The Basics: All About The Backstreet Boys’ ‘DNA’ World Tour

We are officially in the Backstreet Boys DNA era! Can you believe it?

With every new era comes new questions, new things to figure out logistically, and, of course, a new show, setlist, wardrobe, memorable moments, etc.

Just like we did with BSB Vegas, we’ll be with you every step of the way. This post will be segmented and updated as needed with all the links to posts about tour, any new things you need to know and answers to the questions we get the most of. We won’t have all of the answers immediately, but we’ll find them for you when we don’t!

As always, if you have a question we didn’t answer, please feel free to CONTACT US!

**FYI: This particularly post will remain spoiler free. We’re not too into posting major details about shows, but if we do, we’ll do it here. Consider this a safe space.**

– The above listed packages are the **ONLY** verified ways to meet the Backstreet Boys on the DNA World Tour.

– The Wonderful Union Meet and Greet **DOES NOT INCLUDE** a concert ticket.

– All Meet and Greet packages and upgrades include ONE professional photo with the Backstreet Boys, taken by their photographer, that will be uploaded to their website usually 24-72 hours later. You can find the photos here.

– Your photo with the Backstreet Boys will be individual – not in a group – unless you have a friend / friends you want in your photo. In that case, each person still has to have purchased a meet and greet. It is up to you who you want in your photo basically.

– Cell phones / selfies are not permitted. We would not suggest bringing gifts, props, etc.

– There are some cities that have begun to sell the DNA Circle tickets and Meet and Greet passes separately through Ticketmaster (or the ticket vendor). This is to sell previously unsold tickets — not added numbers. In these cities, people have the option to buy DNA Circle concert tickets (also known as the General Admission / Pit area on previous tours) if they want the spot during the show but don’t care about M&G or to buy the M&G pass but would rather sit elsewhere. **Check your city’s ticket vendor to see what’s available**

– Check in information (time, location, etc.) will be emailed to VIPers 24-48 hours prior to the show. If you purchased Meet and Greet through Wonderful Union, here is your resource for help: help.wonderfulunion.com If you purchased through Ticketmaster, contact their Customer Care for your region.

– IMPORTANT: VIP Meet and Greets are NON-TRANSFERABLE! Do not purchase them from someone else and do not purchase if you are not 100% you can attend. If you think a ticket might be a scam, contact us and we can likely help you out!

– Wonderful Union M&G is not available in all cities. It looks like the cities that are offering separate Circle tickets and M&G through Ticketmaster are not selling through WU. Keep checking back on backstreetboys.com for updates! You have to click ON the city / country on the website to access the WU VIP. Currently, WU has M&G upgrades available in the follow countries / cities:

Lisbon, Portugal

Madrid, Spain

Barcelona, Spain (SOLD OUT)

Helsinki, Finland

Dublin, Ireland

– Please note that the select cities in which VIP M&G through Wonderful Union is on sale is not favoritism for some fans over others or intentionally giving more opportunities. It all has to do with logistics, contracts, capacity, etc. In most places where WU is not offering M&G, Ticketmaster is offering the separate package. If neither is offered, it’s likely because they have reached capacity and are trying to keep the number of people attending M&G manageable.

– The VIP package through Ticketmaster that includes SIDE SEATING tickets does **NOT** include Meet and Greet.

– The concerts for Japan and Southeast Asia have a different VIP provider. More can be found here and through the Japan BSB Fan Club.

 

++ The Show ++

– The show is 32 songs — more can be found here about the details that we do know!

– The show runs 1 hour and 50 minutes.

– There is plenty of space inside the DNA Circle and interactions are similar to that, if not better than, in the pit of IAWLT tour and Vegas.

– All dates and tickets for the tour can be found here.

– Everything about the Japan + Southeast Asia dates and tickets can be found here.

– As questions are asked and the shows begin, we will have more updates here.

++ FAQ ++

All of the questions that you ask and we answer via tweets or email, we’ll also address here.

 

 

 

 

 

++ Odds and Ends ++

– Be flexible! This is a new era, new album, new tour, new everything and everyone is learning. Things will inevitably change as things are worked out – it has happened with every tour thus far and will continue to happen. Don’t sabotage your own time.

– BE CAREFUL! With a tour as large as this, there are scalpers and scammers who are looking to trick fans into “a deal”. If the tickets are far overpriced or offered at a low price, verify that they are actual, real tickets. Again, keep in mind that the only M&G options are through Ticketmaster and Wonderful Union — you can not purchase them anywhere else.

