Is The Backstreet Boys’ VIP Meet & Greet Worth It? Here’s What We Think.

Meet /mēt/ (verb): come into the presence or company of (someone) by chance or arrangement

Greet /ɡrēt/ (verb): give a polite word or sign of welcome or recognition to (someone) on meeting; receive or acknowledge (something) in a specified way; become apparent to or be noticed by (someone) on arrival somewhere.


Every tour, residency, and any event where the Backstreet Boys have offered any kind of Meet and Greet, VIP upgrades, etc., we’re always asked the same question — Is VIP Meet & Greet worth it?

The answer is… that it’s different for everyone. It’s a matter of priority, expectations, and personal perspective. So, in short, the answer is that we have no real answer, but we can tell you what we think.

When we were kids, the idea of meeting the Backstreet Boys was a pipe dream. They were untouchable. They were only on our televisions. They were only 36 rows away from your seat at their sold out concert. Meeting Kevin, Howie, AJ, Brian and Nick was something we could only dream about.

Sure, there were radio contests and there was the chance that you may know somebody who knew somebody who could maybe you into their presence and on the off chance that you did get a photo with them, you barely got a millisecond to say anything.

Fast forward to the Never Gone tour where you had to join the fanclub to enter to win admittance into their soundcheck. We entered, some of us won, and although it wasn’t a chance to meet the Boys, it was a chance to be closer and they were some of the best days of our lives.

Eventually, things evolved into being able to purchase a VIP Meet and Greet, which included various additions depending on the era. Some included backstage tours led by one of the Boys, some included soundcheck, some included merchandise, etc.

All of them included a meet and greet with the Backstreet Boys. The one thing that we had dreamed about since becoming a fan and there it was – an option for us to purchase. It was an option for us to tell them our names, to say thank you, to hug the people that made the music that got you through the best times and worst times, and have it commemorated forever.

But at some point, it went from being less about Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ and Nick and more about us, us, us. Things went from being grateful for the opportunity to why do we have to wait so long? Why are they overselling? Why aren’t they adding more? Why can’t they do it for free? Why aren’t they offering ____ like they did last tour? Why are we let in and left? Why do they call it VIP if we’re not treated like VIP? Why is am I paying for a lounge I don’t care about? Why don’t I get enough time to use the lounge? Why isn’t the lounge filled with food I want? Why can I not bring props to make my photo even more different? Why can’t I bring gifts? And the all time most asked question — why is meet and greet so quick?

As we’ve stated on our Twitter, if the Backstreet Boys spent 2 minutes with every person who went through the meet & greet line, they would be standing there for over two hours before performing a two hour show…every night. We’ve seen multiple people suggest “tricks” to stretch out their meet and greet, but the truth of the matter is, we wouldn’t suggest being that person either. The truth is — if you’re chill and plan out what you want to say, you’ll have plenty of time to say what you want and make it count. Personally, we’ve always been able to say most of what we wanted to say and do what we wanted to do and when we haven’t, it’s been our own faults. The Boys have been nothing but kind and willing to listen. They’ve been MORE than willing to comply with crazy photo ideas and make an effort to make the most of the time that we are all given together.

Quality > Quantity. It IS possible to have an amazing 30 seconds that you will talk about for the rest of your life, but it’s up to you and your attitude walking into it.

The truth about VIP Meet & Greet is that it’s up to you. This tour is offering an actual limited number VIP experience with a backstage lounge with snacks, photo opportunities with your friends, and a place to chill while you wait (which you might not be able to fully appreciate unless you’ve been to VIP on past tours, waited for hours in the heat outside and had to eat before you came) and meet and greet. You get the chance to meet your favorite band members, to hug them, to thank them, to create a memory. Whether you think it’s enough that they’ll remember you the next time or not, why does it matter? You’ll remember it. We guarantee that you’ll treasure it. And you’ll have a friggin photo to prove it! With YOU by yourself with ALL. FIVE. BACKSTREET BOYS.

The truth about VIP Meet & Greet is that you owe it to yourself. Yeah, of course the Backstreet Boys need fans to show up, but when it comes down to it – VIP is going to mean more to each of us. Every M&G serves as the moments we’ve dreamed about when we were teenage girls with posters on our walls coming to fruition. Every M&G is a different experience and an opportunity to make the best out of a concert experience and time with your friends (or to make new ones). You owe it to the girl (or boy) who never thought they would be cool enough to do this.

Our biggest, most honest suggestion is not to sabotage your own decision or experience by listening to those who have. For every person complaining, there are 100 people who wouldn’t trade their VIP for a thing and would do it again in a heartbeat. If you can live in the present, go in without expectations and with a sense of gratitude, we guarantee that you won’t regret it. However, you also owe it to yourself to read honest reviews beforehand and decide if it is something that you would be satisfied paying for for what you receive. If it’s not, that’s okay too!

We would like to end this post by also saying that what you can afford does not make or break your experience either. If you can’t swing VIP or you weren’t able to grab one for your show, if the VIP experience doesn’t sound like it’s for you, if you’re going alone or sitting in the nosebleeds, your Backstreet Boys experience is still what. you. make. it. And if you haven’t guessed by now, that’s pretty much how we feel about everything.

A New Era of Backstreet: Everything You Might Have Missed About ‘DNA’ Album + World Tour (So Far)

It’s finally here!!

While we LOVE the Vegas residency, collabs, solo work and whatnot, we have been waited for years (literally) for a new Backstreet Boys album and tour. We’ve heard songs that “may or may not be” on the album on the 2018 cruise, we’ve been promised for a while, and we’ve gotten two singles and now…. THE TIME HAS COME.

And boy has it come!

FACT OR FICTION: #BSBVegas Backstreet Boys VIP Meet & Greet Edition

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 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!

#BSBVegas FAQ: Part Two – General Admission and VIP vs. After Party

The time has come again for Backstreet to take back Las Vegas with their shows at The Axis at Planet Hollywood and boy, are we ready for it! After their EPIC ACM performance with Florida Georgia Line and a few announcements for upcoming festival appearances, the need to see our fantastic five has only grown stronger. Anyone else already been to Vegas and watching flight prices to go back or is that just us?

We answered a few questions in the first run here and now that we’ve all had time to get acclimated, we’re answering more!

There seems to be two MAJOR questions being asked and we’re here to give you facts and an honest opinion to answer both.

What Time Do I Need To Line Up For General Admission?


  • Those with VIP Meet and Greet and Beat The Line General Admission tickets ARE let into the venue first.
  • Just because they are let into the venue first does not mean you are guaranteed first in line. What we mean by this is… if you are let into the venue and go to buy a drink or merch before getting into line, there is not really a guarantee that you will be up front in line.
  • You are allowed to line up for General Admission as early as you like – we saw people there in the early afternoon.
  • There is NOT a “better side” to be on. The Boys try to divide themselves as much as possible. Being on the right side, we did see all of them.
  • RUNNING into the “pit” will get you stopped by security – they’re not playing.
  • You will be standing the whole time, but there is plenty of room to move around if you don’t try to squeeze into a spot.
  • If you think not being against the stage means no Boy time, you’re wrong. They can definitely see everyone standing there.


