Backstreet Boys extend Las Vegas Residency
The Backstreet Boys have extended their Las Vegas residency, \"Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life\", into 2018.
The Backstreet Boys have extended their Las Vegas residency, "Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life", into 2018. The band includes Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, AJ McLean, Brian Littrell and Howie Dorough. "We are definitely excited to say we've extended our residency," Dorough told.
"We've been off to a great run! It just feels great to continue this on and hopefully, make this into a long-term residency." Dorough joked: "If you would have asked us this 10 years ago, we would've been like, ‘Vegas? That's where people go who want to retire.'"
The show, which takes place at The AXIS in Planet Hollywood, will now include the following dates: November 8, 10, 11, 15, 17, 18; January 31, 2018; and February 2, 3, 7, 9, 10, 14, 16, 17 next year.
When it came to deciding on the band's residency extension, Richardson explained that performing in the city has been "really convenient for (their) lifestyles".
"We're doing three shows a week. We're not on a plane or on a bus every day going to a new city, to a new arena, to another hotel, to another airport. It's just a lot easier … and (it's) so fun for us, so that's a plus," Richardson told.
