The Naperville Jaycees is proud to announce *NSYNC’s Lance Bass will host a lineup of boybands for the POP 2000 Tour at the Last Fling on Friday, August 31, 2018. This family-friendly tour will feature O-Town, Aaron Carter, Ryan Cabrera and Tyler Hilton from One Tree Hill.
Lance Bass is the quintessential illustration of a highly successful and driven jack-of-all-trades: singer, host, actor, producer, writer, entrepreneur, philanthropist and cosmonaut. Beyond his fame as a member of the phenomenally successful group *NSYNC, where the group sold an impressive 60 million plus records worldwide, Bass has made himself a household name throughout the globe. He is the perfect host for the POP 2000 Tour, which will allow the Naperville Jaycees’ Last Fling audience to relive their boy-band memories from the early 2000’s.
O-Town’s story began in 1999, when “Making the Band” (produced in conjunction with the creator of both the Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC) chronicled the creation, development, and rise to success of O-Town throughout three seasons of the series. The group became the first to be signed by Clive Davis to his label, J Records, and released two full-length albums, which included #1 singles, “Liquid Dreams” and “All or Nothing.” The latter of which was nominated for Song of the Year at the Radio Music Awards in 2001. After a hiatus that lasted over 10 years, the band reunited in 2014 and released their third studio album, Lines & Circles, and set out on a national tour. The band released the EP Empty Spaces in 2017.
Aside from their musical career, the group made their acting debut in 2016 starring in Backstreet Boy member, Nick Carter’s cult film, “Dead 7”, amongst members of all of the generation’s biggest boy bands, which was premiered on the Sy-Fy channel.
Aaron Carter became an international pop sensation with several multiplatinum albums and countless chart-topping singles before adulthood. His first album, Aaron Carter went 5x platinum. His second album, Aaron’s Party released in 2000, went quadruple platinum, followed by two more triple platinum album releases. Dabbling in film and television, Aaron appeared on popular TV series including “Lizzie McGuire,” “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” and “7th Heaven.” Films include “Ella Enchanted,” “PopStar” and “Supercross.” Aaron also appeared in the Broadway show, “The Fantastiks” and joined the cast of ABC’s hit competition series “Dancing With The Stars.” Now in 2018, Aaron is returning to his music roots with his first album in 15 years.
Ryan Cabrera is the singer and songwriter behind ubiquitous smashes such as “On the Way Down,” “True” and “Shine On” as well as albums including 2004’s Take It All Away, which hit #8 on the Billboard Top 200, 2005’s You Stand Watching and 2008’s The Moon Underwater. In 2015, Ryan released the EP Wake Up Beautiful.
Tyler Hilton moved to Los Angeles and released a self-titled independent album in 2000. He also indulged his other passion, acting, by appearing in The CW’s “One Tree Hill,” the indie cult favorite “Charlie Bartlett” and playing Elvis Presley in the 2005 Johnny Cash biopic “Walk the Line” (Hilton’s songs have actually been included on the Grammy Award-winning “Walk the Line” soundtrack and on all three of the popular “One Tree Hill” soundtracks). Hilton signed with Maverick Records and released The Tracks Of Tyler Hilton in September 2004.
