Been To A #BSBVegas Afterparty? Share Your Experience!

We’ve been to Backstreet Boys afterparties on tour, but the Las Vegas afterparties at Chateau Night Club are on a whole other level! With many more to come, we don’t want anyone to miss out on this hang-with-the-boys experience.

If you’ve been to an afterparty during the Backstreet Boys’ Larger Than Life run, we want to hear from you. Fill out the form below to be included in an upcoming post. Tell us all the juicy details, any tips you may have learned, and how much fun you had!

Backstreet Dads: Some Of The Sweetest Things The Backstreet Boys Have Said About Fatherhood

A few years ago, we did a Father’s Day series of posts on each Backstreet Boy (except for Nick because we’re not psychics all the time 😉 ). This year, we decided to keep it simple and post a few of the sweetest words and advice that Kevin, Howie, AJ, Brian and Nick have shared about their children and about being fathers. If this doesn’t melt you, we don’t know what will!

AJ_WordsBrian_WordsHowie_WordsKevin_WordsNick_Words

We’ve written multiple times about how much we love seeing these Boys with their children, so we won’t go back into it. All we have to say is that we are SO proud of the fathers that each of these men have become and we can’t wait to watch Maxwell, Mason, Lyric, Ava, Baylee, Holden, James and Odin grow up and become everything their parents work so hard to instill in them.

Shout out to our own fathers who have taught us so many things, but also bought us Backstreet Boys tickets, listened to their music with us, and driven us to concerts before we could do for ourselves.

Last but not least, the fathers who are husbands of fans, those who keep the kids on the weekends we need a roadtrip with the girls, the times we NEED to cruise with the Backstreet Boys, and those who find a sitter and come along for the ride – you the real MVP!

Happy Father’s Day!

14 People Who Surprised Fans With Backstreet Boys Themed Gifts

Because the Backstreet Boys have been together for 20+ years, most of us have been fans for quite a long time. What this means is that more often than not, if the Boys are in town, on TV, in the news, turning around twice in the presence of our friends and family, they’re going to tell us about it.

Sometimes, though, those closest to us have done the kindest Backstreet-themed things for us, even if they’re not fans themselves. We gave you an opportunity a few weeks ago to tell us about the best BSB surprises you’ve ever received and give a shout out to those who have done these things for you.

We must say, we are very impressed (and super jealous)!

“My friend, Ruthie, who I met at the This Is Us tour in 2010, bought me VIP and a flight to see Backstreet Boys and Florida Georgia line in Chicago in August to celebrate my up and coming wedding. It was so sweet of her and I’m super excited to make these new memories with her.” – Brittany Nicole

“I know it’s not the typical friend story. When I was younger I had an older couple that was friends with my family. Anyways they are like another set of parents to me. But long story short. They were nice enough to invite me to their house and watch the “Welcome home New Years concert back in the day. They had bought my tickets to both the Millennium tour and Black & Blue tour. I’m so grateful that have a allowed a teenage girl to live out some of her dreams and see her idols in person!” – Melissa Wiggins

“We knew a couple visiting Florida from Vancouver, whom we’d first met less than a year earlier on the first BSB cruise, so we invited them to stay with us. The wife and I were going to see the NKOTBSB show while our men hung out. When I got out of work the day they arrived, I parked in my garage and saw a piece of paper taped to the door to the house. They had surprised me with a gold VIP for the show! It was a very generous gift, and they said it was to thank us for allowing them to stay at our house. It was an amazing show and experience I’ll never forget!” – Sandra

“In 2014, my brother threw me a BSB themed surprise birthday party. It was truely a surprise! He went through all my BSB stuff and took posters and all. My birthday cake even included the first picture I took with Howie! So much fun. When I walked into my parents house they all yelled surprise and Backstreets back started playing! It was awesome and so funny at the same time. I have some cool pictures to share if you want to see.” – Yadachi Porto

“I meet Andie before the 2014 cruise. Since then we have traveled near and far for many Backstreet events. Last November she sent me a text asking what I was doing the weekend of March 10/11. I said nothing and she surprised me with tickets to both concert dates in Vegas. She was like Merry Christmas and Happy Early Birthday! I was completely shocked. We are always thinking of ways to surprise each other and this was over the top! I’m thankful for our friendship and was completely overwhelmed by her gesture.” – Ashley Robinson