  • Don’t stress lining up early. For most everyone we have talked to, the time people got in line did NOT mean a better or worse spot in the GA pit. We can not stress enough – THERE IS NOT A BAD SPOT. Once doors open, you have to split and go through metal detectors, then a photographer takes a photo of you and your friends against a background (for later purchase) before you even head down to the line to get INTO GA. There are a number of factors that could speed you up / slow you down. If you would rather use your time to sight see or relax, go for it! If waiting to line up stresses you out, go ahead! Just make sure you’re ENJOYING yourself – not sabotaging your experience.
  • VIP Tables decidedly have the best view of the entire stage in our opinion, but there is an energy in the GA that you can’t get anywhere else. The Boys don’t interact *quite* as much as during IAWLT, but that could change as they get more comfortable. We definitely got our fair share and Kevin has been drinking peoples beers since then!
  • As aforementioned, we didn’t feel like we got jipped by getting to see some Boys more than others – it was pretty fair for both sides.
  • Make friends with those around you. If you have to pee, they’ll stretch to save your spot and if they know your favorite Boy is coming, maybe they’ll move aside so you can have your moment (and maybe even take a photo)!
  • HAVE FUN! Like we said, the Boys can see you. If you’re standing there like you don’t know you’re at a BSB concert, it will make them sad. DON’T MAKE A BACKSTREET BOY SAD.

Should I Do VIP Meet and Greet or an Ultimate Afterparty Package?!

This is really subjective. The experience that’s right for you depends on what you want out of it. So let’s break it down…



  • PRO – We didn’t feel like we were wasting our time waiting around. Once we were checked in, we got our drinks and got to hang out in a room with our friends until it was time to meet the BSB.
  • PRO – We were fresh. By fresh, I mean we weren’t dancing around at a concert and sweating for three hours before we met the Boys. Our faces were still in place and body parts were stilled tucked in properly.
  • PRO – The professional photo with all five guys. We trust Justin Segura with our VIP lives.
  • PRO – Souvenirs! The photobooth gifs have been making their way onto every fan’s social media and we really want that thing on tour (and in our houses).
  • CON – The concert HAS to start on time. If the Backstreet Boys are running behind, your experience may be a little tighter time wise. However, we will say that Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ and Nick are very considerate if there’s something you’re trying to say to them and will do their best to give you a chance.
  • CON – No candids. Because your meet and greet experience is individual, it’s up to you to remember everything that happened.


  • PRO: You’re in the VIP section….WITH the Backstreet Boys! You can’t really understand what a perk this is until you’re there, but Chateau can get REALLY crowded on the weekends. Because you’re in this section, you’re treated like an actual VIP with the BSB present.
  • PRO: Selfies! Who doesn’t love a good selfie with a BSB? It’s instant and you can make sure you’re getting your best side. The Boys have been really good with trying to get selfies with anyone who wants one in the VIP.
  • PRO: Your friends have your back. As we mentioned before, in the VIP meet and greet, you’re going in individually and holding it down on your own. It’s GREAT for the pic and the experience, but sucks if you can’t remember a thing. One our favorite parts about the afterparty is that if you’re chatting with / dancing with / in the vicinity of your favorite Backstreet Boy, your friend (or maybe a stranger) can snap a shot so you can remember forever!
  • PRO: There ain’t no party like a Backstreet party! Everyone is high off of the concert, but the atmosphere is chill, not as regimented and allows the Boys to come to you.
  • CON: You might be tired. After a whole day and dancing all night, a club in Vegas might be the last thing you want to do. It’s something to consider.
  • CON: Selfies are likely, but not guaranteed. While the Boys DO try to come to you, if you hang back, you might miss out.
  • CON: You never know who might show up. It could be one BSB, it could be four or five. If it’s important to you to meet ALL five, the AP is not for you.


We listed pros and cons to try to break it down into things you might not think about, but truth be told, the pro side on both experiences FAR outweigh the cons. They’re really just terms of preference.

If your priority is to meet all five Backstreet Boys, 100% look great in a professional photo, have a more managed experience and time to hang with your friends in a quieter environment, VIP Meet and Greet is for you.

If your priority is to hang out with a few Backstreet Boys in a party atmosphere late into the night with a chill vibe and less structure, but still an intimate VIP section setting, the Ultimate Party Package will not disappoint.

….You can always do both. 🙂

What Happened In Vegas: A #BSBVegas VIP and Concert Review

As soon as we found out when the Backstreet Boys would be taking over Las Vegas, we were aware that we, too, would have to take over the same week. No way were we going to miss this epic occasion and definitely no way could we wait weeks before seeing it!

So here we are, ready to tell you everything you need to know (and maybe some things you didn’t)! Normally, our posts are pretty objective and while we’ll try to stay that way here, some things we can’t help but weigh in with our own opinions.

If there’s anything we don’t cover, definitely hit us up to ask!

VIP Meet And Greet

The Pre-Show VIP Lounge

Once upon a time, Backstreet fans going to VIP meet and greets were SO over waiting in lines for hours on end. Wonderful Union listened to them and BOOM! The birth of the pre-show VIP exclusive lounge.

Upon arrival, we were fairly quickly checked in, given our lanyards (which change photos every night), two drink tickets and directed upstairs. We were then lined up to get drinks from the bar (also exclusively for VIP goers since there was no one else in the venue). For those asking what drinks are offered, everything from water to wine to champagne to ale to soda. If you consume liquids, you are covered. Also, you don’t HAVE to wait here if you don’t want. You can definitely bypass and come back.

While you’re waiting, you can take your photo with friends in front of a snazzy looking Red Carpet-esque background. This is the perfect opportunity to get those pre-BSB jitters out!


After getting our drinks (which you CAN take into the venue with you if you’re still drinking them by them), we moved into the lounge. From the photos above, you can see that it’s a totally chill club-like atmosphere. There are glow colored light orbs, a snack table, cool seating with oversized games to play while you wait.

There’s also a REALLY cool photobooth (put together by our favorite BSB photog, Justin Segura). There will be a line of people waiting to jump inside so if you want to bypass and chill with friends, we definitely had time after the meet and greet to snap our pics! You  don’t want to miss it though. It comes complete with head-size BSBmojis on a stick (that we really want to own), props and fantastic lighting (seriously – I need that light in my life).

 These photos from the photobooth will come to you via text or email and ready for you to share online! Don’t worry if you don’t get them immediately – the wifi is spotty in the hotel. We got ours after we already got home… 24 hours later. What a nice parting gift!

Meet and Greet


You can chill in the lounge until you line up for the photo. At our VIP experiences, we were lined up all at once. Since then, they’re trying out dividing everyone into groups so not everyone has to line up at once and you get more time to utilize the lounge while you wait, which is actually a really good idea (especially for those in fancy shoes).

Simply speaking from our own experience and observing others, the actual act of meeting the Boys is what you make it. We saw people go in with props, hats, ideas, etc. for their photo and we saw people go in, take a photo and come straight out. From the time Kristie went on Friday until we both went on Saturday, things were being worked out to make for a smoother experience.

The Boys were as kind as they always have been. Brian came out from behind the screen (where photos were being taken) to goof around and seemingly put everyone at ease, then he welcomed every person with a hug. Every. Single. Person. It was Brian, AJ, Nick, Kevin and Howie… for those of you who would like to know order ahead of time. Each of them took the time to hug everyone and at least say a little something. We definitely had time for some conversation.

We didn’t feel rushed at all – which is HUGE for VIP. A sold out meet and greet has around 150 and everyone seemed to be satisfied with the time they got. No one yelled at us to keep moving and everyone was insanely friendly.

Note: if you are someone that brings gifts to the Boys for shows, don’t. You will be made to check your bag upon entry into the venue and retrieve it later. Save the room in your luggage for merch!

Also, there is no group option for meet and greet. We used one of our individuals for a photo with all of us (which IS allowed).

Following meet and greet, we were sent back into the lounge where, as I said above, we had time to snap some shots in the photobooth.

