Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Howie Dorough of Backstreet Boys celebrated their “In a World Like This” tour concert stop at Mandalay Bay Events Center on Saturday night with an early Sunday morning official concert after-party at Body English in the Hard Rock Hotel.

Before the festivities and Carter’s DJ set at the after-hours nightclub, the trio hosted a meet-and-greet for 150 fans at nearby Vinyl, which just celebrated its first anniversary with a two-night concert by Courtney Love.

On the arrivals carpet nearing 2 a.m. Sunday, Richardson, back with BSB for the first time in a decade, and Dorough donned black from head-to-toe, while Carter kept it more casual in a gray Tampa Bay Buccaneers T-shirt (Carter was likely an unhappy NFL fan later Sunday) and black track pants.

Once inside Body English, Carter, Dorough and Richardson hit the stage to thank partygoers for coming out and chanted, “Ain’t no party like a Backstreet party because a Backstreet party don’t stop” as the crowd sang along. Carter took over the DJ booth for a one-hour set, and Dorough and Richardson joined him onstage as they pulled up several fans and posed for photographs.

Carter’s throwback beats included “I Got a Feeling” by The Black Eyed Peas, “Whatever You Like” by T.I., “This Is How We Do It” by Montell Jordan and much more. The Boys danced, sang and partied until the early hours of the morning.

BSB band mates Brian Littrell and A.J. McLean skipped the post-concert soiree. Thanks to Erik Kabik of Retna for his photo gallery. Backstreet’s back!
