THE Backstreet Boys have revealed they are set to tour the UK as part of their 25th Anniversary Tour.
The nineties pin-ups kicked off their group’s Larger Than Life show in Las Vegas on Wednesday night and immediately proclaimed themselves the best residency in Sin City.
They produced a larger than life performance after the show surrounded by dozens of models, while mingling with hundreds of fans as they toasted their success with over $100,000 of Moet And Chandon.
And just to add to their cheeky boast the US boy band made the proclamation at the same venue where Britney Spears performs her Piece Of Me residency.
And star Kevin Richardson revealed that the group will be hitting the road next year for a world tour celebrating their 25th anniversary – including a stop in the UK.
The boy band made their statement even though technically they have just a mini residency of 15 date although the band expect to announce more in the coming weeks.
The American boy band came out firing as they started residency in Sin City hot on the heels of Britney, Celine Dion and Elton John.
The five piece performed to sell out audience at The AXIS theatre inside Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
Addressing the crowd AJ McLean said: “This is a dream come true.
“This has been almost eight weeks of preparation in the dance studio in the vocal studio getting ready to bring you hopefully the Las Vegas residency Vegas has ever seen.”
Later his co-star Kevin Richardson revealed exclusively at the after party held at Chateau nightclub at Paris resort: “We are serious about this.
“We have loved this experience and want to continue. But we want to mix it up for fans too by playing here and still touring the world, because there are some that cannot get to Vegas.
”Next year will be a big one for us and we will be celebrating our 25th anniversary by going out around the world across Europe and everywhere really. It is going to be huge for us and our way of saying thanks to the fans for their support. We will be looking forward to putting on one hell of a show.
“And in between we would obviously like to still be here too.”
Howie Dorough added: “You know as a group we have done so many great things over our careers that we feel this is the next step.”
