No Reunion Tour For 98 Degrees
Nick Lachey has confirmed that former boy band 98 degress will not be hitting the road for a summer tour this year.
A report by Rumorfix picked up traction from several outlets in late March after the band’s formerly stagnant website reportedly posted an update regarding a 15-city reunion tour. At the time, band member Jeff Timmons tweeted: “Look, you can never believe rumors, but I’d be open to it for sure!”
Lachey ended those rumors on Thursday, tweeting that he was “So psyched to see all the excitement for a 98 degree tour, but the only tour I’ll be doing this summer is at baby’s ‘r us!” The singer does appear to be open to the idea in the future, adding the hashtag “#neversaynever.”
98 Degrees is best known for their pop hits “Because of You,” “The Hardest Thing” and “Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche).” The group released five albums, including one holiday disc, between 1996 and 2002. The band has yet to reunite over the past 10 years, but all have pursued additional projects.