….And freak out about meeting all of our Boys. Because that never gets old.

The Show


We’ll admit… we judged the show by the setlist before we saw the show. It’s void of anything from IAWLT and, as expected, is made up of mostly hits and singles with a few surprises (“Undone” and “Darlin'”, anyone?). For anyone wanting a timeline, the show started around 9:10ish and is 96 minutes long (thanks venue guy).

We’re happy to say that WE. WERE. WRONG. (Ok, I’m never REALLY happy to say that, but in this case…)

Here’s where we will do our best not to spoil too much for those who want to be completely surprised. Some of the things we loved the most (scroll past if you don’t want to know ANYTHING):

  • The 12 minute opening megamix video that can be found here and the way the Boys appear onstage (WHAT?! Did NOT see that coming!)
  • Kevin joining in on “Undone”.
  • The way the Backstreet Boys collectively sound the same live as they do on the albums. Obviously, this is nothing new, but for some reason, it is very striking inside the Axis theater.
  • We never expected “The Call” to be SO sexy! Wow.
  • Something about AJ and Kevin rapping during “Get Down” really hyped us.
  • The thought of dancers added to the show wasn’t something we were always crazy about, but they really DO add to the show.
  • Brian. Littrell. Seriously, whatever he has been doing for his voice and whatever the group is doing to help is working. So much so that the first night either of us were there, we found ourselves in inevitable tears and cheering just a little bit louder.
  • There’s a few ballroom moves (that we’re pretty sure Sharna Burgess had a hand in) that left us remembering how much Nick deserved that Mirrorball Trophy, but whatever. We also forgot that Kevin was ballroom trained until we saw those moves! Seriously though, all of the choreography is ON point.
  • The wardrobe…whew!
  • The whole production!

There’s also not a bad seat in the house. Let us show you!

Table Seating

These photos were taken from a table on the right side facing the stage. The view is probably the best you can get because there is NO ONE in front of you and the longer-armed Backstreet Boys can reach you pretty well. For those of you that have purchased a seat at a VIP table that included a bottle of champagne, please be aware that the bottle does not arrive until mid show. Pace yourselves! Being in the front means everyone can see you, including the Backstreet Boys. You don’t want to get sloppy.

Section 104, Row A

These photos are from section 104, row A, directly behind the second row of tables. It’s definitely a good spot if you want to see the whole stage and have a seat. When the Boys come to the “second stage”, we had a completely unblocked view of whoever was in front of us at the time. It was, however, hard to see anyone at the other end of the second stage. They all go back and forth though, so you get a chance to see everyone!

SPOILER: AJ walked right down our aisle in front of us while going back to the stage during “All I Have To Give”. When I say in front of us, I mean that he could literally step on our feet.

General Admission AKA The Pit

To be honest, being in the pit was our last night and we were tired. We were almost dreading it (the standing, not the show) after having seats and great views.

We’re here to tell you that as soon as the show started, we regretted ever regretting it. Besides the benefit of possible getting a hand touched or being seen / serenaded by Kevin, Brian, Howie, Nick or AJ, there’s just an energy in the pit that you can’t get from anywhere else in the venue. You’re IN the stage. You’re IN the show. You have no choice but to dance your heart out and feel good about it. There was also plenty of room to move around if you didn’t squeeze yourself into a small spot.

It also makes for great people watching when you turn to face the audience.

Overall, we are not lying when we tell you that if you treat yourself to ANYTHING in 2017, this should be it. The whole experience was one that we would repeat and, even though it’s only been a week since we were there, we’re ready to go back this instant!

As we stated in a previous post, this show would not have been nearly as great if it weren’t for each individual Backstreet Boy bringing something to the table or the fans who showed up, screamed loudly, and sang along to every word. Vegas is for all of us and, if you can, get yourself there to enjoy it.

Special thanks to Wonderful Union (you know who you are) for listening to us and pulling this together and continuing to listen and continuing to change things until it is ultimately perfection!

Did we leave anything out? Do you have questions? Want more photos? We have thousands. Hit us up via Twitter, Facebook, or email and we’ll tell you all the truths you need to know. Also, check out our BSB Vegas FAQ.

…. And don’t forget to share your experiences with us! Next week, we’ll start our weekly “What Happens In Vegas” posts highlighting everything that happened for the week and we want to include you guys.

A Quick #BSBVegas FAQ (VIP, Show, & Afterparty)

The Backstreet Fever is taking over Vegas and we couldn’t be more thrilled to finally see them take over The Axis theater stage. Last night was a night of firsts – first show, first VIP and first official BSB afterparty. Naturally, everyone has a lot of questions!

While we intend on putting together a fully detailed review / suggestion / photo blog after we both return this weekend, here are a few answers to what seem to be the most asked questions. Please note that all of this has been confirmed by the appropriate people and/or people that were there last night.

1.Are cameras allowed? 

Yes. Contrary to what Planet Hollywood and the box office will tell you when you call / email / tweet, POINT AND SHOOT CAMERAS ARE ALLOWED. Cameras with a detachable lens will be taken and be available for pick up at the end of the show.

2. Who Gets Into Pit (General Admission) First?

As of last night, everyone was lined up in the following order – VIP (1st), Early Entry (2nd), Regular GA (3rd). However, people with regular GA still got a good spot in the pit as it is a small space. Please note – this is ALL standing. You do NOT have a designated spot in GA.

3. Are Drinks Allowed Into The Pit?

Of course. While you may not want to give up your spot to get a drink or run to the restroom, drinks are definitely allowed.

4. What’s Included In VIP?

A meet and greet with the Backstreet Boys and a VIP exclusive lounge with a bar, photobooth, and more to ensure a good time with friends! Please note that last night (3/1) was the first night and that the meet and greet experience is only going to get better. Hugs from each BSB though – what could be better??

Please note that VIP experiences are all different and the time spent with the Boys varies. It’s best to go in with an open mind.

5. How Many People Were In VIP?

Around 150 – it was sold out.

6. Can You Leave VIP After You’re Done?

It’s not likely that you’ll want to. By the time the VIP process is done, it’s time for doors to open. Every night is different though.

UPDATE: We did see one or two people leave to go to dinner and get their ticket rescanned to come back in. If you have an actual seat, there’s no benefit to being let in early. Make sure you get your ticket scanned before you leave though.

7. Can You Buy VIP At The Door?

If VIP is sold out, no.

8. How Long Is The Show?

12 minute long intro video, 96 minute show. Usually starts around 9:10 pm.

9. The Boys Go Into The Audience For AIHTG. Which Sections?

Nick: 200 – 201
Brian: 202
Kevin: 203 – 204
Aj: 205 – 206
Howie: 207 – 208

10. Do You Have To Leave The Show Early To Get A Good GA Spot For The Afterparty?

No. Leaving early isn’t really beneficial. Chateau is a 5 minute walk from Planet Hollywood and the Boys will take longer to get there than you will.

11. Is The Chateau Dress Code Enforced? 

Not really, but we wouldn’t recommend showing up in something as casual as flip flops.

We will be updating this post as there are more questions! We will be live tweeting / snapchatting from Vegas all weekend – @whothebckstreet. Can’t wait to see you guys there!



7 Things You Need To Know About Backstreet Boys VIP Experiences

Ladies and Gentlemen…

Boys and Girls…

We are now boarding the Backstreet Boys Larger Than Life Vegas Experience. Described by Brian Littrell as a “Backstreet Boys show on steroids” and by Howie Dorough as “a show unlike you’ve ever seen before”, we’re on the runway for this new adventure and we’re days away from taking off.

