A couple of weeks ago a rumor spread around that ’90s boy band 98 Degrees were reuniting for a comeback tour. The story was that the four members — Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Jeff Timmons and Justin Jeffre — would all come back together for a 15-date tour that would happen this summer.
The rumor was instigated when the band’s site, which hadn’t been updated in years, featured a brand new 98 Degrees symbol. Nick and Jeff even Tweeted little hints about a comeback.
Well, not so fast.
Nick Lachey went to his Twitter yesterday to update his fans on the status of a 98 Degrees reunion:
If you don’t understand the Babies ‘R Us reference, Nick and his wife Vanessa Minnillo are expecting a child. And Nick’s involvement in his future child’s life might be the reason why we’re not going to see a 98 Degrees tour anytime soon.
Jeff Timmons exclusively talked to RumorFix and he admits there were talks of a tour but the timing was off.
“You guys were right on about the tour. There was a tour and reunion in the works — however, timing is everything and we felt we just needed more time to put the right experience together for our fans.”
Jeff also confirmed that they are looking into doing future dates for the tour.
All we have to say is, don’t let us down, fellas!
