Following the success of New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys’ recent reunions, 98 Degrees will be reuniting this year for a summer tour.
According to RumorFix, Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Jeff Timmons and Justin Jeffre will embark on a 15-city run this summer between July and August. Uberfans initiated rumors of the reunion on Wednesday when the band’s website was updated with a new layout and logo for the first time in 10 years.
The ‘Because of You’ and ‘I Do (Cherish You)’ hitmakers have yet to make a formal announcement about the rumored tour, but RumorFix says tour dates will be released in about a week.
Boy bands are so hot right now! Seriously, though, boy band mania is in full effect with newbies like the Wanted and One Direction taking over America, so it’s no wonder why 98 Degrees (may) have decided to re-band and take their show on the road once again.
The timing of the reunion is both culturally on point and personally perfect for Nick. The singer’s wife, Vanessa Minnillo, is pregnant with the couple’s first child, which is due in “late summer, early fall,” reports Us Weekly. It looks like it’s going to be a big year for the 98 Degrees crew!
