Been To A #BSBVegas Afterparty? Share Your Experience!

We’ve been to Backstreet Boys afterparties on tour, but the Las Vegas afterparties at Chateau Night Club are on a whole other level! With many more to come, we don’t want anyone to miss out on this hang-with-the-boys experience.

If you’ve been to an afterparty during the Backstreet Boys’ Larger Than Life run, we want to hear from you. Fill out the form below to be included in an upcoming post. Tell us all the juicy details, any tips you may have learned, and how much fun you had!

Backstreet Dads: Some Of The Sweetest Things The Backstreet Boys Have Said About Fatherhood

A few years ago, we did a Father’s Day series of posts on each Backstreet Boy (except for Nick because we’re not psychics all the time 😉 ). This year, we decided to keep it simple and post a few of the sweetest words and advice that Kevin, Howie, AJ, Brian and Nick have shared about their children and about being fathers. If this doesn’t melt you, we don’t know what will!

AJ_WordsBrian_WordsHowie_WordsKevin_WordsNick_Words

We’ve written multiple times about how much we love seeing these Boys with their children, so we won’t go back into it. All we have to say is that we are SO proud of the fathers that each of these men have become and we can’t wait to watch Maxwell, Mason, Lyric, Ava, Baylee, Holden, James and Odin grow up and become everything their parents work so hard to instill in them.

Shout out to our own fathers who have taught us so many things, but also bought us Backstreet Boys tickets, listened to their music with us, and driven us to concerts before we could do for ourselves.

Last but not least, the fathers who are husbands of fans, those who keep the kids on the weekends we need a roadtrip with the girls, the times we NEED to cruise with the Backstreet Boys, and those who find a sitter and come along for the ride – you the real MVP!

Happy Father’s Day!

22 Backstreet Boys Tweets You Might Have Missed From iHeartRadio #iHeartSummer17

iHeartSummer ’17 was one for the books! From Miley Cyrus to 5th Harmony to THE BACKSTREET BOYS, Miami was on FIRE tonight. Of course, we’re only here to talk about our fab five, whose day started out at a volleyball game (champs!). We found out Kevin is an amazing cheerleader (duh), Brian is an incredible volleyball player (surprise, surprise), and AJ, Nick and Howie are the best sideliners you could ask for!

Oh, and the Boys shut down yet another summer festival… because really, who could follow them?

While there are some epic photos and tweets from iHeartSummer, we took the liberty of gathering all of the ones from iHeartRadio into one place for your enjoyment, amusement, and informational needs. Enjoy! We did.

Fans, It’s Time To Celebrate… Our Backstreet Boys and Each Other

Fan-mily,

Wow, wow, wow! What a year 2017 has been for the Backstreet Boys and it’s not even halfway over.

There’s festivals.

There’s TV appearances.

There’s LAS VEGAS.

There’s the Smooth tour.

There’s a cruise.

There’s an upcoming world tour.

There’s a buzz in the air.

There’s a whole lot of love for the Backstreet Boys.

So why are we not all celebrating it?

We’re so thrilled that Brian, AJ, Nick, Kevin, and Howie are back on the scene in a very big way. We’re so excited for all the things that have happened and all the things that are yet to come. We’re so happy for every fan that can participate in any event and we’re anxious for fans that are waiting for their turn – because we know that good things come to those who wait.

We’re simply asking that you join us in celebrating.

We know it’s easy to get bummed out if you can’t go to something or events are simply too far, too expensive, etc. We also know that happiness is a choice and that looking forward helps immensely. We 1000% believe that the Backstreet Boys are doing what they can to reach everyone worldwide and trying to give everyone more opportunities to connect — we hope you do too.

The Backstreet Boys aren’t going anywhere.

They’ve proven time and time again that they do what they can for us.

After 24 years, they’ve been coming FOR. US.

This year has been H U G E for them and it’s time that we’re there for them. If not physically, supportive. Slow down on asking them what else they can do for us all the time and let them know how excited you are for them and what’s to come.

Give them time. Let them breathe. They’ll make their way back.

Celebrate other fans.

We completely understand feeling left out, but it’s going to be alright – we promise. But please, please try being positive. Be happy for your friends and mean it. Don’t focus on what you can’t do, but what you can (like text your people the whole time they’re at an event and ask for a play by play).

We are making a conscience effort to be inclusive of all fans all over the world – to tweet and post and write to bring everyone together and make everyone feel like they’re at an event. We hear you, we read everything you send in, and we appreciate every one of you. We don’t appreciate knocking of other fans or the Boys themselves.

BOTTOM LINE: We know how powerful Backstreet fans can be when we all work together positively. We know how it feels when we all band together to work toward a common cause.

