We had the chance to see O-Town in 2016 at Mixtape Festival and were blown away by how incredible they looked and sounded. Their set was SO MUCH FUN (who doesn’t love “Liquid Dreams”?), their outfits were on point (overalls + tie dye = yes), and the new material they played was excellent. We’re excited to hear they are working on their 4th studio album after wrapping up their Summer tour with 98 Degrees.
O-Town launched an official Kickstarter campaign for the album, the first album in the band’s history to be free of any label, funded fully by fans for fans! The campaign was a success – they met their goal in an incredible 7 hours! You can still support the album campaign and earn prizes like the overalls Trevor wore on the My2K Tour, the chance to be their tour manager for a day, or a private O-Town concert. And of course, you’ll get a copy of the new album when it’s released! Head over to their Kickstarter page now to pledge your support for the future of boybands.
We all know the greatest era for music was the 90s and early 00s (if we’re getting specific, 1999-2000). So we were thrilled to hear about a new tour, the MY2K Tour, celebrating the music of Y2K! The tour is hitting venues across the US this Summer, with some of your favorite artists from that era. 98 Degrees are out on their second major tour since their reunion in 2012, along with O-Town, Ryan Cabrera, and Dream. The MY2K Tour includes a stop at the Mixtape Festival in Hershey, PA, reuniting 98 Degrees with their Package Tour mates NKOTB and Boyz II Men.
Tickets and VIP packages go on sale Friday April 29th at 10am local time and we can say with confidence, we know what you’re doing this summer! Click HERE for more info about the MY2K Tour.

We’ve been fangirling hard waiting for the premiere “Dead 7,” the zombie movie written by Nick Carter, starring members of *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, O-Town and 98 Degrees. And it just got even better. Nick, Howie Dorough, and AJ McLean of Backstreet Boys; Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone of *NSYNC; Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees; and Erik-Michael Estrada from O-Town joined forces to record a song for the soundtrack.
The movie premieres this Friday, April 1st at 8pm on SyFy, from the people who brought you “Sharknado.” AKA this is already the best movie of 2016 and you better be tuned in on Friday night. Listen to “In The End” from the movie below!
Download the track for free here! We can only hope this is just the first time that these boybands will join forces!
Be sure to follow Secret Fangirls on Twitter for updates and live tweets from the movie!
We’ve been the lamenting the lack of a boy band reunion in 2014, after recent years that brought us NKOTBSB, 98 Degrees, and even an *NSYNC reunion for a brief but glorious moment at the VMAs last year! After much speculation, O-Town announced they will be reuniting for a tour and album this fall! Unfortunately the bands’ most famous member, Ashley Parker Angel, appears to have better things to do and won’t be part of this.
While O-Town was never a priority in our boy band fangirling days, who doesn’t remember their single “Liquid Dreams?” Looking back, we aren’t sure why this song was played at middle school dances, but it was a huge Top 10 single for America’s 5th most popular boy band. Watch the video below and enjoy having it stuck in your head for the rest of the day!
The reunion comes 10 years after the bands’ breakup, and O-Town is calling the reunion a “new beginning.” The band started thinking of a reunion just for the fun of it, to give fans a chance to see them perform old songs, and it ended up sparking new ideas and developing into new music. We’re hoping that *NSYNC felt some of this in their reunion last year, and are secretely working on new music as well! (Remember Justin Timberlake is a master of recording in secret. It can be done).

It’s been an amazing couple of years for boyband aficionados such as ourselves. It all started when NKOTBSB (that’s New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys, duh) announced they would be joining forces for a tour in 2011 (arguably the best tour of our entire lives). The next year, 98 Degrees reunited! We still aren’t sure if the t-shirt we got at their Mixtape Festival show has a picture taken in 2002 or 2012. They’ve aged EXTREMELY well. And of course 2013 brought us the Package Tour: NKOTB, 98 Degrees, AND Boyz II Men. What more could a boyband fangirl ask for? Well then we got the greatest gift of all: NSYNC REUNITING AT THE VMAs (yes, we have to write this in all caps every time we mention it, because OMG!) We should actually thank Big Time Rush for all of these boyband reunions, because they brought boybands back. Alright?
While we impatiently wait for that NSYNC reunion tour, which unfortunately doesn’t look possible for this summer as Justin Timberlake will still be out on his 20/20 Experience World Tour, we thought about which OTHER boybands could reunite in 2014 to fill the void…
1. 5ive – They were the original Simon Cowell boyband. Their first single, “Slam Dunk (Da Funk)” debuted at number 10 in the UK, but had little success in the United States. Their second single, “When The Lights Go Out” was certified Gold in 1998. They made a few bad decisions along the way, like turning down a song called “Bye Bye Bye…”
Who can forget their iconic choreographed dance scene cameo in Disney’s “Smart House”
2. 2ge+her – Okay, so they were created as a joke but they’re still iconic in boyband history. We still find ourselves breaking out into their hit song “U + Me = Us (Calculus)”
Remember when they were on Even Stevens? Pretty sure “Back Here” was also played on every single WB show.
Apparently, this is already actually happening. They recently launched a Twitter page and keep hinting at future music.
We wanted to share the official music video here, because it’s amazing, but someone has managed to faceblock it from the internet. In summary: the boys bring a boom box to the laundromat and dance around in their muscle tanks.
6. Dream Street
Otherwise known as the Lyte Funky Ones, they made it impossible for a generation to say “Abercrombie & Fitch” without thinking of this song. (or is that just us?)
8. The Original Menudo
with Ricky Martin. If you’re into these pants, you can buy them now at American Apparel! In the women’s department.
We’ve actually never heard of them before, but this is an amazing name, so yes.
10. The Moffatts
This band has FOUR brothers!
11. S Club 7
This isn’t strictly a boyband, but they are still awesome. Remember their show on ABC Family?
But really, WE JUST WANT AN *NSYNC REUNION!! Please?
