This past week was full of hype as the 98 Degrees twitter came to life again, showing us each member of 98 Degrees in posts and reminding us of past tours and making fans remember just how long they’ve loved 98 Degrees!!!! On Thursday, they promised “Santa is coming tomorrow” and by 9 AM EST Friday, Santa delivered! He delivered the cover of a shiny new Christmas album of 12 songs that goes on sale October 13th with promises of the title track, “Let it Snow”, “What Christmas Means To Me”, “Little Saint Nick”, and “Run Rudolph Run” and one original song.
And then they delivered another gift, tour dates for their 31 city adventure starting November 10 in Iowa and ending December 23rd in Nevada. Tickets for most shows go on sale this coming Friday, August 18, 2017 to the general public but it seems there are presales for VIP packages and possibly fan club (What fan club? Yeah, we wish we knew!).
We will continue to keep you updated as we hear information, so please don’t forget to follow us on twitter and while you’re at it, please join in the conversation on the Just Justin Jeffre facebook group and the Still Loving 98 Degrees and more facebook group and follow the Nick fanatics page on facebook . All these folks work very hard to try to keep the fans up to date as well!!!
Here’s some articles about the Christmas “gifts”:

Congrats to Drew and Nick and the entire Lachey’s Bar staff for a fantastic year!

Tuesday morning, Drew and Nick were in NYC for Bud Light’s #UpForWhatever campaign and doing bikram yoga with an unsuspecting class.

Here’s the gist of the articles:
A couple weeks ago on a Friday night at Lachey’s Bar, we asked Nick why he hadn’t had Drew on Big Morning Buzz this season and he smiled and revealed that before the end of the season, he would have something special with all of our 98 Degrees!