– Afterparties, so far, have included Nick and Howie only and are being announced by the city. Make sure to turn on notifications for their socials and check nickcarter.net for updates on announcements! VIP and GA have been available with VIP including admission, meet and greet and a professional photo.

– NEW DNA World Tour Merch can be found here and here.

Leaving Las Vegas: The End of the #BSBVegas Era

As we reflect on the end of the Backstreet Boys Las Vegas residency, we can’t help but think of Dorothy leaving the land of Oz. Follow us here…

Just as Dorothy was swept from a black and white world to a land of beautiful colors, new friends, discoveries of self, lots of singing (and even a few wicked witches), we were blown (ahem, flew) into the city of Las Vegas to do the same since the Boys began their residency at Planet Hollywood in March 2017. 

Some of us found a new courage. Some of us grew bigger hearts. Some of us actually lost our brains. Unlike Dorothy though, we all found a new place to call home. Suddenly, Vegas became our escape. It went from a place that we could go to see the Backstreet Boys to a place that we could go to meet up with our friends from all over, a place we could go to make some pretty epic memories, and a place and time that we will forever tell stories about for years to come.

When Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ, and Nick converged to embark on the Larger Than Life residency, we had no idea what to expect. We knew we’d get the same caliber of vocals and performance we were used to, but we had no idea the level it would reach. We had no idea that a rose, a hand hold, a moment in time, singing along with our favorite Backstreet Boy would all be things that held significance two years later.

Now here we are…

80 shows (by the time they finish), two venue name changes, millions of fans from hundreds of countries, the birth of a Backstreet baby, an album, a Grammy nomination, a sold out cruise, a celebration of a quarter century together, and so much more…

The Backstreet Boys are ready to close this chapter (for now, at least) and head out on a world tour.

And it’s bittersweet. 

Sure, we’re ready for the DNA tour to begin. We’re ready for new performances, new choreography, and new memories, but just as much as Dorothy wanted to go home (aka back to the familiarity of tour), she also didn’t want to leave the Tin Man, Scarecrow and Cowardly Lion behind.

As with the end of any Backstreet era, we have, to quote Nick Carter, mixed emotions. At the top of all of those emotions though, is an INSANE amount of gratitude.

We’re grateful to the Backstreet Boys.

To Kevin, who shows up to every meet and greet and every moment onstage to give 110% back to us.

To Howie, who showed up to the afterparties, always ready to party with us until early morning hours.

To Brian, who worked insanely hard through every performance to deliver his best and who went above and beyond to entertain.

To AJ, who gives a new meaning to the greatest showman, killing it with the vocals we fell in love everytime.

To Nick, who leaves it all out on stage every single time and moved to Las Vegas to raise his family, but also opened our eyes to so many great causes in the city as well.

We’re grateful for the BSB team (and families).

To the ones who helped us out everytime we didn’t know what we were doing.

To the ones that worked hard to make sure the VIP M&G lounge was everything it could be (especially to whoever thought of that bomb ass photobooth).

To the ones who make sure that everything ran smoothly from start to finish, that our photos turned out amazing, that we never had to wait long to get them, and that we had a truly great experience.

To the ones who helped us get where we needed to be for the afterparties and pointed us out to the Backstreet Boys when some of us weren’t bold enough to ask for a selfie ourselves.

To the ones who treated us like people rather than a bunch of fangirls. Thank you for listening.

To the wives who live streamed via Instagram when we couldn’t be there in person and played both parents to let the Boys do their thing with us.

We’re grateful to the venue staff.

To the security team inside Zappos Theater who has been exceedingly kind to all of us, but also kept us in line. Oh, and sang along with us.

To the bartenders who KEPT. IT. COMING.

To the ticketing agents who are always super welcoming.

To the Zappos social media team who fangirls alongside us and keeps it hype for our fave five.

We’re grateful for each other.

For this chapter.

For the friendships we’ve made and the lessons we’ve learned.

For the celebrations and the late nights.

For the bonding we’ve done over the post-concert depression and the jetlag.

For the fellow fans who share photos, videos and whatnot for someone who might want them.

For those that couldn’t attend a show in Vegas but supported those that could, supported the Boys extended stay and lived vicariously through everyone else, patiently waiting for the return to their own country / city.

For the ones who sing along. The ones who don’t question why we’re crying mid-concert. The ones who get it when we thought we were alone in these feelings.

