But it's not a full-fledged residency run just yet.

The Los Angeles Times reported that the quintet is launching a trial residency of "Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life" starting March 1 at the Axis at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. It's the same location Spears and Lopez are performing at for their current residencies, "Piece of Me" and "All I Have," respectively.

The band said in a promotional video announcing the residency that the show is going to live up to its name.

"We’re going to call the show Larger Than Life, and we’re taking that theme and we’re going to run with it," Kevin Richardson said.

“If you’ve ever been to a Backstreet Boys show, it’s going to be that on steroids," Brian Littrell added.

A.J. McLean was succinct: "Be prepared."

Ticket prices start at $39 and there will be VIP packages and Meet & Greets available. Dates run from March to July 1.

TMZ video, which contains explicit language, shows a man approach Hadid from behind, as she is flanked by security on both sides, and lift her in the air while she pauses to pose for photos with fans.

"Let go of me,” Hadid said. "Who the (expletive) are you? You piece of (expletive)."

Hadid can be seen on the video elbowing the man in the face before he walks away. Bella Hadid attempted to remove the man's hands from around Gigi Hadid's body.

The Hollywood Reporter reported that Ukrainian media personality Vitalii Sediuk is the man responsible for the incident. He is known for pranking celebrities at public events or spaces, most notably attempting to tackle Brad Pitt at a movie premiere in 2014 and trying to kiss Will Smith on a red carpet in 2012, for which Smith slapped him.

"While I consider Gigi Hadid beautiful, she and her friend Kendall Jenner have nothing to do with high fashion. By doing this, I encourage the fashion industry to put true talents on the runway and Vogue covers instead of well-connected cute girls from Instagram," Sediuk said in a statement to THR. "You can call it a manifest or a protest. This is also a wake-up call for Anna Wintour, who turned Vogue into a tabloid by putting Kardashians and other similar celebrities on a cover of a well-respected magazine," he said.

Whatever the reason for the prank, Sediuk's antics have been criticized and some have called it assault, which he considers to be "over-dramatic."

Hadid said on Twitter she was well within her rights to defend herself. The tweets were in response to an article that had a since-changed headline claiming she had not been exhibiting "model behavior."

Levine's spokeswoman, Carleen Donovon, told The Associated Press that the couple welcomed a daughter, who they named Dusty Rose Levine. No other information on the birth was immediately available.

Prinsloo, a Victoria's Secret model, and Levine, a regular coach on NBC's "The Voice," have been married for two years. Dusty Rose is the couple's first child.

"It's awesome," Levine told E! News in April after learning that he was going to be a father. "I'm going to spoil (Behati). ... I love kids so much."

Levine apologized earlier this month after Maroon 5 canceled seven tour dates ahead of Prinsloo's due date.

"We kind of wanted to make sure we could do whatever we could to make it as smooth as possible, (but) unfortunately it's just – it's life, and it's beautiful but it can be complicated and I apologize for any inconvenience," the Maroon 5 frontman said in a video posted to Instagram.

Due to the upcoming birth of my child, we've had to move around 7 dates. More info at maroon5.com. We're very sorry for the inconvenience and I look forward to seeing you all very soon.

The tour dates were rescheduled for early 2017.
