98 Degrees Reunion Set for Later This Summer
Another boy band reunion! Crooning brothers Nick and Drew Lachey have agreed to team up with ole chums Justin Jeffre and Jeff Timmons for an one-show revival of their defunct ’90s boy band 98 Degrees.
Look for the guys to hit the stage for the first time in 11 years at the Summer Mixtape Festival in Hershey, Pennsylvania on Aug. 18.
Nick told On Air with Ryan Seacrest Wednesday:
“…There really is nothing like coming together as a unit, as a group, as a band, on the stage, and I think we all miss that. We all miss the rush of being onstage together, performing together, and certainly the fans have kind of been clamouring for it, so it just felt right. We always said we were not broken up, we were just taking a break, and now it just seemed like the right time to put everything back together…I didn’t say we weren’t going to do it, but there was some speculation about a full tour happening this summer and our fans have been kind of eager to see us get back together.”
“I just wanted to make sure that they understood that a full tour wasn’t happening this summer, but obviously [I’m] very excited to announce that we’re doing this big festival in Hershey in August. So that will be our one and only appearance.”
Nick Lachey is expecting his first child with wife Vanessa Minnillo-Lachey later this year.
