Earlier this month, millions of pop music fans were excited when they heard rumors that former ’90s boy band 98 Degrees was reuniting for a tour this summer.
“I honestly don’t think it’s gonna happen at all now,” founder and creator of 98 Degrees Jeff Timmons said, candidly. “If it wasn’t gonna happen now, it wasn’t gonna happen last year … Maybe it’ll never happen.”
“We had gotten serious about it,” he said, of the proposed summer tour. “So much so that a tour was being put together for us; a 15-city tour. We got on the phone, all of the guys discussed it, and it seemed like a go. And then not everybody wanted to do it, for various reasons. We make decisions collectively as a group; not one person make decisions. [Since] not all four of us were on the same page, we decided not to do it.”
“I would love to get back in the studio with 98 degrees, but I just don’t think it’s gonna happen,” Timmons says. “Some of us want to do music, and some of us don’t. We all gotta want to do it; we can’t be forced into that. It’ll come through in the music. So, I don’t think it’s gonna happen. I would love the opportunity, but right now it doesn’t seem like it’s gonna go down.”
