It’s been a whirlwind since The Backstreet Boys premiered their resident show “Larger Than Life” at Axis at Planet Hollywood last Wednesday night: Within an hour of the curtain coming down, the five boybanders had been renewed for more shows, taking them into 2018.

They celebrated the news that ticket sales have been so incredible that Axis will now have balcony seating during Saturday shows through July 1, something that even the other residencies of Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears and Lionel Richie haven’t yet achieved.

It’s all a far cry from when they went from being the biggest boyband in the world to the moment that they discovered $300 million had been stolen from them, and they were throwing fisticuffs at one another. Kevin Richardson left the group. From sales of 14 million albums, there was suddenly no room for them on the radio.

“We saw the best and worst of each other,” they said when I interviewed them last Thursday afternoon at Axis.

With the Strip success all over again, no wonder that the champagne was flowing — and spraying — right after their debut as they hosted an epic after-party at Chateau Nightclub & Rooftop at neighboring Paris Las Vegas last late Wednesday night.

Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, A.J. McLean and Kevin arrived to the after-party shortly after midnight — our review was posted last Thursday. Screaming fans admired the stars as they walked the red carpet and posed for photographs on the club’s rooftop. They even danced their way into a cordoned-off area of the club as fans went wild.

The Backstreet Boys were presented with an engraved magnum bottle of Moet as confetti cascaded down over the roaring crowd. The group hopped on top of their VIP booth to sing and dance to hits spun by DJs Bayati and Shadow Red. Nick shook up bubbly to spray over the adoring fans, and they loved getting drenched!

In a recent article posted by the Las Vegas Review-Journal Raj Kapoor, Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life creative director, spoke about their upcoming residency.

Creative director aims for rock-concert feel with Backstreet show

The name? Yeah, they’re kind of stuck with that Boy thing. But the creative director of the Backstreet Boys’ Las Vegas showcase says to expect “a really modern, masculine visual spectacle.”

“We really wanted to play them up as these guys who have a very large female following,” Raj Kapoor says. “Really kind of capitalize on them embracing who they are as powerful, successful men who have had a huge recording career and are having a tremendous resurgence.”

Kapoor also helmed Shania Twain’s comeback show at Caesars Palace and, on a smaller scale, worked on John Fogerty’s Las Vegas show. This week, he was busy readying live performances and screen content for Sunday’s Academy Awards.

But for “Larger Than Life,” which opens Wednesday at Planet Hollywood, “We’re not going so theatrical,” he says. “There’s nothing that looks like Cirque du Soleil. There’s nothing that looks Broadway-esque at all.

“It feels very masculine, it looks very modern. More like an actual concert. There’s nothing that moves us into that super-theatrical world.”
