That’s right; Backstreet Boys are back (again)! …Even though we know they never left. It has been confirmed that the
boys [guys?] will be performing 9 shows in Las Vegas as a trial for a possible future residency. Word on the [Back] street is that this will be part of their upcoming tour that will run somewhere between the end of 2016 and beginning of 2017. Backstreet fans everywhere are super pumped, and we know we are too! Here are some of the things we would LOVE to see!
1. Extra events.
Let’s all take some tips from Solo Nick- he set that bar reallll high. I mean- who wouldn’t want to have lunch, bowl, or play laser tag with your favorite Backstreet Boy?! Now it’s time for the AJ, Brian, Howie, and Kevin girls to get their chance. Also, BSB, feel free to bring back the after parties, especially in Vegas– we like those (when we’re not getting crushed in a crowd of people?) [*Cue Kevin’s calm down gesture on the bus in Rio]. You know you’re picturing it.
2. Backstreet Bus.
Ever wish you could travel in style on a tour bus like BSB (or WITH BSB)? For those of you and your friends who have already created your own mini-tours, have you ever thought of renting a RV/bus to travel around? Well, how about if BSB provides you with a tour bus? We should do this. Let’s make it happen.
3. More exclusive VIP.
The different levels of VIP are great because it gives many fans a chance to participate to their liking. However, for one of the levels, is having some kind of “Ultimate” VIP asking for too much…? A VIP with less fans and more time spent with BSB? …Because we all know that no one feels very VIP[-y?] when you’re rushed in and out with hundreds of other people. Just in case we forgot how amazing Nick Carter’s All Access/Ultimate was, BSB should find a way to do something similar. And of course, this goes without saying- we want soundcheck.
Another option is NKOTB’s version of the “Ultimate”. As an upgrade to your VIP package, you get an entire SOLO photo shoot with candid and group pictures without having to buy a completely separate VIP.
Finally, I think I’m speaking for many fans when I say- bring back the backstage tour! The on stage seating for Platinum VIP was fun and all, but the amount of individual face-time with the backstage tours is why fans love it. But… if there was ultimate VIP, you wouldn’t need the backstage tour, because going backstage would already be built into the package– hmmmm… something to think about, Wonderful Union….
4. A Chance to Vote.
Every fan has a dream set list they would love to see BSB perform in concert. Although we LOVE the iconic hits like “I Want It That Way” and “Everybody”, wouldn’t we all love a good “Let’s Have A Party” or “Back To Your Heart” thrown into the mix?! If fans get to vote on [at least a few] songs, then maybe we could switch things up for a bit. Just for fun.
5. A Baby.
Well, ladies and gents, if you have not yet seen it in the news– Nick Carter is a DAD! [WHAT?!] We are SO excited, and now all 5 guys can bring their little ones on tour! Can’t wait to meet the newest little Backstreet Boy, Odin!
**Take notes, boys (and WU); and we can’t wait to see you soon!
