ET caught up with A.J. McLean at The Brothers Grimsby premiere in Los Angeles on Thursday, when the 38-year-old singer said the boy band is definitely interested in a Las Vegas residency a la Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez.
“We are talking about it. We are looking into it right now and we’ll see,” McLean exclusively told ET. “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, and I’m doing my very first solo project. There’s a lot of things going on this year.” (credit)
I am both excited and not very excited to hear about this potential for a residency. Most people who has residencies no longer go on tour. I mean Celine hasn’t been on a tour in forever which is a shame because I would drop Adele tickets type money on a Celine Dion show.
Back to the subject though!
I have been to eight Backstreet Boys concerts that have all been within driving distance. The last thing I would want to do is spend an arm and a leg to go see their Vegas show. Although they would probably make a killing off of it. Let’s be real, everyone loves to be nostalgic and with the success of Britney’s show, I don’t think they would have any issue selling out show after show.
Luckily for all of us that can’t afford to fly to Vegas it doesn’t look like this residency would be the too near future. They are working on new music, will go on another tour. So don’t worry, we have time to save up for a Vegas weekend. I don’t know who we is, but I am going to assume it will be a we type of thing because I would die if I went to Vegas alone.
One thing is for sure, as long as there is music Backstreet Boys will be coming back again!
