Set List: Backstreet's Back as the Backstreet Boys Open Their Las Vegas Residency

by VVN Music

The Backstreet Boys hit the stage for the first of their 26-show residency at Planet Hollywood's Axis auditorium on Wednesday night to an ecstatic crowd who danced and sang along to a set full of hits.

The group kept the show to their own singing and dancing with, reportedly, not a lot of spectacle and costumes. It was just the five singers and their dancers.

The one exception was the recreation of the folding chair routine from their 1997 video As Long As You Love Me.

Notable is that the band fit in full length versions of all twelve of their top forty hits except for Drowning (2001 / #28 U.S. / #4 U.K.) and sixteen of the nineteen that hit the British top forty with the exception of Drowning, Just Want You to Know (2005 / #8 U.K.) and Inconsolable (2007 / #24)
