The Backstreet Boys Band which was formed in 1993 are now be going to Las Vegas for a show to tell fans that the band is still on.
At The AXIS situated at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, the band will be performing its Larger Than Life residency. The performance is mostly in 18 date trail residency, and will happen from March 1, 2017 to July 1, 2017.
Backstreet Boys Band member Kevin Richardson has been quoted as saying, “It’s going to be an amazing, energetic, fun party show.”
Tickets for this much awaited show would go on sale from Oct. 1, with some pre-sales happening on Sept. 26, while residency had been rumored since April.
Britney Spears began her residency in December 2013 and this performance had a whopping $30 million price tag.
Jennifer Lopez also started her own residency at the Planet Hollywood in January, 2016 and extended her stay for another seven months with 21 shows.
The city which once boasted hi-fi events known for their events like that of Frank Sinatra and Wayne Newton — for extended stays has now bringing in singers who appealing to millennial visitors. Now the trend is musicians who were popular in the ’90s are playing only a minor part in it.
Senior vice president of marketing and entertainment at Caesars Entertainment, Jason Gastwirth, told his company’s efforts are all part of a “new era of entertainment.”
He told a leading media through an email that “Introducing the Backstreet Boys into our lineup is another highlight of the company consistently being at the forefront of entertainment and has set a high standard for Las Vegas, one that has forced others in the industry to follow It is clear that these remarkable names are attractive to millennials, but really these residencies are for anyone who is excited by pop culture and what’s relevant today.”
The Wall Street Journal in an earlier article noted that Las Vegas had been attempting to build itself into a music destination and is now equal to New York or Nashville, the Wall Street Journal noted in an article in June and that the high-profile residencies are key to that goal.
Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell said “it’s going to be that on steroids.”
