The summer of BSB Vegas may be over, but the Backstreet Boys are only getting started! The shows have proven to be ACTUALLY larger than life – sequins, silver boots, 50 shades-ish wardobe and all.
But let’s get down to what you’re here for – Backstreet Boys VIP Meet And Greet.
As with every BSB event / appearance / situation / day they’re alive, there are questions, there is excitement, and there are rumors. We’re here to debunk what we can! We’ll start with rumors we’ve heard and we encourage you to send in anything you need to know if it’s FACT OR FICTION.
If you haven’t already, please read our posts about all things BSB Vegas here, including FAQ, VIP vs Afterparty, and our personal review from Vegas VIP + Show.
“You can purchase VIP Meet and Greet on backstreetboys.com and once they’re sold out, they’re gone.”
While the safest place to buy Backstreet Boys VIP meet and greet has ALWAYS been at their official website, we can officially confirm that if VIP is sold out, there will NOT be more added at the door. So, GET YOURS EARLY!
Bonus: If you’re a fan club member, you get first dibs on VIP. Join here!
“I heard there’s a VIP Meet and Greet with added perks like backstage tour and soundcheck….and it’s cheaper!”
Several people have asked about this one. The saying, “if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is” is the only thing true here.
I don’t care who you are, where you’re from, what you did…. you’re not getting backstage unless you know the Boys or their family personally (and by personally, I don’t mean via social media). As for soundcheck, no one is allowed in during the Vegas run except for the Boys, their team, and their family.
What IS included is a sweet VIP lounge where you can sometimes hear the Boys running through soundcheck, grab some snacks (THIS IS MONUMENTAL – THE BOYS HAVE NEVER FED US!), and take some fun pics with friends while you wait.
If you’re concerned that you have purchased an invalid VIP meet and greet, please verify with Wonderful Union or shoot us an email. You can also always ask the person you purchased from to send you a confirmation from WU.
“VIP is rushed and not worth it.”
This is really a personal opinion and if you don’t want to purchase VIP, you 1000% don’t have to. However, you M I G H T experience FOMO.
Personally, while we both went the first week and there were kinks to be worked out, we believe that it is the best VIP experience yet. It’s clear that the team listened to us (within reason) and tried to make the overall atmosphere VIP, which we really appreciated.
The time with the actual Backstreet Boys is what you make it. I, for one, have never been cut off when I’m saying something that I want to say. It is quick, but obviously so…they’ve got 100 more people to get through. HOWEVER, I think you could spend 15 minutes with the Backstreet Boys and still feel like it was a blink because, let’s face it, sometimes we black out. In our opinion, VIP is just long enough not to be awkward and say something stupid 🙂
Plus, if you said everything the first time, what would you say the next time? Because you know you can’t just do it once.
“The Backstreet Boys give the best hugs ever!”
Anyone who has been to VIP can tell you that this IS the reason they want to keep going back. You think electric blankets are great? Wait until you have a Howie, Nick, Brian, Kevin or AJ wrapped around you! Unfortunately, you can’t buy those at WalMart.
“We’re NEVERRRR getting the VIP posters, are we?”
Backstreet time. No one involved in the poster-mailing process wants anyone to wait. No need to get angry – you WILL get it. Having to nail down five men to sign posters when they’re not in a bus or venue all day to force a Sharpie into their hands can be hard work. Consider it a holiday gift!
