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
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.
2. BSB: The Experience
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
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!
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!

(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!)
