Backstreet Boys will do shows in Vegas starting this July
When it comes to boy bands, there will always be one name that people would think of, and that is the Backstreet Boys. Before there were One Direction or BTS, the American all-boy group once ruled the world, especially the top charts. The band was at its peak during the 90s so the adults of this generation would definitely recognize them, especially their songs.
The hits of the Backstreet Boys are timeless in that they are considered to be the best-selling boy band of all time, with over a hundred million records sold worldwide. However, being famous may have its amazing perks, but fame definitely does not last forever. Even the great Beatles are now over with time, but it is their songs that will never be forgotten. Unlike the Beatles though, the Backstreet Boys are coming back with a bang and with a major hit.
After taking a hiatus, AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, and Brian Richardson, are back, and they are ready to conquer the stage all over again and the fans simply cannot wait.
We may have met them back in the 90s, but they sure are welcome in 2018 as they celebrate their 25th anniversary as a group. On their official Twitter account, they posted a photo that was taken in 1993 and the caption said that if someone tells them at that time that after 25 years, they would all be together and still making music, they wouldn’t believe that person.
They also thank their fans, especially those who have stuck with them for years, even on their hiatus, and their fans from the new generation as well. They are indeed filled with shows on the road to celebrate their silver anniversary. In fact, they are doing collaborations with Florida Georgia Line. They also announced that they have officially extended their residency at AXIS in Planet Hollywood by performing a total of 21 shows in the coming months.
Some people tend to criticize them for being “too old” to still be performing and must retire, but the group joked about retiring in Vegas would be everyone’s dream.

Because of this major comeback, they have promised their loyal fans that they no longer need to back to the old hits every single time no matter how classic they may be. This is because they have been working on some new materials that their fans truly deserve. Littrell even mentioned on an interview that they have indeed been singing the same songs over the past two decades that it’s time for something new, something that would let them grow, and something that their fans would want to hear.
After dropping their new single, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”, the group hinted that they may actually drop not just one, but two albums within a year. Littrell admitted that they have already recorded more than 10 songs and most of them have the Backstreet Boys vibe to it, but with a millennial twist.
McLean even mentioned how their newest album may drop this fall and that it will consist of different genres that would suit anyone at any age. Their newest single is even borderline EDM, to appeal with the younger fans.

Elevator Fan Sing-Along
What would you do if you happen to see your favorite boy band all together in an elevator that you are about to get into? Would you scream, cry, laugh, take photos, or just freeze? Well, it looks like some of these fans have managed to keep their composure when they happen to join the Backstreet Boys in the elevator.
The best thing about it are not just the selfies and all the hugs, but the fact that they were even given the chance to sing with them using their favorite all-time hits. This happened with their recent visit at TRL studios and worked with them to surprise some MTV employees, who happened to be Backstreet Boys fans.
The elevator segment went viral after the fans definitely wished they were the ones who got to spend some time with these legends. Some of the fans who were lucky enough to enjoy the elevator ride actually played it cool at first, but there are some who couldn’t contain their happiness and just hugged them. Who could blame them though?