Before we enjoy the show, however, there’s the little matter of VIP meet and greet. What do you need to know? What should you expect? How can you have the best time ever? We’ve got you covered!

1. You’ll Get An Email With Details 24-48 Hours Prior To Your Event.


Many of you have asked if there’s been a timeline posted for when everything is going down and whatnot. The answer is no. Everyday is different and subject to change based on what’s going on. The Boys and Wonderful Union want you to have the best experience possible (I promise) and for that reason, they send out times to meet and where 24-48 hours prior to your event to be sure.

Make sure you add to your address book to make sure your itinerary doesn’t go to spam!  Worried about printing it out? Don’t. All you have to have is your ID… and your cute self, duh.

2. Like The Concert, This Is An All New Meet And Greet Experience. 


Wonderful Union has really been trying to listen to fan suggestions and tailoring the latest VIP meet and greet experience to meet and greet all of our VIP expectations.

So forget everything you knew.

For now, clean your VIP slate and get excited. There’s a VIP Preshow lounge! Access to drinks and snacks! Merch being shipped so you don’t have to guard it all night! Limited number of people! ALL FIVE BACKSTREET BOYS! Who knows what else might happen?

Will you still have to show up and wait for a bit before the meet and greet actually starts? Probably. It’s a great time to catch up with friends and share good times with people you’ve never met. We promise you — it’s worth the wait.

3. Go With The Flow.


Like we said, forget everything you know. Enjoy it as it comes and please, don’t sabotage your own experience.

You paid for this experience. You earned this experience. Your friends have done the same. If you go in with a positive outlook, things will inevitably be better. Be the type of person everyone wants to go with and don’t let last minute changes stress you out. At the end of the day, YOU’RE GOING TO MEET THE BACKSTREET BOYS! Yay!

Again, everything you may go through will end up TOTALLY worth it. Also, be mindful that this is new for everyone and sometimes kinks need to be worked out.

4. …But Have A Plan.


Like I said, you paid for this, you have waited so long for this (I don’t care how many times you’ve done it – you’re definitely counting down) and you don’t want to leave with regrets. So don’t!

You only get so much time with Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ, and Nick so you definitely want to make the most out of it. If there’s something you REALLY want to say, get it in your head more than 2 minutes before you meet them. If you’re only there for a hug (er, handshake) and a photo, that’s cool too. Just have it in your head and make a mental plan! It’s a lot less stressful.

Also, don’t get crazy. Mental planning cuts out the “wtf am I saying” moments and the excessive drooling that might happen. 🙂

5. Take Care Of Yourself.


So you’ve gotten your email, you’ve gotten your mental plan, you’re totally breezy and going with the flow….

…but you totally forgot to eat and be a human.

We know nerves and emotions run high on show days and you may not FEEL like eating (my biggest fault), but do you feel like passing out in front of the Backstreet Boys? Trust us, the medics will NOT be as hot.

6. Ask Your Friends.


If you’re not going the first week, definitely ask your friends that went what all went down and what to expect (but again, every night is different, see #3).

Kristie and I will both be in attendance on opening week and we will definitely be updating WHOTB ASAP on all the happenings. There’s also this post with pro tips from Backstreet Boys VIP addicts to help you prepare yourself.



Your countdown is at zero, you’re in an amazing city with your favorite band and the excitement is in the air! Stop worrying and have the best time EVER. You deserve it.

If you haven’t purchased your BSB VIP yet, buy them here. They ARE selling out and they’re not restocking. If they are sold out, you will NOT be able to pay at the door.

If you have a question or problem with VIP, please contact Wonderful Union here.

13 Ways That Backstreet Boys VIP Events Are Like An Episode Of ‘The Bachelor’

In case you haven’t heard, the Backstreet Boys are appearing on an episode of The Bachelor this week. The more we thought about it, the more we realized there might actually be quite a few similarities between The Bachelor and BSB VIP Meet and Greet.

I mean, we ARE a bunch of girls vying for the 2 minute affection / attention of one to five men.

And sometimes we get a little crazy…

1. There’s THE Boys.


They may no longer be bachelors, but much like the bachelor on screen, they never disappoint in their excitement to meet 30(0000) women!


And they always have enough arms for all of us!

2. We all act totally chill before meet and greets. Almost TOO chill.


3. But really, we’re freaking out! 


4. Even though we know they’re all married now, some of us can’t let it go.


Time to let it go, ladies. And gentlemen.

5. Sometimes standing out among lots of VIPers means insane outfits.


Love it or hate it, at least you’ll be remembered!

6. The time for the group date, er, VIP comes and we’re all best friends! 




7. Getting those VIP lanyards are like getting a rose – you’ve finally made it!



Bless anyone who has to put up with us getting those lanyards, you guys.

8. Something goes the least bit not to your plan? Meltdowns are happening and you are on a MISSION to find Chris Harrison… we mean, Jenn or Eddie.


Someone should reward them for how much they put up with because we can be SO dramatic.


8. Then…It’s Time. KEVIN. HOWIE. AJ. BRIAN. NICK. 


9. You even say things to quickly try to make connections with one of them…tumblr_ni58co1saq1r8tlnto2_500

10. …And you get unreasonably irritated when your moment is interrupted.


11. Then, in the blink of your eye, it’s over. 



12. But you’ll have the memories!!


13. But that post-VIP depression? Well…


Tune into The Bachelor tonight (1/16) on ABC at 8pm EST / 7pm CST for a very special BSB appearance!


Note: We know some gifs / photos are from The Bachelorette and other franchises. You get the concept!

36 Backstreet Boys VIP Addicts Tell All

Once upon a time, meeting the Backstreet Boys was not an easy thing to do.

Then VIP meet and greet packages were created and we’ve been addicted (and a little broke) ever since!

Last week, we asked those of you who have done 5 or more official VIP meet and greets (concerts, cruise and afterparties) to share with us what makes you addicted, your favorite VIP memories and the advice you have for others who may be on the fence about it or may be going for the first time. The response was overwhelming! Thanks to everyone who spent the time to write in.

Enjoy this episode of “True Life: I’m a BSB VIP Addict” 😉

Name: Jenn

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 6

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: When I was wearing my minions bsb shirt and Kevin pointed it out. Had a minor fan moment at that but it really sticks out as my favorite!

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Just to stay calm, also try not to ask the same questions that have been asked a million times. Try to not spend the whole time taking pictures, you’re going to be too distracted on the camera and not fully enjoying the experience.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: I’d love if there was more candid pics from during the soundtrack. That way you don’t feel like it’s as needed to take so many pics of your own.

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: Each time is a whole new experience. You never have the same exact thing twice.


How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 7

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: My favorite VIP memory was IAWLT Tour Jones Beach, NY on June 22, 2014. I did the VIP M&G before the show and then did it again before the AP started. The AP M&G was the best because when it was my turn with the Boys, I whispered to A.J. “If you have time later, would you please sign my arm?” He responded “Definitely, I promise”. Later during the AP, I was standing in the back of the crowd (which was wildly dancing), when all of a sudden, A.J. (who skipped many APs and we all know why) jumped from the stage into the middle of the crowd (OMG so dangerous). Of course the crowd swarmed him. He started spinning around and searching the crowd. After a minute of searching he spotted me in the back and locked eyes with me. Thats when I pushed my way through the sea of crazed females and reached him. As all the girls starred, he said “Hey I’m keeping my promise” and he pulled out a sharpie marker, took my arm and signed it next to my “KTBSPA” tattoo. He then gave me a hug and I thanked him. I stayed the rest of the party and caught up with a few friends. When the party was over, my friends and I went to see if we could catch the buses but it was too late. Drove home that night and showered but didn’t let my one arm touch any soap or water. I made sure to sleep with my arm protected with plastic wrap. The next morning I went straight to my tattoo artist. He tattooed right over the sharpie signature. It looks exactly how A.J. signed it; every stroke. My tattoo was also featured on JoJo’s Behind The Scenes of A.J.’s Live Together Music Video Shoot. I am the bright red head in the music video behind A.J.. Thanks for letting me share my story.

