The Backstreet Fever is taking over Vegas and we couldn’t be more thrilled to finally see them take over The Axis theater stage. Last night was a night of firsts – first show, first VIP and first official BSB afterparty. Naturally, everyone has a lot of questions!
While we intend on putting together a fully detailed review / suggestion / photo blog after we both return this weekend, here are a few answers to what seem to be the most asked questions. Please note that all of this has been confirmed by the appropriate people and/or people that were there last night.
1.Are cameras allowed?
Yes. Contrary to what Planet Hollywood and the box office will tell you when you call / email / tweet, POINT AND SHOOT CAMERAS ARE ALLOWED. Cameras with a detachable lens will be taken and be available for pick up at the end of the show.
2. Who Gets Into Pit (General Admission) First?
As of last night, everyone was lined up in the following order – VIP (1st), Early Entry (2nd), Regular GA (3rd). However, people with regular GA still got a good spot in the pit as it is a small space. Please note – this is ALL standing. You do NOT have a designated spot in GA.
3. Are Drinks Allowed Into The Pit?
Of course. While you may not want to give up your spot to get a drink or run to the restroom, drinks are definitely allowed.
4. What’s Included In VIP?
A meet and greet with the Backstreet Boys and a VIP exclusive lounge with a bar, photobooth, and more to ensure a good time with friends! Please note that last night (3/1) was the first night and that the meet and greet experience is only going to get better. Hugs from each BSB though – what could be better??
Please note that VIP experiences are all different and the time spent with the Boys varies. It’s best to go in with an open mind.
5. How Many People Were In VIP?
Around 150 – it was sold out.
6. Can You Leave VIP After You’re Done?
It’s not likely that you’ll want to. By the time the VIP process is done, it’s time for doors to open. Every night is different though.
UPDATE: We did see one or two people leave to go to dinner and get their ticket rescanned to come back in. If you have an actual seat, there’s no benefit to being let in early. Make sure you get your ticket scanned before you leave though.
7. Can You Buy VIP At The Door?
If VIP is sold out, no.
8. How Long Is The Show?
12 minute long intro video, 96 minute show. Usually starts around 9:10 pm.
9. The Boys Go Into The Audience For AIHTG. Which Sections?
10. Do You Have To Leave The Show Early To Get A Good GA Spot For The Afterparty?
No. Leaving early isn’t really beneficial. Chateau is a 5 minute walk from Planet Hollywood and the Boys will take longer to get there than you will.
11. Is The Chateau Dress Code Enforced?
Not really, but we wouldn’t recommend showing up in something as casual as flip flops.
We will be updating this post as there are more questions! We will be live tweeting / snapchatting from Vegas all weekend – @whothebckstreet. Can’t wait to see you guys there!
