O-Town Reunion: Boyband Returns In 2016 for Tour [Tickets On Sale Now]
Between the Backstreet Boys' touring comeback and NSync's 30-second reunion performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, boyband throwbacks have been all the rage for millennials in the past few years. Next January, pop band O-Town will hit the road for a short string of small-venue shows in the U.S., making stops in big cities like New York City, Philadelphia, and Boston. The band will tour without member Ashley Parker Angel, who amicably opted out of the initial band reunion in 2014. The touring group will consist of all other original members Erik-Michael Estrada, Dan Miller, Trevor Penick and Jacob Underwood. Tickets to see O-Town are on slae now on the secondary market, and are currently averaging just $65 across the band's scheduled dates.
O-Town's tour stretch will hit eight dates starting in Connecticut on January 8, and will run until January 16 in Portland, Maine. Currently, the band's most expensive stop is their January 10 show in Philadelphia at the Theatre of the Living Arts, where an average ticket is $73, with a get-in of $68. The cheapest show is currently the band's Portland date, where an average ticket is $52. Where available, face-value tickets to see O-Town are averaging $35. Seeing their cheapest show is made easiest through Hipmunk.com, where cheap flights to Portland can be booked in advance for the show. To pair with the flight, Portland hotels on Hipmunk start from $52 to create a cost-effective trip.
While this isn't O-Town's first return to the road, the band has been building momentum after releasing their comeback album, Lines & Circles, in 2014. The album marked the band's first release in 12 years. O-Town's self-titled 2001 album has sold 1.7 million copies, and singles, "Liquid Dreams" and "All Or Nothing," reached No. 10 and No. 3 on the Hot 100 chart, as reported by Billboard. The group's second album release, O2, sold just 257,000 copies. O-Town formed in 2000 after the band was created through Lou Pearlman on the ABC reality series Making the Band.
