Backstreet Boys is still the king of boybands! A. J. McLean, Howie D., Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, and Brian Littrell have been off the radar for years and gave the spotlight to other male group singers, but the group has proven that they can still make crowds go wild.
After their amazing performance in Miss USA 2016 last Sunday, June 5, many are becoming more and more interested about the Backstreet Boys. Both young and older Backstreet Boys fans are dying to know more details about them including tours, a new album, and even a possible Vegas residency.
Fortunately, Backstreet Boys are finally giving the fans what they need. Kevin Richardson revealed to Hollywood Life at 103.5 KTU’s KTUphoria on June 4 that they are working on a new album and it will be released soon. Not only that, the 44-year-old singer, model, actor, and composer also revealed that the Backstreet Boys will be going on a tour.
“[The album] is just now getting started. We wanna have it done by the end of the year, and then hopefully something ready to come out in Spring. Then going on tour, everything,” Kevin Richardson shared.
Regarding the Backstreet Boys Vegas residency, Nick Carter drove all of their die-hard fans into a frenzy as he confirmed in April that the Backstreet Boys have signed on for a Vegas residency! It’s just a “trial run,” but the popular boyband of the 90s is definitely open to a more permanent stay.
Entertainment Tonight spoke to Nick Carter at the L.A. premiere of his new Sci-fi flick, Dead7, and he told them the band has signed a deal for nine shows to test the waters and see if a permanent show should get the green light.
“If it does really well, then I think that’ll open that door and then in future we’ll do it,” Nick Carter told the site. “So that’s definitely going to happen but we’re going to do a trial run first.”
Before the news was confirmed, Hollywood Life talked to Nick Carter about a Vegas residency. “I think it’d be a lot of fun to have one place for us to go and shake things up out in Vegas!” he told the site. “Not saying anything, but if anyone’s been to a BSB show, they know we bring the fire — and we have a lot of energy! It’d be awesome to light up Vegas!”
