Backstreet Boys perform last show in Las Vegas for 2019

The Backstreet Boys performed their last show for their Las Vegas residency this past weekend. Following 81 shows, the guys were proud to have sold over 300,000 tickets. The 90’s pop superstars made more than $38 million during Larger Than Life at Planet Hollywood. Member AJ Mclean commented that they would love to go back to Vegas at some point.

Remember, pop divas Celine Dion and Elton John both ended their original shows in Vegas and later launched new ones. Perhaps, The Backstreet Boys could come back for fans to see them in Sin City once again. McLean also added that, “everybody out there’s just been so welcoming, Vegas is such a heartfelt city.”

Once Britney Spears proved that ’90s pop stars could be successful in Vegas with her Piece of Me residency, Larger than Life opened in March of 2017. During its two-year run, Larger Than Life drew the largest residency audience in Las Vegas history, selling more than 6,000 tickets for the July 1, 2017 performance.

Being involved in the local community was a big part of their residency in Vegas as well. One dollar from every ticket purchased went to The Boys and Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada. The production raised $180,000 for the organization.

Next up for the group will be a global tour in support of their number one album DNA.
