- Getting to hang out with your friend, Nick Carter.
Forget everything you thought you knew about “VIP”. As many BSB fans know, regular VIP includes a meet and greet, picture, and usually less than a minute of trying to gather all of your thoughts and form words. Not in All Access. Imagine getting to sit for hours talking to your favorite Backstreet Boy about literally anything you want- no limitations. Kind of like a Q&A on steroids, but an actual meaningful conversation. Plus, you have the added bonus of hearing insider information for the first time and plans for the future that Nick only wants you, his Ultimate VIPs, to know.
Speaking of Nick being our friend, a few lucky ladies decided to play Never Have I Ever The Name Game with him. Let’s face it, the Backstreet Boys, especially Nick, meet so many fans on a daily basis, of course remembering names is difficult. But not in All Access. Imagine you and Nick being on a mutual first name basis, and let’s just say, he has a really funny way of remembering names (a strategy taught to him by our other favorite Backstreet Boy New Kid, Jordan Knight).
- Being exclusive.
One of the perks of ALL Access is that you get ALL of it; including participating in exclusive activities with Nick that only a few people in the world have ever gotten to do. Every single Ultimate differed from the last due to the venue and space limitations, but each one was special in its own way. For example, in New Jersey, Nick took his fans to the candy shop *Cue The Dan Band “Candy Shop” rendition*. In NYC, Nick (along with special guest, Hal, from Rose Tours) invited all of the current non-cruisers to join the party (at their own expense, of course). He even played roommate matchmaker for a couple of girls. Who can ever say that they shared candy with Nick, or got a personal invitation to come on the BSB cruise from a Backstreet Boy? The fans who did the Ultimate VIP; that’s who.
- The bus.
Only every fangirl’s dream ever… Okay, or maybe just mine? Ever wondered what Nick’s bus looks like? Well now the fans who did Ultimate VIP know. Except the ones who did All Access in NYC, because Nick didn’t know where the driver parked his bus. LOL! SMH, Carter.
- Attending the unofficial Dead 7 pre-premiere/screening.
If all of the above wasn’t enough, the Ultimates got to continue doing things that no other fans have ever gotten to do. These fans got a first look at his movie, Dead 7, and all of the boyband-filled gore and comedy that ensued. Being one of the first people ever to see the movie that Nick worked so hard to create was truly a shared special moment for both Nick and fans.
- The opportunity to be nicks security for the day.
Yeah, we roll with Nick. Or should we say he rolls with us…?
- Nick Carter pops champagne.
And you drink it. After he serves it to you and toasts to you in the eyes, of course (or else it’s 7 years of bad sex) – according to Carter. So when Nick Carter wants to look you in the eyes, you make sure you look him in the eyes.
- Making cameos on Nick’s social media.
Ever wanted to make featured picture and video appearances on nicks Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and/or Snapchat? Now, these lucky Ultimate fangirls (and boys) get to show their friends and family their one picture/video of fame, and Nick has the pleasure of reliving the fun memories of his Ultimate VIPs every time he opens his social media / camera roll on his iPhone! #Sorrynotsorry Nick.
Okay, so, the Backstreet Boys are fun and all, but sharing experiences with friends and other fans is truly one of a kind. Having good times with existing friends and making new friends while hanging out with your favorite Backstreet Boy is always where it’s at.
- A VIP ran by… You.
Remember that time you got to run your own VIP? No? Then you haven’t been one of Nick Carter’s Ultimates. Nick really cares about what his fans want, and he is always looking for fans’ honest feedback in order to better himself and the experiences he shares with them. We asked… Nick delivered. Want to go on his bus? Want to go backstage? How about watching the show from side stage or being front row? (all while drinking complimentary champagne, sitting down if you prefer, or being able to leave your spot to use the restroom) – Just in case you don’t know, these luxuries are RARE at a GA concert. Speaking of front row… we all know what happens when you’re in the “Swet” zone at a Nick concert. You get all of *that* […picture it…] automatically just for being an Ultimate VIP. You even get a laminate that says “BACKSTAGE”. If you thought flashing your “regular ol’ VIP” laminate was cool, think again.
- “Free” extras…
So you know those $100 selfies that Nick was selling to concert goers? Ultimate VIPs got those and an added post-show hangout included as part of their package. Sure they paid more already, but who’s counting? Plus, all of the Ultimate VIPs got longer photo sessions; pictures, pictures and more pictures; Selfies/videos/autographs, you name it; they got it all. Hence, ALL Access. Some lucky Ultimates even got to take pictures with Nick’s lens-free nerd glasses, basking in all of their Spencer’s store glory.
**We had a great time in All Access, Nick; we should definitely do it again. But ladies and gents- keep in mind, this does come with a price– getting sick for an indefinite amount of time if you catch the Nick superbug; and I can almost guarantee you will. But hey, at least you can say that Nick Carter got you sick…? #Contagion
