Backstreet Boys is returning to the Las Vegas Strip with “A Very Backstreet Christmas Party,” a series of 12 holiday shows at the Planet Hollywood resort this upcoming holiday season.

Per the boy band’s website, the group will be playing the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino from November 11 to December 23. This is the same venue where they created their 2017-2018 residency “Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life.”

Their official Instagram page wrote, “While the army’s been nestled all snug in their beds, and visions of BSB danced through their heads… We’ve planned and we schemed such a glorious show… It’s time that we told you! We just want you to know… A VERY BACKSTREET CHRISTMAS PARTY: our Limited Las Vegas Engagement is coming this November and December!!! 🎄🎁 Tickets on sale July 16th. Fan club presale starts tomorrow!! VIP package info will be up very soon ❤️ #BSBChristmasParty”

The current line-up of the band includes original members Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson.

As we previously reported, Backstreet Boys’ AJ McLean and *NSYNC’s Chris Kirkpatrick debuted a collaborative single called “Air” last month in Vegas. The dance track comes from McLeans’ side band, ATCK (All the Cool Kids), which he formed with Brandon Mashburn and features a “revolving door” of guests, including Kirkpatrick.

During the performance, McLean and Kirkpatrick playfully debated which of their bands is superior by going back-and-forth performing hits like Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way” and *NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye.” Show host Jeff Timmons then turned up on stage to weigh in with a remixed rendition of his band 98 Degrees’ “The Hardest Thing.”
