Brothers Nick and Drew Lachey took to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” this morning to announce the reunion. The group has been putting down rumors of a reunion concert for a while now, and Nick actually responded via Twitter to let down excited fans.
“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 star tweeted.
Nick Lachey and wife Vanessa are expecting their first child in the late summer or early fall of this year, so hopefully the performance at the Summer Mixtape Festival in Hershey, PA on August 18 doesn’t coincide with the delivery! Drew, the winner of the second season of Dancing with the Stars, is definitely a contender for a spot on the Dancing with the Stars All-Star show. Luckily, filming doesn’t start until September so if he does end up in the cast, it will not conflict with the concert.
Keep reading to see what Nick and Drew have to say about the one-time reunion concert.
He cleared up many lingering questions when he said, “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. 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.”
Drew said, “We’re very excited about the opportunity, and we’ve been toying around with the idea for a couple years…”
Later he went on to add, “Most of us have families or kids on the way, so it really is about making sure that everybody can take care of their own responsibilities at home, and with their family, and with their private lives. If we can get together and do more that would be great. We’ve missed working with each other, performing together. So, we’re always open to that opportunity.”
Other bands set to perform at the Summer Mixtape Festival include Kelly Clarkson, NKOTBSB, Carly Rae Jepsen, LL Cool J, The Fray, New Kids on the Block, The Wanted, DJ Pauly D, The Ready Set, and Carolina Liar.Read More
Whitney Houston had a fitting final send off at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday (May 20) as Jordin Sparks and John Legend took to the stage at the Mgm Grand Garden Arena to honour the late superstar. That was the highlight performance of the show. You can watch all the performances after the jump.
Legend opened the tribute with a powerful rendition of “The Greatest Love of All” and Sparks, who played the singer’s onscreen daughter in what will be her final movie, Sparkle, stunned the crowd with an emotional cover of Houston’s signature tune “I Will Always Love You.”
Cameras at the ceremony, which was aired live on America’s East Coast, caught the tragic star’s daughter Bobbi Kristina smiling with pride, wiping tears away and clapping as Sparks hit the high notes of her mother’s song.
Comedienne Whoopi Goldberg introduced the tribute with a funny story about her late friend, recalling, “The first time I met Whitney Houston, she saved my life; we were in London at the Free Nelson Mandela concert when two giant black men, her security guards, grabbed me because apparently I was in the way. I then heard a magnificent voice say, ‘Stop, that’s Whoopi. Put her down!’… So I owe Whitney a lot.”
Goldberg then joined Sparks and Legend to present Bobbi Kristina and her aunt Pat Houston – Whitney’s sister-in-law and manager – with the late diva’s Millennium Award.
Pat said, “This is truly an honour. We thank you for honouring Whitney with the Millennium Award.”
Bobbi Kristina then took centre stage and, fighting back tears, she added, “I just wanna say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all. Not just from when it was good… Thank you so much for showing that much love because she deserved it.
“I’m just blessed to have been in such an incredible woman’s life. There will never be another one, ever.”
After the tribute, Sparks revealed it was a thrill to finally get to meet her movie mother’s real life daughter.
The singer said, “I never got to meet Bobbi Kristina. It was really emotional to see her. Whitney had talked to her about me and she told me about her and so we felt a connection.”Read More
