Will *NSYNC Be The Next Big Nostalgia Tour?
Who's going to buy tickets, you ask? Well, it's gonna be me.
We've been blessed with dozens of great nostalgia tours in recent years. The Spice Girls are currently on tour (sans Victoria, but whatevs). There was NKOTBSB, a tour that combined New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys.
In the past few years, Australia has been graced with tours from Hanson, Aqua, B*Witched, 5ive, S Club and even Smash Mouth.
There's really no denying that late 90s/early 00s nostalgia is hotter than ever, and this morning, Lance Bass hinted that *NSYNC may be the next band to reunite and hit the road.
Rumours of an *NSYNC reunion tour have been buzzing since the group, minus Justin Timberlake, popped up outta nowhere to perform with Ariana Grande during her headlining gig at Coachella back in April.
Lance said that since then, they've been inundated with "many many" offers to reform officially.
Calling their Coachella appearance "incredible", the singer told Variety that "it was a big moment for *NSYNC".
"We hadn’t performed ['Tearin’ Up My Heart'] with that choreography since 1998, so when Ariana told us she wanted to do that song, we were like, ‘We have to re-learn that thing’," he revealed, adding: "It’s amazing how the moves and harmonies came back so quickly.”
As well as "Tearin' Up My Heart", the group also joined Ari to perform her hit single “break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored". The song samples the *NSYNC album track “It Makes Me Ill” from their 2000 album 'No Strings Attached'.
Although Lance said that for the moment, the Coachella reunion was "definitely a one-off", he went on to add that “there are many, many things coming across [their] desk because of Coachella" and that they "would be stupid not to discuss and look at".
“People are really into nostalgia right now,” he said. “They’re really digging the 90s and early 2000s again, and I think fans just want to feel that innocence and excitement again.”
