Hey remember all those music videos you used to watch in the 90s with synchronized dancing, ridiculous outfits and for some reason they were always in the rain? Did no one ever buy umbrellas in the 90s? That isn't the point. What matters is that The Backstreet Boys are back and better than ever. James Corden agrees with all of us that boy bands these days aren't quite what they used to be. He wants them to come back as they were:
I'm talking proper boy bands. Five guys together. I'm talking about the cute one, the funny one, the nice one, the other one and the maverick who refused to play by the rules, all living together in some weird mansion in Orlando." James Corden
So when BSB announces their Vegas residency and promotes it with full on choreographed dancing on the James Corden show, we tend to get a little excited.
They pull out all the stops, with fog machines and dropping the ever famous Backstreet Boy dance move from one of the greatest music videos of all time.
Corden has it right. Boy bands now do not have the same style as they used to. They don't dance, they don't coordinate outfits, and worst of all, they "have the audacity to pick up an instrument". So our boy band heroes have given us the wonderful treat of a concert that is apparently even better than any of there other shows. Straight from the boys themselves:
"If you've ever been to a Backstreet Boys show, it's going to be that on steroids." Brian Littrell
Tickets for the Larger Than Life show go on sale on October first and the show is set to start at the AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino beginning March 1, 2017. I don't know about you but I know what I want for Christmas.
Check out there amazing performance on The Late Late Show and join me in my excitement over this show!