How lucky we have been (and we didn’t even have to gamble to find out)!

To the city of Las Vegas…

Thank you for welcoming the Backstreet Boys with open arms and thank you for being a city that we never got tired of. Thank you for never sleeping because we sure as hell did not.

This is it. 

With only three more shows and pink confetti drops left this week, we close this chapter in Backstreet history, knowing there are many more journeys to a different “OZ” ahead of us, but also knowing that these past 2 years will always hold a special place in our hearts, just like every era before.

We’ll never forget the feelings we felt the first time we saw the Boys turn around in those boxes, descending down to the stage.

We’ll never forget the incredible dancers who kept us entranced.

We’ll never forget LOVING how “Undone” sounds live (and Nick’s enthusiastic dancing).

We’ll never forget the anticipation of “Shape Of My Heart”.

We’ll never forget the most special of moments that we don’t even discuss, but remains pristine in our memories for a rainy day.

We’re so happy to have had this “home”. There’s no place like it. 

 

 

 

 

4 Things Happening For The Backstreet Boys Right Now That You Need To Know About

What aren’t the Backstreet Boys doing right now? They’re super busy and, as fans, so are we. We couldn’t ask for more, honestly!

If you’ve been out of the loop and feel like you’re drowning in a sea of unorganized Backstreet information (as Kristie says, “I can’t even keep up with life”), we’re here for you. Here are all the things that Kevin, Brian, Howie, AJ and Nick require your attention for at this very moment…

1. The Last Few BSB Vegas Shows

DNMTwksWkAE0Zh4

At the time we are writing this, there are only 6…SIX…S I X… Larger Than Life Vegas shows left. Time flies, you guys! Remember when the residency was only 16ish shows? Remember when Lyric wasn’t even BORN yet? Remember when we (some of you) were worried the dancers would detract from the Boys and now we follow them on Instagram? There’s so many memories and experiences wrapped up in the past two years… but that’s for a later post.

Catch them while you can.

2. BSB: The Experience

image

If you haven’t heard yet (where have you been??), the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles has an exhibit called BSB: The Experience that will walk you through some of the coolest memorabilia, artifacts, old wardrobe, and never-before-seen pieces of Backstreet history. In addition to the “stuff”, there are also several interactive parts, including a confessional, a hologram of the Boys themselves and so much more!

The exhibit runs from now through September 2nd.

If you missed their Q&A with JoJo Wright prior to the opening, you NEED to watch it. Thanks to our friends at The Darkside, you can!

3. A Permanent Stain (er…Handprint) At Planet Hollywood

0412_lvnb_bsb_handprints01_t653

To kick off the end of their Vegas residency and mark their place in Vegas history, Planet Hollywood invited the Backstreet Boys to join in their exclusive collection of celebrity handprints. Not only did Kevin, Brian, Howie, Nick and AJ put their hands in cement, they also donated $180,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of Southern Nevada. Legends!

Check out more photos from the event here.

4. DNA Tour Kicking Off SOON! 

livenation-11092018

The Backstreet Boys may only have two weeks left in Vegas, but they only have three before they head over to Lisbon, Portugal to kick off their MASSIVE DNA world tour!

New songs! New choreography! NEW NEW NEW! We can’t breathe, can you? (Is this why the Backstreet Boys have two songs by that title because they know that we CAN NOT?) If you can’t wait to a sneak peek, check Nick and Brian’s Instagram pages for little blips inside rehearsals!

While we will miss the residency and all it has done for us, we are SO thrilled for all the new things and for everyone to get a chance to see them one (or three or fifteen). Of course, we’ll be updating on all the things. Follow us!

If you haven’t gotten your tickets (or think you need more), click here.

(And before anyone asks, we don’t know / haven’t heard anything about DNA tour VIP Upgrades, but when / if we do, you guys will be FIRST to know!)

20 Years of “I Want It That Way”

While there are so many songs that the Backstreet Boys have released before and since “I Want It That Way” hit airwaves 20 years ago, there is no denying that if you walk up to almost anyone who was alive in 1999 and sing “Tell me why…”, they’ll answer with a lyric from the classic hit.

For many fans, “I Want It That Way” is more than a song. It’s a memory.

It’s the feeling of watching the music video premiere on MTV and squealing once those five faces appeared on the screen. It was a time before the Millennium album dropped and the Backstreet Boys became the best selling boyband of all time. It was the first time we had felt such great anticipation.