“In 2011, for the NKOTBSB tour, I had planned to do my first real VIP with my friends in Orlando, but my mom had gotten sick and I lost my concert photography job due to cutbacks and wasn’t able to afford it. Thankfully my friend Sarah and several other friends got together and for my birthday (since the concert was 10 days later), got me a Gold VIP. One of the nicest things anybody has done for me!” – Karah-Leigh

“My BSB sister Elin Jakobsen has given me very cool gifts. I’m a Brian girl. The last gift was a T-shirt saying: ‘It’s a Brian thing. You wouldn’t understand.’ And for my 40th Birthday party, she gave me the Show’Em movie and a beautiful heartfelt letter with a picture of shirtless Brian from the Show’em music video.” – Sylvi-Ann Haugen

“My best friend invited me to a “brides day” before I got married. It was just about the the two of us – a walk down on memory Lane. After a whole day of fun girl activities we sat down and watched old concert tapes all day. She always liked the boys but was not a huge fan and at that time my fangirl was pretty much sleeping – but that day? It got me hooked all over again. So much that I made a Journey song to my wedding song (there are these old concert recordings where Nick sings ‘Open Arms’).” – Jessica

“My friends threw me a BSB themed birthday party. There were cups that said BSB, cake had BSB written on it, BSB decorations and I even had a BSB birthday crown. It was awesome.” – Noora

“When I was 13, my friend Elsbeth surprised me with an invitation to go with her to a Backstreet Boys concert. Into the Millennium tour. This was my first concert ever and the boys just stole my heart immediately. So, thank you Elsbeth for taking me. It changed my life.” – Nele

“It’s my Godfather who did something awesome for me. I was in 7th or 8th grade. He told me for every A I got in my report card, he would give me $100. Little did he know, I was a straight A student  When he realized he would owe me like $1000, he called a friend who called a friend who called a friend, and surprised me with 3rd row floor tickets for the next Bsckstreet Boys concert ️It was the first time I got that close at the time.” – Anne

“My best friend Shiran made me for my birthday a book that called ‘Once Upon A Backstreet Time’. Inside the book there are all the experiences that relate to the Backstreet (shows, tweets, meet and greet, cruise, after party etc.).” – Efrat

“One of my really close friends, who’s basically like family, was supposed to go to the IAWLT tour with me in 8/13. We had accidentally purchased tickets on different days. We just ignored it because there were other people coming to both shows anyway, so days/weeks pass, and she calls me to tell me she can’t make it because of an emergency. So she gave me the ticket to my VERY first BSB show EVER! And, I got to see them TWICE that weekend, and at AGT (the two shows were in Jersey.) THANKS YIRIA!” – Deyanira Santana

“My best friend, Jeff, told me he had a surprise for me that would make me love the boys even more. I had no idea what it could be. When I saw him next he handed me a clear container with all the action figures from Burger King in it! I squealed and fangirled and laughed. He said “wait there’s more!” And then his mom came in with something big concealed by a blanket, when she removed the blanket it was a framed poster from the millennium era. Then I noticed the signatures and I legit screamed. Apparently his other best friend was at a garage sale, saw the stuff and told Jeff about it knowing I loved bsb so he bought them and Jeff paid him back. The poster is hanging on my wall as a reminder of how awesome my best friend is.” – Dani

10 (More) Suggestions For Backstreet Boys Cruise Themes

Before the 2016 Backstreet Boys Euro Cruise, we presented new potential cruise themes that we’d love to see in the future. Unfortunately, none of our suggestions were actual chosen themes, but we can always dream!

With the cruise next year already being sold out (WHAT?!) and being the 25th anniversary, there’s no option but for it to be the best yet. We’ve come up with 10 more ideas for themes in hopes that if the Boys are lacking ideas, they’ll stumble upon this little post. Cross your fingers!

1. 90s Night

giphy8

This really doesn’t need an explanation as 95% of us were there for the 90s. We know the style, we know the music, we know the 90s was the best decade ever and we want the excuse to relive it any chance we get. Grab your scrunchies. your daisy dresses, your Friends dvds and let’s do this!

2. Make Believe Night 

giphy9

A play on the BSB song of the same name, here’s your chance to play make believe like you did as a child. Princes and princesses, aliens and unicorns – let your imagination run!

We really just wanted an excuse to infuse some aliens into the cruise, honestly.