Let’s celebrate Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ and Nick.

Let’s celebrate each other.

Let’s enjoy this time. Let’s think about each other. Let’s be helpful to each other. Let’s be kind. Let’s be creative, positive, and powerful without bringing each other down.

Believe in ourselves and believe in them. Believe that really great things are happening and the best is yet to come.

We do.

XOXO.

 

What It’s Really Like To Meet The Backstreet Boys

A few weeks ago, a video went viral among fans with a young lady named Jessie receiving tickets for KTUphoria to see the Backstreet Boys. Fans shared it on every social media platform possible, hoping to catch the eye of a Boy or a member of their team to get Jessie to receive every fan’s ultimate goal….

….To meet Kevin, Brian, AJ, Howie and Nick.

It wasn’t because Jessie’s video had already gained attention by the time fans saw it. It wasn’t because she has Down Syndrome. It was because every fan that watched that video knew exactly how she felt.

We know how it feels to see these Boys for the first time. We know how it is to be handed those tickets. While for many of us, it was a long time ago, people like Jessie remind us what it’s like to feel that kind of euphoria – to simply be thrilled with just a set of tickets.

The video made it’s way to AJ and Kevin who retweeted it and invited Jessie to meet and greet. On Saturday and Sunday, the videos of Jessie’s meet and greet circulated  quickly. We were all in tears. We were all in our feels.

We were reminded why we love these Boys.

We were reminded how it feels to meet them for the first time.

We were reminded that, at the end of the day, we need to stop getting so caught up in the frills and we need to get back to that magic.

If you ask any of us what it’s like to meet the Backstreet Boys, the first words that will probably come to mind are that “it depends”, “expensive”, “rushed”, and more.

Sometimes we spend so much time planning for the meet and greet and concentrating on everything we didn’t say, get, etc. afterward that we forget about those 2-3 minutes that we had everything.

If we’re being completely honest, we’d tell you that meeting the Backstreet Boys is everything we ever dreamed of when we were 10, 11, 12 years old.

We’d tell you that Kevin, Brian, Howie, AJ and Nick are five of the kindest men you’ll ever meet.

We’d tell you that there isn’t one time that they haven’t welcomed us with open arms, again and again, even after 200 other fans.

We’d tell you that they try to listen to everything we say and everything we don’t when we’re too choked up.

We’d tell you that we get butterflies everytime, just like the first time.

We’d tell you that Kevin is sincere about every word he says (and you will hang on those words).

We’d tell you that if you’re nervous, Brian will put you at ease.

We’d tell you that AJ will talk to you like your old friends.

We’d tell you that Howie really is the sweetest.

We’d tell you that Nick’s smile is even better in person.

We’d tell you that every emotion we had when we saw them for the first time comes rushing back.

We’d tell you that we’re mad at ourselves everytime for not saying everything we wanted to say.

We’d tell you that every minute we spent voting for their videos on MTV, hanging their posters, begging our parents to let us stay home to watch them, following them around world was 100% worth it because after all these years, they’re still giving us something to believe in.

We’d tell you that everytime we meet the Backstreet Boys… it feels like coming home.

From fans around the world, we’re so happy that you finally got to feel the magic, Jessie. We thank YOU for reminding us how lucky we are, how lucky we’ve been, and what an amazing group of guys our Backstreet Boys really are. For all of us that couldn’t be at KTUphoria this weekend, thank you for sharing your moment with us. ❤

14 People Who Surprised Fans With Backstreet Boys Themed Gifts

Because the Backstreet Boys have been together for 20+ years, most of us have been fans for quite a long time. What this means is that more often than not, if the Boys are in town, on TV, in the news, turning around twice in the presence of our friends and family, they’re going to tell us about it.

Sometimes, though, those closest to us have done the kindest Backstreet-themed things for us, even if they’re not fans themselves. We gave you an opportunity a few weeks ago to tell us about the best BSB surprises you’ve ever received and give a shout out to those who have done these things for you.

We must say, we are very impressed (and super jealous)!

