98 Degrees isn't merely reuniting for a performance at the Summer Mixtape Fest. Nick Lachey and the boys will also perform on "The Today Show" and have recently been in the studio.
The news, which was made public via a press release, will surely please fans of the "Just One Night (Una Noche)" singers. The "Today" appearance will take place on Aug. 17, one day before the previously announced Summer Mixtape Fest.
As if that weren't enough, the Backstreet Boys will dance their way across your television screen as well. After recently announcing that Kevin Richardson was back in the group, the band agreed to perform as part of "Good Morning America's" Summer Concert Series.
In other '90s news, the Summerland Tour -- featuring Sugar Ray, Everclear, Lit, Gin Blossoms and Marcy Playground -- continues to roll right along. A colleague who went to the tour's New York show described it as "radical, in a '90s way and also, the bomb."
It's been said before, but there has really never been a better time for '90s artists to pick up their
instruments tight T-shirts again.
S Club 7 -- a British pop group created by former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller and consisting of members Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O'Meara, Hannah Spearritt and Rachel Stevens -- rose to international fame in 2000, before splitting in 2003. In March 2012, it was announced that all original seven members would reunite for seven UK shows, with possibility of a two-album record deal.
Unlike almost all of the other 90s boy bands, the Backstreet Boys never really broke up -- although original member Kevin Richardson did quit in 2006. In 2011, the Backstreet Boys toured with New Kids on the Block, and BSB is planning to release a new album in 2012.
After reuniting in 2008, New Kids On The Block embarked on a highly successful reunion tour. Then in 2011, they joined The Backstreet Boys for the NKOTBSB tour and released a compilation album of the same name, featuring their hits "You Got It (The Right Stuff)" and "Hangin' Tough," and a new recording, "Don't Turn Out the Lights."
Take That formed in 1990 and after a few No. 1 UK singles, the British boy band split in 1996. However, the group reunited in 2005 and have been touring and releasing new music ever since. The band's next album is expected to hit shelves in late 2012, and Take That is also in talks to open the London 2012 Olympic Games.
After reuniting in 2007 for a Spice Girls reunion tour, the British girl power group may reunite again for Queen Elizabeth's upcoming Diamond Jubilee in June. Scary, Baby, Sporty, Ginger and Posh may also don their platform boots for the London 2012 Olympic Games this summer.