3. FantaSea Night

giphy10

Get your minds out of the gutter unless you find pirates sexy – we won’t judge! We propose that FantaSea Night consist of all things sea-related – pirates, wenches, and mermaids, oh my. We’re dying to see the BSB Pirates Of The Carribean style and a mermaids-allowed theme is the perfect excuse to buy the rainbow highlighter we’ve been eyeing!

4. Heroes and Villains

giphy11

Not all heroes wear capes – but they probably will on the cruise! For those who aren’t into the superhero lifestyle, pick the villain of your choice and play it up. It’ll be even more fun if one of the Boys just happens to be your arch nemesis for the night – we smell an awesome photo op!

This is also a good one for planning with a group of your friends and being creative by making your own superhero!

5. Royal Ball

giphy12

If a formal night is what you’re looking for, this theme is for you! “We could be kings and queens” ring a bell? Grab your crowns, tiaras, and glass slippers (except don’t) and get on board for this theme. What’s better than Prince Charming? Five of them in the form of Nick, Brian, AJ, Kevin and Howie. No one can resist a suave looking Backstreet Boy (or finding another use for that formal dress you purchased years ago).

Think you can’t get drunk in a ball gown? Whatever. Cinderella was obvious drunk to leave that shoe behind.

6. Hoedown Showdown

giphy13

C’mon y’all! Everyone loves a good Southern night (or at least love Kevin and Brian) and it’s a pretty simple theme. Grab your jeans, your plaid, your boots, cowboy hats and git it!

Are you REALLY going to turn down a cowboy-themed-Backstreet Boy? Really?

Disclaimer: This is NOT because I’m from Nashville (or I’d call it honky tonk night).

7. Backstreet Festival

giphy14

Couldn’t make it to a summer music festival and wear all those trendy festival clothes? Into the Woodstock look? Literally just want to wear a bikini top (uhh..with bottoms) and be in theme? This one is for you. Imagine a Coachella vibe where it’s strictly Backstreet. We haven’t decided how the Boys would dress for this one, but we promise it’ll be better than Fyre Fest! (Look it up.)

8. Fiesta En Fuego

giphy15

It’s not lost on anyone that we will be on the boat on May 5th AKA Cinco De Mayo. To avoid the risk of potentially being offensive yada, yada, yada…we present Fiesta En Fuego! Literally, a party on fire. We’re thinking fiery colors (red, orange, etc.), a little “Hot, Hot, Hot”, and a whole lot of margaritas. Also, can someone come around passing out tacos or…?

9. Gatsby Night

giphy16

A little party never killed nobody, says a song from the Great Gatsby remake. Anyone that has read or watched Gatsby knows that Jay Gatsby was known for his lavish parties and we can perfectly envision such a party on the cruise. Grab your 1920s garb (flapper dresses, beads, feathers, etc.) and look for the green light across the water!

10. Wonderland

giphy17

Falling down the rabbit hole will never be as fun as it will be when your friends AND the Backstreet Boys are involved. We love the idea of replicating a wacky Wonderland on the cruise and painting the roses red! There’s plenty of wild characters and costuming to choose from.

Oh, and we’d like to petition to see Kevin as the Queen of Hearts and Nick as Alice, of course.

Or maybe Kevin should be the caterpillar? OK. We really need this theme.

Which theme suggestion is your favorite? Have one of your own? We want to hear it all!

5 Updates On What The Backstreet Boys Are Doing Right Now

The Backstreet Boys have been on a break from their Vegas shows since the end of April, but it has been an anything-but-restful break. Instead of our planned Vegas April happenings review, we’ve decided to instead catch everyone up on all of the things Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ and Nick have been working on, attending, and ultimately, killing (in the best way).

1. AJ McLean To Voice New Disney Character In Lion Guard

medium-ujdvi60zdrz_5w5g1zjzz0_l1pjjtpiifhdyysrmvja

After seeing AJ’s [literal] killer performance in Dead 7 last year as Johnny Vermillion, we had no doubt that we’d see him back on the screen soon. But Disney?! We wouldn’t have predicted it, but we are 100% about it.

AJ will be playing a blind golden mole named Kuchimba… who also thinks he’s a ninja. He also, of course, has a fantastic singing voice. Read more about the role and how it came to be here.

2. Those Guys From The Viral “Back To The 90s” Video Were Invited To Vegas.

back-to-the-90s-garrett-clayton

If you haven’t seen this nostalgia-heavy video yet, WATCH IT ASAP!

