— SCROLL TO BOTTOM FOR UPDATED INFO —
Everyone has heard about the Backstreet Boys during a short stint in Vegas by now. Call it a rumor, call it a leak, call it what you want – we’re here to help you keep up with everything you need to know!
At this point, nothing has been officially announced, but several of the Boys have hinted at a September announcement so, stay tuned. There seems to be some confusion about what exactly will go down in Vegas. Here’s what we DO know:
- The concerts that the Backstreet Boys are doing at the beginning of 2017 are NOT kicking off a new world tour. While they are set to release a new album in 2017, the Boys have confirmed in various conversations with fans that a tour will not begin until at least Summer. So, the usual.
- The concerts are not considered a residency. As stated by a few of the Boys before their lips were zipped, this run of RUMORED nine shows would a “trial” to see how well the Backstreet Boys would fare, should they decide to do a residency in the future. They have all made it clear that if a residency was a route they chose to go, it would not be until after a world tour supporting the upcoming album.
- This is not an event like NKOTB ….that we know of. The NKOTB: After Dark event was sort of like a mini-cruise on land and not what this sounds like.
- AJ mentioned at a recent convention appearance that it would take place over three weekends. For those of you thinking you’d stay the whole time and attend every show, this might put a hitch in your plans!
- Nothing has been mentioned about pricing. Residencies sometimes have different pricing than normal concerts, but considering this is not a residency, we know nothing. Don’t freak!
As soon as things are confirmed, we will update here. NOTHING is confirmed until it is on backstreetboys.com. If you have any questions that you think you might need answered, feel free to ask!
