In case you haven’t heard… Backstreet’s back, alright.
The Backstreet Boys announced their new Las Vegas residency, Larger Than Life, kicks off March 1 and will feature a compilation of the guys’ greatest hits throughout their career. Since news broke, boy bands became a thing again. Just kidding, but it hasn’t stopped them from making appearances at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas last weekend and on the Late Late Show with James Corden.
“I care about this maybe more than anything else on the planet. I’m talking proper boy bands,” Corden told the audience. “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”
He added: “Now look, I’m aware that boy bands haven’t gone away. But now, they just stand onstage wearing skinny jeans and Vans sneakers. And some of them even have the audacity to pick up instruments! That is not what I want in a boy band, OK? I want matching outfits, synchronized dancing and way over-budget music videos!”
