Boy band 98 Degrees will reunite for a summer tour, RumorFix reports. The original lineup of the group, which features Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Jeff Timmons and Justin Jeffre, will hit the road for a 15-city tour in July and August, a source close to the band told the site. Rumors of the quartet’s return started spreading yesterday when their website was updated for the first time in a decade.
98 Degrees, who are best known for their hits “If She Only Knew” and “Because of You,” are returning at a good time for boy bands. Veteran groups Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block have enjoyed major success on the road, both together as NKOTBSB and on their own, and young groups One Direction and the Wanted are currently blowing up on the pop charts.