It’s the moment some became a fan.

It’s the go-to on karaoke night and the tune that we’ll turn up louder anytime we hear it on the radio.

They’re the words we scream at the top of our lungs in a crowd – who is also singing along – no matter where you are.

Two decades ago was definitely a simpler time and it was a time where a song that didn’t make any sense made a lot of sense to love. Before there were adult responsibilities, bills and babies, there were the Backstreet Boys and there was “I Want It That Way”.

We’ve joked that we’d be okay with the Boys never playing the song in concert again, but the truth is that it holds a special place for each and every one of us. The truth is that we’ll always sing along. The truth is that we’ll always scream “DON’T WANNA HEAR YOU…” even when Nick doesn’t and we’ll always fill in whatever part Brian isn’t singing when he points his mic to the crowd. We’ll always feel like a Backstreet Boy when we wear all white and we’ll forever be jealous of the girls in the music video (then and now).

In thinking about how lucky we are that we’ve been fans of a band that has had a career that has outlasted most other bands in their era, we also think about how thankful we are for the music that is absolutely timeless. This song and the many others that will outlast all of us. “I Want It That Way” is a piece of music that will and has already brought together multiple generations across the world and will continue to for another 20 years.

Obviously, we want it that way.

7 Reasons You Need To See The Backstreet Boys Las Vegas Residency Before It’s Over

A month from now, the Backstreet Boys incredible Larger Than Life Las Vegas Residency at Zappos Theater in Planet Hollywood on the strip will only have a few shows left! A run that started out with only two months of shows has turned into 2 years, drawing in fans and tourists-turned-fans from all over the world.

This residency has brought some old favorite songs to the stage, the return of dancers, amazing effects and an eye-catching wardrobe that anyone who attends won’t soon forget. In fact, many people who started out saying they would go to one or two shows can’t get enough and have made multiple trips back!

Need more convincing to catch the show before it ends on April 27th? We have our reasons.

1. Undone.

maxresdefault

The song, a long time fan favorite from the Backstreet Boys This Is Us album, is the first and only song added to a setlist since Kevin has returned that didn’t include Kevin on the original recording and BOY, are we HYPE about it! “Undone” showcases everything that we vocally love about the Boys and the way the choreography works (yes, they have choreography to a slow song), you can literally feel the song moving, creeping up on you as the Backstreet Boys move in perfect horizontal pyramid formation down the “catwalk”.

And let’s just say that Nick Carter has infused a few moves into it that leaves a lot of ladies (and some gentleman) wide eyed and jaw dropped.

You just need to be there. In person. With eyeballs. And ears.

2. You Never Know Who Might Show Up!

large.eyymfbxdtexpqd_9w_r34jmr70xah7jukiyrdd4w3mg

From Snooki to Joey Fatone to Andy Cohen to James Corden to Billie Lourd to Shania Twain to Niall Horan to…. well, you get the point! The Backstreet Boys are legends and there’s a lot of celebrities who know and love them and a large number of them have shown up in the audience at a BSB Vegas show. Some of them have even made it onstage during the “Shape Of My Heart” serenade, making for some VERY memorable moments.

Speaking of the serenade, there’s always a chance that if you’re in the audience, it could be you!

3. The Boys Are More Accessible Than Ever.

large._0ydv9jmthosj0qk5hhspa49t_05uu3fe8nevhmr2ye

From the stage and VIP tables that allow the Boys to reach out and touch fans like never before to the back sections where Kevin, Brian, AJ, Howie and Nick appear during “All I Have To Give” (then make their way down through several sections in the audience), there’s not a bad spot in the house and you can definitely be lucky enough to grab a hand or snag a quick selfie – no matter where you are! Ah, the thrill of the “maybe”.

Oh, and we should mention, if you haven’t heard already, each of the Backstreet Boys hand out a rose to a fan (usually near the front) during the show and boy, does that make for a great souvenir!

4. You Can Make A Whole Day Out Of It – Conveniently! 

miracle-mile-shops-email

With VIP Meet and Greet starting around 5:30 and an afterparty (sometimes) that goes until 2am with the concert in between, you can make a day of Backstreet! What do we mean by a whole day? Because being in Las Vegas, there’s plenty of places to pamper yourself beforehand. Get your hair done at Drybar (or any other salon on the strip) and make over your face at Sephora (or hire someone to come to your room) because you need a look that’s going to go hard! Oh, and don’t forget to shop for merch in the merch store outside of Zappos Theater before the show.

