Ladies and Gentlemen…
Boys and Girls…
We are now boarding the Backstreet Boys Larger Than Life Vegas Experience. Described by Brian Littrell as a “Backstreet Boys show on steroids” and by Howie Dorough as “a show unlike you’ve ever seen before”, we’re on the runway for this new adventure and we’re days away from taking off.
Before we enjoy the show, however, there’s the little matter of VIP meet and greet. What do you need to know? What should you expect? How can you have the best time ever? We’ve got you covered!
1. You’ll Get An Email With Details 24-48 Hours Prior To Your Event.
Many of you have asked if there’s been a timeline posted for when everything is going down and whatnot. The answer is no. Everyday is different and subject to change based on what’s going on. The Boys and Wonderful Union want you to have the best experience possible (I promise) and for that reason, they send out times to meet and where 24-48 hours prior to your event to be sure.
Make sure you add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book to make sure your itinerary doesn’t go to spam! Worried about printing it out? Don’t. All you have to have is your ID… and your cute self, duh.
2. Like The Concert, This Is An All New Meet And Greet Experience.
Wonderful Union has really been trying to listen to fan suggestions and tailoring the latest VIP meet and greet experience to meet and greet all of our VIP expectations.
So forget everything you knew.
For now, clean your VIP slate and get excited. There’s a VIP Preshow lounge! Access to drinks and snacks! Merch being shipped so you don’t have to guard it all night! Limited number of people! ALL FIVE BACKSTREET BOYS! Who knows what else might happen?
Will you still have to show up and wait for a bit before the meet and greet actually starts? Probably. It’s a great time to catch up with friends and share good times with people you’ve never met. We promise you — it’s worth the wait.
3. Go With The Flow.
Like we said, forget everything you know. Enjoy it as it comes and please, don’t sabotage your own experience.
You paid for this experience. You earned this experience. Your friends have done the same. If you go in with a positive outlook, things will inevitably be better. Be the type of person everyone wants to go with and don’t let last minute changes stress you out. At the end of the day, YOU’RE GOING TO MEET THE BACKSTREET BOYS! Yay!
Again, everything you may go through will end up TOTALLY worth it. Also, be mindful that this is new for everyone and sometimes kinks need to be worked out.
4. …But Have A Plan.
Like I said, you paid for this, you have waited so long for this (I don’t care how many times you’ve done it – you’re definitely counting down) and you don’t want to leave with regrets. So don’t!
You only get so much time with Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ, and Nick so you definitely want to make the most out of it. If there’s something you REALLY want to say, get it in your head more than 2 minutes before you meet them. If you’re only there for a hug (er, handshake) and a photo, that’s cool too. Just have it in your head and make a mental plan! It’s a lot less stressful.
Also, don’t get crazy. Mental planning cuts out the “wtf am I saying” moments and the excessive drooling that might happen. 🙂
5. Take Care Of Yourself.
So you’ve gotten your email, you’ve gotten your mental plan, you’re totally breezy and going with the flow….
…but you totally forgot to eat and be a human.
We know nerves and emotions run high on show days and you may not FEEL like eating (my biggest fault), but do you feel like passing out in front of the Backstreet Boys? Trust us, the medics will NOT be as hot.
6. Ask Your Friends.
If you’re not going the first week, definitely ask your friends that went what all went down and what to expect (but again, every night is different, see #3).
Kristie and I will both be in attendance on opening week and we will definitely be updating WHOTB ASAP on all the happenings. There’s also this post with pro tips from Backstreet Boys VIP addicts to help you prepare yourself.
7. HAVE FUN!
Your countdown is at zero, you’re in an amazing city with your favorite band and the excitement is in the air! Stop worrying and have the best time EVER. You deserve it.
