UPDATE (4/4/15): It’s happening! During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Nick Carter confirmed that the band has signed a nine-show deal to test the waters before committing to a full Vegas residency. Original story below.

The dream of the ’90s may very well soon be coming to life in Las Vegas!

Following in the footsteps of Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez, the Backstreet Boys may be showing the denizens of Las Vegas the shape of their heart with their very own Sin City residency. A.J. McLean hinted that the beloved boyband could be heading to Vegas after their upcoming tour during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

“We are talking about it. We are looking into it right now and we’ll see,” McLean said. “We’ll see what happens! Right now, we’re actually back in the studio making our ninth album. If anything transpires it’ll probably come after our brand new tour.”

McLean and fellow Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson recently went on the world’s best fact-finding mission by attending Britney Spears’ Vegas show, Britney: Piece of Me.

Research never sounded so good.

“Kevin and I went out there with our managers to do some recon for a possible residency,” McLean continued. “We wanted to go see the production, see the show, catch up with our old friend Britney.”


We know one BSB superfan who would definitely buy a ticket to the band’s show!

Huge confession… biggest @backstreetboys fan! Tonight was truly a dream for me. #Vegas #PieceOfMe
