Can you feel your temperature rising? Seriously, are you running a fever yet? Because 98 Degrees is back!
Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre and Jeff Timmons are reuniting for one night only as part of the Summer Mixtape Festival. Brothers Nick and Drew shared the exciting boy-band news Wednesday morning on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS FM show.
"We're very excited about the opportunity, and we've been toying around with the idea for a couple years of, 'If we got back together, when would be the right scenario,' and this music festival right here just kind of seemed like the right time to get back together and do a show and kick the tires and see how it feels," Drew, 35, said.
Nick, 38, explained why he quashed rumors of a 98 Degrees reunion earlier this year…
"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," said the dad-to-be, who is expecting his first child with wife Vanessa. "I just wanted to make sure that they understood that a full tour wasn't happening this summer, but obviously 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 tweeted excitedly about the group's news. "Felt like 2001 all over again!" he wrote. "Can't wait for August 18 in Hershey. Be there. #98degrees"
The Hershey, Pa., show will be the group's first full reunion since they split in 2002. (Visit mixtapefestival.com for tickets and info.)