“My friend, Ruthie, who I met at the This Is Us tour in 2010, bought me VIP and a flight to see Backstreet Boys and Florida Georgia line in Chicago in August to celebrate my up and coming wedding. It was so sweet of her and I’m super excited to make these new memories with her.” – Brittany Nicole

“I know it’s not the typical friend story. When I was younger I had an older couple that was friends with my family. Anyways they are like another set of parents to me. But long story short. They were nice enough to invite me to their house and watch the “Welcome home New Years concert back in the day. They had bought my tickets to both the Millennium tour and Black & Blue tour. I’m so grateful that have a allowed a teenage girl to live out some of her dreams and see her idols in person!” – Melissa Wiggins

“We knew a couple visiting Florida from Vancouver, whom we’d first met less than a year earlier on the first BSB cruise, so we invited them to stay with us. The wife and I were going to see the NKOTBSB show while our men hung out. When I got out of work the day they arrived, I parked in my garage and saw a piece of paper taped to the door to the house. They had surprised me with a gold VIP for the show! It was a very generous gift, and they said it was to thank us for allowing them to stay at our house. It was an amazing show and experience I’ll never forget!” – Sandra

“In 2014, my brother threw me a BSB themed surprise birthday party. It was truely a surprise! He went through all my BSB stuff and took posters and all. My birthday cake even included the first picture I took with Howie! So much fun. When I walked into my parents house they all yelled surprise and Backstreets back started playing! It was awesome and so funny at the same time. I have some cool pictures to share if you want to see.” – Yadachi Porto

“I meet Andie before the 2014 cruise. Since then we have traveled near and far for many Backstreet events. Last November she sent me a text asking what I was doing the weekend of March 10/11. I said nothing and she surprised me with tickets to both concert dates in Vegas. She was like Merry Christmas and Happy Early Birthday! I was completely shocked. We are always thinking of ways to surprise each other and this was over the top! I’m thankful for our friendship and was completely overwhelmed by her gesture.” – Ashley Robinson

“In 2011, for the NKOTBSB tour, I had planned to do my first real VIP with my friends in Orlando, but my mom had gotten sick and I lost my concert photography job due to cutbacks and wasn’t able to afford it. Thankfully my friend Sarah and several other friends got together and for my birthday (since the concert was 10 days later), got me a Gold VIP. One of the nicest things anybody has done for me!” – Karah-Leigh

“My BSB sister Elin Jakobsen has given me very cool gifts. I’m a Brian girl. The last gift was a T-shirt saying: ‘It’s a Brian thing. You wouldn’t understand.’ And for my 40th Birthday party, she gave me the Show’Em movie and a beautiful heartfelt letter with a picture of shirtless Brian from the Show’em music video.” – Sylvi-Ann Haugen

“My best friend invited me to a “brides day” before I got married. It was just about the the two of us – a walk down on memory Lane. After a whole day of fun girl activities we sat down and watched old concert tapes all day. She always liked the boys but was not a huge fan and at that time my fangirl was pretty much sleeping – but that day? It got me hooked all over again. So much that I made a Journey song to my wedding song (there are these old concert recordings where Nick sings ‘Open Arms’).” – Jessica

“My friends threw me a BSB themed birthday party. There were cups that said BSB, cake had BSB written on it, BSB decorations and I even had a BSB birthday crown. It was awesome.” – Noora

“When I was 13, my friend Elsbeth surprised me with an invitation to go with her to a Backstreet Boys concert. Into the Millennium tour. This was my first concert ever and the boys just stole my heart immediately. So, thank you Elsbeth for taking me. It changed my life.” – Nele

“It’s my Godfather who did something awesome for me. I was in 7th or 8th grade. He told me for every A I got in my report card, he would give me $100. Little did he know, I was a straight A student  When he realized he would owe me like $1000, he called a friend who called a friend who called a friend, and surprised me with 3rd row floor tickets for the next Bsckstreet Boys concert ️It was the first time I got that close at the time.” – Anne

“My best friend Shiran made me for my birthday a book that called ‘Once Upon A Backstreet Time’. Inside the book there are all the experiences that relate to the Backstreet (shows, tweets, meet and greet, cruise, after party etc.).” – Efrat

“One of my really close friends, who’s basically like family, was supposed to go to the IAWLT tour with me in 8/13. We had accidentally purchased tickets on different days. We just ignored it because there were other people coming to both shows anyway, so days/weeks pass, and she calls me to tell me she can’t make it because of an emergency. So she gave me the ticket to my VERY first BSB show EVER! And, I got to see them TWICE that weekend, and at AGT (the two shows were in Jersey.) THANKS YIRIA!” – Deyanira Santana

“My best friend, Jeff, told me he had a surprise for me that would make me love the boys even more. I had no idea what it could be. When I saw him next he handed me a clear container with all the action figures from Burger King in it! I squealed and fangirled and laughed. He said “wait there’s more!” And then his mom came in with something big concealed by a blanket, when she removed the blanket it was a framed poster from the millennium era. Then I noticed the signatures and I legit screamed. Apparently his other best friend was at a garage sale, saw the stuff and told Jeff about it knowing I loved bsb so he bought them and Jeff paid him back. The poster is hanging on my wall as a reminder of how awesome my best friend is.” – Dani
