O-Town, the boy-band that first formed on MTV’s Making The Band have decided to reunite!
Rejoice boy band lovers! Apparently Jacob Underwood, Dan Miller, Trevor Penick, and Erik-Michael Estrada have decided to bring O-Town back. Unfortunately, Ashley Parker Angel has decided not to be part of the reunion.
The “All Or Nothing” and “Liquid Dreams” singers formed on MTV’s Making The Band in 2000 but split in 2003, after releasing only two albums.
TMZ reports that the boys weren’t happy with Parker-Angel’s decision to decline the reunion. Estrada told TMZ that they were “really hurt” when Parker-Angel turned down the idea.
Parker-Angel told TMZ, “O-Town was one of the greatest chapters of my life, so when the idea of a reunion was brought to me, of course I was intrigued. However I have made the decision not to be a part of an O-Town reunion. It was a difficult decision, but ultimately necessary to move on with the next chapter of my career.”
Parker-Angel just completed his Broadway run in “Hairspray.” His rep says that he will be starring in a film due by the end of the year.
Meanwhile, the boys (or should I say ‘men’ now) of O-Town are busy planning a reunion tour without Parker-Angel.
O-Town fans are overjoyed with this news. Tending to questions from fans on OtownReunion.com, Jacob Underwood posted about the band’s future plans. “I can tell you that we originally planned on doing a few shows and within 48 hours we had one of the biggest and best booking agents (AGI) sign on to book us,” Underwood wrote.
Underwood continued, “There are no solid plans yet, but they are trying to work something out where we get out there. Right now we are writing and listing to music thats current and we would sound good on and enjoy singing. Some good stuff so far.”
I, for one, am so excited to see O-Town back together. Since I watched the first season of Making The Band and saw O-Town live in 2000, I was disappointed when they broke up. Too bad Ashley’s not in, but still so very excited!
Wait…NKOTBSB and O-Town?! (When will Nsync reunite?). Looks like boy-bands are making a comeback, and it’s about time!
