The Backstreet Boys’ “Larger Than Life” honeymoon in Vegas has ended. But the guys summoned their spouses to the stage in their finale at Zappos Theater on Saturday.
Brian Littrell’s wife, Leighanne; Kevin Richardson’s wife, Kristin; A.J. McLean’s wife, Rochelle; Nick Carter’s wife, Lauren; and Howie Dorough’s wife, Leigh, all took to the spotlight for “Shape of My Heart.”
The five couples walked to the center of the stage, with the men of BSB taking their knees and presenting the women long-stemmed roses. Who says chivalry is dead?
Littrell actually tipped off a few shrieking fans in the party pit early in the show, pointing at his wedding ring and then pointing to his bride in the VIP section. Those roses were red, as always. But later, the show’s hue turned blue as Blue Man Group from Luxor arrived to blast confetti over the crowd and amble around the stage in evident bewilderment. The Blue Men are forever out of their element.
