In 1999, did you ever fantasize about a world in which you could just go to one place and see stars like Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, and the Backstreet Boys perform their hits until you passed out from happiness? If so, Las Vegas in 2017 is that place. The Axis theater at Planet Hollywood, which already hosts shows for Spears and Lopez, will now welcome BSB into its ‘90s-loving arms for an 18-date “trial residency” beginning in March of next year. Because the gods are just, the show will be called Larger Than Life, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and Kevin Richardson says the Boys are “taking that theme and we’re going to run with it.” What exactly does that mean, you ask? Brian Littrell has answers: “If you’ve ever been to a Backstreet Boys show … it’s going to be that on steroids.” The spectacle may not start until the spring, but if you’re feeling down, you can start buying up tickets for them to make it right on October 1.
