The show Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life will feature members Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson.

Kevin said: "We're going to call the show 'Larger Than Life', and we're taking that theme and we're going to run with it."

Brian said the show, which has been initially scheduled to run from March to July, will be like a typical Backstreet Boys concert "on steroids".

The first Vegas performance will be on March 1 after tickets go on sale October 1.

The show will be held in the same theatre where Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez perform their Vegas residencies.

The Backstreet Boys formed in 1993 and are best known for such hits as I Want It That Way, As Long as You Love Me and Everybody (Backstreet's Back).