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: VIP is the only way to go. You get more time with the boys, closer to the boys during the concert and they seem to really remember you more. Sound checks are fun and intimate. The photo shoots are more personal. Not doing VIP is like going through World War 3. Battling all the girls just to get closer to the boys is like a blood bath.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: Backstage time with the boys in their green room. VIP exclusive merchandise. Use of props during the VIP photo shoots. Autograped VIP Laminates.

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: The fact that I know I can make myself more known to the boys. Feels like they pay more attention to VIPs.

Name: Kristen

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: Too many to count

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: My favorite memory is when Nick and Kevin rubbed my pregnant belly 🙂

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Try not to rush and just enjoy the experience. Don’t fret about the photo- just enjoy meeting each backstreet boy- be present in the moment.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: Sound check
Mix and mingle event where they come around and chat
One VIP should be chosen to go on stage at the show

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: Time with the boys, the entire experience

Name: Ashley Darpino

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 6

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: It’s hard to pick just one favorite, there have been so many memorable moments. Funny enough one of my favorites I didn’t even see. It was during BSB Takes NYC during sound check. The boys I believe started Larger Then Life and they came into the audience. I saw AJ run past and I turned to watch where he was going not realizing someone was behind him. Suddenly I’m being shaken and my girls are going ashhhhh ashhhhh. I whip around and go what?!?! And there’s Brian staring in my face. He just serenaded the back of my head! I will never ever live that down!!

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: 1. Don’t have food on you, Nick will sniff it out. That goes for coconut scented body spray too lol

2. Kevin and Howie may need you to get their attention, they tend to not pay attention..

3. Speaking of Kevin, he like to hug, as they all do but he’ll just grab you, Brian tends to do that too.

4. Don’t look in Kevin’s eyes, you have been warned

5. Nick and Howie like their asses grabbed

6. Howie may say something to you in Spanish, and may tickle you.

7. Nick loves attention

8. If there’s a Q&A, ask good questions and not the same “boxers or briefs”

9. You may or may not end up on IG

10. Have fun!!!!

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: I’d love for the backstage tour to come back and I really loved the champagne toast from nick and knight.

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: The boys!!! Every time you meet them you fall more more and more in love with them. And it’s a lot of fun!

Name: Aimee Bishop

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 3

Name: Sonya

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 7

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: I can’t pin point one in particular. But if I had to pick one it would be the one for the first let of In A World Like This. Mainly because I won and didn’t know until the last minute. The only reason why I signed up was because a friend and I had seats together at the Detroit show two days before and she said if she won she’d take me to Ohio. So to increase our chances I entered too. So, I had to hurry up and find tickets to the show. The friend ended up not being about to go so I had to ask someone else. We left Michigan around 7 and got to Ohio around 11ish.

We hung out in the parking lot and got pictures with Howie and Nick and another friend and her husband ended up coming as well and we all went to the after party.

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Be clam. Their just people like you and I so there’s no reason to be nervous.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: A little longer time. I know that’s hard but it would be nice.

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: Seeing the boys. The money makes it hard but it’s always fun to make new friends and chat with old ones.

Name: Jaime

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 10

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: Hard to choose just one but my fave picture is where I’m standing by aj and he has his arm out saying she’s mine boys lol!

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Take a deep breath, everything is going to fine! They are just 5 regular guys who happen to be pop stars! Try to remain calm, don’t be afraid to talk to them!

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: More fan interactions, perhaps more than just a meet and greet like bowling with BSB!

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: I’m not sure I just really love these guys!

Name: Stephanie Mayse

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 10

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: Probably the 20 anniversary fan event. Brian greeted with a smile and hug and when I got to Kevin and I told him I was from his home town he went crazy! Grabbed me and said sit on my knee, he also grabbed my friend and wouldn’t let her go either . After the greet me and her looked at one another and was what just happened . It’s a memory we can share for a life time

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Just breathe. If there’s something you wanna tell the boys do it!. And if u have a favorite boy make sure u go to them first.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: That it isn’t so rushed that we can take a minute to breathe and talk to the guys for A few minutes

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: The love the boys have for their fans . I always leave feeing like they care reguardless of how rushed it was.

Name: Stefie

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 17 vip + 2 after parties + 3 cruises

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: I have so many!! So many!! But I think that my vip in Cleveland for IAWLT is to this date probably the best … It was not to crowd and the boys were in a great mood ! I also have a great memorie there because of Q who always make sure to make us laugh! I had a platinu with my 2 friends which one of them was her first vip we decide to share our pictures… 1 hugs . 1 funny and 1 normal! AJ told me how he think it was so original * which it was really not lol* when we got to take the funny one Justin trip on the chair and end up on the floor … I don’t remember who but one of the guys said ” he took funny the heart” it was just a great day and i love vip not just for the boys but for the whole crew and the fact I can share it with my friends !

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Just breathe , the guys are so nice with us and always make sure we are comfortable 🙂 be prepared if you go in a group pictures talk before of who go with who.. If the guys open their arms … Even if Mike or any bodyguard said no hugs no kissing… If the guys invite you go for it !!!! Just…. Don’t JUMP on them :)… Respect them and please remember they are 5 guys in this group 😉

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: More time with the guys…. We pay alot of money it would be nice to not be pushed because they oversale it and have to be quick…. If I pay 539$ please make it worth it … Give us time to say hi and chat even if it’s for only 2 minutes….. 2 minutes is better then 15 secondes

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: The vibe …. The great experience with my friends its a girls night out really and how the boys always make me feel appreciate ! They care about our experience. ! And the bodyguard too they are the best crew!!!

Name: Manon

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 18 with bsb 6 with nick

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: My favourite VIP will always be my first one. I was amazed to see them live in front of me and my brain was wondering where was the subtitles (I’m from a French speaking place so we usually always see them on TV with subtitles and the bottom of the screen!)

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Enjoy every second of the M&G! It may seems pricey but it definitely worth every penny. We are fortunate to be able to meet our idols just enjoy and have fun.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: Smaller crowds (more intimate experience). More interaction between the fans and the boys. I get that they are busy but the pictures are often rushed and there not really any possibility to talk with the boys. So if the VIP in smaller it will gave more time to interact with the boys.

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: Those VIP are my drugs! I don’t really drink I don’t smoke, my money goes to my numerous travels to see concert and VIP. I can’t put in words the feeling of taking picture with the person that once where all over my bedroom walls. I may pay a lot of money for those VIP but to me it’s a way to prove myself that when you want something hard enough and that you are willing to put the efforts required to reach your dreams …. well then dreams can come true.

Name: Kimberley Kirkpatrick

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 10 official ones i believe

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: The very first one… i walked into the venue … everyone run straight towards the stage while i went completely pale white and AJ shouted to me … hi welcome to the meet n greet come closer and i was mortified…..

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Remain calm and breathe breathe breathe

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: More one on one time and no backstreet time as they name it ! No rush … more family involved as we fans have grown with them

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: Hello Duh! Its the Backstreet boys!! Addicteddddddd

Name: Priscilla Consolo

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 5

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: During the first US Leg of the In A World Like This Tour, in August 2013, I was chosen to ask the boys a question during the Q&A session. I asked the boys how they decide who is going to sing different parts of songs when they’re recording.

