Backstreet’s back, all right!
Just because sometimes the world isn’t all Donald Trump and crisis in Syria and ISIS, the Backstreet Boys are here to bring you a solid shot of joy in this otherwise dark, dark existence. That’s right — the Backstreet Boys Cruise is letting us pack up all our ’90s nostalgia and take it on a boat for a sixth trip from Miami to Grand Turk.
For the sixth glorious time, fans can get tickets to go on a baller vacation with Nick Carter, AJ McLean, Howie D., Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell in the flesh, and since you’re all on a boat together, we can only imagine there’s gotta be some solid hang time. I mean, it’s not like they can get away.
Tickets include a bunch of mid-ocean theme parties, two special BSB performances per day and meet-and-greet times with the whole band, because obviously. The only downside to the whole experience is that it’s still so far in the future — Backstreet Boys Cruise No. 6 doesn’t depart until May 4, 2018. Oh, well; plenty of time to get that vacation request in at work.
Even though the Backstreet Boys have been performing for 24 years (!!!), don’t even think they can’t still hang.
“It is three to four days of debauchery in the middle of the ocean,” McLean told Refinery29. “When I tell you it is crazy — it truly is.”
Also, the Boys keep coming back for more cruises because they really, truly love their fans and it’s so freakin’ sweet.
“The best part about these cruises is we get to be more hands on and more accessible to our fans and that is something we really pride ourselves on,” he said. “We love our fans to the utmost. And without our fans we wouldn’t be here for over 24 years.”
BRB, buying tickets right now.
