Backstreet Boys' 'Larger Than Life' Las Vegas Residency is a Nostalgic Must-See!

Should you go see the Backstreet Boys in concert? The answer is yes. Definitely yes.

The guys – Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean, and Kevin Richardson – kicked off their intimate “Larger Than Life” Las Vegas residency at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Wednesday (March 1), and they did not disappoint.

Fans got to reminisce with clips from the band’s classic music videos before the guys arrived and took the stage for the rest of the night – well, except when they left the stage to perform an entire song in the audience.

In 90 minutes, the group brought it all the way back to 1993, taking fans on a nostalgic trip down memory lane complete with costume changes, backup dancers, and light shows.