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Be patient. Often, VIP will last a few hours. Prepare to be tired but it will be an amazing experience. Also, think about what you’re going to say to each boy ahead of time and where you want to stand in the photo.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: I hope that we get to spend more time with the boys and not be so rushed. Living in New York City, there’s always a big VIP group and I feel the bigger groups get rushed too quickly. Also I would love for the boys to have events where we can interact with them, like the BSB BBQ back in 2012 at Mixtape or Nick’s solo events (lunch, bowling, laser tag).

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: The boys are so kind and generous to their fans. They’re always happy and smiling to meet and talk to us. And they give the best hugs. I always leave my VIP experience feeling like I’m on cloud nine.

Name: Alexis Kraft

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 20+

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: I have so many that I don’t even know where to begin. Each VIP is special in its own way. Every VIP is different. You never know what to expect. From having a convo with Brian, to standing there waiting for the boys to notice it’s your turn because they’re laughing about something, to Nick holding you for a pic. I have countless memories from every VIP that I’ll always cherish. I’ve even had an embarrassing one where I almost fell right in front of them but AJ caught me and kept me from falling. But I have to say, the BEST part, is the look of recognition on their faces when they see me. That NEVER gets old. BSB went from just pics on my walls and only seeing them on tv to them “knowing” me. Never in my teenage wildest dreams did I ever think that would be possible.

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Just relax and breathe. The guys are so nice and sooooo easy to talk to. Just soak it all in and enjoy it.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: I would like more interaction with the boys and not oversold VIPs. I would like them to be more intimate. The best event was the BSB BBQ. And for us to have just a few mins to hug and talk with each boy during our pics. That’s why I like Nick’s solo VIPs because we can actually talk to him.

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: Being able to be close and hug the boys and have that brief momeny of them focusing only on you. And like I mentioned before, the look of recognition on their faces when they see me.

Name: Nessa Collins

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 39

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: During one of our Meet and Greet photos, my mom and I asked the boys to strike their best superhero pose. The end result was absolutely hilarious.

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: If you have a specific photo theme in mind, tell the boys quickly! Nine times out of ten, they’ll do it.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: I’d like a bit more time during the M&G portion, but that’s unlikely – especially in larger areas like L.A. and N.Y.C. – I think it’d be cool to have props that the boys can dress you in, just for a super special memory.

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: I love the boys so much. Each time is unique and the boys are truly so thankful for your time and love. They always know when it’s our first stop on the tour!

Name: Melissa Duncan

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 6

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: My favorite vip had to be the bsb cruise 2013. Was with great people and the guys decided you could have who you wanted in the picture. It didn’t need to be a set # or with people you didn’t know. I was with girls from Canada all pumped to see the guys in their captain suits. We have em all a hug and me being risky gave em a kiss on the cheeks. Nick has the softness skin btw and Kevin’s hugs are compassionate. They have good hearts too, joking and having a conversation with you cuz we’ve met them many times. Our group enjoy the security so we talk ask about their day and we all have Q a hug. It is one we will never forget.

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Don’t jump on bsb or yell. Act normal cuz they are normal. If you bring a present, make sure to give it to the bsb you got the gift for and don’t spend too much on them either. Dress comfortable for the pic…3 of 5 guys are short…be adventurous in the pic…plan it out. Do a funny pose or stance.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: Longer than a hello snap a pic and that’s it with a few songs sang. We pay a lot od money for less than 10 min. Should be a sit down talk etc…

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: Updated pictures and to say hello again.

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: Nick changing lyrics in (i thinkBerlin but could have been Rotterdam to PDA and Masquerade

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Stay calm and cool. All is well

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: Less people

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: Always front row. (Its mostly GA here in Europe )

Name: Brittany

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 10+

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: I will share 2 and you can pick:

1) During NKOTBSB, my sister and I did a Platinum VIP when backstage tours were still a thing. AJ gave that one, and it was incredible because I am a lifelong AJ girl. Our group was kind of big, so as we were waitibg on everyone to get within earshot, AJ told those of us in the front that he would answer any questions we wanted to ask. So my sister blurted out, “What do we have to do for an old fashioned floor hump?” He looked at the floor, back at her, back at the floor, and before anyone could whip out a cell phone, he did it. My sister leaned over and said, “That was for you.” And my 12 year old heart exploded.

2) In Vegas during In A World Like This, that was my one Platinum of the tour so we were front row for soundcheck. Kathy Griffin crashed the party and it was one of my favorite soundchecks ever. She even planted a kiss on Nick’s mouth (total surprise to him) which I’ve got an incredibly well-timed photo of. And in that Meet and Greet, Brian sang part of Try to me, which is captured in the photo. I’m not even mad.

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Enjoy everything about the moment. Don’t get caught up in what is going wrong, what you might want to say, who is standing where… Things happen fast. If you are in your head, you’ll miss the experience and won’t have the stories to tell. They are fabulous people AS LONG AS YOU ACT RIGHT. Be kind to the Boys. To the security guards. To the staff at the venue. To other fans. It makes the experience better for everyone involved.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: I LOVED the backstage tours. If those came back, Id join the Platinum club multiple times a tour (whereas that onstage thing was a one and done experience). Anything that allows for more time in a relaxed atmosphere adds value. The BSBBBQ had some nice components. Everything has become a selfie fest. My preference would be something with chill time with them and then designated photo time. And those two things don’t overlap.

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: I love the Boys and since my first M&G on This is Us, they have incredible to my mom, my sister, and me every time we make a trip and spend the money. As long as they keep appreciating their fans and showing us love, we will keep showing up.
The level of VIP and the number we but let tour is determined by what is offered. (See Platinum comments above.) Soundchecks on 2nd US leg of In a World Like This were not good (lazy, oversold, unorganized and hours behind schedule) and a bit of a turn off. If those had been my first, I probably wouldn’t have come back.

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: Bsb’s music has helped me thorough life’s ups and downs and I was able to tell Nick (who’s my fav) that their music helped me through my miscarriage. He was very empathetic and smiled sweetly then leaned in and gave me the biggest hug!

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Practice what you want to say a million times! You only get a couple min if you’re lucky and once it’s your turn it’s hard to not be speechless.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: Longer fan interaction 🙂 I also really liked it when they did ten Platinum VIP where one of tr boys gave a backstage tour and a one-on-one photo in addition to the group photo (they should do this again!)

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: It’s just unbelievably amazing to have a brief interaction with the people who make the music who keeps me going. I never dreamed I would have the opportunity to meet them when I was a young teen! It’s just a dream come true every time. I’m also amazed at how sweet and down to earth the guys are.

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: It was a close race with NYE 2012 but the VIP for the Grand Prarie stop of the IAWLT tour was the best. My friends and I had Platinum & were in front row. I had brought Nick a Bucs tank top & red hat with troll hair. My best friend got his attention & we got him to wear the hat for most of the VIP. 🙂 He also wore the Bucs shirt for the After Party. This VIP also was one of my fave encounters with our beloved Q. He saw the shirt I was carrying & knew immediately who I was going to stand next to, LOL. The Boys were all awesome & Nick calling you sweetheart is never a bad thing. 😉 Best night ever!!!

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Be yourself & you’ll have an amazing experience. The meet & greet goes by fast so be prepared. The Boys give great hugs so get one if you can. 😉

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: Just hope they keep things fresh by changing it up. Maybe limit Platinum to a smaller amount to give fans more 1 on 1 time.

