Nick Lachey talks 98 Degrees' reunion, late-'90s nostalgia, 'Total Request Live' and more
Here in 2016, we find ourselves awash in nostalgia for the late '90s and early 2000s: O.J. Simpson, Independence Day, Pokémon Go, revivals of boy bands like 98 Degrees and O-Town, whose "MY2K Tour" hits Tampa on Friday. Lest we forget, it was 2004 when NBC first launched a little reality TV competition called The Apprentice, starring Donald Trump.
"This is a time for people to go back and relive a time when it seemed a little lighter," 98 Degrees hunk Nick Lachey said in a recent phone interview. "It seemed like there was a little less stress and a little less ugliness in the world. Whether that's true or not, maybe it's just my perception, but it sure felt like it. That's why people are excited to go back and revisit that moment in time."
The MY2K Tour with 98 Degrees, O-Town, Dream and Ryan Cabrera hits Tampa's MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre at 8 p.m. Friday. Tickets start at $20. Click here.
