the hearts of the boy-banditas flutter when he mentioned the possibility of a Joey Fatone or Lance Bass moment on stage.
