Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, Boyz II Men Members Team for ‘The After Party’ Las Vegas Engagement

AJ, Wayna, Nick & Joey

*NSYNC’s Joey Fatone, Backstreet Boysmembers AJ McLean and Nick Carter and Boyz II Men’s Wanya Morris are teaming up for a nostalgic four-night engagement at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas in August.

The musicians will unite in the intimate Sands Showroom for “The After Party,” an interactive show which will see the crooners perform each other’s hits with a live band, rock their loved choreography, explore other genres, bring in surprise guests and share untold stories from their time on the road.

“We wanted to do something with the idea of the Rat Pack meets the Pop age now — different artists coming together and doing a show that’s fun, but also takes you through a bit of history,” Fatone, 44, tells Variety. “But it organically also turned into more of a celebration of our bands and a homage to pop culture.”

“You’re going to see these guys and these groups in a light you’ve never seen them in before,” Fatone adds.

The news comes just weeks after McLean, Carter, Fatone and his bandmate Lance Bass hit the stage at The Grove in Los Angeles to debut their collaborative group “Back-Sync.” Earlier in June, McLean also teamed up with *NSYNC’s Chris Kirkpatrick and 98 Degrees’ Jeff Timmons for a Las Vegas fundraiser benefiting the Victoria’s Voice Foundation.

Fatone says “The After Party” was in the works well before Back-Sync, partly inspired by his “Joey Fatone and Friends” concerts at the 2019 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. The shows saw him perform alongside musicians including Kirkpatrick, Ryan Cabrera and Boyz II Men’s Nathan Morris.

Both Fatone and Carter were further inspired after competing on “The Masked Singer.” “It was so fun doing songs and covers, we thought, ‘Why not integrate that into something we can do with a show?’” Fatone says, noting that all four musicians have also competed on “Dancing With the Stars.” “We’re getting our setlist together right now and coming up with a lot of crazy, interesting ideas.”

“We’ve had so much fun putting this show together,” adds McLean. “I can’t wait to share it with the fans. I promise an incredible night of wild surprises.”

What Does the Future of *NSYNC Hold?

Following *NSYNC (minus Justin Timberlake) performing with Ariana Grande at Coachella last spring, a lot of people wondered what could be next. A tour? A new album? And would it be with or without JT? Well, Joey says there were definitely some question marks after their weekend in the desert. “We started getting phone calls, of course,” he says. “‘Well, are you guys back together? What are you doing? Oh my gosh! There’s an offer here.’ This, that. There were offers thrown on the table, but the whole thing was, I don’t think we were ready for it yet. I don’t think even at the moment, like to really mentally wrap our head around to see what we want to do, and I think that’s the conservation that we really have to have that we haven’t had yet. It’s really going: ‘Do we wanna do it, or do we not? And if we do want to do it, what is it?’ And that’s something that will definitely take some time.”

That said, he’s not shutting down the possiblity. “It’s not a no, but it’s not a yes, because the thing is, we may come up with an idea that may not work for all of us. … If I did do something like this, I think it’s just something that definitely we will wanna do maybe more music, but also have fun, do you know what I mean? … There’s not a lot of pressure anymore. Usually back in the day, it was, ‘You need to be No. 1. You need to do this. This should be that. This should be this.’ For us, if we ever came back out, it’s like it’d be nice to do all this stuff and be No. 1, but we’ve already done it. We’re in our 40s! We got kids now! The backstage is going to be completely different, that’s for damn sure! There’ll be a lot more kids running around, no groupies,” he laughs.
