In an Instagram live with People On Wednesday, band member Nick Carter expressed his excitement for the Las Vegas tour.

“We are extremely excited to get back to work, to start entertaining people again,” he began.

“We are so excited and proud of what we have and how everything is coming together. We feel that this is one of our best creations to date and that this creation deserves the best possible scenario and set up to succeed.

He continued, “With the current state of the world still limiting our travels and causing little things in these processes to take much longer, we have decided to wait until 2022 to release our Christmas album and will be canceling. thereafter our Las Vegas limited series. Christmas shows. Although we’re disappointed, we know it’s for the best, and we absolutely look forward to sharing the magic of this album with you all when the time is right! Carter concluded.

The tour was supposed to take place last year

In July 2021, the Backstreet Boys announced their 12 nights at Planet Hollywood’s Zappos Theater in Las Vegas with a Christmas-themed residency “A Very Backstreet Christmas Party”.

The show was to feature “their greatest hits, holiday favorites and new originals.”

“As the army cuddled up in their beds, and visions of BSB danced through their heads…We planned and we planned such a glorious show…” the group posted on Instagram at the era. “It’s time to tell you!

They added: “We just want you to know…A VERY BACKSTREET CHRISTMAS PARTY: our limited engagement in Las Vegas is coming November and December!!!”


At the time of the announcement, Dorough spoke to USA today of the tour. If ten years ago you had asked me to play in Vegas, I would have said, no, that’s where people go to retire at sunset and end their careers. But Celine (Dion), Britney (Spears), JLo (Jennifer Lopez) – they all recreated the thought of what people perceive from Vegas.

“We really wanted to play for our fans before the end of this year and we thought it was a great opportunity. We have two Christmas songs in our history and we were thinking of doing 12 shows – a small sample that could maybe happen every year. Another band member, Richard, chimed in.

“I think people coming out of this pandemic, we’ve all been through this dark time, so everyone wants to hang out and we just want to stick together and socialize and party. And Vegas is one of the best places to do it,” Carter added.
