Larger Than Life

Prepare yourself for WAY too many pictures of the Backstreet Boys.

So for my 20th birthday I asked my mom for Backstreet Boys tickets. Yes, my birthday is in October, but who would pass up a chance to see Brian Littrell!? My request was granted because I have the coolest mom ever! It was very appropriate that I went to this concert with Sophie because she was the one who introduced me to the Backstreet Boys back in about 2nd grade. So here is the AWESOME story of our night:

Sophie and I walked into the Energy Solutions Arena and went to portal f because our tickets said f2. We were pumped because we thought we were on the front row of the side. Turns out we were wrong, very wrong. We went to the usher to ask where our seats were. He told us we were on the floor! We were pumped and thought that f2 meant we were in the front row of the second section of floor seats, wrong again. After we received our pink wrist bands for the floor we asked another usher where our seats were exactly. We were led to the FRONT ROW where we received blue wrist bands that you only get if you're on the front row!! So great!! I'm glad it was a surprise and find it actually hilarious that we didn't realize that we were on the front row sooner.

Throwin' in the boy band moves

He pulled faces like this all night. At one point we were singing "I Want It That Way" to each other NO LIE!!

AJ gettin pics of the crowd

Backstreet Boys meet Alvin and the Chipmunks. What are they wearing??

Yes, I did touch his right shoulder.

The passion just radiates from his eyes

To answer your question, yes the Backstreet Boys spank each other on stage.

During "Shape of My Heart" HAHAHA

Sorry Nick, no one rocks the man scarf like Michael Johns

But I still love you


See, Howie was there, and might I add that he was looking goooood! When I was little I was against his slick pony tail, but now I come to see that Howie is a babe!

 The end :(

My apologies to Howie and AJ, I just love Brian and Nick. It was a different experience with Kevin out of the band, but it still was THE BEST NIGHT EVER.

PS. I love how AJ is balding and how the boys would address the crowd as ladies!

I took this video while trying to dance and sing along. I didn't realize that when I turned it sideways the movie would be sideways so my bad. There were tons more movies but this one was the best quality.


  1. Kate, Brian is my favorite too!! I mean.... was. He was my favorite. I'm totally too old for this now and not at all jealous.

    This is Sam Hunter by the way. Welcome to my commenting.

  2. I am so jealous. You have no idea.

  3. Oh my gosh. These pictures are FANTASTIC. (The outfits?! Hilarious.) I can't believe how close you were!!! And I can't believe Backstreet's back. I liked Brian too, and nick. And I have to admit I thought I liked Kevin back in the day, and now I don't know what I was thinking! He was kind of creepy. Thanks for this trip down memory lane. I still can't believe they're on tour. :)
