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.”
