First, one hundred and fifty lucky fans were admitted to a special meet and greet at Vinyl, the Hard Rock’s newest and smallest live entertainment venue, with an old school speakeasy vibe.

Then the boys—Nick Carter, Howie Dorough and Kevin Richardson—proceeded to Body English Nightclub & Afterhours where a full house awaited. The threesome immediately hit the stage and thanked everyone for coming out. The crowd sang along as they chanted, “Ain’t no party like a Backstreet party, because a Backstreet party don’t stop.”

Carter took over the DJ booth for an exclusive one-hour set, playing hits like “I Got A Feeling,” by The Black Eyed Peas; “Whatever You Like,” by T.I. and “This Is How We Do It,” by Montell Jordan. The guys pose for pictures with a few lucky girls who were pulled on stage. What, no guys?