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: It’s always great to spend time, however brief, with our Boys. It’s even better when you can share the experience with your best friends.

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: AJ’s backstage tour & dancing on stage with the Boys during a show!

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Be prepared to wait. #BackstreetTime Also, your time with them it goes pretty quickly.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: Fans choosing sound check songs.

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: It’s always a different experience. Also, NJ shows are usually GA, so VIP gets first dibs on spots.

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: I have so many. But one that sticks out in my mind is the NKOTBSB tour VIP that happened the first night in London (April 28th 2012), when AJ asked me what it was about 10,000 promises that made me cry, because he noticed (I’d been to two shows previously). I told him that it wasn’t Promises, but Show Me The Meaning that made me cry (I cried so much that I was still crying when Promises started)… then Q gently pulled me away cause I was taking too long. I still can’t believe that AJ noticed my crying, and remembered it a week later. I don’t know whether to be happy or embarrassed about that, to be honest!

Another favorite memory is also from the NKOTBSB tour, this one on April 20th 2012 in Belfast. Brian was about to take us backstage when I spontaneously thanked him for 19 years of BSB. I said a bunch of other stuff, and Brian was so touched (or he could have been horrified, it’s hard to tell) that he asked me to repeat everything (!!) for Eddie to record. Needless to say I stumbled over my words the second time around, but I was lucky that Eddie didn’t record it, he just took pictures. To have Brian staring at me for about 10 minutes straight… I still have no words for that.

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Stay calm. I mean it. Stay calm. Meeting BSB is beyond exciting, and your body will pretty much implode on itself when faced with BSB (at least mine usually does). You can freak out afterwards. And you will. And that’s okay.

Rehearse what you’re going to say. You want to ask them questions and you want to talk to them. Rehearse it beforehand. VIP meet and greets go fast: about 10 seconds on a normal basis, or a little longer if you’re lucky. That’s not a lot of time, so if you’re able to speak (and I can promise you that it wasn’t always the case for me), you have to make it fast and coherent.

Ask for permission. You’re going to want to hug them, and sometimes, they spontaneously hug you, but if you see that it’s not a thing during your VIP, ask for permission before you go in for a hug. I know you’re a huge fan, but essentially, the Boys are hugging complete strangers, so asking for permission is the most polite thing to do. And in my experience, it’s always resulted in hugs. Don’t ask me who gives the best hugs, I have no idea…… it’s a three-way tie between Brian, AJ, and Kevin.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: Honestly, I’d love for them to bring the backstage tour back. I found it to be an intimate experience with one of the Boys, and I loved it. That’s not to say that I didn’t enjoy it when I went onstage with them as a Platinum VIP during the IAWLT tour, but I loved the backstage tour.

But if we’re talking something completely new, I’d like for the Q&A to be rehearsed and for BSB to ask us questions. We’re always the ones asking them things. Then again, the last time that happened, I embarrassed the heck out of myself…

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: The Backstreet Boys. I have no other answer for you. Meeting them is a high that’s unequalled by anything else. Sure, it’s preceeded by high amounts of anxiety (“What do I do?” “What do I say??” “What do I wear?!”), but they always make it worth it, and in the small amount of time you have, they make you feel at ease. It’s a Backstreet thing.

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: My favorite VIP memory is Platinum VIP for NKOTBSB Tour at Fenway Park. First, I’m a Red Sox fan, so it was so special to see the Boys in Red Sox outfits. I prepared customized BSB M&M’s for them as gifts, and Nick opened the bag right away and start eating. My favorite part is the backstage tour with Howie. We visited backstage of Fenway Park and listened to Howie sharing some inside stories. I got to ask a Howie question about his solo album. It was a huge dream come true moment to me.

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Practice makes perfect. Try to stay calm, and be prepared for what you want to say to the Boys.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: I like the backstage tour during This Is Us & NKOTBSB tour, because we got to spend some quality time with BSB. I think it would be good to bring it back.

No barricade. The photos and interaction are so much better without the barricade. And I hope the photoshoot is not so rush.

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: VIP Meet & Greets are addictive! First and foremost, the Boys are really nice, I love them more and more each time I got to talk to them or even have a hug. I can say “thank you” in person, and tell them how much they mean to me. When they’re in the city I live, I would try to find special local gifts, and hope to make them feel special about the city. Every meet & greet is one special dream-come-true moment that I’ll cherish for a lifetime.

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 17 as a group (including cruises)

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: One of my favorite memories is getting to go onstage with the guys for the New Years 2013 shows. It was cool seeing the audience from their perspective, dancing and even getting to sing with them during If I Knew Then. This was before everyone had to sit for IAWLT and I wish it could be something they bring back in the future!

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Relax. Don’t let your nerves get the best of you and take it all in. They’re human too and really easy to talk to. Have fun with it and you’ll get the best experience.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: I would love to see a group hangout like the BSBBQ at Mixtape, or something interactive like Nick did during All American with the bowling and laser tag. It’s something refreshing and really mixes it up from the norm. Not to mention it’s a lot of fun!

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: For me it’s like seeing old friends. Every encounter with the guys is different and exciting. I walk away with new memories; and it makes me appreciate them even more.

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 16 (21 if you count solo events and 26 if you count cruises)

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: In Vegas, 2013 IAWLT, I asked someone to jump on my back piggy-back style. Howie volunteered AJ and AJ agreed. AJ hopped on my back. The look on Brian and Kevin’s face could only be described as sheer terror and panic. It’s my facebook profile pic 🙂

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Calm down. They’re human. Breathe. Take in every moment because it passes by so quickly. Also, when the Q&A portion of the VIP starts, just throw you arm up in the air, even if you don’t have a question. Justin will give you the mic and you can talk to the boys!

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: I hope they don’t change it. I like the Q&A, soundcheck, photo op. I hope they don’t raise prices and reduce perks. Please please please stay away from the New Kids model where they force you do to a VIP photo op with 9 other people. I feel like a dollar sign to NKOTB. I’m really happy with what BSB is doing now. Oh, and I could do without the signed poster. I hate having to babysit it during the concert. I usually end up just giving it away to some fan nearby who didn’t buy a VIP. I enjoyed the previous perk (2008-2010ish) where we could take 1 item to get signed. That was cool.

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: The boys and their approachable, kind, genuine, down-to-earth selves. They make me feel like for those 30-sec photo ops literally nothing else in the world matters to them but me.

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 6

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: The boys each gave me a kiss as they hugged and greeted me because I had mistletoe as a prop for our group pic.

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Expect to have only 15 seconds to communicate with all the boys before your pic. Don’t be crazy, you ruin it for the rest of us and then stuff gets taken away.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: -Backstage tour by a bsb member
-Solo pic with the bsb member giving it
-Solo pic with the boys
-Onstage during a song
-autographed pic of them
-1 min when meeting the boys

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: -The boys. They appreciate every fan who comes through and they make you feel special. You can’t pass that up (one on one time with them). It’s what you dream of as a fan.