After the video became a viral sensation, everyone wanted to talk to this faux-boyband, including AJ. Check out what happened in the video below!

3. Nick Carter Became BFF With Steve Aoki.

medium-acomtuhmisnhmoff4atb0fat-2gafukwk_ijoosjgvu

No one that showed up to see EDM superstar Steve Aoki at Omnia Nightclub in Vegas a few weeks ago expected to also see a Backstreet Boy.

Yet there he was. Nick Carter joined Steve for a hot mix of “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” and well… just watch the videos (and the post on nickcarter.net). We’re super jealous of anyone that was there (and we really hope it happens again)!

(Sorry for all of the parentheses :))

4. The Boys Return To Wango Tango!

medium-oz00j2tmwiqw4j3ntpmegefa3bxp6uz7qk6s9wklfoa

The Backstreet Boys reemerged together to play 93.3 Summer Kick Off in Chula Vista, CA on Friday, where they obviously killed it…. and impressed every One Direction fan who threatened to sue 1D if they came back without choreography and hoped that 1D’s return would be as bomb as Backstreet’s.

Now… to Wango Tango the next night… our Boys SHUT. IT. DOWN.

Literally.

Kevin, Howie, AJ, Brian and Nick brought a sample of their current Vegas show to the SoCal stage and were honestly the highlight of the night, but we could be a little biased. This was their first time on the festival’s stage in 10+ years and they couldn’t have made us prouder (or made us want to go back to Vegas) more. Thanks to WeirdWorldChile for capturing the live stream below!

Tell us you aren’t obsessed.

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL…

The Boys spent a good bit of time talking to media outlets on the Red Carpet about a new album, a new tour (IT’S HAPPENING, NAYSAYERS), babies, and how weird BSB would be without Howie D. We’ve put them all in one place just for your enjoyment.

5. The Backstreet Boys at ABC Upfront + Nick Joins Boyband

When all five Backstreet Boys flew into New York on Monday, we knew something was up (that was probably none of our business, but…you know…). We knew that Nick was appearing in-studio with Good Morning Footballbut WHAT ELSE?

We’ll tell you what else.

These sneaky sneakers performed as entertainment at ABC Upfront, an event that previews / announces / gives insight to all upcoming shows on ABC network for the upcoming year. If you’re asking us to TELL YOU WHY, we will.

ABC is premiering a new reality competition this Summer entitled Boy Band, where male contestants will compete for a chance to join a band and sign a record deal. Why are we telling you this? Because our very own Nick Carter is joining Baby Spice (Emma Bunten) as a judge… er, “architect”. Similar to The Voice, these architects will mentor the gentleman and have say in who competes before America gets a chance to vote.

WE. CAN. NOT. WAIT.

As soon as we have more details about the show, we will post. For now, you can start supporting by following their Twitter account.

For now, enjoy clips of the Boys performing at Upfront!

 

 

 

 

 

Is this enough news for you!? Take it all in, fan-mily. It’s a GREAT time for the Backstreet Boys, but it’s never lost on us how lucky we are that they are still out there doing these amazing things for themselves and for us.

In conclusion, these are the things we have to look forward to:

  • AJ in Lion Guard (and maybe releasing his solo album but…)
  • Nick on Boy Band
  • The rest of BSBVegas (and a possible extension)
  • A world tour (Do not fight me on this – it IS happening)
  • Their 10th album
  • The acoustic album they keep mentioning
  • A few more festivals
  • A few conventions if you have a Nick or AJ preference
  • Taking over the world with the Backstreet Boys… like we’ve been working on for 24 years.
  • BSB Cruise 2018
  • SO. MUCH. MORE.

As always, we’ll keep up so you don’t have to!

Oh, and also, Zac Efron loves the Backstreet Boys. WHAT?!

A Bunch Of Tweets About Moms and Backstreet Boys

Let’s be real. Many of us grew up hoping and praying (and sometimes succeeding) that our mom would love the Backstreet Boys as much as we did. Some of us, in our time as fans, have actually become moms.

In honor of Mother’s Day, we gathered some of the best mom-themed tweets about the Backstreet Boys. From blasting the Boys to going to concerts to generally hilarious mom-things to say, here’s a friendly reminder that our moms will always be the perfect fans.