No interested in the glam? Book a massage or go grab a drink with other fans before the show – there are plenty around at all times.

5. The Whole Production Is WORTH. IT. 

DSC03383

The show….oh man, THE SHOW! From the moment the Backstreet Boys descend from the ceiling in turning boxes, there’s a vibe… an electricity… that you can’t (currently) experience anywhere else. The Boys’ wardrobe is pristine (have we mentioned how much we love the sparkly jackets), the lights and set are on point, and the dancers (who we admittedly weren’t sure about before the residency started) add something to the show that we didn’t know we needed. In a word, THIS SHOW IS SPICY!

6. This Is Your Last Chance To Catch Them In The States For A Few Months!

livenation-11092018

Kevin, Nick, AJ, Brian and Howie are kicking off the DNA World Tour overseas in May and will not be returning to the U.S. until July! Get your fix now (and then do it again when the tour comes to your city, of course).

7. FOMO.

It’s almost over! You don’t. want. to. miss. this. and if you do, well… there’s going to inevitably be some regret. When have we ever told you wrong?

23 GIFs From ‘The Bachelor’ That Backstreet Boys Fans Can Relate To

Sometimes we watch things and we say to ourselves “that’s exactly what it looks like when we feel _____ about the Backstreet Boys!”

We’ve done it with Elf, we’ve done it with Friends, and now, we’re embarking on exposing our most ridiculous, hilarious (but totally serious obbbvviously, wink wink) side as Backstreet fans with the most appropriate show — The Bachelor.

5 Things We’ve Learned From Nick Carter

For the past 25 years, Backstreet Boys fans worldwide have ended January by celebrating Nick Carter’s latest trip around the sun.

This year, the youngest Backstreet Boy turns 39 and what a life it has been thus far! We have seen Nick literally grow up before our eyes (as we have alongside him) and through the highs and the lows, we have learned so much from him.

As we have with every other Backstreet Boy on their birthdays, we’re celebrating by laying out some of the best things we’ve learned from Mr. Carter.

1. Hard Work Pays Off. 

When we say that Nick is (and has always been) one of the hardest working people we know, we mean it professionally and personally. There’s very few times in his career that Nick has only had one task at hand, always working to create something new and do something better than he has done before – group and solo.

Then there’s the fact that, after fearing a decline in health from years of bad choices, he turned everything around – hitting the gym and taking care of himself on a regular basis. This hard work has turned into Nick living his best life and looking the best he ever has, but also in the best health he ever has been, inspiring many to do the same.

2. The Power Of Positivity. 

Nick has spoken before about a book that meant a lot to him, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale’s The Power Of Positive Thinking, a gift from bandmate Kevin Richardson, and how positive thinking has affected his life and overall outlook on things. This disposition has translated through in many things in Nick’s work, the way he speaks, and has inspired us to think twice about the way we think as well.

3. A Lot of RANDOM Things. 

From aliens to football to video games to high tech computer developments to all the science to the process behind the scenes, Nick has inadvertently taught us so many things we didn’t know before. We guarantee you if you spend five minutes with him, you’re going to learn SOMETHING… whether you wanted to know it or not.

4. Family Isn’t Always Blood Related.

If you’ve followed Nick Carter for any length of time, you’d know that so many of the people he calls his family are people he has chosen – people that have come into his life by chance, fans included. Even now that he is married with a son and has a sweet little family of his own, you’ll find him still referring to the other BSB as his brothers. He has made it clear to so many that family is what you make it and in that, many have been able to come to terms with things in their own life and find their own families.

Because of Nick, a lot of fans have found their families in each other.

5. How To Go Hard For Things We Believe In.

Remember that time we found ways for everyone to watch Dancing With The Stars worldwide and vote an obscene amount of times and forced our friends to do the same? Remember when we voted for “The One” to be a single because of Nick? Remember every moment we’ve rallied for him through in the past 26 years? Remember every football season when Nick himself believes the Bucs will finally make it to the Super Bowl?

He’s taught us to be passionate about what we want, to throw our support full force behind the people we believe in, and inspired us to go hard for those things. No one does it better than Nick Carter.

Happy Birthday, Nick!

We hope that your day (and this year) is nothing short of amazing for you.

To The Backstreet Boys On Their ‘DNA’ Album Release…Thank You

The time has come.

DNA is here! And we are speechless.

