Backstreet's back, all right.

E! News has learned that the fan-favorite boy band of the 2000s, The Backstreet Boys, are returning to the stage to entertain fans with a residency in Las Vegas. The show Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life, will feature your heartthrobs Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson inside The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino beginning March 1, 2017.

But tickets go on sale next week! Tickets will go on sale to the public on Oct. 1 at 10 a.m. PST. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Monday at 10 a.m. PST through Sept. 30 at 10 p.m. PST. 

"We're going to call the show Larger Than Life, and we're taking that theme and we're going to run with it," Richardson said. "What can you expect?" Littrell asks, "If you've ever been to a Backstreet Boys show… it's going to be that on steroids."
"We're excited to bring our experience from being a touring act with all of our hits to Vegas, so that it becomes something that you'll never forget," Carter adds.

Fans have been on the edge of their seat when it came to BSB possibly going back on tour, especially when rumors claimed they'd be teaming up with—wait for it—The Spice Girls. Speculation surrounding a possible joint venture hit the Internet late last year, and E! News discussed the idea with Carter during an interview.

"I actually did a little Twitter shout-out to Mel B because we're friends and I said, ‘Hey this could be a cool idea. What if we did a Backstreet Boys-Spice Girls tour?'" Carter began. "And there were talks in the past about it and we had done the New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys tour in the past. I think this would be that last hurrah—the two big groups from the late ‘90s. Maybe do a world tour, stadiums, stuff like that and do a package together."

Well, a Las Vegas residency is a good start.