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: June 28th 2015, Monterrey, Mexico.
I was waiting in line for my vip photo, the boys were having a good time, Mike dancing, so when it was my turn Howie approched to me, then AJ and i didnt know what to do, so I open my arms to hold them and then Howie exclaim “group hug!” Nick turns around and join us for the group hug, I feel like I was about to faint, I was so happy! I couldnt stop smiling. Ive never thought I would experience something like this, something unexpected. After that beautiful moment somebody screams “photo”, I was kissing and hugging Howie and AJ separetly and I said that I wanted to say hi to everyone and they said I can do it later, well then I didnt think about how I want my picture, so I just came out with all of them hugging me, I called/yell to Brian to be next to me, Nick was changing positions with Aj, I stopped him XD.
I felt everyone holding me, when you look at the camera all that you see is black, but then I saw Justin saying to me that “its ok”, Nick was really holding me tight, when he let me go he asked me “do you like that, dont you?” and I was like what?? I was blushing and answered “of course!” hahaha I kissed him and hugged him, then I went to kevin and told him that I love him and that I want to thank him for coming to Mexico. When I went to Brian he asked me “how are you” but in spanish and I told him “great, I love you” and he responses “I love you too” :’) he hold me and I kissed him.
When I left the room I was in shock! I started to cry when I saw my friend Ery, she was worry, she hugged me, I never cry after meet them, this was the first time.
This is my picture

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Hold your breath, smile, If you want something special for you photo, asked them quitely, dont scream to them, they will listen.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: More time with them to talk, to have a real meet and greet!

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: To thank them for all that they mean to me, to see them again while I can, kiss and hug them.

How Many BSB VIP Meet and Greets Have You Attended?: 6

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: From my first M&G I have a moment that I love to tell everyone lol. I was between Nick and Brian and when I was going to hug Brian I stepped on Nick’s foot. I was already so nervous and I got desperate! I was like “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry” and he was the cutest trying to calm me down, he said “That’s ok, that’s ok, honey” while caring my face, playing with my hair and hugging me. So Brian began to do the same. Then, they both gave me a big hug, like a sandwich hug. I could not move any part of my body and I really didn’t want to. I love this story so much! They made my first M&G so funny and lovely. Plus I had my own Frick and Frack moment! 😉

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Don’t be afraid, just remember you are going to be face to face to those guys you have known all your life, but they are even more amazing than you thought. Look them in the eyes and say thank you, say what you want, if you are not able to say anything, don’t mind…they know! Everything is going to be okay and you are going to live one of the most beautiful moments of your life. No matter what the others have told you about that moment, because it’s unique to each one of us. So forget what I just said and remember to breath and be nice to them lol! 😉

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: I would like to have more time them. It would be nice if we had that backstage pass, as we had before, but with all the boys and not too crowded lol. I really would enjoy that! Something for the die hard fans!!

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: I love meeting them, I feel such an amazing energy. It is so good giving them a hug and saying thank you…having real memories with them. And everytime is like the first one! It is addicting indeed! I guess we have them in our lives for such a long time that we need to be with them in person for a few moments, they are like family for us. Even though we need this time with them to realize they are truly real!

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: Pulling off a jumping picture with the Boys.

I had wanted to give them a gift that got mixed up in the mail, so didn’t have it, and was brainstorming with friends in line what else to do, not just a stand and smile. I was paranoid because I had a dress on… The actual photo looks like Nick missed the memo, he’s just squatting the whole time! And Howie semi gave an effort, got up on his toes. But AJ got some air, and Kevin and Brian definitely jumped! Justin was a saint and took a burst, so I got 4 photos, different heights. Afterwards, Kevin said that was the first time they had done that!

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: I have edited this a million times and posted on event pages for fans who are new and since WU never put up FAQ :

TL;DR most important thing: BE NICE!!!!! Everyone paid to be here and experience the Boys. Just because you paid more doesn’t mean you love them more; you had the means! There’s no need to be catty, judgy, pushy, selfish (hogging time/excess questions/answers we know like fave song!!) etc…. DO UNTO OTHERS as you would have them do unto you!……for afterparties, if you’ve already had a photo, let others have a chance!…HAVE FUN. ….remember the Boys are human. They’re super down to earth, humble, thankful, and chill. ;o)

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: Less people, to make the time with them more intimate.

Maybe even enough time, then to allow everyone to ask a question. More of a Q&A vs a crowd waiting to get their picture taken.

It would be great, if still somewhat soundcheck related, they take requests more often, and don’t do the songs we’ll also be seeing in the show. But old stuff we’d otherwise never hear again from an old tour… For example, the random NYE event they did in PA a few years ago (w/ Kevin), they had to Google lyrics on their phones and were foggy on old choreo, but that was GOLD to watch!!

For the actual meeting (both sound check and afterparty, and cruise, so far), it feels very rushed. It’s so nice of them that they will take the time to do a silly pose / put on some sort of easy costume if you ask them, but it still feels like you’re pushing it if you try that, it’s still a rush to not waste everyone’s time…. This makes sense when there are 100+ people and limited time before the show. If there are less people, maybe actually get a few minutes instead of getting rushed out in 30 seconds of “illegal” hugs and Justin making you smile. Especially for first timers, it may give them some time to calm down, vs 30 seconds of adrenaline that they’ll regret forgetting.

The attempt on the last cruise of them coming around to us for chill chats was a GREAT idea — it failed in execution, as waiting for them wasn’t enforced and then they split before most of us saw them — but that could also be an option in the Vegas lounge. Wait, hang out with drinks, get tagged on a wriste band once you’ve chatted with them, then back off when you’ve had your turn so others can enjoy their glowing presence =)

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: The Q&A always makes me laugh. Always. And if they squeeze in an old song, them trying to remember it and making fun of each other is amazing. It always brightens my day.

Being able to give them a hug and thank them for the 100th time for being them and continuing to do what they do is icing on the cake.

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: I have so many beautiful memories! On the first one I couldn’t even say a word, a few years later Brian held me in his arms. On the last one Kevin said that my dress really fits (it was on the cruise). Overall it goes so fast that it’s really hard to remember every moment from every occasion. But I love all of them and they are always adorable!

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: Let it go and don’t overstress it. Most of the cases I planned in advance what I would like to say or do, but it goes really fast and nothing happens as planned. Just enjoy it!

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: The same love from the boys. It would be really nice to have a bit longer meet and greets, only with a minute or two.

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: It’s like drug addiction, if you experienced it once, you can’t stop it! You want to have it again and again…

What Is Your Favorite VIP Memory?: This is a hard one to answer, but if I had to pick two memories that really stand out the most would be the very first VIP I attended which was during the Never Gone tour. Back then you had to win your way in through the fc. My friend and I were bummed that we didn’t win, but decided to go down to the venue early to see if we could catch the boys arriving. Unfortunately we missed them by a few minutes, but we decided to wait around a bit. After awhile AJ and Nick came back out for a smoke break and there wasn’t a lot of fans around. Nick asked us if we were doing sound check and when we said no, he told us he got us. Sure enough awhile later someone came out to escort us into the building and we got to watch our very first VIP soundcheck, it was beyond special and amazing.

Second favorite VIP would be The Unbreakable tour. First time being able to actually buy VIP m&gs. My friends and I drove to Ohio all the way from NY and we arrived a bit late to sc which had already started. As we were walking to some empty seats a couple of the Boys took it upon themselves to start calling us out, saying NY is in the house etc. it’s always a good time when the boys you adore recognize you and show you love like that.

What Advice Would You Give VIP Goers?: My advice I would give is STAY CALM. Don’t freak out, don’t scream and again stay calm lol. I’d also tell them to remember that the m&g portion of VIP goes by quickly so try and know what you want to say to the guys in advance.

What Do You Hope To See During VIP Events In The Future?: Personally I would love for them to give us a bit longer with the guys during the m&g portion. Cut out the q&a portion and sell less vips if it means we could have a bit more time with the boys. Also candid photos. It would be nice if Justin could click some as you’re greeting the guys.

What Keeps You Going To VIP Meet and Greets?: What keeps me coming back, that’s a question I ask myself every time a new tour is announced. Quite simply, my love. For those 5 guys who captured my heart almost 20 years ago