Before we post any type of review or other post about it, we wanted to first write a thank you letter of sorts to the artists themselves – the Backstreet Boys.

To The Backstreet Boys on the day of your album release…

Thank you. Thank you for sticking around this long. Thank you for working on this album for SIX YEARS to make it the perfection that it is. It is honestly the most perfect sampling of different vibes, showcasing of vocals, and current sound mixed with classic Backstreet.

Thank you for making us wait (even when we kept asking).

We are so proud of the five of you. We are so proud of this album and we will be telling everyone we know about it in coming days (weeks, months, years?). We are endlessly proud to call ourselves Backstreet Boys because albums like this. DNA is an additional soundtrack to our lives and it might be the best chapter yet.

Thank you for continuing to create, continuing to push yourselves and the boundaries of what the world defines as the Backstreet Boys, and always becoming better in every way.

We all appreciate this album more than you all could ever know.

To Kevin…

Your vocals on this album are absolutely flawless. You can hear the soul you put into every lyric you’re singing on DNA and we’re thrilled to hear even more of it this round. Thank you for always telling us to be patient because it certainly paid off. We’re still so happy that you’re back.

To Howie…

THOSE SOLOS THOUGH! You have more than delivered on DNA, absolutely nailing every solo verse and harmony from beginning to end. Wow! We always knew you had it in you – we hear you kicking off those songs! This is honestly the best you have ever sounded and we can’t wait to hear you live. Thank you for sharing your beautiful vocals with us.

To Brian…

From the highest of high notes to the gentle vocal vibes that only you could land, your voice has always made our ears feel cozy and DNA is no exception. We have been rooting for you as you have found a new sound and boy, have you found it. Your heart is in everything that you sing and it translates to anyone listening. Thank you for working so hard to be the best that you can be – so passionate.

To AJ…

As always, you bring so much incredible vocal prowess to DNA. Your voice is instantly recognizable and exactly everything a Backstreet song needs to be complete. You are a constant fountain of raw talent that adds a little zest to every song on the album. Thank you for being the AJ we all know and love.

To Nick…

Nick. Carter. Your voice on this album is unlike anything we’ve heard before. From the beginning of Backstreet to DNA, this is the best you have ever sounded. There are so many dynamics and your determination to produce such a great sound has not gone unnoticed. We have chills. Thank you for being the best version of yourself that you can be. We’re all enjoying it more than you could imagine.

Haven’t heard Backstreet’s DNA yet? What are you waiting for?!

Backstreet Boys are most patiently impatient people. We’ve waited for six years for a new album…but waiting 2 more days? Well, it’s TOO. DAMN. HARD. We need the album in our hands and we need to know every place the Backstreet Boys are going to be for the foreseeable future IMMEDIATELY.

2. The Old Familiar Feeling of A Wild Craze.

That stir inside isn’t caused by the Chinese you ate last night. It’s what we like to call “The BSBlectricity”. It’s the indescribable feeling of anticipation mixed with excitement and everything else mentioned in this post. You can feel your heart beating out of your chest and your emotions…well.. they’re not under your control.

3. Pure Satisfaction.

Knowing that the Backstreet Boys are beginning a new era, that they’ve completed the album, that they’re out there doing the damn thing and being just as successful as they’ve always been… well, that is super satisfying for us. Especially when we share their success on Facebook for all of the people in high school who told us that being a fan was stupid.

4. Absolute Elation.

I mean, does this NEED an explanation? DOES IT?!

5. A Chill.

Amidst all of our greatest feelings, there’s a sort of chill as well. The work has been done, the album is coming, the concerts are upon us and all is right in the world.

6. Pride! So Much Pride.

Refer back to #3. We are so incredibly proud of these five guys. Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ and Nick are five of the hardest working men in the music industry. Every accolade and bit of attention they’re receiving right now is so well deserved and we could not be happier for them.

7. Fear?

OH MY GOD, THERE IS SO MUCH TO KEEP UP WITH. What if we have conflicts? What if we don’t like the album? (L O L, right?) What if we have a new favorite album? What about tour?! WHAT IF THERE ARE NEW THINGS ON TOUR WE DON’T KNOW ABOUT THAT WE’RE GOING TO LOVE? So much unknown.

P.S. If you’re worried about keeping up, we’ll do it for you.

8. BEYOND. READY.

To (kind of) quote Spongebob, WE’RE READY, WE’RE READY! Duh.
