Backstreet will be back—and back and back and back—in Las Vegas. According to the AP, the Backstreet Boys confirmed reports Friday they will begin a Planet Hollywood residency in Vegas next year. Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life will feature members Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean, and Kevin Richardson. Littrell says in a statement the show will be like a typical Backstreet Boys concert "on steroids." The group's first performance will be March 1. Tickets go on sale Oct. 1. The show will be held in the same theater where Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez perform their Vegas residencies. The Backstreet Boys formed in 1993 and are best known for such hits as I Want It That Way, As Long as You Love Me, and Everybody (Backstreet's Back).
